Prostitute

A prostitute is a person who engages in sex for hire. California law defines "prostitute" as a person who engages in sexual intercourse or any lewd act with another person in exchange for money or other compensation (such as drugs). A lewd act is touching the genitals, buttocks, or female breast of either the prostitute or customer with some part of the other person's body for the purpose of sexual arousal or gratification of either person.
