Here's some more Netherlands specific data.

www.sharedhope.org...

This doesn't sound fun at all.

BTW I am not picking on the Dutch, its just everyone assumes legal prostitution there is peachy and clean, therefore I think its a good subject to look at for this discussion. Just in my opinion.

This was a worth following thread , a truly complicated issue , i don't beleive that making it legal will make anything better , the man and woman who resort to prostitution will not be trusted by the person whom they want to marry be it legall or illigal , there is a natural need that must be served but at the same time one is at risk of getting some sexually transmited desease in case of resorting to a prostitute to have sex . I don't codemn it but personelly i woudn't feel safe .

I say we make French kissing and holding hands in public illegal because it is gross, almost like a child's early sexual development type of scenario on the playground. So creepy.

And I actually have to witness couples doing this in public unlike prostitution where at least the act everyone pretends to be so offended by takes place behind closed doors.

Like any adult I am willing to mind my own business for the betterment of society. A society in which there are no answers or true reasons to eliminate many of humanities instinctual desires - if we just keep our little pet peeves to ourselves and stop making laws to prevent them.

I would never use a prosty but for heavens sakes why in the world would anybody with half a sense of acting like a team player on this planet care if someone else did. Of all things!

Cant we make it illegal for food chains to throw our day old perfectly edible goods and instead have to donate it to charities? Wouldnt this be a law about a million times more necessary than a law having to do with sex??

I think making prostitution illegal results in laws that clearly do NOT allow for separation of church and state enough.

No thanks but when it comes to anything having to do with penises or vaginas - we dont need laws.

Hun , I am the OP and I never said you or anyone for legalization was in any way wrong. I was simply shedding light on what prostitutes go through these days , and asking a legitimate question. Will making prostitution legal make a difference in the childhood market , or the amount of women that are abused from an early age and groomed for the market ? I could care less what two consenting adults do ...I was asking a social question ..and I believe you are legit in your opinion and haven't done anything wrong.

Legalise prostitution? That would be disastrous. Prostitution should be discouraged and should'nt be given a boost

Prohibition will never work. Where there is demand, there is supply. You can't legislate human behavior and desire no matter how hard you try. It is your body, you have the right to sell it, give it away, put chemicals into it, and to destroy it if you choose. You also have the right to cherish, protect, nourish and love it. Ultimately, we are only responsible for ourselves and our young children.

Hand Job: $25
BJ: $50
Do Anything Package: $100-$1500 (Depending on quality)
Not putting on that condem and catching something you don't want: Priceless!!

Seriously, I personally wouldn't pay for sex, I'm too shy to do so, plus I have a fiannce. I get what I want and visa versa.

I would vote to make it legal since that profession has been around since.......well since right after cavemen stopped beating cave-women over the head and women learned they could make money at it.


I would vote for it because I think it's up to the women (if they are adults) to chose what she wants to do with her body and if a guy has to buy it, that's him, not me. As far as children getting involved to early because of legalizing prostitution everywhere, well that sounds like a parenting issue that needs fixing. If it's the parents forcing their young son or daughter--some one have a gun?

Actually, you DO condemn it twice in your post. You assume that anyone, man or woman who resorts to prostitution will not be trusted by whoever they want to marry. You really mean YOU would not trust them, but it certainly does not go for everyone. You also equate prostitution with sexually transmitted diseases, when the truth is, anyone can protect themselves against STDs or not. Just in case you didn`t know, you can ALSO get STD`s from people who AREN`T prostitutes too!

OP Reaminds me of the documentary called "super high me", where a radio show host asked doug benson if he joined his campaign for legalization of marijuana, if he would be willing to join his campaign for the "MEDICAL" legalization of prostitution.

Cheers. Loved the comedy. We are so serious here on ATS nice to see something comical.

Also what are you talking about there are certain forms of prostitution. lol. All you got to do is film it and call it a porn session.

The majority of STD's are transmitted via straight married males. The research is conclusive.

don't go to prostitutes, but would vote to make it legal. the opposition to it is based in false morality; religion interfering in human affairs once again. I say, if a woman of appropriate age(21?) wants to do this, it's her right. there should be no stigma. god, if people #ed more without shame, there'd be a lot less crime. seriously.

Even if it was legal, do you think people who dont currently pay for sex, would start doing so?


Maybe you need a state paid vacation, after all, you seem to have some deep rooted issues involving prostitutes and women, and that should be evaluated.

Many serial killers single out prostitutes for murder victims. I pray you get help before you hurt someone.

Yeah, that is the BIGGEST loophole ever. If that were the case with other "crimes" like smoking weed, you'd see an explosion of millions of new YouTube videos with people taking monster bong hits in about 2 days.

