The statics from findingjustice.org states that “one in ten men in the world have purchased a prostitute”. Many individuals find prostitution as a derogatory profession because prostitutes can be deemed as home wreckers, women who are sex crazed, and disease spreaders. Writer of the NY Daily News, Jason Itzler differentiates the meaning of love and sex, for he states that prostitution is not morally wrong and it would become a respectable form of work that offers good pay and safer working conditions for prostitutes if made legal.

In his book Love For Sale, Nils Johan Ringdal wrote, “If nobody wants to sell sex, it is a crime to force anyone to do so. But when men or women do want to sell their bodies, they should have that full right without encountering punishment or discrimination.” Prostitution, often described as the world’s oldest profession is a legitimate criminal offence in 109 countries of the world today (“Human Trafficking Statistics”). Laws on prostitution vary considerably from country to country: in some countries it is punishable by death penalty ("Iran - Facts on Trafficking”), in some it is a crime punishable by prison sentence, while in other jurisdictions, it is a lesser administrative offense punishable only with a fine ("The Sentencing and Punishment”). Punishments are usually more severe for the sex workers and pimps than for the solicitors of prostitution. In the United States of America, prostitution is illegal in all of its 50 states with the exception of the state of Nevada.
