You have to really want it bad

Oh, all right. “You have to really want it badly.” That better?

Anyway, this is supposed to be a Really Good Thing:

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.

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

    Yeah, I was gonna say: if one partner is unwilling, not being able to open the condom isn’t going to stop the other one. In fact, it may make things WORSE. But isn’t that the theme of the decade? “Making things worse since 2010”?

    Maybe a year or two longer than that…
