A human-sized penis is making a big impact on unsuspecting people in public places in Norway by spraying them with golden confetti.

19-year-old Philip van Eck gets paid to don a giant penis costume in a bid to get more people to use protection during sexual intercourse.

This is a campaign by sexual health charity RFSU that is targeting young people in the country.

About 23 000 Norwegians contract chlamydia every year, according to Norway’s Tønsberg Blad newspaper.

Chlamydia is sexually transmitted infection (STI) that may or may not include symptoms. You can get chlamydia by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the infection and is curable with antibiotics.

Symptoms for women to look out for are abnormal vaginal discharge and/or a burning sensation when urinating.

Symptoms for men can include a discharge from the penis, a burning sensation when urinating as well as pain and swelling in the testicles.

RFSU marketing manager Christina Placht told Tønsberg Blad that people aged between 16-25 are not swayed by facts or scaremongering when it comes to creating awareness for safer sex.

Pernille Berg of Involve! Advertising, the agency who produced the film, pointed out that the campaign was meant to be fun, exciting and a little naughty - just like sex.
