Swedish Street Prostitution Climbs Again

Published torsdag 28 december 2006 kl 13.34

Swedish police report that prostitution on the streets is on the increase in Sweden and has returned to earlier levels – despite the unique law banning the sales of sexual services but not prostitution itself.

Police estimate that there are some 225 women and several males selling sex on the streets of Stockholm.

Supporters of this much-criticized law claimed that it helped reduce prostitution, while critics argued that merely drove it indoors or through digital contacts, that life had become even more dangerous for the prostitute, and that if it had been such a success, why haven’t other countries followed the example.
