SexyPolitics combines sex, politics ó and voter education

http://www.thestandard.com/news/2008/03/11/sexypolitics...

The combination of sex and politics isnít just in the news, itís a good way to drive voter awareness. Which is why a new site called Sexypolitics.com is such a smart idea.

Essentially, itís an interactive quiz, where a female or male model of your choosing (pictured below) strips down to their underwear for you, as you correctly answer politically-charged questions.



You can take quizzes on political issues of the day, on general political awareness, or on presidential candidates (your correspondent scored a 9/10 on the Obama quiz). You even get to choose your own strip-tease theme music. If you take too much time to answer the question, you lose the question. A timer and and a points section on the quiz keep track of your progress.

Note: This site is most likely safe to go to while youíre at work (although taking the quizzes has been a little awkward for me in the Starbucks where Iíve been trying it out). You can also opt out of the strip entirely by clicking on an obvious ďskip the stripĒ button on the quizzes.

The questions and the rest of the information on the site is more cleverly written than most web startups youíll see, because its writers were striking professional writers. Hereís a screenshot of a sample question, answered correctly (the screenshot was taken right before an article of clothing was removed):



You donít just get to see attractive people take their clothes off when you prove how wonky you are ó you also earn points that you can use to purchase political books or clever politically-related t-shirts.
