The Cartography of Safe Sex
The Where Did You Wear It map from Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest is designed to promote safe sex. Users of the map are asked to check-in and report where they last used a condom. Reported check-ins (adjusted for anonymity) are then added to the map.
The map will hopefully prove useful in promoting the issue of safe sex but I'm guessing it could also prove useful to Planned Parenthood in targeting their support.
Users are asked to give a few details such as age, sex, the nature of the sexual encounter and the reasons why they used a condom. This data coupled with the location data could prove useful to Planned Parenthood in targeting their sexual health campaigns.
