BDSM and The Law

Washington

This is NOT legal advice.

The only acceptable sexual position in Washington, is the missionary position. Any other sexual position is considered illegal.

In the state of Washington there is a law against having sex with a virgin under any circumstances (including the wedding night)

If you live in Washington  and do not like these laws then ask your  Legislators to change them.

 Promoting pornography:
It is a class C felony "...for profit-making purposes and with knowledge, sells, exhibits, displays, or produces any lewd matter..."

Prostitution:
It is a misdemeanor if a "...person engages or agrees or offers to engage in sexual conduct with another person in return for a fee."

Promoting prostitution:
It is a class C felony if a person "...profits from prostitution; or advances prostitution."

Permitting prostitution:
It is a misdemeanor if a person "...fails without lawful excuse to make reasonable effort to halt or abate such use"

Patronizing a prostitute:
It is a misdemeanor if a person "...pays a fee to another person as compensation for such person or a third person having engaged in sexual conduct with him or her" and/or "...solicits or requests another person to engage in sexual conduct with him or her in return for a fee".

Patronizing a prostitute twice:
"Upon an arrest for a suspected violation of patronizing a prostitute...may impound the person's vehicle if...has previously been convicted of patronizing a prostitute..."
