If there are two things I love, it’s safe sex and HTML5. Bedsider, an “internet community” aimed at not getting you or your friend knocked up, is a terrific, kooky source of contraceptive gems. The best part? Giant condom wall!
Have you ever seen an IUD before? It’s a lot like an IED — frightening, complicated and sort of jury-rigged looking. But with one click, I can look at the different types, details on cost, side effects and privacy. And hey, it’s 99 per cent effective!
You can even sort the sperm blockade by fun categories, like “party-ready” (easy enough to use while blacked out!), “easy to hide” (for those with tight pants and/or draconian parents), and Gizmodo favourite, “do me now”.
But hey, I have a question for The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, non-profit creator of the site, and Chairman Robert Wm. Blum, M.D., M.P.H, Ph.D. of Johns Hopkins University — is pulling out really 78 per cent effective under normal use? Should you guys really be encouraging that if you don’t want people getting unexpectedly preggers?
They are correct, however, that pulling out — “the kung fu of contraception” — is “As inexpensive as it gets.” All in all, a great source of sex info, with a nice splash of great web design. [Bedsider]
