Here's how the condom packaging works

The package of the contraceptive, developed by Argentinian sex toy brand Tulipán, requires to be pressed on all four corners at the same time. This implies that both partners must be aware of their actions beforehand, thus ensuring mutual sexual consent, and equal decision-making.
