Some pertinent questions for anyone who thinks prostitution should be legal:

1. How do you think most prostitutes end up in that profession?
2. Do you think prostitutes have high self esteem?
3. Do you think prostitutes find happiness and satisfaction in their 'work' ?
4. Would you want to be a prostitute?
5. And lastly, would you want your daughter, mother, or sister to be a prostitute? Why or why not?

1. They need the $
2. I imagine some do.
3. I imagine some do, probably depends on the client.
4. Hell no, i'd never make a dime.
5. No, not at all. But it isn't my choice to make.

It isn't...it's the States's business


"The State" is the government. Each state has one.


Hell its worse then that.

You have city government, county government, state government,
federal government, and they are hoping to add global governance.

Basically the protection racket the mobsters used to run has
become Government, Inc.

That is why the news stations are constantly selling fear so the
sheeple will continue to go along with funding the military to
the level of the next 25 nations combines, when 24 are our allies.

1. The way it is now? Normally, through drug addiction or desperation.
2. Some, yes. It depends on their situation though. Again, most are driven to it.
3. Some, yes. Some people just like sex.
4. I'm a man so... I can't really answer that question. I can't really say I'd have a problem with women paying me to have sex with them.
5. It depends, honestly, on how safe and clean it was. The way things are today? No. But I wouldn't have an issue with them being a cam girl or stripper, if that's what they enjoy doing.

I honestly believe that most problems associated with the world's oldest profession are made so much worse by it being illegal. And I think people still see sex as some kinda taboo thing... all while plastering images of extreme violence on every tv channel.

Great questions!

I for one, would never in a million years allow a stranger to touch and grope me.

I could not be proud of a daughter, mother or any relative or friend allowing just anyone to touch them and slobber all over them. How could they respect themselves for allowing a complete stranger to do what they want with them? Gross! I don't care who disagrees with me.

Our bodies are our own and sacred and should be shared with one we love and trust, not just some strange guy who wants to get his rocks off.

That's your opinion but that sentence is an oxy moron. If our bodies are our own then why do you say that a woman can not prostitute herself?

I respect your opinion, but is it your right to choose that same opinion for other people? Even if you don't agree with prostitution, you should still defend the right for people to make that choice. I don't do hardcore drugs, but I support having them made legal. Why? Because it would make our streets safer, in the end, and I believe grown adults are capable of making their own decisions.

I never said they could or couldn't. I said I myself wouldn't and that I myself wouldn't respect a woman who does.

Used to be that folks understood that certain things were detrimental to a better foundation of society. Marriage, the work ethic ect and that it was the responsibility of law to protect these things and more.

So here we are talking about prostitution as a challenge to these when the bigger dangers are the wall street whores that get bailed out for running their big league crap game, corporate and personal whore welfare eroding the earnings of hard working people on a daily basis, whore politicians ect we could go on and on.

Typically whether someone enjoys being a prostitute has to do with the compensation they get for their services and the control they have over their part in the business. Just like any other job, the satisfaction you get by doing it has mostly to do with the compensation you get for the amount of work you have to do and the control you have over your work environment.

So if you're a street whore who's making scraps and taking whatever clients you can get of course it's going to horrible. Not to mention if you don't even get to keep all the money because you have a pimp or a drug addiction or whatever.

Then you have upper scale prostitution. Usually these women are quite fine or even happy about what they are doing. They get some choice in their clients and how it all goes down as well as how much money they get which is usually quite a bit. These women however don't just get to be upper scale for their looks though either. There is competition from other women and most of the time you have to be intelligent, have class, know how to handle yourself in certain situations, etc.

But like any job it depends on the pay and your own personal control of that business. The more pay and more control you have the more satisfaction you'll get out of it.

Since the issue of respect has come up, I'll just say that I'd be bitterly disappointed in a society that legalised prostitution but then denied respect to the persons who chose to do the work.

Even now, whilst it's mostly illegal, people still deserve respect as human beings.

Legal or not, I'm still not going to respect it. They can legalize it all they want and people will do whatever they want. I myself don't want any part of it and neither does anyone I know. Go ahead and make it legal, but how many people would want a brothel in their neighborhood? I don't want sleazy weirdo's coming around all the time. LOL Hey, it's just my opinion and that's how I feel.

So you're saying that men that pay for sex are "creepy weirdos"? How did you come to that determination?

You can respect many things about a person, but it doesn't mean you have to respect everything about them. You could have a friend who has mental problems and likes to harm people and animals. You can understand the person has mental issues. You can have compassion for the person and feel bad, but you don't have to respect that they are harming living creatures.

It would probably be kept to the poorer communities and remain hidden in the upper class areas. I mean, those people are already all around you, you simply don't see it. From escorts to high class working girls, the culture is engraved within our society. I'd imagine they'd be spread out much like strip clubs are now... probably becoming one in the same, eventually.

Stripping and hooking are not the same. They CAN be(depending on the individual) but there is a difference. Just saying.

I know this won't change your opinion but I want you to consider something. All of the things you said about prostitution seem like the seedy gross side-effects of it being illegal.

If it were legalized and respected, it wouldn't be sleazy and weird. Think less Law and Order and more like the companions in FireFly. Legalized prostitution would probably look like something between the two. Which, as many said, isn't any more sleazy than banking or selling used cars.

It may not be glamorous but it doesn't have to be gross, either.

It really never was about telling her what to do with her body. Everybody knows there are prostitutes and whores.

They don't call them hookers for nothing. There is an old proverb "by a whorish woman a man is reduced to a peace of bread". Prostitutes turn easy sex into easy money and its easy for a man to get hooked on that like gambling, drugs ect and thus can and does bring some to financial ruin along with their family.

Oh I get that, I was just saying that those that choose to partake in that aspect of the business would probably end up in or near those clubs. Simply because the clientele are already there. Where exactly that leads is up to the individual owners, I'd assume. But I can't imagine it ever being legal to require such a thing for employment.

I don't know, it just came to mind and I wrote it down. I've never known anyone who had to pay for sex. Things pop into my head like, are they too weird to get a woman to date and have sex with? Makes me wonder if something is wrong with them. Are they married and cheating on their wives? have to wonder about that too.
