I'm surprised that some of you are really going to the extent of suggesting that sexual frustration in men leads them to rape. REALLY? Rape is
committed as an act of control. A horny man whose wife is refusing to give it up does not fit the profile of a rapist.
As a former police officer, I am quite aware of the troubled past of most of the prostitutes who work the streets. Yes, most of them have been abused
throughout their lives and they have no self-esteem. They turn to prostitution and use illegal drugs to numb their emotional pain. One thing I can
tell you for sure, however, is that arresting them for prostitution doesn't change anything and neither does arresting their "johns" for
Certainly there should be laws that protect underage girls from being used as prostitutes and laws against women being forced to work as sex slaves,
but grown women who are choosing to be prostitutes and men who are paying for their services are making a personal choice. That choice may not be
healthy for them in the long run, but it is their choice. It is not our place to impose laws upon their of sexual behavior.
It maybe slightly off topic, but I'd like to add the following...
Demonizing men because they choose to pay a woman to have sex with them is just an ridiculous as saying their wives/girlfriends are at fault because
they don't give their men enough sex. Humans, just like any other living thing, desire to be free. Yet, once again, humanity managed to create
"moral guidelines" through verbal and legal "contracts" like marriage that force people to make promises to another person of indefinite
commitment. How can you know for sure what your feelings for one person are going to be like five or ten years from now? We set ourselves up to
fail in this way, and then we act shocked when one half of a relationship doesn't stick to the "contract."
Many will disagree with me, but our desire to "guarantee" our future security and happiness by requiring another person to commit themselves to us
indefinitely goes against a human's desire to be free. I think this explains not only the high divorce rates, but sexual frustration that causes
people to seek sex outside of a relationship, which sometimes comes in the form of men seeking a prostitute.
