While it's found in most cultures, prostitution isn't mistakenly debated or confused as acceptable in most of them, so there's little commentary I need to give. Here are the passages.
  • Leviticus 19:29  hub
  • Leviticus 21:9  hub
  • Deuteronomy 23:17-18  hub
  • Numbers 15:39  hub
  • 1 Corinthians 6:12-20  hub
That said, there are two more important verses to read. Like many sins, this is not unforgivable. God loved/​loves us when we were sinners and took the punishment for us (Romans 5:8) if we accept Him. One evidence of our decision to accept Him is repentance (Jeremiah 31:19, Matthew 4:17, Acts 3:19, Acts 26:20, 2 Corinthians 7:10). But if we don't repent, then that's a different story (Matthew 11:20-24, Romans 2:5).
  • Matthew 21:31-32   hub
  • Hebrews 11:31  hub
By the way, when God says don't covet in the 10th commandment (Exodus 20:17), don't think it's ok to force covetous thoughts on someone else, or taunt others with things that would make them be covetous. This is why women are instructed to be modest (1 Timothy 2:9-10). Because even though Peter has a point when he calls wives the weaker partner (1 Peter 3:7) one way women are (generally) stronger than men is coveting. Ladies, please don't contribute to male failures by flaunting your body. This goes for every area of life, whether you're at church, at school, at work, on TV, on a jog, or travelling in between these places. Related, if you use sexual attraction (lust) to sell anything (in the form of a monetary purchase or a swayed decision), whether you're selling your own body or picking out stock photography to use for a marketing campaign, then either you're sinning or in serious danger of sinning (Luke 17:1-2).
