somehow amounts to a moral defense / superficial sexual acts with ugly, foreign, old and for the most part, perverted-minded men? / The whole idea is crude and degrading / Prostitution is fundamentally motivated by the sexual lust of the John and the financial incentive of the prostitute / trauma - abuse and neglect - was a regular feature of their early life. And hence, why as adults they can be so flippant towards the 'sanctity' of their physical body's / Having completely "renounced" the world and it's rules, she takes on, predictably, other issues: drug abuse, child abuse/neglect etc

if you were a parent, a father or a mother, would you want to daughter to grow up and sell her physical body for money in exchange for superficial sexual acts with ugly, foreign, old and for the most part, perverted-minded men?
So the next question is, why do some girls choose prostitution;
and why are former sex workers, and people with an interest in legalizing this activity, so convinced that it is a respectable practice?
Prostitution is fundamentally motivated by the sexual lust of the John and the financial incentive of the prostitute.
As said, no parent could imagine their daughter becoming a prostitute because the idea of offering your body - your very physical vehicle in this life - for sale to others reduces the individual "I" to an "it".
I think you have a horse in this race, your use of language shows this.
All of these comments show clearly your own fundamental aversions.
You have lumped everyone together making massively incorrect assumptions about ALL Prostitutes and ALL the men who use their services.
Perhaps before you condemn the rest of society to live in a world defined by your narrow views, you may wish to get out and about and find out the real reasons from both sides of the business.
What you have stated is more indicative of the model where prostitution is illegal and run largely by organized crime. Take the crime out of the profession and the changes are dramatic.

The physical risks for prostitutes are quite high.
Although the profession may be "chosen", in reality it rarely is. It is normally because the prostitute feels there are no other options available.
The prostitute has to fulfill frequently violent (due to the imprinting nature of TV, movies and video games on clients) acts which put the prostitute at risk for injury and or death.
it is not unusual for prostitutes to lose the ability to control their bowels from repeated damage to these muscles, later necessitating colostomy bags.
VIOLENCE IN PROSTITUTION ...Threatened with a weapon:
78% Physically assaulted: 82% Raped: 82%
Current or past homelessness: 84%
As a child, was hit or beaten by a caregiver until injured or bruised: 49% Sexually abused as a child: 65-95%
Women who worked in Nevada's legal brothels said they were like prisons where you have to turn tricks.
Rimmed with high-security fencing and an electronic gate, they can look like a detention camp.
The women live in lockdown conditions and can't leave the premises unless they're accompanied by a male pimp.
Living and working in cramped, dark rooms, they're on call 24 hours a day.
This is what happens when the law protects people who profit from commercial sexual exploitation.
It’s the ideal business model. It's the best way to get a woman to turn as many tricks as possible.
POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER People most likely to develop PTSD: PROSTITUTEs, PORN STARS, rape victims, battered women, childhood sexual abuse, a person experiencing psychological or physical torture, ... and WAR or COMBAT EXPOSURE . ... Prostitution is MULTI-TRAUMATIC whether its physical location is in clubs, brothels, hotels/motels/john’s homes, motor vehicles or on the streets.
There are women have said that they felt safer in street prostitution compared to legal Nevada brothels,
where they were not permitted to reject any customer. ...
Also reported there was no difference in the incidence of PTSD in the two types of prostitution,
suggesting that the trauma that results in prostitution is the same for ALL who are in it.
Every time you say, “Those girls like what they do”– pick up a “porn: magazine, watch a “porn” video, click onto that website, call that lady of the night, listen to music that degrades women (most hip hop) or go to that bachelor party, strip club, know this: It could be your sister, your mother, your best friend’s girl or even your daughter—and then think, is it all really worth the “thrill” of self gratification that lasts only a couple minutes?
You are destroying lives of countless women while you do it—feeding the monster the sex industry has become. And now YOU are part of it too….for there must be ENABLERS to create VICTIMS.
In the USA
“Who are the victims of domestic sex trafficking?”
Minors are deceived, manipulated, forced, or coerced into prostitution every day.
Nationally, the average age at which girls first become exploited
through prostitution is 12–14 years old,
but direct service providers around the country report they have been encountering increasingly younger victims over the past decade ... For example, service providers in New York City report that the average age that girls enter prostitution has dropped from 14 to 13 or 12 years of age in recent years.... The average age that boys and transgender youth begin prostitution is even younger: 11–13 years old ...
I used to work on the GI/GU floor. I had this patient that had a colostomy in one quad of his abdomen and a large scar where he used to have another colostomy in another area of his abdomen. Come to find out later that he had the first appliance because his anal sphincter was ruined from having sex and the first colostomy was ruined the same way.
risk factors for anal cancer include: Anal sex – People participating in anal sex, both men and women, are at increased risk.
Anal sex much like any other form of sex should be consensual and pre planned. There are consequences to this sex act as it can cause irreparable damage to the sphincter muscle and the lining around the anus. Dr. Drew Pinsky has spoken many times stating that active anal sex can eventually lead to one having to wear a colostomy bag as the sphincter muscle no longer has the ability to contract and that the bowel will move without anything to stop it from excreting it's matter. The fact of the matter is the sphincter muscle was designed to retract muscularly from the inside out not vice versa. When the anal cavity is expanded over and over, that muscle will tear and fizzure and cannot like a leg muscle, be exercised back into its former shape and strength. In the most basic of terms, once its gone, its gone for good.

Really? Where do you teach and where have you published?
I've been around the world and, as a volunteer doc to everyone, including sex workers, I see your hysteria as bs and want to see some bona fides.
You find anal sex horrible--do you want to ban homosexuality ?
Boxers and football players beat each other into brain damage. Do you want that illegal as well?
Japan already boasts the world’s most advanced sex dolls from firms such as Kanojotoys or Orient Industries based in Tokyo. Around £6,000 buys the very superior Yasuragi 'dutch wife' sex doll with extras such as movable eyes and flexible fingers and a skin texture its makers say is indistinguishable from the real thing.
