What is the definition of prostitution in Michigan?
    Prostitution is vaguely defined as exchanging a “lewd or immoral act” by the payment in money or other forms of consideration. This does not mean that you actually had sexual intercourse. Lewd is described as physical contact between two people in which one person touches the genitals, buttocks or (female) breasts of the other person, or simulates any lewd physical contact.

OBSCENE MATERIAL (EXCERPT)
Act 343 of 1984

Sec. 4.
(1) “Sexual conduct” means 1 or more of the following:
    (a) Representations or descriptions of ultimate sexual acts, normal or perverted, actual or simulated.
    (b) Representations or descriptions of masturbation, excretory functions, or a lewd exhibition of the genitals.

(2) “Simulated” means the explicit depiction or description of any of the types of conduct set forth in the definition of sexual conduct under subsection (1), which creates the appearance of such conduct.

(3) “Ultimate sexual acts” means sexual intercourse, fellatio, cunnilingus, anal intercourse, or any other intrusion, however slight, of any part of a person's body or of any object into the genital or anal openings of another person's body, or depictions or descriptions of sexual bestiality, sadomasochism, masturbation, or excretory functions.
