A prostitute and a man who would like to enjoy her services sued California on Wednesday, challenging the constitutionality of state laws against “private, consensual sexual activity … as part of a voluntary commercial exchange between adults.”
Plaintiff K.L.E.S. says she “has been licensed to provide sexual activity for hire to consenting adults in Nevada,” and would like to work in Northern California, where she lives.
Plaintiffs C.V. and J.B. both worked as prostitutes in California, and would like to again, but fear criminal prosecution.
Plaintiff John Doe, who has a disability, wants to hire a prostitute to “engage in this sexual activity consensually, respectfully, and in the privacy of his own residence.”
