The certificate says failure to comply "may result in you being tied up and having rocks thrown at you".

After @nlfin posted the photo on Twitter, many people complained to the company about the certificate's sexist nature.

Appalling & triggering product by @BoxerGifts - says we will be stoned if we refuse sex.@EverydaySexism at its finest

Boxer Gifts has dismissed complaints on Twitter that the product is sexist or at all problematic.

@nlfin Thanks for your interest in our satirical product. It's a bit sexist of you though, assuming it refers to only one sex. Shame on you!

@nlfin, etal. It's a spoof. It doesn't suggest rape for failing to give sex, it suggests sending an ASBO. Don’t buy it if you don’t get it…

Twitter users were not satisfied with Boxer Gifts' response.

@BoxerGifts @nlfin Naah, it's completely rapey. Take a step back and consider your options.

They complained that satire is not an excuse for promoting sex as compulsory.

@BoxerGifts @nlfin disgusting - what is 'unique, original and quality' about promoting idea of sex as compulsory? PS http://t.co/8VoqcMekIU

Many argued that the product perpetuates rape culture.

.@BoxerGifts Ah, how hilarious to perpetuate rape culture with jokes such as your ASBO for not providing sex. Ugh, you should really get rid
