Sally Bratton, who sits on the board of the Health Services Association for Californian Community Colleges, which represents two million students on 112 campuses, said: ‘These contracts are a very good idea. They take away any doubt or misunderstanding, which is one of the leading causes of accusations of sexual assault. When you have apps like Tinder making sex purely recreational, why not have an app or contract to protect yourself?’ But Jasmin Enriquez, 23, who was date-raped as a student at Pennsylvania State University, branded sex contracts ‘pure evil’, saying: ‘They are nothing more than stunts and money-generating schemes which distract from the real issue which is education. We need to educate students of both sexes. Informed consent is an ongoing, shifting process which cannot be encapsulated in a contract. A contract fails to safeguard a woman who might change her mind after signing it.’
And it might protect that bloke who thought that yes meant yes as well.
Rather the point isn’t it?
