Street prostitution is a common scenario for prostitution. The hazards of being a street prostitute, especially the risk of attacks from clients and the low sanitary standards, make it a very dangerous form of the sex trade. It is considered one of the most contemptible forms of prostitution, and also tends to be the least-earning for sex workers.

In the United States, street prostitution (or actions closely associated with street prostitution) is illegal in most jurisdiction, including many of those which allow other forms of prostitution. In jurisdictions where prostitution is in itself legal, it is often an offence attempt to attempt to procure the services of a prostitute (or in the case of the prostitute, her customer) in a public place. This offence is usually known as solicitation. Laws against solicitation often contain provisions specifically enacted against (or only enforced against) street prostitution.
