Today is World AIDS Day. In order to celebrate, and increase awareness about safe-sex, a German company has released a fun new video game called "Cock-Out." Users receive a special condom along with the game, put it on, and then use their penises to battle a green HIV-monster. It's like a Wii controller for your dick. The company's motto, appropriately enough, is "Learn By Doing." 

The motivating force behind the game's creation is that unsafe sex — especially among young men — is still a huge problem in Germany (and the rest of the world). More than one quarter of men don’t use protection the first time they have sex. By creating a game that's fun to play — and full of sex-ed details — they imagine they will raise awareness. 

Which is cool, I guess. Or it would be, if it wasn't so absurd. I mean, is the condom multi-use? If so, is it dishwasher safe? Are there multi-player options? 

Also, there is this totally absurd video, which looks like a bunch of German guys masturbating to dance music (what else?). But it's really a safe-sex PSA. So, happy World AIDS Day everyone and happy viewing:
