Listen Now: LegalFling
The one night stand is becoming a legally binding contract.
There is a controversial new app in London called LegalFling which is hoping to clear up the issue of consenting sex between partners with legal contracts. In light of the #MeToo movement and #TimesUp, the software wants to make it clear what each partner is and is not comfortable with in the bedroom.
It’s also meant to help avoid any false claims of sexual misconduct. Here’s how it works: The app will send your request for a little alone time to your contact of choice along with your list of do’s and don’ts. Those include taking pictures or video, protection and whether your partner is STD free.
In a statement on the company’s website a spokesman says consensual sex should be fun and stress free but these days, anything can go wrong. So in order to avoid things such as unwanted videos, medical problems or criminal charges LegalFling makes sure both parties are covered. Any offense is a breach of contract.
After all nothing says romance like reading the fine print.
