Prostitution is the oldest profession in the world. Prostitution is also legal in many parts of the world or at least in most countries, the law turns a blind eye towards those who make a living by engaging in prostitution.

In the United States, prostitution is illegal in almost every state. If a person, offers to, agrees to or engages in a sexual act for compensation, then the person has broken the law. The magic words necessary for the police to charge you with prostitution is “SEX & MONEY”. In most states, the following people can be charged with the crime of prostitution. The person who provides the service of prostitution known commonly as the prostitute, the person who pays for the services of the prostitute, commonly referred to as the “john” and any middleman, commonly referred to as the “pimp”.
