Oh, all right. “You have to really want it badly.” That better?
With consent at the forefront of modern conversations about sex, one company is highlighting its importance in a unique way. Argentinian company Tulipán has created a “consent condom” that requires four hands to be opened, intending to raise awareness about consent in the bedroom.
“If they don’t say yes, it means no,” the tagline on a video demonstration says. “Consent is the most important thing in sex.”
Spoken like a true 19-year-old virgin.

Now it should be obvious that the sort of asshat who is blithely unconcerned about consent is even more blithely unconcerned about condoms; it seems unlikely that this product’s message will be heeded in those quarters.
Cool, implement this across the board and fewer young folks will use condoms. Genius, dipshits. https://t.co/DJKuAAVGaG

Members of the Anti-Spontaneity League duly clapped on cue.
