  • Lol! I think 84 backers says it all. If you can’t actually communicate, then you’ve got bigger problems. This isn’t helping. It’s driving you further apart. Save yourself 37 bucks and buy and read Dare to Lead by Brene Brown .

  • It would be interesting to extend it to a line of products. You could wear something like this out, reducing those awkward “whose place?” conversations. And it gives a whole new meaning to “initial public offering “.

    And there should be a whole bunch of them in the pack. Really, you’ll want them all

    And there should be a whole bunch of them in the pack. Really, you’ll want them all over the house. Perhaps in the cars as well. Not to mention camping.

    And you’ll need a “where’s my button” app, you know, in case your parter takes one (or more) with them on a business trip.

    You could have a music version. Instead of lightning up in you both “anonymously” hit the button it breaks into your favorite get-it-on music.

    And it should link to your computer. You’ll definitely want to find out what the data tells you. Or not, but then you’ll need to know instead.

    Tech is great!

  • Wait, what?

    ‘If both partners tap their buttons in the same 15-minute "consensus window," both buttons will glow green, and you'll know the other person is horny too.’

    Not to get in the way of innovation, but this seems to give too much credence to the average millennial introvert. Yes, some are naturally

  • consent is clearly a good thing and new ways to communicate consent are clearly a good thing. Still though....

  • And if only two people that are somewhat in the vicinity of attracted to each other should talk... what could happen next? Bipartisan cooperation?

  • The tweets on the articles are hilarious🤣🤣🤣🤣 It reminded me of a scene from Demolition Man where there was this VR device used for having sex between two couples.

  • They should sell an add-on item for guys: a weight you put on the button so it’s always pushed.

  • The purpose of regaining romance is good. But... I don’t simply feel like using this product because it would be really awkward to push a button in a good atmosphere when we can possibly have sex later.

  • I'm always 100% about consent, as should everyone. However this seems to be taking a step from "practicality" to "ridiculous" and "unnecessary". If you have no underlying anxiety or other issues preventing you from asking consent, physical or mental, then this is pretty ridiculous. However, maybe someone

However, maybe someone can't verbally consent, but they still want to get it on. This would be great for that, as an accessibility tool.

  • If you need a button and technology to let your partner know you are interested in sex, you are doing it wrong.
