An Argentinean company has come up with a ‘consent condom’ that requires 2 people (four hands) to open its packaging. Tulipán Argentina, the company, is highlighting the issue of sexual consent with this new packaging.
To open the pack, the participants need to press four corners of the box together and unlock the condom. The box features a series of circles spread out along its four outer edges, all of which need to be depressed at the same time.
The packages are also printed with a message that can be read as “placer consentido” (“consented pleasure”) or “placer con sentido” (“pleasure with sense”).
The brand’s Twitter handle posted a video that depicts how the “Consent Pack” works.
Tulipan company is a manufacturer of sex toys.
“Tulipán has always spoken of safe pleasure, but for this campaign we understood that we had to talk about the most important thing in every sexual relationship: pleasure is possible only if you both give your consent first,” said a spokesperson of the ad agency that created the design.
The brand has also been spreading the word about its consent packs on social media.
The social media post reads as, “Only if there is consent, there is a pleasure. If it is not a YES, it’s NO,” and “Why this box can only be opened by two? Because this is how consent works in relationships. Everything has to be two.”
Tulipán’s consent packs have been distributed free of charge at bars in Buenos Aires, though they are not currently available on the company’s website. The packs will reportedly be available for purchase later this year.
