Abstract
In this article the author discusses a number of important issues related to the government regulation of sex industry. The Netherlands repealed its long-standing criminal law banning brothels and accepted prostitution as any other legitimate form of labor. For the Ministry of Justice, law reform was necessary because 'prostitution exists as a given fact, which requires a realistic approach, without moralism'. Until 2000. the somewhat uniquely Dutch response was 'pragmatic tolerance'. Although brothels are officially illegal, prosecutors and law enforcement personnel use discretion in not enforcing the criminal laws as long as public order is maintained. In Russian Federation employment by prostitution cause administrative liability, whereas criminal code criminalized involvement in prostitution, compulsion to employment by prostitution and organization of prostitution. To date, only Swedish jurisdiction has adopted a regime that explicitly criminalizes the purchase, but not the sale of sex. In other words, only the johns, not the prostitutes, are the criminals. Swedish experience has served as the inspiration for changes in the law or enforcement practices in some other countries. After the new regulations went into effect, several other countries enacted similar but not identical measures.
