Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
"Escorting" is not prostitution.
That would be perfectly legal because escorting is not prostitution.
If they were to advertise prostitution then there is an offence that covers that but not specifically with references to newspapers. Mostly it has been telephone boxes.
unless the agency engaged in exploitative conduct, within the meaning of the criminal justice and public order act, they wouldn't be committing an offence though per se.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Not unless the agency 1 Knew that sex was being negotiated and 2 Engaged in exploitative conduct.
Customer hasn't committed an offence.
It would be different if the escort had been forced into it but the customer not knowing would be a defence.
Anything can include sexual services. Escorting is not per se.
I don't know anything about that site but probably they are based abroad or doing nothing unlawful.
Not normally unless the advertisements are lewd and euphemism usually avoid that.
Obviously it would need to be proven it was a euphemism.
