The Nordic Model also criminalizes those who traffic women to sell for sex, also known as Pimps. The most common argument against this is that the source of income is being taken away from prostituted women which will only serve to further impoverish them. However, what is often ignored is that the Nordic Model has an emphasis on creating funding for shelters and educational centers.
Sex Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally. It is one of the biggest lies in society (Farley et., 2014). The Vanderbilt Law Review indicates that the majority of prostitutes do not enter the prostitution lifestyle on their own free will choice, but instead becomes a prostitute due to a variety of vulnerabilities that both pimps and traffickers exploit. This explains why young women get blindsided and think they are becoming a prostitute when in reality they are a sex trafficking victim (Elrod 2015). When the United States made prostitution illegal, it did not change the mentality of the johns.
The first kind is the ‘traditional’ type of prostitute, the streetwalker, mostly depicted in films and mainstream discourse. The streetwalker prostitute is uneducated, poor, and requires the security of a pimp . This category of prostitutes almost never has autonomy over who they get to have sex with and are usually required to follow instructions from their pimp, lest they get abused. The second type of prostitute are call girls. They differ from the first mainly due to the fact that they do not have a pimp dictating their actions.
Obscenity, in terms, refers to, “any utterance or act that strongly offends the prevalent morality of the time.” Derived from the Latin obscaena (offstage) a cognate of the Ancient Greek root skene, because some potentially offensive content, such as murder or sex, was depicted offstage in classical drama, the word can be used to indicate a strong moral repugnance. In other words, the word can also be said to mean “the character or quality of being obscene or an act, utterance, or item tending to corrupt the public morals by its indecency or lewdness.” Talking in legal terms, obscenity applies to anything offensive to morals and is often equated with the term Pornography.

Hence, the conviction under section 376 IPC was quashed and accused / appellant was held guilty of the offence of adultery and convicted under Section 497 IPC. Scholars of law and jurisprudence very much question the inherent legality of such a judgment in the light of Section 198 Cr PC. The protection of the rights of one party should not be secured at the cost of sacrificing the rights of the
