Technically speaking, prostitution is engaging in sexual acts in exchange for money.

In actuality, prostitution is a form of violence against women and girls. While there are small number of prostituted men and boys, they are vastly outnumbered by prostituted women and girls. Those who purchase sex are almost always men. Prostitution is physical, sexual and emotional abuse inflicted on women by men.
