On-street prostitution is very widespread and many sex workers on the streets are from eastern Europe and West Africa, also many small brothels exist employing only one or two prostitutes.
Brothels are illegal and pimping is a serious offense, considered by the law similar to slavery.
While commercial sex takes place in upscale brothels and designated red-light areas in many countries, some places of this world are limited to private apartments and the street.
Prostitution is rife in the night streets around mid and large towns.
Prostitution in Italy is legal though authorities are taking a firmer stance against it than before.
The issue of legalizing prostitution is highly controversial in Italy for years. It is estimated that up to 100,000 prostitutes in Italy, a third of them come from abroad. There is a good selection of escorts working in Milan.
Most of them come from Eastern Europe, but you can also find some local Italian beauties.
