    Is it a crime to pay two individuals to have sex for the purpose of voyeurism if the person paying does not engage in any sexual activity with the couple?

  • Heidi

    Who is it hurting if two people want to have sex and one person happens to want to pay for it? I mean, really. Just a way for this shitty state to make money.

  • Heidi? Fleiss? Thanks for stopping by…

    people should look up the facts concerning prostitution and human trafficking before making assumptions that there are really “two consenting adults”, this is the exception, not the rule.

    Is there an ordinance for prostitution outlined in local city codes/ordinances? I found little, or no info in my city’s ordinance that can be used to arrest those who have multiple offenses against them, without the police having to see them in the act. I need to know more about arrests for prostitution. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks
