This research examines the existing data in order to determine if there is sufficient criminological, sociological, and academic research done that can develop way

to reduce the demand of prostitution. Seeking to use different ways to reduce the demand for prostitution, it is found that legalization, strict enforcement of legal norms, and a number of public shaming ideas could very well be useful. Men between the ages of 25 to 40 are the highest solicitation age group, these men make up a majority of the statistics. Survey information from StatisticBrain (2016) and Roeben (2015) are utilized to demonstrate the attitudes of sexually adventurous men who solicit prostitutes no matter what their relationship status may be.
