The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, ever the crusader against contraceptive misconceptions, has launched a new website dedicated to debunking one particularly absurd myth: havesexstandingup.com. In a report [PDF] released last year, the NCPTUP reported that eighteen percent of men believe that they can reduce the chance of pregnancy by doing it standing up. Havesexstandingup.com—-and its corresponding faux-PSA (above)—-hopes to convince men to stand up and fuck, with a condom on this time.The campaign’s corresponding music video (after the jump) gets dangerously deep into the “have sex standing up!” message before being like, “but seriously, wear a condom because that shit DOES NOT STOP BABIES.”
