Why must victims be legally defined as prostitutes in order for a prosecution to take place?

Socially the woman has become a "kept woman". It would not be rape, at least in most jurisdictions, because the officer is using neither force nor threats of force.

First of all, contrary to popular legend, it is not legal for anyone regardless of employer to solicite prostitution in Las Vegas.
