Share your views about sexual consent apps and the law

Sweden has passed new legislation that recognises sex without explicit consent is rape.

Under previous laws in the country, a person could only be prosecuted for rape if it was proven they used threats or violence. From 1 July, when the new laws come into force, rape can now be proved in Sweden if the accuser did not give their explicit verbal agreement or clearly demonstrate their desire to engage in sexual activity.

Elsewhere there has been a rise in the use of consent apps, as people look to sign legally binding “digital contracts” by entering into an agreement using their phones.

We would like to hear your views on consent and the law, and whether you have experience of using consent apps or attending consent classes or workshops.
