The money goes to pimps. Very few of the girls make any money.
Well I know of a bunch of girls right here in town, they are not out on the streets though,
they share an apartment for their business and what they earn in no time and keep, is quite amazing.

There are many ways to go about prostitution and some girls seem to be more lucky than others and quite enjoy it all actually.

If your an expert on the subject you wouldnt recommend zero tolerance which is does not resolve the requirements of society for sex, drugs, alchohol or anything else they have tried zero tolerance approaches with. It certainly looks good on telly, but it makes the lives of people involved in such industries worse.

Re: Where can I learn about prostitution laws in Switzerland?

Yeah, what a great idea. Let's do like in Sweden! "Welcome to Sweden, Mr Assange. You should know that paying for sex is illegal here, and if you donít pay, youíll be accused of rape and molestation."

Re: Where can I learn about prostitution laws in Switzerland?

I don't agree with any prostitution. I think the girls are selling their souls. Quite frankly, the idea of it is enough to put me off my dinner. There are no morals or principles in this and i think it's crazy that it's legal. 16/18...well both ages are too young for that. The problem is, they'll be exposed to this kind of scene at a young age and won't have a chance to see anything better. Really sad. So many things to discover in life...imagine throwing it all away for a lifestyle like that. Sleeeeaaaazzzzyyyy.

http://motherjones.com/politics/2005...zero-tolerance

"
The debate between the two camps has thus far played out mostly on a national level, as states have tried to figure out the best way to tackle domestic prostitution. Sweden, for instance, opted for a largely abolition-based approach in 1999, passing a law prohibiting the purchase of sexual services. According to an assessment by the Norwegian Ministry of Justice, the number of street prostitutes in Sweden fell 41 percent between 1998 and 2003, but as a result, more than two-thirds of prostitutes are now thought to be working indoors: at home, in a brothel, in a club, or as escorts, communicating with customers via cell phone and the internet. By pushing the business underground, the danger of violence to women increases. A smaller client base means lower prices, forcing women to accept customers they would otherwise refuse, such as men who demand unprotected sex. The Swedish government claims that this law was meant for "setting norms," but the Norwegian report concludes that "the Swedish experience shows that exposing, investigating and bringing to court sex purchase offences that occur indoors are demanding on resources and difficult to prove."
The Netherlands, on the other hand, with a sex industry 10 times the size of Sweden's, acknowledges that prostitution—called "sex work"—is an inevitability, and has regulated the sex industry by legalizing brothels and creating official zones for street prostitution. The term "trafficking" is used only to designate forced prostitution, and traffickers are duly prosecuted. Dutch police reports suggest that, as a result, prostitution has become both easier to regulate and socially acceptable. Rights-based organizations like the Network for Sex Work Projects applaud the creation of a safer workplace for most women in the Dutch sex industry, though they criticize the lack of protections for many trafficking victims, including non-EU citizens who are in the Netherlands illegally."

Makes for some interesting reading.

The effectiveness of this law is not clear, and there has been little systematic research done in Sweden. It is also important to note that, even before the introduction of this law, Sweden had less prostitution than other European countries. [75] Supporters claim that the law has decreased trafficking and pimping. [76] [77] [78] Critics claim that there has been an increase in hidden prostitution, especially internet prostitution. [79][80] [81] [82] A number of reports by the Police and by the National Board of Health and Welfare [83] have not clarified this.
In contrast to the Netherlands legislation of the same time, there has been relatively little evaluation, but rather an announcement that the law has the overwhelming support of the public. An editorial in Sydsvenskan in 2007 says that “no proper evaluation of the law has yet been undertaken, and it appears unnecessary. The law has the support of 80 percent of the Swedish people.” [84] This has resulted in headlines in the foreign press, such as “Prostitution Ban Huge Success in Sweden” [85] Nearly all media articles cite this single public opinion poll, which suggests that 80% of Swedes "support the law and the principles behind its development". [86][87] In another survey, 71% of Swedes said they supported the ban on paying for sex, although only 20% of respondents believe the number of people who pay for sex has been reduced.[88] [89] A 2010 survey found that 25% of Swedish men were in favour of repealing the law, compared with 7% of women.[90]



Indeed opinion polls have shown high public support: polls conducted by the opinion and social research consultancy, SIFO, in 1999, and again two years later, showed a rise – from 76% to 81% – in the number of people who favoured this law. The percentage of respondents who wanted the law to be repealed was 15% in 1999 and 14% two years later. The rest "didn't know".


In 2008 Kajsa Wahlberg, [91] of the human trafficking unit at Sweden's national police board, conceded that accurate statistics are hard to obtain, but estimated that the number of prostitutes in Sweden dropped 40% from 2,500 in 1998 to 1,500 in 2003. [92] However by 2010 she had conceded that the policy had failed, and that issues around prostitution were increasing [93] as noted in the media which carried out surveys on the street. [94]

Read up on the current Assange case and you will quickly realize that something is very rotten in the state of Sweden.

Then you must have some clever method of filtering out the real world.

Reducing supply reduces demand? FFS, most people I know, when faced with a shortage of something, just go to greater lengths to get it.
