@Pi zero: Based on the headlines in this category, I think it is much better suited for Category:Crime and law. Sure, there are cultural aspects to prostitution and I suppose it can be considered entertainment for the clients, but by that logic we should include it in Category:Economy and business as well. Nevertheless, I think "Crime and law" is the appropriate home as virtually all the articles are about prostitution as a crime, crimes against prostitutes or about legalizing it. --SVTCobra 12:30, 28 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Raises deep questions about the section categories. I don't have an immediate position; will have to think about it awhile. --Pi zero (talk) 12:54, 28 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not Category:Crime and law; that's a biasing choice. The neutral description of it does seem to be "entertainment"; although money is involved, almost everything involves money and that alone doesn't put it all under Category:Economy and business. So, after a round of cogitation, I'm inclined to stick with BRS's choice. --Pi zero (talk) 05:53, 7 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I guess I can live with that even though our headlines tell a different tale. Prostitution is, after all, legal in a number of countries. Can't wait for the new playground insult to become "Your momma is a cultural entertainer!" --SVTCobra 14:05, 7 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
