Users "log" their condom use on Wheredidyouwearit.com.

 

ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "a Quick Response (QR) code, commonly scanned by BlackBerry handsets and other smartphones, have made their way to a number of condom wrappers distributed in the United States."

 

The report explained further: "The scannable codes enable users to post the location of their sexual activity via a website called Wheredidyouwearit.com, similar to other geo-location services such as Foursquare or Facebook Places."

 

The report quoted Nathan Engebretson, the new media coordinator for the group Planned Parenthood, who said, "We hope the site promotes discussions within relationships about condoms and helps to remove perceived stigmas that some people may have about condom use. Where Did You Wear It attempts to create some fun around making responsible decisions." The report noted that Planned Parenthood distributed 55,000 QR-coded condoms last week.
