This paper aims at clarifying central aspects of prostitution’s legal treatmentin the Portuguese legal system, specifically the validity of the contracts integrated in prostitution and the objective scope of the crime of incitement to prostitution (article169 of the Portuguese Penal Code). For this purpose, the characterization of these contracts was undertaken, as well as an analysis of the appliable legality parameters for such juridic acts, articulated with the specification of the juridic acts falling within the article 169 and the attempt of understanding this crime’s specific legal meaning.
