A survey found that up to one in three Spanish men had paid for sex. Prostitution is currently unregulated in Spain, and there is no punishment for those who offer paid sexual services of their own will, as long as it does not take place in public spaces. However, pimping or acting as a proxy between a sex worker and a potential client is illegal. The industry has boomed since its decriminalisation and it is commonly estimated that aroundwomen work as prostitutes in Spain.
This Socialist Party PSOE proposal comes at a time when issues such as gender violence and sexual consent have been taking centre stage in Spanish public debate. However, CATS, a charity which provides support to sex workers in southeastern Spain, warned that policies aimed at abolition are unlikely to work, instead sending the sex industry further underground.
The manifesto called prostitution "one of the cruellest aspects of the feminisation of poverty and one of the worst forms of violence against women". However two years on from the election, no legislation has yet been tabled.
Spanish media report that the PSOE would need to agree on a draft with their left-wing Podemos coalition partners before presenting a bill to parliament, so there is still a long way to go. PSOE equality secretary Carmen Calvo, quoted by Efe, said "we've passed other laws which were much more difficult, so we'll get this one done", though she warned of "ridiculous traps" frequently placed in the path of feminists. Supporters of Spain's current system say that it has brought huge benefits to the women working in the trade and made life safer for them.
However in recent years ificant concerns have grown around the potential for women to be trafficked into sex work.
