Prostitution Banned in Norway

The actual act of selling sex is legal in the UK - it's just various acts around it, such as soliciting or brothel-keeping - that are illegal. Norway, however, has now criminalized the buying of sex.

It's interesting, and perhaps worrying (I'm not sure of my own view) that it's illegal for a Norwegian citizen who say, goes to Amsterdam and hires a prostitute is breaking the law, as opposed to it only being illegal to hire a prostitute *in Norway*.

Indeed, that is probably worrying - and, interestingly, it seems that maybe a Dutch citizen could freely buy sex in Norway!
