Prostitution in Hawaii is illegal  but common. There are about brothels in Oahu alone. Under Hawaii Revised Statutes sectionboth the buying and selling of sex are illegal, and also related activities such as solicitingpromoting prostitution and allowing premises to be used for prostitution, are prohibited. It was legal for Law Enforcement Officers to have sex with prostitutes if they were 'collecting evidence' of prostitution. A new law in outlawed this practice. A Bill was put before Hawaii's state government in Januarywith the intent of decriminalising prostitution.
On the second reading it was referred to the "House Committee on Judiciary" for further investigation and the case was adjourned sine die. Prior to European contact, there was no prostitution on the islands. Polygamy was common and there was no need for prostitutes. Once European sailors started to come to the island and offered money or goods for sex to the native women, prostitution started. A law was passed in that prohibited "illicit connections," including prostitution. This was soon followed by a "Law Respecting Lewdness".
Inthe "Act to Mitigate the Evils and diseases arising from Prostitution" was passed. It required registration and periodic medical examinations for prostitutes. By the s, Iwilei had become a closed stockade, its 5 entrances controlled by police. Inside there were brightly coloured houses where the prostitutes worked. In there were 26 Hawaiian, 5 half-caste, 8 French2 British1 American and Japanese prostitutes registered. The "bawdy houses" soon set up in Chinatown. An era of unofficial regulation followed, which was endorsed by the US military.
There were struggles between the police and military, neither wanting to be seen as being in charge of the red-light district. The strike lasted 22 days. The best-known prostitute of the period was Jean O'Hara. She is credited with inventing the "bull pen" system where a single prostitute would work three rooms in rotation: In one room a man would be undressing, in a second room the prostitute would be having sex, and in the third room the man would be dressing. With price controls circumventing the laws of supply and demand, O'Hara's system sped up the process and allowed each prostitute to see many more 'johns' every day.
Following pressure from various groups, Hawaii's Governor, Ingram Stainbackordered the closure of the red-light district. On September 21,all the houses of prostitution were ordered to close. Hawaii is a source, destination and transit location for sex trafficking. Women from ChinaJapan, KoreaThailandRussia and parts of Eastern Europe are trafficked to the island and forced into prostitution. Many are moved on to cities on the American mainland after a few months. In a Chinese national was convicted of trafficking. He also trafficked women to work in massage parlors in New York City.
In Januaryan American male was charged with prostitution and sex trafficking offences.
