Prostitution is widely tolerated throughout Spain, few areas visibly clamping down on active prostitution, and the attitude towards working ladies is surprisingly relaxed in a predominantly Catholic country, 1 in four Spanish men admitting to having paid for sex with a prostitute.
However, in some city areas where there is a high concentration of working ladies, confrontation between residents and the street walkers can boil over, becoming a problem for the local authorities, residents complaining that the volumes of women plying their trade are unacceptable, that crime rates rise when there is a higher concentration of prostitutes in a confined area and that businesses suffer because visitors to the area are discouraged by the presence of large numbers of women on the streets.
This situation has arisen in Valencia, a busy port city with a high transient population, a city lashed by the economic downturn and lack of legal work, the same as many other larger seaside ports along the Spanish coast, prostitution an easy option for those with little other means of earning a living.
The city administration has responded to complaints from residents by passing new laws concerning street prostitutes, which came into force in Valencia on Tuesday, meaning that from now on only customers will be fined and the prostitutes themselves will escape punishment. The new law was passed by representatives of the governing PP and the leading opposition party, the PSPV, in full session of the Town Hall of Valencia in April, and among its provisions are fines of up to 2, euros for customers requesting sexual services in the streets of the city.
One of these areas is Velluters, in the centre of the city, where residents hope that the new law will reduce the presence of prostitutes on the streets of their neighbourhood.
