What would you be doing for them?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will be taking calls from clients,arranging appointments and also taking cash. I will be making money from them but hoped it was legal as it would only be from one lady each day.

It doesn't amount to running a brothel but it does seem to me to amount to control of a prostitute for personal gain I'm afraid.It is fair to say that there aren't many prosecutions for this offence but if you are asking about the theory of your position then you would be vulnerable.Sorry if that is bad news.Can I clarify anything for you?Jo
