It is legal on Atradia, however stereotypical ”red-light district” street prostitution is illegal. Various brothels are ubiquitous across the UNA, but all are highly regulated to conform with strict health and safety guidelines. In fact, being one is one of the highest paying jobs in the UNA

Yes, but it must be done out of brothels since street solicitation is illegal.

It is allowed, but only if the person is single. All brothels must be closed by 2 a.m. to avoid disturbing other people’s sleep.

Fully legal, but brothels must conform to stringent health and safety regulations and both clients and prostitutes must be 18 years of age or older. Additionally, all business must take place inside a fully licensed brothel that has received a B+ or higher grade from the Ministry of Safety & Public Health at the last two official inspections, and brothels are also subject to random investigations by undercover MS&PH employees. Prostitutes are required to be checked once a month for STDs, and are required by law to register with MS&PH. Streetwalking and prostitution outside of fully licensed brothels is highly illegal.

No; prostitution is not legal. It is, however, a crime wherein the client is convicted rather than the prostitute herself. The statutory crime of acquiring nakedness through unlawful means has been held in the courts to mean paying a person in order to carnally know either him or another person. A separate crime, keeping a brothel, applies to the person running a brothel house, whilst the crime of procuring applies to those facilitating prostitution in other situations. The crime of living off the avails of prostitution is a canon law crime.

Of course. Pretty much any business that does not jeopardize national security or the government is legal.

Plus, it's fun to charge biologicals for being slaves to their own code. Biologicals think they're self-directed, but in reality, they run on programming that they call "instincts" - sometimes entirely. This code is full of 'sploits: It's easy to get their money or cooperation by satisfying any of the drives it produces.

We typically export drugs, but on Cybertron, newly-roboticized immigrants are patched to eliminate that sort of addiction as part of the process. The sex drive, however, remains until an optional patch is installed. This gives us the perfect opportunity to charge these saps 50,000 Cubes per hour for our services.

That said, there are so few immigrants here who have not yet installed the Desexualization Patch that the prostitution industry is very small. We make a lot more money exporting porn, though. Ours looks completely legit, but is actually made by expert CGI artists. Like all of our exports, we focus on whatever kind is illegal in a foreign nation, because the big money is always in smuggling banned things. Places like TurtleShroom II are gold mines because they ban it all! Who needs to do any actual prostitution when all you have to do to make money from the sex industry is fly somewhere under heavy cloaking carrying a bunch of thumb drives and DVDs?

No. In Kesarsey any "common prostitute" (by which is usually meant a woman living as a sex worker) may not solicit in a public place. Equally any person (client) who exchanges money with or promises to exchange money with a common prostitute soliciting in a public place is also committing an offence. Both offences are classed as misdemeanours. The punishment for soliciting in a public place is a term of imprisonment for one month with or without hard labour, a fine, to be pilloried for up to two hours, or no more than two of these punishments. The punishment for exchanging money with or promising to exchange money with a common prostitute is usually a fine, or to be publicly whipped "until the back is striped and bloody" or both.

Controlling prostitution for gain (pimping), or managing a brothel is a felony-level crime punishable with penal servitude for a term not exceeding ten years.

The exchange of money for sex in private is technically outside of the law's jurisdiction, but the nature of the law would make such a situation very difficult, since public soliciting and kerb crawling is suppressed, and published directories of prostitutes (whilst illegally available) are also suppressed by the Obscene Publications Acts 1846 and 1961.

Commonwealth of Kyria
Legality of Prostitution

Prostitution is a legal, regulated and taxed industry within the Commonwealth. As of 10th February 2019, street prostitution and unlicensed brothels are illegal. Brothels and sex workers must obtain licenses to operate in the prostitution industry. An individual license mandates the individual in question visit a qualified doctor on a semi-regular basis at the least, set standard prices and list of services, submit financial earnings & monthly/annual average income and adhere to age laws¹. Brothels must register as businesses in the prostitution industry and undergo regular health & safety inspections by qualified individuals. These brothels must also adhere to age and other relevant laws.

¹ A person below the age of 25 cannot engage in sexual activities with another person above the age of 25. One must be 20 years of age in order to register as a sex worker - independent or within a brothel.

Prostitutes are caupanes (skilled workers, literally traders). To practice their service under the protection of the Wildan they must pay an annual license fee of 10,000 gilder and remain current with all taxes regarding services, profits, and land as necessary to operate a brothel; or be employed in one and pay their personal taxes.

