Making sure your hookup is STD-free? There's an app for that12/26/2012
Teens love technology, but can it help them have safer sex? That's the thinking behind a new smartphone app that lets teens – or anyone, actually – exchange STD statuses by "bumping" phones. (Ready your "bump before you hump," "bump before you grind," and "bump phones before you bump uglies" jokes now.) The doctor behind MedXSafe, who calls it "safe bumping," says the app is perfect for use at a bar or frat party and promotes STD testing and discussions. Of course, other experts warn it could promote a false sense of security. “Does it come with a condom?” quipped one. A condom-dispensing smartphone app? Developers, hop on it. [Source]
