The LAWS about Escorting

Note escorting is legal and prostitution is not. If you don’t understand the difference this is what defines prostitution and how it is defined by the State.

Here is the general law in the state of Massachusetts: Section 8. Whoever solicits or receives compensation for soliciting for a prostitute shall be punished by imprisonment in a house of correction for not more than 2 and one-half years, or by a fine of not less than $1,000 and not more than $5,000 or by both such imprisonment and fine.

Courtesy of Neyman Law Office – “Engaging in sexual conduct for a fee is a crime prohibited by Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 272 Section 53A. The law defines “engaging in sexual conduct for a fee” as either: (1) engaging; (2) agreeing to engage; or (3) offering to engage in sexual conduct with another person for a fee. It does not matter whether any sexual conduct actually occurs, as long as there is an agreement or offer to engage in the sexual conduct.

This section also makes the acts of prostitutes’ payors criminal offenses. It proscribes (1) paying; (2) agree to pay; or (3) offering to pay another person to engage in sexual conduct. Again, whether any sexual conduct actually occurs is irrelevant.”

If you are convicted of engaging in sexual conduct for a fee, whether you are the payee or payor, you face imprisonment in the house of correction for up to one year or a fine of up to $500, or both.
