Are escort companies legal in the US? Surprisingly, not entirely! The progressive attitude of the American people is just a Hollywood thing, unfortunately. Nevada is the only state that has legalized prostitution. Even though it has a long history of brothels under its belt, Nevada’s first legal brothel came in 1971. And in spite of that, there are some limitations people have to respect. For one, not all of Nevada allows prostitution; there are only ten counties that have a more casual approach to it. But even within those counties, it’s only possible to engage in solicitation and prostitution within licensed brothels. Are escorts illegal in other parts of the US? It appears so, and there hasn’t been much movement in making it legal in the future. In fact, you could say that some parts have reverted back to their conservative ways and destroyed the lives of many sex workers.
Rhode Island used to offer protection to sex workers, and for a few years, indoor prostitution was blooming there. The workers had protection against unstable clients, and they could call the police if they were in harm’s way. Unfortunately, that all changed in 2009 when indoor prostitution was criminalized. Now, those who are either self-employed or working as escorts because they simply want to need to be extra careful who they solicit, where, and how. They don’t have the police’s protection anymore. Finally, we do have to mention FOSTA too, or the Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017. By signing this act into law, President Trump declared war on human trafficking and websites that advertise sex work. However, though the act may help catch human traffickers, it also prevents free-willed sex workers form earning their income. Because of that, it doesn’t really matter how escort websites make money anymore, as they are being prosecuted regardless of who the escorts are. That has done more harm than good for the sex industry. In order not to miss a rent payment or have enough money to live off, those sex workers have probably had to find alternative jobs or, even worse, use the services of a potentially unsafe or abusive pimp or agency.Visit our Website and Social Media.
