"...It’s been reported that police in D.C., the city with the highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the country, are using possession of condoms as evidence of sex work.

And they’re not the only ones; New York and San Francisco have used safe-sex devices as a means for arrest, as well..."

Did shopping in Boots just get risky?

It's not illegal to be a prostitute in the UK.

 

I have however heard of the police using the presence of condoms as evidence for prostitution in countries where it is illegal.

The question is, even here in the UK, how many is considered too many?  Like if stopped on entering a hotel on an outcall when I'll have different sizes and flavours on me

America is, it seems, a mad lunatic society with a tenuous grip on reality - just look at their dysfunctional politics and partially suspended government for evidence.

 

If you're going to adopt wacky ideas of what constitutes "evidence of criminal behaviour", the carrying of multiple condoms might just as well be seen as "going equipped" and engaging in a conspiracy to transport drugs across federal borders! After all, sometimes people put them elsewhere than on the end of their knob!

When I was a boy they came in packets of three, so for the first day (or more) I would have been in danger of arrest!

....and also in counties where prostitution isn't a criminal offence, such as England and Wales.

Thanks for the hot news. Meanwhile, in 2013, it looks like there has been a bit of progress (at least in New York) since early 2010 when the article you stumbled upon was written. See http://sexworkersproject.org/campaigns/2011/new-york-condom-bill/

 

Cheers.

Yes if Boots have branches in the US, the US attitutude to prostitution is mad to my mind. They wont do much about banning guns despite children and others being murdered by nutters, have a well known porn industry but prostitution is a no no, i am just glad i dont live their.

They have no right to search you so wouldnt know how many condoms you had. I know of no law anyway that restricts the number a person can carry. They could just say they are feeling lucky or very lucky. :D

Even if the hotel manager has the suspicion that you may be an escort he cannot search you. Even if they call the police the police can do nothing about it.

So when you buy a packet of say 12, what are you supposed to do with the other 11, throw them away, give them back to the cashier, eat them and be accused of drug trafficking? 

 

What a totally ludicrous conclusion to having three condoms on you.

 

"My boyfriend is oh so big, and keeps breaking them."

 

"I am off to my neighbourhood group sex therapy session, would you like to join me?"

 

"My boyfriend is like a stud on heat and wants sex every half hour"

 

Since when has being equipped for sex more than once, and not wishing to get pregnant, been evidence of a crime?

 

Does possessing a gun in the US, which has 6 or more bullets in the chamber/clip, make you guilty of plotting mass murder?

Does that make every man a rapist because they are always equipped!

Julie Bindel, Object and the Femi-Nutters would say the answer was Yes!

No - although I did read somewhere that many rapists apparently now use condoms because the scumbags want to minimise the amount of DNA evidence they leave behind

By this logic should GPs, family planning centres and colleges stop providing free condoms because that means they are facilitating rape and/or prostitution?

 

Sweden would agree:

http://cybersolidaires.typepad.com/files/jaylevy-impacts-of-swedish-criminalisation-on-sexworkers.pdf

 

With the purchase of sex constructed as an act of violence [in Sweden], giving condoms to the
clients of sex workers is seen to facilitate the committing of a violent crime.

 

With such limited effort to distribute condoms to sex workers, women have to provide
one  another  with  condoms,  with  additional  reports  of  shoplifting
