Sex Scene and Prostitution
Prostitution in Norway is illegal in that paying for sex is a crime (the client commits a crime by purchasing sex. The Norwegian law prohibiting the buying of sexual services (sexkjøpsloven) came into effect on January 1, 2009, following the passing of new legislation by the Norwegian parliament (Storting) in November 2008.
It is estimated there are 3,000 sex workers in Norway today, and earn 390 million kroner. The current law banning purchase creates an administrative anomaly, since any money earnt is illegal, yet is taxable. Recent legislative proposals have included a ban on advertising. Sex workers have complained about the lack of government consultation with them.
