Thanks for sharing NogNog. It's so sad.

It is unconstitutional. Then, who has the money to go after it for an injunction to take it up the legal chain. Male clients absolutely refused to come out of the shadows to go against this bill before signing.

I might be a name on websites and posting boards, but my public voice is active and in support for full female autonomy including consensual sex work.

Here is where the harm is immediate - thebea.st/2vjcYlf

This is scary stuff. Every day there is some new authoritarian intrusion on our freedom. We can only hope it is found to be unconstitutional. I imagine 45 will sign it once Congress passes it, despite the fact that he patronizes sex workers himself.

It's a good, balanced and informative article. I like that it mentioned that this law and previous "efforts" have only hurt adults engaging in consensual sex work and does little to fight sex trafficking. Thanks for sharing it.

I suppose it could be challenged on first amendment grounds, similar laws have been challenged that way.
I think it could be challenged on several legal theories; one is that it is retroactive. From what I remember of Constitutional Law laws can't be retroactive which means that people can't be punished for behavior they engaged in before it became unlawful.

Another being that it's overly broad. Courts have routinely struck down these types of laws. This law can punish anyone for an ad, website, forum or social media site, etc. that allows any content about sex work to appear on it even if the content was created by someone else. For example, Twitter, Facebook, web host or even CdM's creator can be held liable for content created by sex workers (in our case male companions). And of course, we and other sex workers can also be held liable for our respective ads, websites and other online content.

The courts could rule that the government has an overriding interest here - although that argument failed a decade or so ago in a case heard in Philadelphia, I think.
If this law is challenged on a right to free speech legal theory I believe the courts will apply a much stricter scrutiny test than the state's or municipality's overriding interest.

I've not heard of any legal challenges either.

There has now been a story about it on the liberal newsletter the Daily Kos. Someone there mentioned the ACLU. We can hope.

So far I don't know of any challenges to it. Among other things someone would need to have standing.

@vwilliams1

With all due respect, I do not know you and in this industry's new legal environment I want to know who I'm dealing with.

Per http://conciergedumonde.com/forum/index.php?topic=3.msg38211#msg38211 two wonderful CdM ladies have asked you to post an intro about yourself yet you have not. Of course, you are not required to respond to this simple request or any request from anyone at CdM. But I consider it to be a huge no-no and it raises several red flags in my mind about you.

Post an intro about yourself first then I would be happy to respond to your questions.

Overall question... I just got deep into the new law that passed. I'm also new to this entire world up until a few months ago. Does this mean that sites like this and also personal websites of escorts are also considered illegal?

I'm really glad you took time to post these articles. Really informative. Also, really frustrating. It's pretty wild that the day has come that craigslist took down the personals page, end of an era. Doesn't this just fall into censorship at some point?

Also, is there any real effort to undo this new law?
