Is Sexual Surrogacy Legal in the U.S.?

By July 10, 2013

Follow me on:

The recent article in the New York Times about sexual surrogacy in France included just a little bit about legal issues. Surrogacy is clearly legal in some countries. Israel, for example, has probably the most active surrogate community in the world. Sex surrogacy may be covered by insurance companies when working with a surrogate is recommended following an accident.

In the United States the legal status of the practice of sex surrogacy is much more vague. A few months ago I interviewed surrogates and a few lawyers for an article I wrote about surrogacy, and if there's one thing I learned it's that claiming ignorance is no defense. There may not be a lot of solid answers, but here's what we know, and a few things to think about, if you're considering seeing, or becoming, a sexual surrogate in the U.S.

Is It Legal to See a Sex Surrogate in the US?
