Condoms evidence of prostitution?

Bad idea: Don't carry condoms in DC (or SF or NY), you could be charged with prostitution.

In D.C., police can declare "Prostitution Free Zones" where officers can pick up (I mean, arrest) anyone suspected of sex work. And they've been accused of using carrying three or more condoms as proof of intent to sell sex -- rather than intent to spend the weekend getting jiggy with a guy.

This is what happens when law enforcement and public health have different goals. And it's been a while since I was concerned with condoms, but three? Sounds like a regular evening to me.
