Jerry mentions that prostitution is legal in Argentina. This is not exactly correct. As far as I know it is not considered illegal, which is not the same as "legal". This is, prostitution is tolerated and not criminalized but still lacks a law to regulate it. So, if you are a hooker you can work the streets without the police bothering you much but pimps, white slavery, prostibules, child prostitution, etc., are still illegal.
