Prostitution - Wikipedia
Prostitution is the business or practice of engaging in sexual activity in exchange for payment. It is sometimes referred to euphemistically as " the world's oldest profession " in the English-speaking world. Prostitution occurs in a variety of forms, and its legal status varies from country to country sometimes from region to region within a given country , ranging from being an enforced or unenforced crime, to unregulated, to a regulated profession. It is one branch of the sex industry , along with pornography , stripping , and erotic dancing. Brothels are establishments specifically dedicated to prostitution. In escort prostitution , the act may take place at the client's residence or hotel room referred to as out-call , or at the escort's residence or a hotel room rented for the occasion by the escort in-call. Another form is street prostitution.
