The oldest profession known to man and you go all blasphemy on it. There are people that actually choose this line of work. Let them have that choice. Fascism and communism was from the past right...?

Everybody sells his or hers body for money. Usually getting less payed for more hours even...


Like I pointed out before, by its very nature, prostitution can not be the oldest profession know to man. Just one of the oldest.

But other than that....exactly.

I agree OP, people just get their stuff in a bunch concerning anything having to do with sex.

Sometimes I wish I were female just so I could be a prostitute.

Women have it too easy.

Its legal and regulated in New Zealand.


From Wikipedia,
Prostitution (sex work), brothel keeping, living off the proceeds of someone else's prostitution and street solicitation are legal and regulated in New Zealand. Coercion of sex workers is illegal.

Prior to 2003, prostitution in New Zealand was governed by the Massage Parlours Act 1978, which allowed some indoor prostitution under a facade; indoor sex workers were required to be registered with the police. Advertising the sale of sex ("soliciting"), running a brothel, and living from the earnings of prostitution were illegal.

These laws were changed by the Prostitution Reform Act, passed in June 2003. The decriminalisation of brothels, escort agencies and soliciting and substitution of a minimal regulatory model created worldwide interest; New Zealand prostitution laws are now some of the most liberal in the world. (See Prostitution and the law).

Although prior to 2003 New Zealand had several laws meant to suppress prostitution, in practice, during the last decades of the 20th century, there had been a high degree of toleration of sex work. Nevertheless, police continued to raid brothels, streets, and private residences of sex workers right up to the day before the Prostitution Reform Bill was passed by Parliament

Well I've walked around several red light districts and the galls behind the windows even pay taxes here.


Red Light Districts are notoriously crummy areas of town. It really does bring down the property values...


that is all about capitalism man .... another problem

but the city can make those neighborhoods more attractiv no ???

Sex for money is prostitution.... Most women are guilty. No difference between expecting to be taken out to a nice resteraunt, or expecting a few hundred in cash. Just the latter don't dwell on it too much, because they expected pay in something other than cash so it's legal. And they can sit up there on their high horses and look down at people.

Because it is frowned upon in society the first politican that would try to legalize it would probably lose their job.

Prostitution should be legal as it is. As it is here pimping and all organized activity is illegal and that probably eliminates most of the problems associated with prostitution.

As an ex-sailor I can give one reason. Spend 90 days or more out to sea with no release in sight. Paying for it is much better than wasting time trying to pick up some chick who doesn't even speak your language. Dollars are an international language, gladly accepted anywhere in the world.

Nope, my parents were married. Before you judge, you try it. Go 90 days or longer floating around on a gator freighter with no available women. Then pull into a port, any port. I personally have paid for it in 18 countries. Though I admit that this was in the days before aids.

I see only two problems with this. More divorces and More STDS. But I guess that would be the "customers" problem.


I just had an interesting conversation with my daughter this morning. She had just returned from a 5 day dual conference on HIV in B.C. Canada. She was told by a presenter that in the 3rd world countries like countries in Africa, Indonesia etc. the sex worker population is 99% infected with HIV. Although there are many very useful drugs available that prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS they are largly unavailable to the sex workers and are virually illegal in USA.

Until the FDA Okay's some of these drugs, prostitution should remain illegal. IMO No one should HAVE TO die to do a legal job.
