The app LegalFling provides contracts that guarantees both parties are consenting before a hookupAll someone has to do is open the app send the contract, and if the person agrees it is legally bindingThe contract asks specific things like whether parties require condoms to be used, or allows pictures and videos to be taken, and consent can be withdrawn at any time
With the topic of sexual harassment and assault dominating the conversation these days, it certainly makes dating, and certainly hooking up, a whole lot tougher. Well, a new app is about to change all of that.
In case you missed it, the site LegalFling is determined to guarantee that both parties in a hookup are in agreement about what's going to happen by creating a contract that both have to agree to. All parties who are about to get busy have to do is open up the app and send a request, and if the other party accepts, the app claims they have now entered into a legally binding agreement that notes they are down for the hookup.
And it’s not just a yes or no type of contract. It does ask things like whether the parties require condoms to be used, allows pictures and videos to be taken, and even what they may be into. And just because someone initially agrees, doesn’t mean they can’t change their mind, with consent allowed to be withdrawn at any point. What’s more, should either party breach the so-called contract, like say, lying about STDs, they could wind up in court.
If this app sounds like a good idea to you, you’re going to have to wait a little bit before you can use it. Right now it’s waiting approval by both Apple and Google.
