In ancient Greece it was an honoured profession. Throughout history it has had a place at the edge of polite society. As long as it is a free choice by the woman and her safety is protected I am in favour of it being legalized everywhere.
That could only lead to subsidies and entitlements. Society should have nothing to do with sex, that comes from nature.
So the government would have declared NH a sex-impoverished region and paid the hookers to sit on their ***... when anyone could plainly see that the problem was those sweaters!
Yes and it's much more honorable profession than say congressman!
Yup, totally sensible.
Legalize prostitution but ban guns.
Yup, make ***** not war
Part of the regulation must be frequent health screening/treatment. STDs are real. The patrons would need screening for the same reason as the provider of service.<br />
It would also cut down on the abuse pros suffer at the hands of pimps.
i could imagine some vicious bureaucrat cutting off a woman's welfare benefits because she could be supporting herself as a ***** instead of taking money from the taxpayers
Yeah, the POOR $1000+/night type who were the downfall of Eliot Spitzer really NEED welfare.
Only when man has finally lost it.
That's right. Man already has.
Prostitution isn't something little girls grow up wanting to be. They fall into it because life makes an extremely unfortunate turn for them and they don't see any other way. They need to be protected. Perhaps the issue is more about regulation.
I don't think you can compare being a tax lawyer to selling your body for sex and anything else anyone wants to do to it. Sure there are plenty of jobs out there that don't exactly demand respect but I can't think of one that brings with it the stigma of prostitution.
I agree with you about the jail thing. Prostitution is legal where I live if it's in a brothel and I think that's a good thing but only because it's somewhat regulated in that environment. I still think it's sad and unfortunate that they end up there. There will always be psychological effects years down the track.
Ew. That just isn't something that should be bought and sold.
Just because something always has been, doesn't mean it should be.
I understand where you are coming from, but is it not our job as people to protect our humanity and what it stands for?
Not only that, law should not define our morals or lack of them.
I agree, there isn't anything inhumane about it, but it's not something meant to be bought & sold - regardless of possible punishments.
It's degrading. And yes it is destructive; it destroys a society's morals. As much as we'd like to disagree, morals matter & have a great impact.
On another note, you asked the question and I gave an honest answer that I will stick to. Is that an issue?
True. To as well *tips hat*
Sure, why not? If it's between two consenting adults I don't see what the problem is with it
Agreed. If only legal and consenting adults were the only ones involved it would be so simple.
it is legal in my country.
Right on agree 110%
Regular health exams, legal brothels, etc. It would keep a lot more people safe.
That's fine too.
Just buy them a drink at the bar.
I don't .... some are innocent children forced to act like adults....
It happens anyway. The child slave trade is alive and well unfortunately.
If it were strictly regulated to protect them, if the prostitutes insisted that they liked their lives as prostitutes, then yes, I think that they should be able to do what they do.
Well heck they don't even really have to like it. Ya can't all have jobs you love!
sounds like some one is low on money or horney
What teenager do you think goes looking for a prostitute???
One with money?
That doesn't explain me not wanting too get one though
