Is There Prostitution In Sweden?

Sweden is among the few nations in the world in which it is illegal for men to solicit sex that entail paying for it. jenny Sonesson, of the Liberal Party, notes that “if you don’t have customers who want to buy human beings’ bodies you won’t have the supply.” But, a walk through Stockholm’s Malmskillnadsgatan main red llight district reveals sex shops and strip clubs and asome middle age women hanging around the street. Until 1999 it was legal to both purchase or sell sex, but that is over including making illegal brothels. However, authorities believe there are about 200 active prostitutes in the district now, a drop from over 300 in previous times. Th assumption is that many prostitutes have simply migrated to the comfort and security of the Internet to play their wares.

Isabella Lund, a spoleswoman for the Sex-workers and Allies Network (SANS) believes the law compels women to operate in secret and they may be more detrimental than allowing men to purchase sex. The growing secrecy most probably damages efforts to get sex workers using protective devices to avoid getting infected.
