    These are fucking retarded. If saying no doesn’t work then there is no way in hell anyone is going to stop because your panties say no. The only time anyone will read them is if they are found while doing laundry. If you want to “talk” about sex then the last thing you need to do in this fictitious “rape” culture is drop your pants and start showing your dumb ass bought stupid panties with a pointless message.
