Privates: Sex Ed for Gamers?

File this under: Stephanie will most definitely play this if only to judge.

Zombie Cow Studios has partnered with Channel 4 to produce Privates, a game wherein tiny condom-hatted marines attack STD's. No, really.

Nothing would make me happier than if the game had load screens (hee hee) peppered with comprehensive sex-ed tidbits, but thanks to the press release, I'm inclined to think it will be otherwise:
...pregnant, waddling teenagers take up the full width of the pavement with their oversized triplet pushchairs, unaware that their rampant, perpetual humping has filled them to the brim with all manner of grotty infections.
Hmmm, slut shaming much? What about the - to use some British slang - fuckwits that helped get them knocked up? Hmmmm?

However, if that screenshot is any indication (condom marines shooting sperm?)it might also, you know, discuss contraception and STI's and in this day and age any discussion is a move in the right direction.

At least it is all-kinds of orientation encompassing. To quote:
BRITAIN. Land of Hope and Glory-holes.
