Now, more than ever, we live in an era where one misread sign or signal can land you in a humiliating and actionable position (hello Aziz Ansari). Like it or not, the spontaneity of a great date ending in the sex appears to be eroding. That’s why guys must be smart, alert, and ready to protect themselves.
That’s where the Legal Fling mobile app comes in. Currently pending approval from Apple and Google, this app hopes to seal the deal before you do. The way it works is this: say you’re in a bar, you meet a girl with a great personality (or just a great rack), you’d like to retire to a more “intimate setting.” The app will allow you to send her a “request” stating your intention to have sex. From there, she can accept your request, and thereby provide consent.
It doesn’t end there, either. You can add “terms” to what the night might require. Condoms required? Check. BDSM? Check. Photo and video? Check. Free of any funky diseases? Check. If either one of you goes against this, you could find yourselves in court. Of course, consent can also be withdrawn at any time…but make sure you’re paying attention to your phone just in case she changes her mind.
