Escorts are often falsely accused of and sometimes arrested for prostitution in Warwick. It is presumed that an escort giving sexual favours is offering sexual favours, even when the escort in fact is just giving non-sexual companionship to a person or event and not sexually stimulating activities. But what is sex? And if one is being arrested for prostitution or for any other crime, does that mean sex is a legal thing? Is it okay to be having sex with all the members of the law enforcement even though they are not police officers?
I believe the problem is not really about prostitution, but rather, it is the idea that one can provide sexual services and be considered free and legal, but that sex trafficking and having sex against the will are not. Perhaps this makes the problem worse by adding citations to unreliable sources. I am also troubled by the overuse of the word” prostitute” and the use of the word “escort” to describe the same act.
In my opinion, the root causes of the increased rate of crime and prostitution are lack of education, lack of job opportunities, lack of job security and social degradation. It has been found, for example, that young adolescent boys will become prostitutes as soon as they reach puberty. Likewise, the mentally and physically handicapped will become victims of sex trafficking.
As we know, most of the prostitution crimes are committed by organized crime syndicates and trans-national criminal networks. Escorts often join them and are the prime victims of human trafficking. Some of the most common reasons for prostitution are poverty, unemployment, lack of job opportunities, xenophobia, cultural or religious intolerance and social alienation. According to police statistics, Escorts often become pimps or sex slaves in most of the cases. They can be minors or grown up men. In some cases, the pimps will go on to become full-grown adults and work in escort agencies to support themselves.
When we talk about pimps and sex slaves, we are referring to the commercial sex trade, but these two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. In a pure form of prostitution, the prostitutes are the women who put in the money for the men to have sexual activity with the women. But the definition of a sex worker differs from a prostitute. A sex worker is a female who is engaged in the exchange of sex for monetary payment, goods or benefits. In other words, she is a worker not an employee.
The prostitution charges against the escorts are based on the proof that the accused made profits from their services. The proof that the accused gained profit through the prostitution of others is considered strong evidence. The prostitution charges also include the proof that the accused abused their position of authority to get the money and benefits. For instance, if an Escort’s wife goes to a client and brings the money home with her. Then she hides the rest of the money in her own savings. That will form the basis of the proof against her.
In order to avoid prostitution charges, most pimps and sex workers will run away from the client. If an Escort’s wife goes to a client and brings back the money, then she will be charged with money laundering. Escorts have to keep a careful eye on the welfare of their female clients. There have been many instances where Escorts have been arrested and charged because they helped their clients to launder money. Many times the prostitutes take drugs or other substances to ensure that they are not caught as they sleep.
It is very difficult for pimps and escorts to run away from their jobs. The pimps run to their jobs as soon as the client pays them for sex. And the escorts don’t even want to think about facing prostitution charges. They know that the longer they go to jail or prison, the more money the Prostitution pimps and escorts make.
