Criminalizing Condoms in the Nation's Capitol

Watch out, ladies! Carrying three condoms in D.C. makes you a prostitute:

Police in D.C. are setting up “Prostitution Free Zones,” in which officers can arrest anyone they suspect of being a sex worker. And the police have been accused of using the number of condoms a person has in their possession as an indication of their intent to sell sex. While this law can be a nuisance to people who aren’t in the sex trade (condoms are often sold in packs of three), it really is dangerous to sex workers because it forces them to abandon safe sex practices, which puts their health and that of the public at risk. D.C.

It's not known whether this rule applies to men...

  1. WOW! What a dumb system. The article rightly points out that the policy "is dangerous to sex workers because it forces them to abandon safe sex practices, which puts their health and that of the public at risk."
