God Almighty......

sex traffickers would be celebrating about now




Sex traffickers are celebrating already. Legalizing the trade will get the criminal element out of it, and get legitimate business and oversight involved. Look at the gambling, and the prostitution in Nevada. The situation improved dramatically after it was legalized.



That's a good point. Along a similar line look at the liquor business. Look at what happened during prohibition and after it. The number of moonshiners left is very small and you don't hear of people going blind from bad booze anymore.

The vast majority of the people who actually have their orifices penetrated for someone's profit are the underclass. They are often not legal citizens where they work, and sometimes don't even speak the language of their "host" country. They are often young, uneducated, penniless and starving; with no real alternatives.



Well, first of all, that kind of dirty talk really turns my wife on, and she is an upper-middle class, well-adjusted, white, citizen, with a great family life.


BUT, more importantly, did you not recently hear of the "octomom" getting off welfare due to her career in stripping and making porn movies? Legal employment earning her over $100k per year, and not hurting anybody.

In addition, there are the success stories of many ex-porn stars that have created business empires started by their starring roles and money earned.

Don't you know every stripper and prostitute is really a law student paying their way through college, or don't you talk to yours?

But how many of them die due to alcohol every year?
Not to mention other damage in terms of money and/or services (insurance). And perhaps due to widespread obesity, half of the jobs will be outsourced

If it is in the works, they're going to pollute it with chemicals like they've done to tobacco.

The only way I'd like to see it legalized is if everyone could keep one or two plants for their own use. I would not be buying what the gubbermint is selling.

In regards to prostitution, I never understood it. The way morals have degraded, can't most men find a woman these days who will do it for free? I guess the men who will pay for sex just can't get laid by attractive women? Someone should tell these guys that paper bags are usually free and biodegradable.

With the number of obesity at its high, it might be difficult to fill the million jobs

Had Prostitution never been criminilized, we would not have these problems.
Let me ask a question which was asked in another post maybe a year ago on the same subject. What if any of your children(if you have any) would aspire to join this legalized industry as they're growing up through their high school/college years? Would it be ok with you?

I hear you, but what else are college grads supposed to do when there's no jobs and they have to start paying their huge loans back?

That is an immature and unsophisticated look at it.

I've gladly paid for sex many times, and I've also been lucky to have plenty of access to it from women I actually cared about, or women just looking for the same good time I was. Each of those 3 things were significantly different circumstances for significantly different reasons, even if they all happened in a close proximity of time.

I can go home and make some homemade ice cream tonight, but it might take some effort, and I'm not sure I really want it that bad, and even if I did, it might not be exactly what I'm craving, but if I go to the supermarket and there are 1000 flavors there for a reasonable price, then I just take exactly what I want and enjoy it without all the effort and mess.


And, in the end, don't us men always pay for it? Dinner and a movie is $100, and there is no guarantee that you'll like the dinner, like the movie, get the sex, or like it if you do. BUT, for the same $100, you can get some pretty good sex, and have the rest of your evening to hang out with your buddies, or play poker online, LOL!

There is nothing wrong with prostitution, as long as it is not forced labor, or human trafficking, violent, or drug-induced. If it is two willing partners who agree upon a price, then it is no different than getting a haircut. In fact, I think I've had barbers that were more intimate, and pryed into my personal life deeper than a good prostitute.

Ah, I'm on the fence about nothing being "wrong" about it. The very act of legalizing it re-norms the standard. It causes people to do things they otherwise might not if it was illegal. How many families are broken up because a guy couldn't stick it in his wife only


This is one of those issues that I don't have a clear answer for. I was originally way against prostitution years ago, but now see it from too many angles to say much about it. Same goes for gambling. It's a net zero game, meaning you're taking away from someone else in order to win, and even then the casino is still the biggest parasite of it all. How many families are broken up because this game is allowed to flourish legally??

No, I don't believe I'm looking at it simplistically at all. I'm not a man though, so that's probably where the speed bump is here.

Most men that I've met pay for what they can't get, which is usually an attractive woman or some sort of sexual fantasy such as two women. I don't personally know any respectable man that would pay for sex. Most men I know are gentlemen who have a "girl friend/no strings attached" they can indulge with or get together with Palmala Handerson.

That wouldn't be a problem with the business of prostitution, but more a problem of jealousy in a relationship, or a man making a promise he can't keep. Some couples might enjoy hiring a prostitute together, or some relationships might not be built upon fairytales in the first place.

If a family is broken up, it isn't over sex, it is over dishonesty, co-dependency, and unrealistic expectations from the get-go.

I am a very simple guy who lives by this rule.
I don't date....life is simple and alot of women are too complicated to suit my simple lifestyle.
No calls,no just dropped in,no why didn't you call me etc etc.

That is because they are not being honest with you, because they realize your point of view has the word "respectable" in it. If the respectable men in your life were talking to you the way they talk to their male buddies, your outlook would be entirely different.

Look at the "respectable" men like Bill Clinton, John Edwards, etc. The lie might last for decades, or might not ever be revealed, but everyone has secrets. EVERYONE.

Good for you!


Seriously, I have known some very sophisticated and intelligent women that were strippers or call girls, and eventually went on to become lawyers, politicians, business owners, sportscasters, etc.

Unfortunately I have also known a few that went on to become criminals or drug-addicts.

The problem isn't the sex business, it is the backstories of the women who sometimes gravitate towards it. I have also known doctors and lawyers that eventually became criminals and drug-addicts. Some people are just wound too tight, or screwed up from the very start.

I appreciate your honesty.
I have the same outlook as you, but I've patiently waited and have finally found a man who fits my lifestyle. It was such a long, long wait though. Best of luck with your endeavour. It seems as though people in general just keep getting more and more selfish as the years go by. Nobody wants to ever come to a compromise and I feel that TV is brainwashing people, especially women, into believing that being a drama queen is the way to go. Yet, at the same time, it boggles my mind to see so many men staying with biatches and drama queens. SMH.

I'm not saying prostitution is pure evil, or that no good comes from it, but think that anyone who takes an honest view of it can see it leads to a degeneration of society over time. I would agree that ultimately the problem lies in the mind, but also see that the solution lies in the laws which disincentives the acts from occurring.


If a family is broken up, it isn't over sex, it is over dishonesty, co-dependency, and unrealistic expectations from the get-go.


It may be both. You are choosing to focus on the qualities of mind which bring about the act which would lead to the breakup, but it's all happening together in the scenario I'm positing.

The wisdom, knowledge, patience, tactics
comes with time. Nothing is easy in life including relationships. One has to work towards it. Walking away from it is not a solution. It might seem feasible at a younger age.
