By employing a comparative study method, information from the two countries have been broken down through content analysis. Mathiesen’s manifest and latent functions where used to analyse the collected material followed by norm theory. The conclusion that forms in this research shows that there are both advantages and disadvantages to criminalize the buyers. Even if its meant to lead the women that sell sexual services from suppression they are automatically seen as criminals and stigmatised from the society when seeking help. In Denmark, the majority of the society has an open stand to prostitution. Women should freely choose whether they want help or not, if they want to stay in prostitution or not. This is the statement Danish help institutions proved to work under. (Less)
