A Right to Intimacy did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment. If enacted this measure would have mandated that no sexually intimate act between consenting adults will be prohibited or discriminated against. Also, this measure allowed legal partnerships to take place between unmarried consenting adults. It could have appeared on the ballot as either the Right of Intimate Privacy or the Right to have Intimate Privacy. Both measures were introduced by Personal Sexual Privacy Initiative, with the first on January 16, 1998, and the second on October 17, 2005.
