AdAge today reported that privacy group CASPIAN (we agree, shitty name for a group, privacy or otherwise) slammed Levi's for including RFID tags which could ultimately be used for tracking more than inventory....as in the wearer's whereabouts. We believe the bigger story, which went unreported, was that privacy group BALLDIC made a similar public slamming of the leading maker of condoms, Trojan, for also injecting RFID tags in the rim section of their condoms. The company believes that knowing the exact location of each and every condom is the best way for inventory control management and promises that they will not use the technology to identify cheating husbands or other non sanctioned sexual behavior.
WAPH (Wives Against Philandering Husbands) spokesperson, Muffy Conshohocken, commented that her organization is a strong believer in the benefits of radio tagged condoms and is even considering partnering with the condom maker to enable better tracking mechanisms for additional "inventory" purposes. Word of warning to husbands. If you absolutely have to bang your secretary, think Durex or big brother might be right there in bed with you.
