I don't see how trading sexual favors for money is any different that trading sexual favors for a steak and lobster dinner, a new living room sofa or in exchange for hubs cleaning out the garage. It's an exchange between consenting adults and nobody's business but the participants.

Sure, they won’t charge anybody for soliciting sex in San Francisco but try eating a breakfast sandwich on the BART platform and see what happens to you.

The problem I have with this is that he was elected to prosecute people who break the law. Not the laws HE agrees with, All laws. If you don't like a law lobby your representatives to change the law. Ignoring a law / refusing to prosecute offenders is dereliction of duty.

A good percentage of women in prostitution is because of drug addiction. Not many on the restaurant side.

Have you ever played a civilization game?

If one of your cities was seeing an increase in disease which lead to you spending more on medicine, causing a huge loss of funds. would you go the route of saying the people of the city are consulting adults and let them spread disease if it's their adult choice

Or do you do the best you can and intervene by establishing rules that prevent the spread of disease? Which leads to less money being spend on medical which leads to greater wealth

Legalization will make it harder for drug addicts to engage in prostitution. Sure, some still will do it but their Johns will likely be other crack heads. In other words, they'd keep it contained among themselves most likely. Most men with more than a few bucks would seek out legal prostitutes who are clean, tested, etc.

Nevada doesn't have any issues, so we know it works. If anything, it doesn't work in Vegas directly where it is illegal (escorts, bar flies, etc) but seems to work ok in the collar counties where prostitution is legal.

I saw story on it also.

BART platforms might be the last clean places in the city. It is about time they litter them with food wrappers and human waste.

Not sure if I care anymore what happens in San Fran. Let them carry on with their social experiments and isolate them medically if needed.


But seriously, I am on the fence with prostitution. If they defacto make it legal, then every prostitute needs to be registered and checked for STD's on a monthly basis AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE. Because if they are charging money for sex then they as an individual have become a business and need to be treated and taxed and regulated as such.

Solicitation of sex shouldn't be illegal in the first place. Why is it the government's business what two consenting adults do? Plus, by legalizing and regulating the industry you'll get rid of the seedier elements and provide a safer environment for the workers.


I agree to a point, but most prostitution is not based on just a woman trying to make money on her own. it is human trafficking in many different directions.

But by legalizing and regulating it you ultimately hurt the human trafficking business.

Are you a woman? I would think that if you were you would understand that women who go into prostitution do it for all kinds of reasons, not just drug addiction. In fact a whole lot of women get into the sex industry out of desperation, and while sex trafficked teens and drug addicts do make up a percentage of the illicit industry the majority get into it because they have reached a point of desperation in providing for their children.

I've known a hell of a lot of sex workers in my years here on Earth and very few of them have been addicts but almost all of them have been single mothers trying to keep a roof over their kid's heads and shoes on their feet because minimum wage just wont cover the bills and necessities.

THIS!!!! A thousand times, THIS!!!

If you disagree with a law, we have procedures to change it! If enough of your fellow citizens believe as you do, you will succeed. If not, then perhaps you either need to re-think your position or try harder to convince your fellow citizens to believe as you do!

From the Article you posted.

Quality of life Crimes?

“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted,” Boudin vowed in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) questionnaire during the campaign.

Such a noble quest.

“Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted, we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness,” he lamented.

Talk about a State of Emergency....Time to evacuate California!

I don't think it would affect the human trafficking part much, but it would at least put people into different buckets of legality. I do want the whole Government induced morality part to go away, such as setting up sting operations for both Johns and sex workers.

I guess the easy part is to ignore than to change, but then we typically reduce the involvement/punishment in laws we disagree with and that leads to change too. Legalizing pot is a good example of that.
