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!
'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.

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.
