I don't agree. Anyone that is being forced to have sex can be forced to open a condom ... It just doesn't make all that much sense to me.

Opinions ... ??

Well, they're not legally binding- it's not as if simply showing that a woman opened the condom automatically clears the accused. If a woman gives a truthful statement saying that whilst the ordeal happened she opened the condom, it proves nothing.

Although, now that I think about it... what about in cases where dape rape drugs are used? Just as when a guy gets a woman (or another man, for that matter) totally drunk, the victim may not remember opening the condom, and this could be used to say that even though they didn't have their full mental faculties, they did consent nevertheless... hmm, I don't like the idea any more!

Not making any sense here either. This quote said it best:

"What on earth makes him think that a man who can coerce a woman to have sex against her will could not coerce her in the same way into opening a box of condoms?"

'Yes I agree to . . . ' what sort of sex exactly? Intercourse, oral . . . coerced? There are a lot of things I'm sure I'd agree to at knifepoint that I wouldn't agree to otherwise. And just what part of the condom proves the other party's in a state to agree. This is such a rotten idea it's almost laughable.

Dumb idea.

I agree to.....that I won't change my mind once you start doing something to me in bed that I do not want?

This inventor quite obviously doesn't think one can say No once the condom is unpacked.

Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

Ya know, the first thing I thought when I read that nonsense was of a girl I knew in high school. The poor, poor thing was date raped and very few people believed her. Why? Because she begged the guy to at least wear a condom, which he did. Many took that as a sign of consent, but it wasn't. He forced himself on her, but she had the presence of mind to try to protect herself in another way. And that doesn't make what he did to her okay. Not by a LONG shot.

I don't agree with this. Just because the condom is opened does that mean that you must have sex? There are lots of different cirumstances that this guys little condom thingy won't work on.
