The Safe Sex License

I can't fathom this actually working as described below. Sex is such primal, instinctual, freeing act. While I applaud and support the company's safe sex mission statement, their Safe Sex License turns what would normally be a passionate, emotional act into something that feels rather mechanical, and that sucks (no pun intended)!

And besides that, will anyone actually use this thing? If a woman I was about to have sex with presented me with her very own Safe Sex License, I think I'd actually have a good laugh first, and then put on a freaking condom - which is what I would do anyway!

Also, might this actually be encouraging un-protected sex?


- Bklyn-based STF promotes responsible uglies-bumping via a Safe Sex License, a clinically backed, wallet-sized photo ID that says "I'm so clean, the condom should wear me". How it works: sign up online, download the clinic verification form, and get tested; mail the results to STF, and they'll send a card w/ your unique member ID and photo (remember: nothing says "trust me" like Blue Steel). Then simply hand the card to whomever, reveal your secret password and ID, and tell him/her to dial the card's 1-800 number; he/she will then be privy to the dates and results of your last two HIV/AIDS tests, irrefutable proof that you were disease-free on at least two specific occasions in the past. STF also provides accounts for herpes, gonorrhea, and other STDs that require more frequent testing.
