It is NEVER legal for ANY servicemember to pay for prostitution, it is a violation of the UCMJ, regardless of whether you're in uniform, regardless if you're off duty. Just don't do it. Ever. UCMJ applies to you 24/7, 365 (or 366)/year, wherever you are in the world or even in outer space.

If you are subject to the UCMJ via active duty or title 10 orders then it would be a potential violation regardless of state law. If you trade money for sex you can be charged regardless of whether the transaction contains other items of nominal value.
