Paedophiles and sexual deviants do not buy sex so legalising prostitution will not stop the depraved from preying on young children or committing deviant acts.
As has been pointed out, prostitution is legal in Australia. We still have a big problem with paedophilia; we certainly have more than our fair share of rape attacks and deviant abuse surfaces as well.
Nothing will stop these low lifes.
A popular misconception is that the Coriolis effect determines the direction in which bathtubs or toilets drain, and whether water always drains in one direction in the Northern Hemisphere, and in the other direction in the Southern Hemisphere. This myth is perpetuated by the Simpsons episode "Bart Vs. Australia." In reality, the Coriolis effect is a few orders of magnitude smaller than other random influences on drain direction, such as the geometry of the sink, toilet, or tub; whether it is flat or tilted; and the direction in which water was initially added to it. Note that toilets typically are designed to only flush in one rotation, by having the flush water enter at an angle.
This is less of a puzzle once one remembers that the Earth revolves once per day but that a bathtub takes only seconds to drain. When the water is being drawn towards the drain, the radius with which it is spinning around it decreases, so its rate of rotation increases from the low background level to a noticeable spin in order to conserve its angular momentum (the same effect as ice skaters bringing their arms in to cause them to spin faster). -Wikipedia

Isn't prostitution legal in parts of Nevada?
I'm sure there are just as much sexual predators in Nevada, so I doubt legalizing prostitution would be helpful in THAT matter. But if you talk about the prevention of STDs and safety for those women who actually work that "profession," I think that legalizing prostitution is really not a bad idea.
