Most of those nabbed by the law are middle managers; the masterminds run the show from abroad, over cell phone and Sweeden sex centres. Women who sell or have sold sex, like Pye Jakobsson, say the "procurement law," as the anti-pimping legislation is known, can make it difficult for sex workers to find safe places to work or even to keep centrws apartments.

Then there is the question of whether a buyer will actually use that condom. Critics, and some research, suggest that the law has increased the power that men buying sex hold over the women who sell to.

And a study by Swedish researcher Gabriella Scaramuzzino found that the law inspired buyers to organize themselves to leverage a kind of collective bargaining power.

They point to histories of abuse or drug addiction, both of which she has suffered and are fairly common among sex workers, as evidence of exploitation, of the absence of free will among the women Escort prauge survived those experiences and went on to sell sex.
