Chapter Summary

Sex markets are still, in their many guises, mainly uncharted waters. Th is research has chosen a starting point – that of a market approach – which is quite novel in legal literature on sex. As oft en is the case the results are not univocal. Obviously one's own standpoint can be that of only one jurisdiction, considering irrelevant what happens in others. However the analysis that has been conducted through this research points out at numerous existing similarities, first of all the recourse to century old Latin maxims as guiding principles of law. The more freedom there is, the more will be offered on the market, and more side-markets will be created for collateral goods and services instrumental to the best use of that freedom. The paradox this research started from was that if sexual immorality rendered contracts unenforceable, then millions of transactions every day fell under this rule.
