# [[MyGirlIsNotASlut The social stigma attached to prostitution]] is very mild, if it exists at all. In many cases, the sex trade is considered no worse than any other service job. Indeed, it might even be ''sanctioned'' by that society. [[note]] (For example, a society in which {{Arranged Marriage}}s are the norm and seeking out sex elsewhere is more-or-less accepted. Or a society in which prostitution is an aspect of the society's religion, as with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_prostitution temple prostitutes]], who were usually also priests/priestesses.) Or one in which boys or girls are given ProfessionalSexEd when they are considered marriageable adults, or some other form of SexAsRiteOfPassage.[[/note]] If and when s/he decides to [[INeedAnIndexByMonday pursue a different career path]], their sex work won't be [[NeverLiveItDown held against them]]. Nor does it hinder their chances of getting into real long-term relationships or marriages. Sex workers are never harassed by police or the MoralGuardians. This problem especually, is what have lead some countries to ban the act of paying for sex, but not prostitution. UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} was the first country to do so in 1999, followed by UsefulNotes/{{Iceland}} and UsefulNotes/{{Norway}} in 2011, UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland in 2014 and UsefulNotes/{{France}} in 2016.
