Where people pay for a sex worker's 'time' rather than explicitly for sex? Don't see how that can be policed at all really, unlike stuff like street prostitution and massage parlours.
Dr Jay Levy studied the impact that criminalising the purchase of sex had on the industry in Sweden over a four-year period, between 2008-2012.
He said: "Police have to catch people in the act for a successful prosecution.
"So in practice most clients accept on-the-spot fines, rather than face being taken to court, even though it would be incredibly difficult to prove in court."
