Cops & Rubbers

An interactive game about sex work and policing




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 produced by the Open Society Foundations 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.

For more on the game visit Cops and Rubbers, a social impact game or watch:

(Not included in game set: a standard 52-card deck, 8 condoms, and 1 cup)
