Sweden has now introduced the first law of its kind worldwide. The purchase and brokering of sexual services have been criminalized, although the selling of sexual services remains legal.

While some administrations prohibit sex work on grounds of cultural or religious opposition, others do so in an attempt to protect public health, limit disease transmission and deter the exploitation of women and other marginalized populations. Some countries, such as Sweden, penalize consumers of sex in efforts to empower women and promote gender equality. Proponents of decriminalization, however, argue that regulation, as opposed to prohibition, helps to promote the visibility of this traditionally clandestine practice and allows for more effective public health interventions. Legal approaches to sex work fall into one of three categories: full prohibition, partial decriminalization and legalization.
