Justipedia explains Pandering

Pandering is typically done by pimps. Pimps often have multiple prostitutes who work for them. The pimps bring clients to the prostitutes or vice versa. Pandering is one of a number of sex-related crimes that exist in America. However, there are pimps who operate legally in Nevada, and pander to clients in accordance with Nevada state law. In order to be convicted of pandering, it must be clear that the person guided the client to a prostitute successfully, and that business took place.
