Prostitution is defined by RSA 645:2. Generally it involves having sexual contact in exchange for money. Such a charge can be brought against either the prostitute or the customer. It is also illegal to transport someone for the purposes of prostitution, or to allow people to conduct this type of exchange in one’s residence, or business.
Most prostitution is a misdemeanor, but if one of the people involved is under 18 years of age, or is forced it can be charged as a felony. Prostitution is illegal regardless of the sex of individuals involved.
