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 toin 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.”
Ad agency BBDO Argentina created the “Consent Pack” for Tulipán. The box can only be opened if four hands simultaneously press buttons on each side of the box, unlocking the condom inside.
The limited edition condom packages were placed at bars and events around Buenos Aires. The company is also sharing information about the product on social media with the hashtag #PlacerConsentido, or “permitted pleasure.” They will be available to purchase later this year.
Except, several people have objected the condom might be misused as a means of “proving” consent in rape trials, even if this is not truly the case.
The worrying thing is that this frames consent as a ‘discussion’ and implies that the real issue is that women might make it up/exaggerate after consensual sex. This is a product designed essentially to protect men from rape accusations, not to protect women from rape
