However, when the subject is sexuality, the constitutional protection to look at what you want to look at and listen to what you want to listen to is compromised. Communities are allowed to invoke the doctrine of secondary effects and say, ‘I don't want a strip club in my city because people go to strip clubs and then they go and rape people,’ or ‘people go to strip clubs and then they go to prostitutes,’ or ‘people go to strip clubs, and then they molest their children,’ and they can claim that that is a ‘well-known secondary effect’ without having to prove it.
