Okay, this is inspired from a recent episode of COPS. Everyone knows the common episode where they have this big prostitution/john bust. Now, the guys always get busted when they offer money for sex, etc.
I always wondered, isn’t there a smart way to do this? Let’s say that I want to pay for sex. But I never say “I will give you twenty dollars for this or that”. What if I said “I want to have sex with you, but will not pay for it. However, I will give you a tip at the end because I want to” or “I will not pay for sex because that is illegal, but here is twenty dollars for the hell of it”. Would something like this work?
I am not asking for legal advice, as this does not concern me. But everyone knows that it is illegal (in 99% of the country) to pay for sex or offer sex for money. So, what would be the way around it? Could someone offer the defense that they did not pay for sex, but gave the girl money because he felt like it?
