No pay sex

It was reported in 2010 that out of eighty-six countries, only about twenty eight countries reported regular condom use in sex work ("sex workers").

In February 2014, the members of the European Parliament voted in a non-binding resolution, (adopted by 343 votes to 139; with 105 abstentions), in favor of the 'Swedish Model' of criminalizing the buying, but not the selling of sex.

In most jurisdictions which criminalize prostitution, the sex worker is the party subject to prosecution and penalty, in other jurisdictions it is the client who is the party subject to prosecution and penalty, or in others it is both transacting parties.

Prostitution has been condemned as a single form of human rights abuse, and an attack on the dignity and worth of human beings, while other schools of thought state that sex work is a legitimate occupation; whereby a person trades or exchanges sexual acts for money and/or goods.

Prostitution law varies widely from country to country, and between jurisdictions within a country.
