Anywhere but there. What’s old is new.
Years ago, Antioch College, in an attempt to make sexual harassment and abuse and date rape a thing of the past, instituted a sexual consent form, with explicit permission to be sought and granted for each and every sex-related advance.
I don’t know if this nonsense still goes on there, but it surely created the “Talk Dirty To Me” porn film series.
Now comes attorney Evan Spencer of Colorado-based Protect Condoms, Inc., with his one-page, “pre-sexual agreement” form. He’s sold more than 4,000 forms at $7.99 each. Not bad. In fact, pretty good scam, as the agreement’s not worth the paper it’s printed on, and Spencer knows this better than anyone, being a lawyer.
Nevertheless. Said Spencer, in a story in today’s Washington Post, “If you’re a professional athlete on the road, and you encounter someone you don’t know, certainly a person who is a man of means will want to be protected by something like this.”
Amazing that Spencer doesn’t even consider the possiblity that a “girl of means” might need to protect herself from some guy who’ll later say she violated him.
Spencer got the idea after the Kobe Bryant “he said/she said” that destroyed these two people’s lives, as well as those of their families.
