Depending on the country, various prostitution related activities may be prohibited (where a specific law forbids such activity), decriminalized (where there is no specific law either forbidding or allowing and regulating the activity), or regulated (where a specific law explicitly allows and regulates the activity if certain conditions are met).
Activities which are subject to the prostitution laws include: selling and buying sexual services, soliciting in public places, running brothels, deriving financial gain from the prostitution of another, offering premises to be used for prostitution etc.
A new law, not yet in effect, will require the prostitutes to be at least 21.
Nonetheless, since July 2013, the prostitutes must already be 21 in the City of Amsterdam.
But, what if you have an arrangement where you can indulge in all the fun, passion and support of a companion yet, you only remain entitled to take care of some specific needs of a beautiful partner?
