In a new episode of “I Can’t Believe This is Actually Becoming a Thing,” we’re going to talk about a new app called “LegalFling.”
“LegalFling” is the answer to getting rid of that nagging feeling in the back of your head after a consensual one-night stand that she might turn psycho and accuse you of raping her after she later realizes she wished she hadn’t done the deed with you.
It calls itself the first “blockchain based app to verify explicit consent before having sex” (because every new startup needs to use the word “blockchain” in its description.)
The app allows you to put what you want and don’t want to do beforehand so that there’s no confusion during the experience. It has terms like “Photo & Video,” “Use Condom,” “STD Free,” “Explicit Language,” and “BDSM.”
The idea is that if the “dos and don’ts” are clear ahead of time, no one can call “rape” afterward.
“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.”
Here’s my problem, though: I don’t whether this is a brilliant protection measure that we should start using or the product of some SJWs stroking themselves because they get aroused by “explicit consent.”
Imagine you’ve been trying to get this girl for ages, and one night you get so incredibly close. You get home from the bar, you’re both finally going to do it, but you stop her and say “Hey, before we do this, I need you to download this app, register, and read over some legal documentation before we enter a binding contract.” Seriously, that would be a huge mood killer.
But enough about my inability to decide whether this is a brilliant solution to a problem in a sad world or SJW dribble, you tell me. What do you think of this idea?
