Sex workers across the world must often make a dangerous choice between protecting their health and avoiding police harassment or arrest.
In many countries, police treat condoms as contraband, confiscating or destroying condoms they find on sex workers during both legal and illegal searches. Prosecutors may use confiscated condoms as criminal evidence of prostitution.
Cops & Rubbers is an interactive board game for health and human rights advocates, health practitioners, academics, and policymakers that demonstrates the real consequences of these policing tactics for sex workers—including increased vulnerability to HIV infection.
The Cops & Rubbers guide and game set are available here for download, or the fully produced game may be ordered for purchase via The Game Crafter.
