Australian police boss suggests app to prove sexual consent

An Australian cop has suggested a phone app be developed to document sexual consent in a bid to improve conviction rates in sex crime cases. ’Technology doesn’t fix everything, but ... it plays such a big role in people meeting at the moment’ the NSW Police Commissioner said. His comments have sparked a backlash, with some saying such a platform is potentially open to abuse and is short-sighted.

Just sign these consent forms and you are done! Congratulations, you are now allowed to dry hump your partner! Remember, big brother is always right! This is for your own good!

The biggest problem with an idea like this is big tech and potential hackers having a record of your sex life

It’s not going to make much different to sex assault conviction rates, compliance and uptake rate is going to be low, it would never be the norm. It’s actually more useful for regret/false rape accusation situations.

So the rapist holds a knife to your neck and tells you to click the consent button. Everyday amazes me how completely stupid 90% of the ppl on the planet are

I... am really okay with this idea. No more false rape accusations. Yeah, it'll kill the mood at first, but it'll become 2nd nature. Like how ppl ask to add me on insta cus its faster than phone numbers at gatherings.

I, for one, love the idea that a corporation will now have a database on who I'm f&cking! There's no way that data will be sold!

Why not make a Yelp type app where you rate your partner? For some of the narsacists out ther getting a bad review would be worse than getting charged with assault /s

Consent apps are already a thing. It was even used in Daybreak on Netflix. No reason someone couldn't try using one. I don't see the issue unless he's saying you must use the app to have sex. I don't think it's a good idea but it's an idea that's been around already.

I mean I get it though, the very concept of sex is a continuous act, it isn't something that happens in an instant ( for most of us :c ) So what happens if he tries some fricked up shiz that she isn't into after he gets the signature? What if she revokes consent but is incapable of unrestraining herself? He basically has a pardon letter for acts commited after the signature was acquired. I don't have a better alternative, except maybe two signatures. One before and one after.

It's a good conversation starter. Certainly loads of issues as it stands especially when consent can be withdrawn at any time - but - we need to have the conversations with our kids. In a serious, in-depth, detailed scenarios and circumstances; and then you have the horrific consequences. RESPECT

Would creating legally binding documents for intimacy create opportunities for breach of contract suits for signing parties refusal to participate in stated activity? It may be argued that it was also a contractual agreement. What are the provisions for removal of consent? (Serious question)

What if you sign this, get divorced/break up, then are raped by your ex? Or, your signature is doctrinated? Or you are drunk/high? Drugged? That's not to mention, hacking, and threats/intimidation into signing. This could potentially do more harm than good.
