Being 16 years-old the age of consent, prostitution itself is legal in Spain , but several surrounding activities are not. In Spain , working as a prostitute is considered a contravention of public morality.
Prostitution in Spain is neither an offence nor a crime, that's why pornography is sold openly in most book stands and streets as zoophily and Sadomasoquism material are legal like in the Netherlands , another European country.
Most of the sex workers at "clubs", "hot-bed" hotels, parks and other public spaces around Spain are immigrants, coming from Eastern Europe , Colombia , Ecuador and Brazil .
According to a Spanish association of sex clubs, AECA, there are some 400,000 women working in the sex trade in Spain . You'll find hookers everywhere in Spain as streetwalkers, dancers, waitresses, escorts, and independent sex workers due to the restrictions with regard to the location or time of sex work.
Although all its brothels were outlawed once in 1956, they live on, nowadays, by the code name of "club". There are more than 1,500 such clubs in Spain , including the also called "bares americanos" (American bars in English) which usually require that you buy several expensive drinks for the lady –sometimes more expensive that yours- before “business” is discussed.
But as we know, prostitution in Spain takes place in brothels, sex clubs, bars, discotheques, cabarets, hotels, uncovered coffee shops, massage parlors, American bars, and on the street. Mostly, they have a full-service bar in the entry area. There, the clients meet the women, who live on the premises. After a few drinks, the customer chooses one of the women to go to a private room for sex.
In the northeastern autonomous community of Catalonia , the only local government in Spain that regulates brothels, each room used in the sex industry must have bidet, a shower, furniture, soundproofing and ventilation.
