NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has been criticised after he proposed launching an app for couples to establish and record mutual consent before having sex.

He said during a press conference on Thursday that 15,000 women come forward last year within the state to report a sexual assault - and the number is only rising.

Mr Fuller suggested technology could be used to combat a rising tide of sexual assault and low conviction rates, noting the importance it has in most people’s every day lives. Source: Channel 9
