Maybe these guys aren't "looking for love" but rather are looking for a quick romp in the hay?
If someone wants to sell their math skills they are able to do so legally. If someone wants to give fake psychic readings and scam the masses they are legally allowed to do so. Why can someone sell their body to a coal mine or another dangerous industry but we immediately assume those who sell/buy sex are bad people?
I understand the OP's point, but again I am saying not everyone is looking for love. Some people want a no-strings-attached romp. Let em have it.

PROSTITUTION IS AN ILLICIT ACTIVITY! You should be banned for posting about it, and this topic should be removed, as well as the other thread going on right now that this thread is a replica of.
That's what the ATS ToS states anyway.

There are lots of "free" versions of services that you can get. But you also get what you pay for.
90% of the time, "free" services cost you in many other ways. You have to buy beer and hang out with your mechanic friend if you want him to work on your car. It's also expected that you pitch in and help.
You can get your old granny to give you the "old country" remedy for whatever you think is making you sick. You just have to hang out with granny, listen to the stories and possibly get poisoned/sicker from taking that home remedy.
Prostitutes who sell sex because they want to, are professional courteous individuals who like what they do and they like to think they are good at.
They have every right to sell their time and service to who ever is willing to pay for it.
If you are discussing prostitutes who are forced into it because of drug debts, or misogynistic sadistic boyfriends/pimps, or criminal organizations who trick young women into coming to the country illegally and then holding them against their will and forcing them into prostitution, then YES, that should all be stopped.
But if a grown woman happens to think that she is good enough in bed, that she should charge people or that experience, I say more power to her. Or Him.
Prostitution should not be illegal. It should be a regulated, taxed, and inspected legitimate business.
