5: The definition of prostitution is applied to limited sex acts (e.g. Japan)

Nigeria

Procuring for prostitution; knowingly living on the earnings of the prostitution of others; habitually being in the company of a prostitute or exercising control, and direction over a sex worker; keeping or managing a brothel or being the tenant, lessee, or occupier of a place used for purposes of habitual prostitution are illegal. (Sections 220-225 Criminal Code of Nigeria 1990)
Another provision makes it illegal for anyone including an occupier to permit premises to be used for habitual prostitution. (225b)

Japan

The Prostitution Prevention Law of 1956, makes it illegal to have 'intercourse with an unspecified person in exchange for payment' Article 3 states that 'No person may either do prostitution or become the customer of it'. However penalties are defined only for soliciting by prostitutes, organising prostitution, operating brothels, procuring or inducing a person for sex work, coercing a person into sex work, and profiting from the sex work of others. This means that buying sex is not effectively illegal.
