Prostitution is not an offence in Belgium: neither the prostitute nor the clients can be prosecuted. But, there are some special laws regarding sex work:
City or local authorities may also adopt rules and confine prostitution to a particular area, for example.
Being a client is not an offence, as long as the prostitute is 18 or older. Clients, however, always have to keep to the arrangements they made with the prostitute, otherwise they can be charged with indecent assault or rape.
