For those who ask

Quote:
I don't think you're going to get a satisfying answer here. The real answer is that, yes, marriage is consideration and exchanging sex for marriage is prostitution, according to the definition provided. However, custom and tradition have carved out certain exceptions which society tolerates because society prefers it that way. Law - especially common law - isn't a formal mathematical proof where you can point at a line that's out of place and invalidate the whole thing. It's more like a high school English essay, with lots of notes scrawled in the margins. With coffee stains.

For white supremacist that ask if is this american lawyers or indonesian lawyers.

Western culture is so superior every part of the world is more or less westernized.

Hence, the answer to your question is YES it's western AMERICAN LAWYER. And it works THE EXACT same way in Indonesia.

That being said, due to statist muslim. In Indonesia, people think that someone is a prostitute if the state doesn't sanction marriage. So some do not think contract marriage is prostitution even though the girl change husband every day.

However, yes, free sex is LEGAL in Indonesia, just like in US. Getting paid for it is TECHNICALLY illegal.

A little casual research shows that Indonesian law only punishes pimps, not prostitutes or their users. That's not like American law.

Maybe I read it incorrectly? Perhaps you could link to pertinent parts of Indonesian criminal law. Thanks.