Plus, if you video tape it you get a free video souvenier to take home with you. LOL

To be serious though, prostitutes gross me out. I just consider them to be dirty and that may not be the case but it certainly destroys any libido I might have just by considering a prostitute. On the other hand I believe in freedom and I don't think it's my place to put my morality or judgement into the mix. What two consenting adults agree to is none of my business.

And I would have no issue with anyone who did support it. I am in the middle. If the people of a state in the majority support it then it should be there right to vote it into law. I don't have to agree with it morally. I just won't particpate in it and handle my affairs as I see fit as all should. Not my place to insist upon others so long as no harm is done to me. There are heaps of things to take into consideration though which is why a state should address those issues in the best interests of it's residents.

"The pimp cannot be blamed", 'he is only doing what he has been taught" oh please. As if there is no other way for these parasitic pimps to have a roof over there heads. The poor pimps just have no other way out in this competitive world. Sympathy for pimps whoulda thought.


If there was not a need for pimps, they would not exist. If there was not a need for prostitutes, they would not exist. Just because you do not see the value, does not mean others do not. The ideal that Man should subdue his sexual desire is one that only exists in the illussion we have created. Behind closed doors and in the dark alleys of our society, those who advocate strongest against the carnal nature of man delight in their own forbidden pleasures. Cope with reality or do not, but the illusion is of your own making.

I hadn't realized until reading these threads just how many men on this site are 'pro-john'.
Of course most of them would be for legalization, that would make it so much easier for the 'johns'.


Why must it be "pro-john"? Why not pro- freedom to do what YOU want to do with YOUR life?


Originally posted by batgirl
They would no longer have to worry about being stigmatized 'themselves', no need to worry about arrest, getting caught, catching a disease and of course the women would be servicing them because they just love and thoroughly enjoy having strange men entering their vaginas for money, so no guilt either.


Are you a prostitute? Have you ever been one? If so, do you believe that you can speak for ALL prostitutes?

Why not let those who DO enjoy it do it?


Originally posted by batgirl
It is kind of shocking to see how many men here think of ALL women as prositutes. The level of antagonism and outright contempt for the female gender in general in some of these posts is mindboggleing.


I can't speak for all men here, but for me, I view ALL women as blessed virgins.


Originally posted by batgirl
It leads me to at least suspect that the 'concern' for the rights and safety of prostitutes here could at least be a
bit of a cover for what is perhaps a more prominant subconscious concern, the rights of the 'john'.


Or as I said, the rights of individuals to interact with one another however they see fit.

With Love,

Your Brother

Who the heck needs sex so bad that they would pay for it...I mean really.

Who knows, who cares
A debate can be made about finding a non professional girl whom wants dinner, movies, presents, etc etc etc just to give it up...the difference is trivial



I have never paid for sex...yet I still get it on at least four or five times a week and I have no steady lady..
I cannot see who would be so desperate that you would need to pay for it.

Not sure if your boasting helps the topic at hand. erm..congratulations? Some people aren't as don juan as you it appears.



If your current partner doesn't do it for you then move on, you know what they...plenty of fish in the sea.
If you need freaky action there is always other people out there with same fetishes...just advertise..I hear that's how they find each other nowadays..or go to some type of party.

I don't disagree with you, but I don't see how trying to get into a relationship will satisfy a immediate urge...again, irrelevant to the topic at hand. (unless the topic at hand is how to judge a set of rules for all of humanity to adopt...and good luck with that if thats what it is)


I will never understand some of my colleagues who pay for this stuff...I mean, they make just as much money as I do..have nice houses, families and such..yet they pay for sex. I have a lady by my side...never paid for..(well maybe a few drinks..depends on where you meet) and I watch these fools shell out thousands of dollars for a night out with a beautiful woman. Then again they are rather unattractive, overweight..etc....
, but with the money they make...they should be able to find some woman willing to sleep with them for free.

With the money they make...why? Do they promise the girls (directly or through innuendo) that prizes will be gained for nooky? See, you scorn prostitution on one hand, then justify it veiled on the other. Interesting irony you have managed to balance for yourself.

Ultimately, you don't understand..thats cool...you don't have to. I don't understand why people do things either, be it binge drinking, gambling, etc...but its their vice, it doesn't harm me or mine, so let them do what they enjoy doing so long as everyone is consenting..and thats really the root of the debate here...people telling other people what they can do in their own bedroom for fun.

That's an opinion held by many people. Now I'll share one of mine...
Fast food is loaded with saturated fat, should be discouraged and should not be given a boost.

As an adult who has learned to keep to myself, I don't need laws against selling fast food. I am able to control my spite.
