Understanding Prostitution Laws

Prostitution, also known as commercial sex or sex work, involves performing sexual acts in exchange for money. It’s illegal in most of the United States to offer sexual services for cash or pay for said services. Hiring a prostitute, soliciting prostitution, or acting as an intermediary or “pimp” between a prostitute and a customer are all considered prohibited sexual conduct.

Prostitution falls into one of three categories: brothel prostitution, street prostitution, and escort prostitution.

  • Brothel prostitution is illegal in most states, but some establishments operate under the guise of a massage parlor or spa.
  • Street prostitution involves soliciting sex in a public place, such as a street corner or park.
  • Escort prostitution is typically managed by escort agencies that match sex workers with clients who request services. The arranged meeting usually takes place either at the client’s residence or the escort’s residence.

Is Prostitution Illegal?

Yes, prostitution is illegal in most states, and each state has its laws regarding prostitution. Almost every county in the U.S. categorizes prostitution as unlawful. However, there are a handful of counties in rural Nevada where prostitution is legal.

Solicitation of prostitution is defined as agreeing to pay for sex. In most states, solicitation is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine and jail time, just like prostitution itself. You can still be charged with solicitation even if the sexual act never took place. This law is how undercover law enforcement makes arrests during sting operations.

Is Prostitution a Federal Crime?

While the regulation of prostitution is typically left to individual states, some sex crimes are prosecuted by federal law. The federal government will get involved in cases of human trafficking and exploiting minors for prostitution. For example, importing an alien to the U.S. for prostitution violates federal laws against prostitution. Child sex trafficking also falls under the jurisdiction of federal law.

Sentences for Prostitution

Prostitution is considered a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine and up to six months of jail time for first-time offenders. However, repeat offenses and offenses that involve the exploitation of minors or human trafficking are penalized more severely:

  • Sex trafficking of minors is punishable by ten years to life in prison.
  • Importing an alien to the U.S. for purposes of prostitution is punishable by up to 10 years and a fine.

In all other cases, the regulation of prostitution is left to individual state governments, and the punishment can vary depending on the state. For example, in Alabama, both the sex worker and customer can be sentenced to up to one year in prison and/or a $6,000 fine. In Illinois, both the sex worker and the customer can be sentenced to up to one year in prison and up to $2,500. In Nevada counties where prostitution is illegal, an offender can be sentenced to up to six months of jail time, and/or up to a $1,000 fine, and/or up to 200 hours of community service.
