Prostitution, or sexual services in exchange for money, is often referred to as the oldest profession in the world. In fact, there are historical references to prostitution that date back more than 4,500 years. Today, many countries have legalized adult prostitution to some degree, including the United State (parts of Nevada). But, for now, prostitution is still a crime in California. There are over eleven thousand (11,000) misdemeanor prostitution arrests or citation every year in California. This number includes only prostitution charged under PC 647(b), 653.22(a), and 315, it does not include any of the numerous prostitution related crimes such as pimping, pandering and human trafficking. 

Prostitution Defined:

According to California penal code 647(b), prostitution is defined as an agreement, or a solicitation, to commit a lewd act for money or other consideration.

Per PC 647(b), a lewd act is the touching of the sexual parts of either the prostitute or the customer, including the female breasts. 

Per PC 647(b) other consideration is anything of value, including drugs, personal property such as computers or cell phones, a promise to perform in the future, stolen property, etc.

Basically, prostitution is 'an agreement, or a solicitation, to perform sexual services for compensation.'

There are many laws in California that cover the various crimes of prostitution. For example, the crime of prostituting wife is a specific prostitution criminal charge with its own corresponding penal code section and penalties (PC 266g).

Other common prostitution related crimes include Pimping, Attempted Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Pandering, Loiter with intent to commit Prostitution, keeping a house of prostitution, and so on....
