Masturbation for Hire
Masturbation for Hire Charges in Georgia
Masturbation for hire is not a specific crime in Georgia. Masturbation, or the act of self-stimulating one's own genitals for sexual pleasure, is generally not illegal in Georgia or any other state as long as it is done in private and not in the presence of others.
After an arrest for a sex crime you should be concerned not only about the present situation, but also about the extreme risk to your safety and life if you are convicted and sent to prison. Anyone facing sex crimes charges has a lot to fear and a lot to lose.
However, it is important to note that in Georgia, as in other states, it is illegal to engage in sexual activity in a public place or in the presence of others. This includes activities such as sexual intercourse, oral sex, and masturbation. Engaging in sexual activity in a public place is generally classified as a misdemeanor, but it can be charged as a felony if the victim is a minor.
Additionally, in Georgia, it is illegal to engage in prostitution or to receive money or other compensation in exchange for sexual favors. This includes offering or agreeing to pay for masturbation or any other sexual act. Prostitution is generally classified as a misdemeanor in Georgia, but it can be charged as a felony if the victim is a minor or if the offender has a prior conviction for this crime.
