With very few exceptions, the activity of prostitution is illegal throughout America. Many such activities hide or cover themselves under legitimate activities such as massage parlors or escort services.
While this can lead to tremendous clouding of the issues and crimes they are fundamentally illegal if they serve as a cover for any "sex for money" form of business.

What You Need to Know About Prostitution Laws in Florida
The criminal offense of prostitution is more than paying for sex. It also covers other areas and related activities which one should be aware of.
Some of these from Chapter 796 of the Florida Statutes are:
- Procuring person under age of 18 for prostitution
- Selling or buying of minors into sex trafficking or prostitution
- Forcing, compelling, or coercing another to become a prostitute
- Sex trafficking
- Deriving support from the proceeds of prostitution
- Renting space to be used for lewdness, assignation, or prostitution
It can be not only damaging to an individual in terms of financial costs, legal penalties, and possible jail time, but it can be very socially detrimental to be accused of prostitution charges. Fighting charges of sex crimes requires legal representation with insight in this particular area of defense, as there are subtleties in the law which only highly experienced legal experience can bring.
