Cue the creation of a billion dollar "consent" industry when really people just need to fundamentally respect each other and communicate.

"We'll get to that part after we're done selling you consent gimmicks"
The other issue with this ridiculous condom packaging is that it actually reinforces the idea that if two people consented to beginning sex, that this eliminates the need for ongoing consent.

So they opened the condom together. Great. That doesn't mean consent can't be withdrawn
I mean the reasons the "Consent Condom" idea is nonsense are numerous

It's ableist
It doesn't solve any problems
It proves nothing
It doesn't preclude assault
It doesn't teach consent
It can be used against victims
It can be opened by others

I could go on all day.
But the real issue is that you cannot buy anything to replace:

1) Respecting your partner
2) Establishing trust
3) Communicating clearly
4) Making "no" a safe answer
5) Always stopping at no
6) Never using pressure
7) Checking in constantly

You just have to do it.

That's it.
