New sexual consent app sparks controversy

A new app is sparking a hot debate across campus colleges. Sasie is a sexual consent app which requires potential partners to read a contract, take a photo and sign before engaging in any intimate activity.

Creators say it creates a legal, binding document of consent and intent. It was put together specifically for college campuses to combat what they say is the problem of sexual assault on campus.

However, there are many issues with apps such as Sasie.

One concern is if someone changes their mind after signing the contract. Some say it could essentially give potential rapist evidence they need to later exonerate themselves.

Also, some are questioning if the couple would even stop to read the contract.

Creators say it is legally binding but there is no test case yet. Once uploaded, the information goes to a server that only police, a disciplinary board or a subpoena can access.
