    A Gift Company Is Selling A Certificate For Failing To Give Sex On Demand

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

    A Yorkshire based gift company, Boxer Gifts, is selling a fake anti-social behaviour certificate (ASBO) for "failing to give sex on demand".

    The certificate says: "Failure to comply will bring serious consequences and 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.

    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
