On February 11, Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU), a Canadian public health department for health promotion and prevention, launched Adventures in Sex City, an interactive, online comic book-styled sex education game with the help of Mind Your Mind, a Canadian nonprofit youth organization.
Mind Your Mind announced that eight youth volunteers contributed to the creation of the game. "Reaching teens and youth is a huge challenge for us, that's why we worked directly with them to develop a resource that would catch their attention while providing important information in a fun way," said Shaya Dhinsa, manager of Sexual Health at MLHU.
The object of the game is to avoid getting shot by the Sperminator's sexually transmitted infected-sperm by becoming one of the Sex Squad superheroes - 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) and Wonder Vag (a virgin who believes in true love and promotes abstinence until marriage) - and answering 25 sexual health questions to debunk myths and misconceptions.
The response has been international and varied.
