Decriminalise prostitution and remove it from the public eye to protect members of the public for whom this activity is unacceptable - This is the opinion of various policy makers who were approached by the researcher. In the past various methods have been implemented, in different countries, in an attempt to solve the problem of prostitution - but with no apparent success. The decriminalisation of prostitution may have certain advantages : the prostitutes themselves may be protected from exploitation and clients will be free to choose the services provided without fear of prosecution; and certain areas may be set aside where sexworkers can operate so that the general public will not have to be confronted with these activities. The overall opinion of respondents is that prostitution can never be rooted out completely; however, decriminalization will assist the police in controlling prostitution.
