The ‘Swedish model’ – a ban against the purchase but not the sale, of sexual services – is gaining support across Europe.
The criminalisation of the purchase of sexual services targets the demand, the sex-buyer and the prospective sex-buyer.
In Sweden 76 000 people were exposed to sexual crimes during 2014.
The majority of the exposed were girls and women and the majority of the perpetrators were young men and men.
