_**How and for what reason do certain countries support escort trade? **_ ------------------------------------------------------------------------- _ ![](//d1p9tomrdxj6zt.cloudfront.net/pix/c/3/3/resize-0-0-0/500/300/c33b663848835f5ede2a61004cbc971b.jpg) _ Dealing with the escort industry falls under controlling prostitution in many countries, ignoring the conceptual differences between them. Apart from that, the issue of the support of escorts is the subject of a global debate around the world. The debate always revolves around human rights, the right to freely sell the body, as well as the organized crime. Human right activists, of course, advocate that in all countries, escorts and prostitutes should be free to pursue sex work. Amnesty International is, for example, one of the world's largest human right defending organizations with more than seven million activists who are ready to stand by escorts and prostitutes. In addition to protecting the rights of escorts, they also provide assistance to those escorts who have become victims of rape, bullying or human trafficking. In addition to human rights defenders, many countries support escorts and prostitutes on state level. In Switzerland, for example, they can work legally, and all they need to do is report their activity to the local authority and to pay tax after their activity. The situation is similar in Germany and the Netherlands as well where prostitution and the escort industry are regulated thus it offers also legal employment opportunity for lot of women. These countries (later on in the Laws chapter laws regulation prostitution in other countries will be discussed in details), while providing legal employment for sex workers, have been generating large state income by taxing prostitution. Of the liberal countries, Sweden chose to protect prostitutes by the new pack of laws regulating prostitution in 1999. The Swedes thus penalize sex clients instead of escorts and prostitutes, who are allowed to work legally. The Swedish model has proved to be working therefore in 2009 two more countries, Norway and Iceland, also joined to conciliate escorts and prostitutes with the society. In Europe in recent years, Northern Ireland (2015) and France (2016) changed their laws regulating prostitution to follow the Swedish model. In Ireland, England, Finland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Estonia, Bulgaria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, escort industry and prostitution is legal, but the organized form of the sex business (brothels, pimpery, public procurement) is strictly forbidden. Apart from the liberal Europe, with the exception of some Asian countries (Thailand, Vietnam), all forms of prostitution are prohibited and strictly sanctioned. Why is prostitution opposed by some countries? Many countries support escorts and other prostitution-related jobs by banning the purchase of sexual service. Not so long time ago, Singapore, which has become one of the most advanced Asian countries in the world today, at a World Conference on prostitution and escort industry voiced that they do not have problems with the escort trade and selling sexual services, but with the organized crime infiltrated the sex business, namely human trafficking. In their view, decriminalization does not do any good to escorts, but to criminals primarily. On the other hand, they are afraid that the making prostitution and escort service legal will lead to sex tourism similar to that of Thailand. According to some experts, Germany, by legalizing prostitution, has reached exactly the opposite of what they really wanted. According to some studies, legalization of sex work forces tens of thousands of women - mostly - to prostitution and escort service due to greedy brothels and violent pimps and other criminals. So there are two approaches, two separate opinions how to protect sex work and eskorts with their arguments, legalization, or even banning.
