However, there almost certainly do exist agencies that do go by these laws and do not facilitate prostitution.
Prostitution in India is legal, In 2010, Mexico Legislators added a law similar to that of the UK called the Anti Trafficking in Persons Act (rough translation) which makes it a crime to offer the sexual services of another person against their will.
The law is still broadly interpreted and has many websites who offered the services of escorts running for cover and even newspapers like El Universal stopped taking classified ads for escorts or "executive massages" because of the law which also goes after anyone promoting the trafficking of persons.
The agency collects the client's contact information and calls the escort.
Usually, to protect the identity of the escort and ensure effective communication with the client, the agency arranges the appointment.
This fact in turn is well-known to police and the political powers, who, where prostitution is illegal, usually prefer to act against more visible and problematic street prostitution.
This has been criticized as hypocrisy, especially where governments license and tax the escort agencies.Clients contact agencies by telephone and offer a description of what kind of escorts are sought.The agency will then suggest an escort who might fit that client's need.Escort agencies often recruit individuals to work as escorts by placing employment advertisements in a magazine or newspaper.Escort agencies typically maintain a list of escorts of different ages and appearances to cater to the varying interests of clients.For many others it’s a daily struggle for survival.
