Canadian Sex Ed Game is Weird but Informative

| 14 Feb 2010 15:42

A Canadian health authority has enlisted the help of its target demographic to make an educational videogame about safe sex.

The Sperminator is threatening the city, and only Captain Condom, Power Pap, Willy the Kid, and Wonder Vag, better known as 'The Sex Squad', can stop him from covering the world in his evil sperm.

No, that's not a joke. He also has penis-shaped hands, and that's not a joke either.

Adventures in Sex City is a educational game made by the Middlesex-London Health Unit of London, Ontario in collaboration with a group of 16-20 year olds and the youth mental health organization Mind your Mind.

Gameplay is simple, you get asked a bunch of questions about safe sex, and when for every right answer, you deflect one of the Sperminator's 'shots' back at him. Answer enough questions correctly, and the Sperminator will be cured of the sexually transmitted disease he's picked up and the city will be saved. Answer incorrectly and you won't raise your condom shield in time and the Sperminator's shot will hit you, but you'll still get an explanation of the answer.

The local Catholic education authority has already banned the game from its schools, and there are likely to be parents and teachers who find the game inappropriate, but personally, I applaud any effort to educate young about sex. Maybe next time make it sound less like a dodgy hentai movie though, eh? You can try Adventures in Sex City for yourself here.
