Abstract

The article presents an alternative approach, which proposes a new legal conceptualization for the prostitution phenomenon. This approach calls for a legislative model which prohibits prostitution and places the onus of punishment and social infamy on the clients. The article applies the Israeli experience to pursue a claim that any attempt to employ the conventional legal doctrines in order to deal with prostitution is doomed to fail.

Keywords: prostitution, exploitation, gender, consent, contract, Israel
