1999 was a big year for many countries. In Sweden, it meant the arrival of the Swedish model, which made it illegal to pay for sex. This meant that clients suddenly found themselves on the wrong side of the law and at risk of getting into trouble. The Danish went the other way. Denmark decided to instead decriminalise sex work, believing that it would be easier to police a trade that is illegal rather than illegal. And Denmark hasn’t stopped there.
