There’s an app to create “consensual sex” contracts

There’s an app to create “consensual sex” contracts

Is there a more perfect example of how neo-feminism and the sexual revolution have ruined sex?

Is there a more perfect example of how neo-feminism and the sexual revolution have ruined sex? I don’t think so.

Before heading out on a date, booty call, or a late-night Netflix and chill, LegalFling allows users to send a sexual consent contract via a phone app.

From LegalFling:

Sex should be fun and safe, but nowadays a lot of things can go wrong. Think of unwanted videos, withholding information about STDs and offensive porn reenactment. While you’re protected by law, litigating any offenses through court is nearly impossible in reality. LegalFling creates a legally binding agreement, which means any offense is a breach of contract. By using the Live Contracts protocol, your private agreement is verifiable using the blockchain and enforceable with a single click.

“A lot can go wrong.” Yes, like hooking up will countless people, treating sex as an act as casual as reading a book, and then blaming other people for remorse-filled, poor decision-making. But I digress.

Users can even select the kinds of sexual engagement they’re comfortable with:

Everything, and I mean, everything about this is wrong.

If you must have a contract to protect yourself from the person with whom you want to have sex, I don’t know, MAYBE DON’T HAVE SEX THEM?!

Hookup culture has destroyed intimacy and has successfully perverted sex from a joy and connection between two loving partners in a committed relationship into a legal contract.

Ten years ago, this was parody. Sadly, it’s become reality.

Wait. Does this mean if the female agrees to sex, she is contractually REQUIRED to follow thru? If she says at the last minute she changed her mind, and the male forces it on her, is that not still rape? This thing makes no sense. Conversely, if she contracted to no sex, and then changes her mind and has consensual sex with the guy, isn’t he in jeopardy of bein accused of violating the contract? Liberals make no sense.

    I think to make it a real binding contract, and just to make sure there are absolutely no misconceptions at the onset, an appropriate amount of money needs to change hands upfront.

    We know from the college Kangaroo Kourts that consent can be withdrawn at any time. Therefore, this app is really incomplete. It needs both “In Consent” and and “Out Consent” buttons. Then the two people having sex can stare at their phones and press “in, out, in, out, in, out” repeatedly until they’re done.

    Not sure if this app was intended to protect the man from the event that the woman changes her mind about the encounter later, but…

    We all know that this would never protect the man later, as messed up as our courts are over the issue, any contract that would work to the advantage of the defendant, in such cases, would simply be declared void, for whatever reason, real or imagined.

    Consent is revocable without consideration; however, consideration in this circumstance would probably render any contract void as against public policy (like the old heart balm statutes) and illegal (as constituting prostitution….

Well, we used to deal with this with “ladies” and “gentlemen”. So much degeneration…

And eventually, this site will be hacked. Then the proclivities of the members, along with frequency of usage, will be either dumped on a public website or held for ransom.

Ha! And there are people who say that romance is dead.

Really, all I need now to make my life complete is to automate the whole thing. A robot I can send to the … whatever it is, “encounter” perhaps … while I stay home and do something interesting. Make a ship in a bottle, maybe … I always wanted to find some time to do that.

sounds a lot like Muslim temporary marriage –
The temporary marriage, or nikah mut’ah, is an ancient Islamic practice that unites man and woman as husband and wife for a limited time. Historically it was used so that a man could have a wife for a short while when travelling long distances.

Keep in mind that the woman can always and at any time withdraw consent, including retroactively. She does not have to notify the man that consent was withdrawn until he is served with a subpoena, phone app or not. And indeed, a court will probably rule that a woman consenting over the app is not valid because the app supports the Patriarchy.

It is a scam.

So, if we have “sex education” in the 8th grade, we need to have Contracts 101 in the 7th grade and Criminal Procedure in the 9th grade?

I’m glad I grew up back when this was a fun subject!

The left has made dates almost indistinguishable from the transactions involved in prostitution.

Does it offer notarization services and contractual adjustments in real-time?

No? Then there is only one solution, the final solution: Planned Coitus (PC).

    We could set up a government bureaucracy to handle all the messy parts of match-making so we didn’t have to worry about it. Let the government handle all aspects of romantic encounters including demographic matching, frequency of encounters, duration…

    There is a danger that the left will take this satire and turn it into reality.

Solves nothing. She can still claim coercion, or that he tapped the “accept” on her phone.

I thought that the purpose of a contract was to establish the parameters around a meeting of the minds, not a meeting of the, ah, naughty bits. And how do the parties to the contract establish the value of the consideration, or for that matter, even define what it is?

    Edward in reply to MTED. | January 18, 2018 at 10:10 am

    People have been contracting for services involving the meeting of the “naughty bits” for far longer than most other businesses have existed. The contract is verbal, sets the amount agreed upon as the value of the services rendered and defines what those services will be.

    But you knew all that. 😉

The only way for the male to protect himself is to video tape the entire encounter.

    Tom Servo in reply to Fen. | January 18, 2018 at 8:34 am

    And then to immediately send copies of that tape to all of his friends, just in case the original somehow was destroyed.

I suppose this was inevitable, yet there’s not only revocation of consent to consider but also the possibility of an “I was pressured into it” accusation (or even, “he made me tap the phone” or, “he gained control of the phone and ‘consented’ for me).

But if even repeated after-the-fact romantic texts sent by the accuser to the accused are insuficient evidence that an assault almost certainly didn’t happen (as has been the case in some Kollege Kangaroo Kourt cases) then how could something like this ever hope to prevail?

After all, this app doesn’t come close to measuring the “enthusiastic” in “enthusiastic consent,” nor can it measure the degree to which the parties may be too impaired to consent, let alone address the tragedy of morning-after regret (and especially when that “morning after” may not manifest until many months later, perhaps when some helpful person encourages the accuser realize that, yes, no matter what you said or did at the time, it must have been assault after all, for why else would you regret it?).

A “safe harbor” app? Why, jujst the use of such an app will be considered evidence of applying undue pressure to consent!

This app is a classic case of the requirements changing during development.

If the light of all the recent Hollywood abuse charges, the app should have a stepped approach to consent. But even that would get complicated. Would kissing come before holding hands? Where would caressing backside during photo ops fit it?
