Prostitution laws seek to criminalize the exchange of sex for money. Some consider these laws to be a major contributor to the high rates of victimization of sex workers who work in illegal sex trade venues. Many researchers have suggested that the legalization of prostitution, as an alternative to the current criminalization, might reduce rates of victimization among this population. The present study examines various factors, which might influence individuals' level of agreement to the legalization of prostitution. The possible implications of the results of this data on public policy are explored.
