Chapter Summary

Sexual contracts are of many kinds. If it were not for the mesmerising attraction/ repulsion of sex, there would be little to keep them together. If the principle of immorality should continue to exist – and it is difficult to exclude the notion from the Western lawyer's dictionary – comparative experience indicates various approaches which, it should be underlined, are not necessarily mutually exclusive, but could instead apply variably to different sets of contracts. This chapter talks about the In pari causa turpitudinis and Ex turpi causa non oritur actio rules, the prohibitionist/ feminist approach, the market approach, regulation and reform, social norms, and international trade issues.

Keywords:feminist approach; In pari causa turpitudinis rules; international trade issues; market approach; sex markets; sexual contracts; social norms
