Sex Squad - man with penises for hands questions kids about sexual health February 16, 2010 5:05 AMSubscribe
There’s a new ally in the fight against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and misinformation about sex: the Middlesex-London Sex Squad. The team of cartoon superheroes is part of Adventures in Sex City, a new online game launched today by the Middlesex-London Health Unit. (NSFW) In Adventures in Sex City players can assume the role of one of the four superheroes who make up the Middlesex-London Sex Squad:
- Captain Condom, a scientist, who, after a freak lab accident is now half man, half condom;
- Power Pap, a sexually active woman who believes strongly in getting tested regularly;
- Willy the Kid, because he never grew taller than four feet, he joined the Sex Squad to prove that size doesn’t matter;
- Wonder Vag, a virgin who believes in true love and promotes abstinence until marriage
via Rock, Paper, Shotgun: As a game, it’s just a tedious collection of yes/no questions. As a spectacle, it’s beyond words.
It’s a unique document of crudity, naivety and important advice about condom usage – I rather fear its creators were so busy amusing themselves by seeing how many sex gags public funding is prepared to cover that the educational element got kinda lost.
