As with anything, it will be illegal if the Government cannot tax it. Thats the world we live in. Do I want prostitution legal? I mean, do I really care? I honestly dont care what another person does with their body and neither should the Government. You do not live in a free nation when the Government tells you what you can or cannot do with your own body. Its kinda like the Government telling you what you can or cannot put in your own body and throwing you in a cage when you dont listen. Its called a dictatorship (comes from the word dictate), and this whole idea that things are illegal because your Government loves you needs to stop. Grow up people.

Yep this is all this thread is about...men who feel that woman are nothing more than objects there to purchase.
Disgusting pathetic men...who pay for sex with females who otherwise would have nothing to do them.

Why this is even an issue...I have no idea.


Men also work in prostitution, albeit in smaller numbers. Take away any religious moralising and let's deal with the thing itself.

I would vote for legality and for free health checks for any prostitute female or male.

In my opinion, if everyone's over the legal age to make decisions about what they want to do with their body, whether it's sex/drugs/other, then let them do it. Prostitution is a victim-less crime if both parties are consenting adults.

I have always been on the fence about this one. So many ethical, moral and social implications to consider. I am not against it and not for it. Just kind of in the middle. I don't think that it should be regulated for or against so I am in agreement with you there. But then where I stand is no solid answer to existing problems mentioned either.

So then the taxpayers are burdened with that FREE healthcare? That's an issue with society. I support the idea but paying for it and all that is not something I care to do. I don't pay women to sleep with me so why would I want to pay for there free health care to sleep with others for money.

Would we all generally agree that many of the girls who are working the streets do it because they are on drugs?

Do we all agree that it is likely that if prostitution were made legal, then the healthchecks would likely include a drug test (given the close relationship between drug use and health)?


It follows that the drug test would likely then exclude the majority of these women from prostituting themselves 'legally'.

The healthcare itself would push up the price of a trick - potentially making only unregulated prostitution affordable for many.

The problem doesnt go away with regulating it.

Many people talk about prostitution being a choice between two 'consenting adults'.

For me, it isnt really 'consent' if the choice on the part of the prostitute to have sex with another 'consenting adult' who just happens to have dineros has been made out of financial desperation.

I don't think prostitutes want it legalized. Most of them very easily are able to find clients online without being arrested, but most importantly, without paying taxes. Also, some of these people like for it to remain on the down low. If its legal, it will get on their record, hurting them in the future when they are job hunting. Quite a few people only do this every now and then when they find a rich person that will pay around $5000+ a session. I have a friend that got paid $5000 to have sex with Prince Frederic von Anhalt. He saw him in a chatroom and offered him that much because he was European and cute, lol. For those that are curious, that's his type, blonde Europeans. He's going to college and works as a bank teller. I'd say he's a typical prostitute. Most are 18-25 and just doing it to make a little extra money to pay for college. People like them definitely don't want it legalized because that would mean paying taxes on it and it would get on their record.

I think it should be legal so deprived individuals can get their jollies instead of raping and killing women.

legalizing also allows the government to collect taxes and do periodic health inspections on the prostitues.

This will also make it easier for the women to get out of the violence from the pimps.

Furthermore, this will keep our jails/prisons from filling up with hookers and pimps.

I have a solution.

Bust the men and help the ladies?


Any man that shags a child (NO 12 year old can look "old enough"), needs to have his skull crushed.

I am sorry. And I regret that you found agreement with me. This is one of those posts i was talking about. "Dirty, disgusting men"?

I think you entirely missed the point.

I have never paid for a prostitute myself but I would vote to make it legal for sure.
If a woman can use the tools that god gave her to make a living, then I say go for it if she wants!
If a guy has excess cash and a hankerin for a yankerin, and he has a willing seller, go for it!
Now the only prob is the Gumment will get into this venture and gum up the works as they always do.
Funny in Kalifornia we tax parts but not services, in Nevada I guess they tax service but not parts.

"Wow...you are one pathetic human being"...

