New app allows partners to record sexual consent to avoid false rape claims

We-Consent app 
By: Tanya Malhotra

(Scroll down for video) A new app will allow users to record sexual consent with partners before encounters in order to be able to avoid false rape claims if the police gets involved.

We-Consent allows users to record a 20-second video message on their phones, in which they say they are about to have sex.

The app then takes a photo of the user and the sexual partner in order to be able to show them to the police if problems arise.

The app only works if the camera detects human faces and both sides are heard saying "yes." We-Consent asks users to confirm their names before they are asked to say yes or no.

If the users say “yes,” the application responds with “consent confirmed. Have fun.” If the app cannot detect a clear yes response, it advises against having sex.

The developers of the app said that this technology will end misunderstandings about rape. Rape support groups slammed the app, saying that it sends a message that most rape claims are made up.
