Lets be honest.
Quite often, dating leads to intercourse. When you date someone, you pay for gifts, things, food, etc...and in exchange get to have sex with the person.
Not always, but often enough to where it should be looked at.
This is Prostitution...giving money or gifts in exchange for the expectation of sex.
I think that since there is such a good reason why prostitution is illegal in most states, it is also logical we should also make dating, and other material or monetary exchanges that are leading towards intercourse (buying a drink at a bar as an example) be held to the same level of morality.
Lets call our local statesman and demand they put an end to this immortality that permeates every aspect of our society!
Are you with me?
If not, why not? Do you also believe people should be able to prostitute themselves directly verses skip the pretense if not?
P.S.: Don't spend your post judging me..instead, speak your mind about your thoughts and values either for or against..and try to be logical about it. You don't know me, but the topic is valid for discussion and comparison. May not be a exact match, but there is plenty that will have sex with a person for rent money, cars, gifts, etc.

When you date someone you pay for gifts, food, and clothing as part of growing in a relationship with him or her.
There is much more value to not only investing the money but the time which is a display of affection for someone you are attracted to.
To say that prostitution and courting are synonymous would be saying that prostitution is a healthy, edifying behavior?
Sorry but that prostitute is someone's daughter and I sure would not want to see my own daughters selling themselves to pathetic bottomfeeders who cant figure out how to have a successful relationship.

There are still people in the world who don't put out for a good long while (although probably few), so dating doesn't equal prostitution.

What are you recommending instead?
Sometimes they would give me flowers....sometimes I would buy them flowers...(yes some men like getting flowers too!).
