    Sec. 4. Scope of discovery. (a) In an action for sexual exploitation, evidence of the plaintiff's sexual history is not subject to discovery except when the plaintiff claims damage to sexual functioning; or

    (1) the defendant requests a hearing prior to conducting discovery and makes an offer of proof of the relevancy of the history; and

    (2) the court finds that the history is relevant and that the probative value of the history outweighs its prejudicial effect.

    (b) The court shall allow the discovery only of specific information or examples of the plaintiff's conduct that are determined by the court to be relevant. The court's order shall detail the information or conduct that is subject to discovery.
