In 2004, 12.6% of men reported being clients at least once and 0.6% of women. In 2006, 3.1% of men were clients of prostitution within five years. In 1992, they were 3.2%, indicating that their number did not change over this period. In 1873, Anthony Comstock founded the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, an institution charged with overseeing public morality. Comstock successfully lobbied Congress to pass the Comstock Act, which prohibited the provision or distribution of “obscene, lustful, or lascivious” material and made family planning information illegal. Two years later, Congress passed the Page Act of 1875, which prohibited women from engaging in prostitution in the country.  Prostitution in Belgium has been the norm since the abolitionist law©abolishing the regulation of©prostitution. © On the other hand, the exploitation of prostitution, forced prostitution and prostitution of minors or persons in an irregular©situation are prohibited. The trafficking of white women and children began to raise concerns in the early twentieth century. Various women`s groups, social purists, and religious organizations lobbied the federal government to pass anti-prostitution laws and criminalize the international trafficking of young women (McLaren, 1986, p. 147). The government responded by amending the Entitlement and Subsistence of Prostitution Act (Shaver, 1994, p. 128). In 1892, the federal government passed a series of amendments to the Penal Code to protect young women and children from “sexual predators” who induced them to engage in prostitution (McLaren, 1986, pp.
135-136). In addition, moral reformers are outraged by the sexual exploitation of women and children. To combat sex trafficking, some Christian women`s groups also threatened to publish the names of men who bought sex (Backhouse, 1991, 237). Although the objective is to protect young women and children engaged in prostitution, laws providing for criminal sanctions against them have continued to be enforced (McLaren, 1986, p. 139). Reformers wanted exploitative men to be punished, but when it came time to enforce the law, prostitutes were arrested (O`Connell, 1988, pp. 116-117; Shaver, 1994, p. 162). However, prostitution is legal in some Nevada counties, where it is regulated by Nevada`s revised statutes.
Brothels are located in eight counties. Street prostitution and pimping are illegal, as in the rest of the country. According to published literature, attempts to combat and suppress prostitution have led to two major phenomena since the 1970s. First, since the enactment of the Solicitation Act in 1972, there has been growing concern about the visibility of street prostitution and associated harassment (Lowman, 1986). Meanwhile, prostitutes working on the streets were harassed by local residents and police who wanted to eliminate prostitution from certain areas of the city. Second, since 1980, sexual abuse and exploitation of children have become increasingly recognized (Hornick & Bolitho, 1992, p. xiv; Sullivan, 1986, p. 177). In response to concerns about sexual violence against youth, the federal government established the Committee on Sexual Offences Against Children and Youth (Badgley Committee, 1984). Given the limited information available on child prostitution in Canada, the Committee was subsequently mandated to conduct inquiries into sex trafficking among youth (Badgley Committee, 1984; Hornick and Bolitho, 1992; Lowman et al., 1986). Procuring is defined as the exploitation of the prostitution of others by third parties. This behaviour is punishable under articles 225-5 et seq.
of the Criminal Code. In fact, the penal code already punishes pimping and living off the benefits of prostitution. Our society continues to fight this scourge. Police services must continue to fight organised crime in accordance with our fundamental rights. It is the guarantee of a civilized, free and democratic society. In addition, as citizens of Quebec, we should encourage our governments to subsidize collectives that help street women. If we can help them with a donation from our own pocket, so much the better. Thank you for your comment! After the 1913 amendments, the number of charges laid against pimps, pimps and people living off prostitution increased (Larsen, 1992, p. 140); McLaren, 1986, p. 151).
However, it was mainly prostitutes who were arrested. It was unlikely that men who bought sexual services would have been prosecuted (Larsen, 1992, p. 139): prostitution has increased since the 1990s, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. In 2011, according to the parliamentary information report on prostitution in France, 91% of women prostituted on the street were foreigners, 74% of whom were victims of international mafia networks, two-thirds of them came from Eastern European countries. Future prostitutes will have to pay “a temporary debt” of up to 50,000 euros. Some are minors and sometimes twelve years old. Once there, a prostitute undergoes “training”: gang rape, starvation, imprisonment and physical violence, extortion and threats against the family, extortion. The conclusion of the report on the networks of Eastern European countries is that the debt “is not made to repay, but to keep prostitutes in the prostitution system for as long as possible. The only way to redeem one`s freedom is often the passage to pimping and therefore participation in the maintenance of the system” .
The France has been an abolitionist country since 1960. By ratifying the 1949 Convention on Action against the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others in 1960, the France committed itself to recognizing at the international level that public procurement is “incompatible with the dignity and worth of the human person”. Any form of procuring is illegal and punishable.  The Convention obliges signatory states to take “appropriate measures to prevent prostitution and to ensure the rehabilitation and rehabilitation of victims of prostitution.” It also provides for the abolition of any form of registration of prostitutes in the registers or exceptional surveillance. During the twentieth century, various interest groups in Canada have been at the forefront of combating prostitution, enacting prostitution laws and implementing policies. There are examples of opponents who opposed prostitution on moral grounds because it encouraged sex outside marriage (Lowman, 1992, pp. 70-71; McLaren, 1986). At times, epidemiological concerns have led legislators to legislate sexually transmitted diseases (Backhouse, 1985, p. 390; Lowman, 1992, p. 19. 71; McLaren, 1986). At other times, feminist groups rejected prostitution because it exploited women.
From the mid-1970s to the early 1990s, the visibility of prostitution and the disadvantages associated with it were at the forefront of debates (Brock, 1998; Lowman, 1992, p. 71). Child prostitution is a serious problem in the United States.   According to reports, more than 100,000 children are forced into prostitution in the country each year.   Street prostitution is illegal throughout the United States. This practice tends to be limited in certain neighborhoods known for advertising.