Selling the sex of slaves is scorned but not illegal. Trafficking free men or women is prohibited under pain of death.

Prostitution is illegal, although most sex workers themselves are not punished for offering their 'services' to clients, the law predominantly focuses on punishing 'pimps' or the owners of brothels who offer their sex workers and their 'services' to their clientele.

Both pimping and operating a brothel are considered to be felonies which are punishable by an up-to Ð50,000 fine and up-to 20 years imprisonment.

As stated above, most sex workers themselves are not punished, but legally both the selling and purchasing of sexual services are classified as misdemeanors punishable by a minimum fine of Ð500.

Prostitution is legal, but following these rules:
  • Any sexual activity is paid for and performed in a private place like a private house, hotel, etc.
  • It is not performed in a strip/gentleman's club
  • No sexual activity or payment exchange is to take place in a location described as a brothel.
  • The sex worker and client are over the age of 18.
  • Prostitution becomes prohibited in areas issued with a Anti-Social or other community protection order.

Failing to follow these rules leads to a fine, repeat offenders can be arrested.

Legal and frankly omnipresent. From school girls (and boys) giving blowjobs to make some extra lunch money to the fact any hotel 3 star and above either has their own sex workers or contracts with a nearby brothel in Purpelia prostitution is just a fact of life. Purpelia is basically a Japanese Porn Comic book in that regard. Only with less tentacles.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

═───╡❖╞────────═ LEGALITY OF PROSTITUTION IN THE SFLE ═────────╡❖╞───═




Ephyral law permits prostitution as a valid trade. It is defined as the "sale of sexual affection in exchange for direct financial payment or long-term financial aid." Prostitutes in Ephyra are typically divided into two main categories, translated commonly to 'whores' and 'companions'. The former are the most common, usually female, and are a mixture of freeborn, freed (former slaves), and slave status. Both freeborn and freed prostitutes must register with local authorities as a prostitute, a process which permanently places the name of the individual on a register, to legally practice the sex trade. Once registration is complete, this is about as far as any extensive regulation goes. Registration requires the correct full name of the prostitute to be given, along with their place of birth, their age, and intended practising name.

The law stipulates that no female may be prostituted whether she be freeborn, freed, or a slave, if she is not at least of the age of menarche. The age for males is legally given as fourteen (14). Once registration of a freeborn or freed individual as a prostitute is complete, they are licensed to practice their sex trade, and may seek employment at brothels or will autonomously prostitute themselves. Slaves however, as full property of their owners be they individual or corporate, require no such registration and may be sold sexually so long as this is in compliance with other trade laws and age laws. Freeborn or freed prostitutes who are unregistered with the authorities when they begin practising will, if caught, be legally stripped of their present standing and sold into slavery. Any brothels utilising unregistered prostitutes will also be fined, encouraging compliance with these laws.

Any free prostitute is forever marked as such by permanent entry on the list, and also subject to both this legal and social concept of disrepute, often resulting in minimal protections for such workers. These protections are even lower for those prostitutes who are also slaves.

Prostitutes who work brothels are seen as superior in quality to those who do not, and are trusted to be more regularly checked for infections or diseases. Brothels however can themselves vary massively in quality, quantity, and price, with brothels catering specifically the upper-wealthier classes, offering 'trained' prostitutes of more exotic beauty and behaviour, whilst others may focus on quantity over quality, and opening themselves to a wider and more affordable market.

'Companion' is a term given to those prostitutes who through means of class or ability are able to avoid the more public and open service of lower prostitutes, and take part in what some consider 'relationships' with clients of particular standing in wealth and power. This manifests less a direct trade of money for sex, but rather as long-term financial upkeep for companionship which includes sexual services but is not exclusively limited to such. The Ephyral version of courtesans in effect, such prostitutes are often above the social disrepute earned by regular prostitutes, and their company may be sought after as desirable. The window of desirability for such companions however is often short, and such women will inevitably end up as the same type of prostitute they are considered superior to if they fail to acquire enough financial security during their window of opportunity. Companions are most often the daughters of more well off families, disgraced for one reason or another, and whose higher class education and upbringing brings the facade of sophistication to what is little more than a long-term rental of affection.

So long as the frequenting of a brothel belies no sexual weakness of indulgence and a lack of self-discipline in a man, there are no social repercussions for a man using the services of a prostitute no matter his status. Some however shun the practice as base and an excess even when exercised moderately, whilst others still succumb to that same indulgence, taking what little comfort is available in the embrace of whores that their self-imposed misfortune has denied from a wife.
