For better or worse, paying for sex is illegal in most places regardless of consent. The law does not have a carve out for consensual slavery either. The state can decide any consent to participate in an illegal arrangement was cohersed.

Surprisingly, it isn't in most places: criminalising it is the "Nordic model" and not widespread. It's things around prostitution that are criminalised (advertising, running a brothel, pimping etc)


That’s an interesting take, has that ever resulted in a conviction you know of?
