Corpus Christi, TX asked in Consumer Law, Criminal Law, Products Liability and Tax Law for Texas

Q: I have a question in regards to selling your time.

Theoretically, let's say someone sells their time for 4 hrs to a client, and they just completed their 4 hrs of time the client paid for which is at 12 noon. If they mutually enjoyed each other's company and both wanted and had sex at 1230, since it's off the clock post companionship time paid for, will it be considered illegal and difficult to fight in court if well documented it was 30 mins after the time paid for?

A: If you are asking whether it is illegal if the money wasn't for sex, the answer is no it is not illegal.

Now, it may be difficult to convince law enforcement the first 4 hours was what was paid for and any sex after the 4 hours wasn't. But, I like the argument.
