Update on Rhode Island prostitution

Rhode Island's legislature is now busy trying to define prostitution. Their description manages to make sex sound like not very much fun.

Thought question 1: Would the current wording rule out bride prices? How about dowries?

Thought question 2: Can one pay someone to "stimulate by hand" if the intention is only to be able get to sleep? How would the intention be determined?
