Sperminator Almost Ready to Go Again

October 27, 2010 -

Earlier this year we told you about an online game featuring a penis-armed villain that was designed to educate kids on the perils of sexually-transmitted diseases. That game, Adventures in Sex City, has proven so popular that a sequel is in the works.

Created under the direction of London, Ontario’s Middlesex-London Health Unit, the original game featured the characters Captain Condom, Power Pap, Willy the Kid and Wonder Vag, and had players answer sex-related questions in order to repel the seed of the evil villain, and sufferer of a sexually transmitted infection (STI), dubbed the Sperminator.

Planning for part two of the game is already underway, as Cnews reports that eight youths have been recruited in order to participate in focus groups and education sessions that will lay the groundwork for the new content. The Health Unit stated its youth advisors “directly influenced” all aspects of the original game.

Health Unit manager Shaya Dhinsa said that response to Adventures in Sex City was “very strong,“ and added, “We have had literally tens of thousands of people play and many have told us they’ve learned a lot from answering the questions that are the basis for the game.”

All this game needs is a catchy theme song.

Re: Sperminator Almost Ready to Go Again

Makes me think of the porno version, which was also calle "Sperminator."  The tagline was, "I'll come again!"

Re: Sperminator Almost Ready to Go Again

As much as this is educational I have been laughing the entire time.  The hero names...the title of the article?

I guess since they are the only folks to do a game like this they don't face any stiff competition.  It will be a long hard road ahead of them for this kind of education to be mainstream but with this success they have yet to reach their peak.  I just hope they don't blow it.

Yeah, I clicked through solely to leave a comment expressing my amusement at the article's title.  Good show, nameless Gamepolitics editor.

MaskedPixelanteSWAT teams should be banned until they; 1. Learn not to walk into enemy fire, 2. Learn to throw the flashbang INTO the doorway, not the frame and 3. Stop complaining that I'm in their way.09/21/2014 - 9:53pm
Craig R.I'm getting of the opinion that SWAT teams nationwide should be banned. This probably isn't even the most absurd situation in which they've been used.09/21/2014 - 9:26pm

E. Zachary KnightThis is called a police state people. When public officials can send SWAT raids after anyone for any offense, we are no longer free.09/21/2014 - 6:41pm

MechaTama31quik: But even if it did break, at worst it is only as bad as the powder. Even that is assuming that it is dangerous through skin contact, which is not a given if its delivery vehicle is a syringe.09/21/2014 - 4:30pm

quiknkoldSyringes can break. And in a transcontinental delivery, the glass could've broken when crushed. I work in a mail center. Shit like this is super serious09/21/2014 - 3:25pm
E. Zachary KnightIt doesn't matter what is inside the needle. As long as it requires him to take the step of purposefully injecting himself, the threat of the substance is as close to zero as you can get.09/21/2014 - 1:27pm
quiknkoldEzach: I'm not talking about the needle. I'm talking about what's inside. Geeze. Depending on what it is, the sender could be guilty of bioterrorism.09/21/2014 - 12:51pm
E. Zachary Knightquiknkold, No. That syringe is not worse than white powder or a bomb. The syringe requires the recipient to actually inject themselves. Not true for other mail threats.09/21/2014 - 12:49pm
Andrew EisenThe closest to a threat I ever received was a handwritten note slipped under my door that read "I KNOW it was you." Still no idea what that was about. I think the author must have got the wrong apartment.09/21/2014 - 12:28pm
