YEAR: 2018

In the not too distant future sexual consent is still presenting problems for humans. Andrea and Caleb use an app that records each others consent, but there’s something not quite right about Karen, Caleb’s AI home computer. Andrea asks for her to be put into sleep mode before they get intermit, but when things are well under way Andrea notices Karen still standing in the corner of the bedroom, filming them. Movie-staring her. Caleb’s making secrete pornos. Andrea storms out, but not before enlisting Karen’s help to turn the tables on Caleb.
