Next up: The constitutional right to prostitution

Reason TV’s video breaks down the legal arguments underlying ESPLER’s lawsuit with the help of legal expert and former California Supervising Deputy Attorney General Jerald L. Mosley. The case leans heavily on the precedent set by Lawrence v. Texas to argue that sexual privacy warrants protection under the 14th Amendment and also makes First Amendment arguments regarding freedom of association and, more specifically, “freedom to date.”

The video also features a man who goes by the name “Bacchus,” who suffers from a disability that makes having a normal sexual relationship challenging, as well as libertarian activist and sex worker Starchild.
