This condom wrapper has caused outrage but it’s supposed to promote consensual sex ... can you work out the message?

THIS condom wrapper has caused outrage after its message was lost. Can you work out what it is trying to say?

A user on Reddit shared a photo of the slogan-covered contraception after being handed some by a group of safe-sex campaigners on their college campus.

The condoms are emblazoned with the words “Go further without consent” — preceded by a random doughnut cartoon.

One user wrote: “What. What is it trying to say? I know what it says, ‘Rape!’ But what did they think it said?”

Another added: “I actually read that as ‘go further without consent’ wtf.”

But it turns out the slogan isn’t as controversial as it first appears.

The doughnut actually stands for “do not,” making the true meaning “Do not go further without consent.”

According to an advert, the condoms are approved by the FDA, are “standard-sized”, lubricated, and have a shelf life of 4-5 years.

They are currently being sold in the US for $3.99 ($4.98) for one, or $0.47 (59c) each when you buy more than 10,000.

Organisations such as Planned Parenthood have offered statements on the “good message” the condom promotes and the doughnut design is currently out of stock.

Other designs include “Silence is not consent”, “consent is asking every time” and “I must ask for consent”.
