Cathy Young, Contributing Editor at Reason magazine and Reason.com, stated in her May 7, 2007 Reason.com article titled "Prostitutes and Politics":

“[P]rostitution is perhaps the ultimate victimless crime: a consensual transaction in which both parties are supposedly committing a crime, and the person most likely to be charged—the one selling sex—is also the one most likely to be viewed as the victim…

It’s the criminalization of prostitution that does take actual victims…

As with other victimless crimes, the criminalization of prostitution creates a vast breeding ground for corruption, hypocrisy, and morally dubious law enforcement tactics.”
