In this article I present the use of the broad concept of trafficking in the "Buying Sex Is Not a Sport" campaign, launched by the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) against German regulation of prostitution configuring prostitution as sex work. I trace the development of this 2006 campaign in which conservative and social-democratic parties, churches and anti-globalization organizations joined together at the international level. Finally, I trace the ideological and political reasons for the convergence of left-wing and right-wing forces, along with the analysis of some leftist theoretical texts on prostitution. Je presente le concept du trafic de sexe qui a été lancée par la Coalition Contre le Trafic de Femmes contre la régulation allemande de la prostitution comme travail de sexe. Je retrace le développement de cette campagne 2006 dans laquelle les partis conservateures et sociales-démocratiques, les églises et les organisations anti-globalisation se sont rejoints au niveau international. En conclusion, je retrace les raisons idéologiques et politiques de la convergence des forces de gauche et de droite, en incluant l'analyse de quelques textes théoriques de gauche sur la prostitution. En este artículo analizo el concepto amplio de tráfico en la campaña "Comprar sexo no es un deporte", lanzada por la Coalición Contra el Tráfico de Mujeres en contra de la regulación alemana de la prostitución, que equipara ésta al trabajo. Analizo la evolución de la campaña del 2006 en la que partidos conservadores y socialdemócratas, iglesias y organizaciones anti-globalización se juntaron al nivel internacional. Doy cuenta de las razones ideológicas y políticas para la convergencia de fuerzas de derecha e izquierda y analizo algunos textos teóricos de la izquierda acerca de la prostitución.
