A new way to teach youngsters about safe sex has been devised by the Middlesex-London health authority in Canada. It has come up with a sex-ed game, Adventures in Sex City.
The game is available on their website and a player can begin by choosing any one of the characters named Wonder Vag, Willy the Kid, Power Pap or Captain Condom.
Thereafter, they must correctly answer 25 questions about sex to defeat the villain Sperminator, a character with penises for arms.
If a player gives answers a question incorrectly, the Sperminator shoots their character with sperm. But if the answer is correct, the character uses a "condom shield" to shoot the sperm back at the Sperminator.
The game begins by saying: "In the dark of the night Sex City is in panic because of the terrible Sperminator, whose sole mission is to infect all citizens with various sexually transmitted infections", reports The Globe and Mail.
According to Shaya Dhinsa, manager of sexual health at the Middlesex-London Health Unit, they worked directly with teens to develop a resource that would grab their attention and give mportant information.
