The Lowell Sun, in its May 16, 2013 editorial titled "Sexual Servitude No Victimless Crime," stated:

“There’s some sentiment out there that prostitution — except for the potential of sexually transmitted disease and the marital implosion it may cause — is really one of those victimless pursuits that really doesn’t fit the description of a crime.

Aside from the societal concerns that sex for money constantly erodes whatever moral values the majority of us still hold dear, the more immediate harm is dealt to these vulnerable young women who are usually duped into a life of dependency and abuse.”
