    I need to finish off my essay answering whether prostitution and pornography is Deviant or/and a crime?
    I would really appreciate some help or any useful links that will help me structure my answer.

    Protitution in itself is not a crime and neither is the exchange of sex for money a crime. However, kerb crawling, owning or managing a brothel, pandering, pimping, soliciting are offences under the sexual Offences Act 2003.

    S. 63-67 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 make it illegal to be in possession of pornographic material which may threaten a person's life, or cause serious injury to them.

    Thank you! that has actually really helped to sum up my essay, since you are a Criminology student would you consider Bigamy as devious?

    Bigamy is illegal under S. 57 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 in England and Wales. I'd say it was definitely deviant too. Lol
