The removal of condoms during sex without consent, also known as “stealthing”, may be illegal in the state of California. A bill introduced this week by California Assembly Member Cristina Garcia (D) would classify condom removal as illegal (sexual battery) and would allow the victim to suffer harm under the state’s Civil Code Will allow to claim.
If this bill is passed, experts say that it will be the first such law to explicitly address the removal of condoms illegally in any state. I want to make sure that A, victims have a legal curriculum for justice and B, we have everything in the books, which facilitates discussion with all people, especially our youth, whether mother – Father, be it teacher, whether it is public safety system, Garcia told The Washington Post.

Garcia said in a statement, “I have been working on the issue of” stealing “since 2017. I will not stop until there is some accountability for those who abolish the act.” It is disgusting that the online community Those who defend and encourage theft and give advice about removing condoms without the consent of their partner, but there is nothing in the law to make it clear that it is a crime. May be between those who already agree to sexual contact or are in a relationship. ALSO READ: Here sex without condom can be punished !!!
According to civil rights lawyer Alexandra Brodsky, many have experienced the act as a “serious violation of their dignity”. In an article written for the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law in 2017, Bradsky stated that victims may have to suffer pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections and emotional trauma.
