Prostitution is generally described as granting sexual acts in exchange for compensation. Prostitution has been an area of increasing concern for legal professionals in recent years, both as a result of the Internet and an increase in sex trafficking.
Further, prostitutes were at risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections as clients were reluctant to use condoms.
Unfortunately, the legal sex industry has become very tightly intertwined with the gray market of pornography/prostitution. Any public area can be filled with purported film crews, and prostitutes may lie about their roles as freelance adult film stars or models.
A surprisingly large amount of prostitution involves restricting those providing the service. In particular, this involves forcing underage teens who are providing the services or prohibiting them from leaving. As with all prostitution, this is still illegal in most countries.
Trafficking individuals for sexual exploitation involves tricking victims into tempting offers of employment in legitimate industries. Their real intent is to take advantage of these individuals at a financial loss by offering them work in substandard conditions or through threats or violence. These unfortunate individuals are often victims of human trafficking and, as such, are often mentally abused by the traffickers (same as the previous article). Many are also smuggled across borders, further complicating the ability of victims to leave and succeed in escaping, as they are less likely to qualify for visas, passports, or asylum. Due to discrimination, lack of citizenship, and understanding local laws and customs.
The act of sex exchanged for something of value is essentially a victimless crime. However, because it is illegal, prostitutes are exposed to various other crimes (such as rape, battery, muggings, and murder), which they cannot report to law enforcement for fear of arrest.
