An Argentine sex toy retailer, Tulipan, has created the world’s first “consent condom,” that requires the consenting partners to open the condom packet together. The uniquely designed packets will only open when the two parties press certain points on its box. The initiative has been praised for trying to drive home the point about consent.

I think this is less about preventing rapes and more about normalising consent. Very first world, agreed. But I think in a non-violent, non-aggressive scenario, getting both parties to open the condom together is a pretty cool non-verbal way of saying “yes, I want to do this.”
