The Right to have Intimate Privacy was proposed as an initiated constitutional amendment for the November 4, 2008 ballot in Florida, but the measure ultimately did not qualify for the ballot.

The measure, if enacted, would have guaranteed that "No Act of Sexual Intimacy Committed in Private between Consenting Adults shall be Prohibited or Discriminated Against by Law." It would have repealed criminal laws from the 1800's that banned most sex acts between married couples, including oral sex acts and other sex acts and co-habitation between unmarried persons. It would have allowe legal partnerships to take place between unmarried consenting adults. It would not have repealed laws regulating sexual acts for economic compensation or laws banning same-sex marriages.[1]


The "Personal Sexual Privacy" political committee sponsored the unsuccessful measure.
