This is what people normally think of when pay for sex is mentioned. Other names are escorts and sex workers. They barter their body for money.
Massage parlors have exploded in number with the advent of the internet. Today the massage parlor business is a multi-billion dollar industry and is one of the leaders in the pay for sex trade.
Many people see strip clubs as harmless. In reality this pay for sex entity is a right of passage, sadly, for many, many men.
Cybersex for money through digital mediums has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. While arrests for prostitution are down across the country, prostitution via technology continues to grow.