"I see your hatred for women comes from constant rejection from the opposite sex, now you would rather pay for sex with woman".

___________________

why is he pathetic?...all men "pay" for sex...one way or another,

it has become a pre-requisite expectation of women today, that men have to spend money on them first,

so all sex has been turned into prostitution. because it always involves $$$ spent on her,"any woman" in some way shape or form. wether it be buying her,"any woman" dinner first,taking her."any woman" to a movie first,helping her,"any woman" with rent,helping her,"any woman" with car insurance,buying her,"any woman" jewelry and flowers...the guy "will have spend money" on any woman, first...then..."she might"...have sex with him later...

the guy with the fattest wallet and the shinniest sports car gets the hottest women...it's damn sad, but very true...

money has ruined everything in this world and it has turned us against eachother and it is the reason for most of the crime and violence as well...

I keep seeing the point about how men treat all women as sexual objects that can be paid for. However, this point is irrelevant to the topic at hand - unforced prostitution. In the case of unforced prostitution, the woman is inviting the customer to pay for her body.

There have been plenty of times where I have "sold my soul" by getting in my car to join the rat race and working for a company I despised, just to bring home the money to pay for the basics. That is also mentally torturing but I don't see anybody sticking up for me. I wouldn't expect it either because all along I had the choice to get out (albeit a nerve racking, "where will I get the money if I leave this hell" type of choice). One company I worked for that I am mentally scarred from was Washington Mutual (come get your ice cold second mortgages here!!).

Anyway, what is really going on is this...
For some reason, about 1/4 of the woman population feel the need to try and convince the world through repetition that no woman ever wants to have sex just for fun. This simply isnt even remotely true.

Like someone said earlier. A few immature woman who are infatuated with overly sappy, soft core porn (i.e Soap Operas, movies with Bette Middler or anybody from the sitcom friends, etc) are the ones who just cant stand the fact that not all people like their sex to begin with a peck to the cheek or a poem about the woman's inner beauty either.

Relationships aren't for everyone. You gotta let people do what they want. Especially in the area of sex where it should be private in the first place.

Rape is of course an entirely different topic and should be illegal.

There are many issues to cover when it comes to this topic.The good points tho will allways out weigh the bad, like sd checks aid checks,tax and safe conditions for the woman and men also an age limit.Bad points there will be underground sex which is disgusting even if it is legal just like drugs if you start on something light theres a high chance you will end on heavy drugs not that all do mind you also there would be more brothels around and were do they draw the line will it only be allowed in commercial shoping districts or will they be poping up rite next door to you in your street. ? I for one agree on makeing it legal just because evidently it means safty for the woman and men who do it.

Oh yes, and their are so many men on this thread who have spoken so wonderfully about women and with
such respect.

There are so many men who do not even give a thought as to how the over sexualization of women affect
women and girls until they have their own daughters. Then they become afraid about how their daughters
are gonna be used as they get older. At that point they become protective, cus they don't want to see their
daughters hurt. They may even start to think about how they have used women in the past. Women who
were someone else's daughter.

To pay a woman to have sex with you is to use another human being for your own selfish gratification. If it makes
a woman a whore then what does it make the man.

There are too many men in my neck of the woods, usually old ugly men who see a young girl in desperate need , a runaway fleeing a bad home situation, then the older man kindly takes her in, gives her a roof over her
head and food for her belly but only in return for sex. Never out of the goodness of their hearts, to genuinely
help a desparate, young, troubled individual. It makes me sick.

Legal or illegal it is not victimless. There are no easy answers. There needs to be more done to get young
troubled girls off the street immediately and into a SAFE situation. So the young girl on the street eventually' becomes an old girl on the streets, if she survives that long and then she becomes a "consenting adult'.

This is not always the case but it often is. Whether if it is legal or illegal there is somthing degrading about
allowing strangers into your vagina for money. This isn't a disparagement on the girls who do this because
of bad circumstances. The truth is usually when a man goes to pay a girl for sex, he doesn't know what
her situation is, nor probably does he care. That is what is sad.
