Prostitution is an act of selling and buying sex from prostitutes and other persons engaged in the sex industry. Prostitution is illegal in most countries, including the United States and Iran. In some states, the law against prostituting is called “prostitution Enforcement Act”. In these countries, the word “prostitution” does not appear in the law but “sex business” is used instead. ” prostitutes” refers to those who sell sex, not those who have it.
To be a qualified and competent brothel owner or employee, you must be at least 18 years old, own a legal business and possess a valid license. The law prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from being employed in any place where they work. There are no age limits for becoming a prostitute or being a sex worker. But there are requirements for women who want to become prostitutes. They need to undergo training and to complete mandatory courses, such as drug addiction and social control.
According to human rights advocates in the United States and abroad, many young women are forced into prostitution through force and threats. These women can be trafficked through threats of violence, abuse, rape or murder, according to officials in Nevada and across the country. Some are held captive and forced against their will in commercial sex zones, such as Las Vegas, where they are forced to perform sexual acts for money. Others are trapped in back-street brokering or forced to deliver drugs or work as a pimp or prostitute. Still others are lured to work in prostitution by promising them a better life. Many girls are made to work long hours for little or no pay.
Men who are drawn to the vice and who lack opportunities for economic success are the ones who recruit prostitutes and entice them to come to their brothels. Men who buy the services of prostitutes in the name of love or affection are not necessarily involved in sex work. In fact, the vast majority of brothels are staffed by men who are attracted to the physical appearance of the prostitutes and some are even unaware that they are buying sex from someone who has engaged in commercial sex work.
The state of Nevada is one of the few states that has never passed a law prohibiting prostitution. Yet in practice, prostitution is tolerated in some parts of the state. Prostitution is illegal in all but the smallest of counties in Nevada. In Elko, a county that borders Idaho, there is no regulation of the sale or purchase of alcohol or of prostitution. The only means of enforcement is to make arrests. Since prostitution involves the provision of a service, and since those arrested for solicitation have to face a potential sentence of up to 15 years in prison, it is easy to understand why police and prosecutors in Nevada prefer not to make an arrest unless they are sure that the person is a prostitute.
For many years, businesses in and around Reno and Elko housed numerous street-side and brothel workers. Then along came a law targeting the sex trade, namely the National Priorities Act. That law prohibits most people from advertising or running brothels, except for licensed brothels. Since brothels are required to register with the state, and since none do, the women and men who work in the brothels cannot be employed by any other business. Without a way of making a profit, these businesses have no purpose, and so the women and men who are forced into prostitution find themselves out of a job and in extreme situations, in jail.
