Hundreds of people sell sex every single day in Finland. The selling and buying of sex is legal, unless the trade involves pimping or victims of human trafficking. Earlier this week news emerged that three Finns were suspected of pimping and money laundering in Spain. The men are suspected of having laundered up to 40 million euros gained from criminal activities since EU criminal justice agency Eurojust said the operation included human trafficking in a scheme bringing women, mostly from Nigeria, to Finland and Sweden to work as prostitutes. Detective sergeant Kenneth Eriksson from the Helsinki Police Department said the anonymity of the internet makes it difficult to catch pimps, who can easily manage prostitutes from outside of Finland.

Prostitution in Finland the exchange of sexual acts for money is legal, but soliciting in a public place and organised prostitution operating a brothel or a prostitution ring, and other forms of pimping are illegal. The socio-legal history of prostitution in Finland is similar to that of other European and Western countries, with various periods of tolerance, regulation and abolition. The passing of the Civil Code of was the first nation-wide law for all of Sweden, as well as Finland, that prohibited prostitution. These religious values were reflected in the common law across Europe and most Western societies throughout this period. The next major development came in the form of the Penal Code of Finland,  which prohibited both pandering and prostitution.
12 Things Tourists Should Never Do in Finland
Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. A lot of visitors are invited to use the sauna as it is a well-established Finnish cultural custom. Different cultural attitudes to nudity make many visitors want to cover up rather than go in fully naked. It is understandable, but not recommended. Either politely decline the sauna or be brave and bare all.
Russian-speaking women who engage in commercial sex need to constantly monitor their own movements and behaviour to avoid being identified as someone who engages in commercial sex. Identification may lead to problems in crossing the national border, inability to find housing, encounters with the police, and anxieties about their personal information being shared with social services, landlords or future employers. Russian-speaking women who engage in commercial sex respond to this by being very mobile. This, in turn, increases their earnings, but disrupts their connection to their countries of origin and prevents them from forming strong bonds of belonging in Finland.
