Easy to understand version:
is legal in Canada. How do they intercept, well they have laws surrounding
it. Here are a few pointers and laws that I have learnt over the years:
1. Soliciting for
the purposes of prostitution in a public place is illegal.
Otherwise, you can prostitute, but you can not talk about it! For example;
- A place
is considered public when it is accessible to the public. Otherwise, a place
of business such as a massage studio or the lobby of a hotel. In a private
place, which would be your home or inside a room within the hotel, soliciting
is not illegal. I personally get a kick out of how massage attendants feel
that once the man in question takes off his clothes and lays on the massage
table, it is safe for her to solicit him. Nope. The room that she is in
is located within a public place, the massage parlor.
misconception on the part of a SP is that many would ask the man
to touch their breasts or to allow the SP to touch his crotch in order to
prove he is not a police officer. Funny. My girlfriend attempted this and
the police officer put his hand down her top and had a good 'ol time! Well,
he also took her to court, charged her for sexual assault and won!
- There is no such thing as entrapment in Canada. Otherwise, years ago we
used to ask the guys; 'Are you in any way, shape or form, affiliated with
the Vancouver Police Department or any Law Force? We thought that they would
have to answer correctly. Nope. In the US yes, but not in Canada. The main
problem is that most are naive. Most of what we learn about the laws is
US even though we don't realize it unfortunately.
- The police will get
a warrant to tap your telephone if they are suspicious. They may not monitor
it consistently, but have no doubt, it is all recorded. Eleven years ago,
when the only cellular telephone that a person could get was the kind that
had to be mounted in your car, the police tapped my telephone. Cellular
phones were thought to be difficult to tap because of the channel changing.
Boy, were we wrong. Over 5000 pages of telephone conversations! So do not
doubt for one minute that they will not tap your cell phone.
- WATCH for the details in the warrant! If there is one letter or number
out of place on the warrant for the telephone tap, the transcripts are thrown
out of court. This is the mistake that they made in my case. They put my
boyfriends name on the telephone warrant, but the telephone was in my name.
They were thrown out of court.
3. Living off of
the avails of prostitution;
- Example. I have a roommate
who is living with me. She has no idea what I do in the house when she is
gone. I am taking clients behind her back. I am the one who is paying the
bills in the house or even the better part of them. I get arrested for any
charge concerning prostitution. She will then be charged of living off of
the avails of prostitution. The money that I make pays the bills that she
doesn't. Now, being my roommate, she obviously has a key to the house. In
turn, the police can then charge her for 'keeping a common bawdy house'
on top of it. Let's say for a moment that she knew what I was doing, however
disagreed with it. She would be charged with the above charges still. Say
that we had a telephone conversation while it was tapped. My roommate was
in some way encouraging me to try to make good money over the week so that
we can buy a new couch. They can then charge her for procuring.
it will be the pimp that is charged with this. The person who is insisting
that the SP continue working or bring the SP into the business for their
personal gain. Otherwise, if a massage studio owner willingly allows the
girls to participate in providing full service and the police can prove
that he/she is well aware of this taking place, simply by asking the girl
to show up to work is procuring
5. Bawdy Houses;
that there is consistent activity of prostitution is a bawdy house whether
it be a motel, hotel, house, apartment, massage parlor or a strip club.
Anyone who is the owner or the manager of the property may be charged for
running a common bawdy house. Anyone who has within their possession a key
to that particular place is charged with being a keeper of a common bawdy
Take precautions SP's;
is how you will get busted if you are an incall SP
- A client that you have not seen will visit
you. He will come in like any other client, pay you money, lay down with
you and do the dirty, and leave. Within a matter of seconds, there is a
banging at the door and the police come in. The first thing that they will
go for is the money that the undercover cop has paid you. Within that money
will be a marked bill. This proves that the undercover paid you; regardless
if you asked for your fee or not.
- They will then begin to take photographs of everything that you have within
your place. If you have no other source of income, they will assume that
you acquired everything by the means of prostitution and they have legal
right to remove it all from your property until you go to court and you
are either convicted or not. With me, they only took all moneys and jewelry.
- They will collect any diaries, journals, phone books or papers that you
- They will search your garbage's for condoms.
- They will ask you questions. You do not have to answer anything if you
don't want to, however, even if they seem pleasant and understanding to
your situation, anything you say they will hold against you.
- If all the police officers on your premises are men, they will ask you
if they can search your purse. You can say no, but, once you are at the
police station they will search it anyway. It is no longer mandatory that
it be a female police officer searching your purse.
- They will put you in hand cuffs and take you to the police station where
you will be finger printed, searched, and a mug shot will be taken on you.
You will then be kept on file as a known prostitute regardless if you are
charged or not.
- Then a court date is set and either you fight it, or you make a deal.
Typically, if you plead guilty, they will drop a couple of the charges and
give you a fine of around $500.00. The bad thing, you now have a record.
Even though soliciting is considered a misdemeanor, you can not enter the
US if you have been charged with this. They consider it a moral crime and
a criminal charge.
How do you avoid getting caught? Don't see
any clients you have never seen before. Simple. Don't solicit on the telephone.
You can give your rates, but when asked silly questions like, 'what are
you going to do for that', tell them that they are paying for your time.
Guys, please don't ask girls what you will
get for your money. They can not go into detail over the telephone. It is
pretty obvious what will be taking place. Even though it is not a lot better,
try to get your details via email.
