Ever wonder what it would be like to sleep with a mean film director, a socialite or the guy who does voice-over in movie trailers, or perhaps with one of your Facebook friends?
As part of a new safe-sex initiative, the Swedish Institute for Communicable Disease Control (SMI) have launched an app called Provligget, or Test Fuck, allowing you to do just that.
“The focus is on condom use… We’re trying to get this issue on the agenda,” explained Karin Raagsjoe, who came up for the idea for the app for SMI.
The app allows users to test-fuck with a range of fantasy characters, including a personal trainer, an unfaithful woman and a handyman, all portrayed by more or less famous Swedish actors.
Once users make their choice, they are asked if they want to use a condom, and then to record their own moaning and groaning, which is then mixed with the sexually elated voice of their character of choice.
The whole time, messages pop up to ask things like: “Did you know that people who suggest using a condom are seen as confident and considerate?” and “Did you know Swedes are among the worst in the world at using a condom?”
If none of the 11 characters tickle your fancy, you can also choose to send a request to one of your Facebook friends asking if they are up for a test fling.
“The two of you can then mix your voices together. The app is a fun way to raise awareness and get people to visit the STI website, which provides condom-use tips and information on where to get tested for sexually transmittable diseases.
Swedes are slack about using condoms. As few as 40 percent use them.
