Prostitution in Sweden.
Paying for sex is illegal (the client commits a crime, but not the prostitute).
Sweden considers prostitution a form of violence against women so the crime consists in the customer paying for sex, not in the prostitute selling sexual services. [ 94 ] The law which makes it illegal to pay for sex, but not to be a prostitute was adopted in 1999, and at that time it was unique (since then a similar law was adopted by Norway and Iceland).
Prostitution in Switzerland.
Prostitution in Switzerland is legal and regulated. Licensed brothels, typically with a reception and leading to several studio apartments, are available. Street prostitution is illegal, except in specially designated areas in the major cities. Many prostitutes operate using newspaper advertisements, mobile phones and secondary rented apartments. It is legal to advertise for “massages” in Swiss tabloid newspapers. Swiss prostitutes pay VAT (Value added tax) on their services and some accept credit cards. The majority of prostitutes are foreigners from Latin America, Eastern Europe or the Far East. In recent years the number of prostitutes has increased. The police estimates that there may be between 1,500 and 3,000 victims of human trafficking in Switzerland. The prostitution business often becomes violent, it can involve attacks, turf wars, gunfights and arson attacks on rivals’ prostitution establishments. [ 95 ]
Prostitution in Turkey.
In Turkey, prostitution is legal and regulated. Prostitutes must register and acquire an ID card stating the dates of their health checks. Also it is mandatory for registered prostitutes to have regular health checks for sexually transmitted diseases. The police are allowed to check the authenticity of registered prostitutes to determine whether they have been examined properly and to ensure they see the health authorities if they don’t. Men cannot register under this regulation. Most sex workers, however, are unregistered, as local governments have made it policy not to issue new registrations. As a result most sex workers in Turkey are not registered sex workers, working in violation of the law. [ 96 ] [ 97 ] Turkey is listed by the UNDOC as a top destination for victims of human trafficking. [ 11 ]
Prostitution in Ukraine.
Prostitution is illegal in Ukraine, but widespread and largely ignored by the government. Sex tourism rose as the country attracted greater numbers of foreign tourists. Laws criminalizing organized prostitution and penalties for human trafficking have had little effect because many convicted traffickers often do not end up serving prison time.
Prostitution in the United Kingdom.
Prostitution ( the exchange of money or goods for sexual services) is legal in the UK for both the client and the prostitute providing the prostitute is 18 or older. However several activities surrounding it are outlawed (solicitation in a public place, kerb-crawling, “keeping or managing, or acting or assisting in the management” [ 98 ] of a brothel, pimping). [ 99 ] [ 100 ]

Window Prostitution In Amsterdam.
The most visible type of Amsterdam prostitution, the one that all the tourists go see, is window prostitution. There are 3 places with window prostitution in Amsterdam, but the bulk of the windows are in one place, namely the Wallen area in the actual Red Light District .
Girls sit behind windows dressed in fancy underwear only, smiling at the passing men to get them to step inside. If a man indicates interest, they will shortly negotiate what services are there for what price. The standard service is 15 minutes of oral sex and intercourse for 50 euros. This type of Amsterdam prostitution is typically for low-cost quickies.
The lights inside the rooms are red because women look at their best then – and because historically red lights have always been used to indicate to potential customers where the action is.
Advantages For Window Prostitutes.
Window prostitution has a few big advantages for the girls: they are their own bosses , they don’t have to pay a percentage of their earnings to a brothel owner (except a fairly high daily rent for their room) and they decide their own working hours. Even more important for them, there’s an endless stream of clients passing by so they can make a lot of money in a working day.
