In what reads like something straight out of a BlackMirror episode, a new app has been created for participants to request sexual consent with a single tap on your phone.

LegalFling allows you to send a ‘fling request’ to anyone in your contacts. If the recipient hits the heart button, agreeing to the fling, a legally binding contract is instantly created.

People using the app can even personalise each individual contract from a list in the settings, these include choosing whether condom, requiring the other party be free from a sexually transmitted disease or allowing offensive language during sex. 

If a person were to disregard the settings selected, such as by not wearing a condom, this would be a breach of the contract. As the app creates a digital record of the requirements agreed upon by the participants, it makes it easier to litigate any offence in a court of law the creators claim.

LegalFling states: 

“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."

The app, which is yet to launch, has had a mostly negative response from people on social media.
