Prostitution is legal in Holland with prostitutes openly advertising their services in newspapers and online. Providers have to pay income tax on their earnings from sex. One could think that using sex as a currency would be illegal because - not because it is prostitution, but it would cut out provisions of licensing and tax obligations. However, Dutch parliament voted for this being legal. From now on, students who want to learn driving may pay their teachers by selling them sex in return rather than cash.
