The California advocacy group Erotic Service Provider Legal, Educational and Research Project has filed a federal lawsuit arguing that California’s anti-prostitution law is unconstitutional.

  • limit how and with whom and individual can associate in private;
  • discourage safe sex because the possession of condoms is used as evidence by prosecutors.
