LONDON, Ont. - Sex superheroes Captain Condom and Wonder Vag, characters from a controversial online game created by an Ontario health unit, are now live action. And bar-hopping.
The two main characters in the Middlesex London Health Unit’s online game, Adventures in Sex City, are now coming to life at downtown London, Ont., bars, handing out condoms, talking to patrons about preventing sexually transmitted infections and promoting safe sex.
The pair started their prowls last weekend and were a hit, a health unit spokesperson said Friday.
Captain Condom and Wonder Vag are members of the Sex Squad, characters in the sexual health question and answer game aimed at young people.
The game was designed by the Middlesex London Health Unit. Despite being banned from local Catholic school classrooms, the original Adventures in Sex City game garnered international attention when it was launched in 2010. A sequel was released this year.
