Escorting in the UK – the legalities

Despite what some people may think, it is not illegal to be an escort. Having sex for money has never been illegal in England and Wales.

However, many associated activities are: soliciting on the street or other public place; owning, running or allowing a brothel (anywhere two or more people are offering sex, even if not at the same time, and even if not for money); controlling other people's prostitution for gain ('pimping', running an agency etc).

We'll have more details soon.
