Is it prostitution payment or a normal day gift?

I had sexual relations with a man, over a course of a week. Every time we would have sexual intercourse, he would buy me extravagant items or spend large amounts of money on fancy meals for me. He even offered me just cash afterwards. Now the man is saying that if I don't continue our sexual relations, he will go to the police for illegal prostitution. I'm not a prostitute and I don't work at a cat house or anything like that either. I don't want to do anything illegal here. Am I excepting this gifts as payment for prostitution or are they gifts?

    He can't do anything. If the police believed him he would be admitting a crime himself. (S olicitation of prostitution.) It is only prostitution if you demand payment for sex. Otherwise, it is considered dating and the presents you accepted were presents. He is trying to blackmail you.

    Since he would be a guilty as you if it were prostitution it is not likely he will go to police so I wouldn't worry about that. If there was an agreement ahead of time that you would be paid by whatever means for the sex that it would likely be illegal. If it was something that was done for you after the sex even in gratitude for the sex it would not be a crime.

    They are gifts and he is a dirtbag. Drop him. He will have to confess to being a john to report you and will be guilty of extortion. Tell him to pound sand instead of you and be more careful next time.

    Eye of the beholder. You should immediately contact an attorney. You should also save any electronic communication. If in the state of California, you might be able to legally record his phone calls w/out his permission per PC633.5. But talk to your attorney first. Your post describes extortion, a felony, by your otherwise generous suitor. That is way up the criminal totem pole from an alegation of prostitution a mere misdemeanor.
