Isn't someone being an "escort" already a legal form of prostitution?

There are escort services, which are legal, all over and these people perform "services" for money.


No, those are still illegal, but the police force is far too inadequate to begin to tackle all those advertisements.

He seemed to be against it, then the Bunny Ranch girls changed his mind, the prosecuting attorney offended him, and at the end of his show he said, "Let's get rid of these laws!"

Deep inside we all know this is wrong...we are forgetting the most precious values, that we gain/construct since our childhood

we need to pursuit love not money.

What do love and sex have to do with each other? I love my mother dearly, but I don't want to have sex with her. I've had terrific sex with others that I could barely stand to be around. ONLY the sex was good, no chance of love, but the sex was great repeatedly for months or years!

Connecting Sex and Love is a huge mistake. We love our daughters but we don't love our daughters, how sick is that? The thing that we should instinctively know is wrong is connecting a spiritual feeling to a physical one. Love is a spiritual feeling based on tons of things that are NOT SEX. Sex is a purely carnal and physical thing based in reproductive instincts.

I disagree.

Yes...having a choice without others looking down on you for the decisions YOU make that pertain to your life and lifestyle.




we need to pursuit love not money.


That is your choice and you have the right to have that choice,why is it different if someone chooses to do what works for them??

Some women like money...I like women....no harm no foul.

Thank You.


If an Adult, wants to become a Prostitute, I have to say, its up to them. But, legalizing Prostitution,has its drawbacks. Their will ALWAYS be Pimps. Their will always be someone making money, off of those who become a Prostitute. It sounds to me, that the UN didnt do their work, and really didnt take under consideration, Children, Religion,etc.......

And just some sobering statistics to the Sex Industry.


In another study performed by the Sexual Abuse Recovery Program, a service designed to provide nationwide, 24-hour support to victims of sexual abuse located in Southern Wisconsin, specialists in the fields of alcohol and drug addiction estimated that up to 90 percent of the patients they encounter have known histories of some form of sexual abuse.



According to University of Pennsylvania psychologist Mary Anne Layden, in a statement published by the obscenity crime organization Morality in Media, between 60 and 80 percent of nude dancers were raped or sexually abused as children.



Another study by the American Sociological Association, published in its Journal of Health and Social Behavior, found that 35 percent of strippers have Multiple Personality Disorder, 60 percent had major depressive episodes and 55 percent have Borderline Personality Disorder.



According to a 2001 study done by the University of Pennsylvania, women who work in the sex industry have only a 25 percent chance of making a marriage that will last as long as three years.


Strip it Down

I dont know if this was taken into consideration, with their decision.

Not sure if that was a sarcastic reply, but yes. Quality is important. People are engaging in the solicitation of sex, whether it's legal or not. And since it's overwhelmingly NOT, why not legalize it everywhere and with that, improve the quality? Better looking women = more business = more money. And I believe it's a business that could drastically improve the economy.

EDIT: Also I believe legalizing prostitution could decrease sexual assault nationally. People say, "Rape isn't about sex, it's about control/domination!" That is plain wrong. It's sex. There are plenty of ways to dominate or control somebody that don't involve sex, but rapists choose to commit a SEXUAL crime. Why? Has any serial rapist ever turned out to be a successful man who gets plenty of (you know what) in his personal life? Not that I have ever heard. Why not offer sexually deprived men a legal and safe avenue for their appetites?

100% of the women I know have been molested, abused, or raped, and only 1 or 2 of them have ever reported it to authorities. None of them work in the Sex Industry. A couple have very significant careers, a couple are housewives, a couple work regular jobs and have regular families.

(For the record, women often talk to me openly about sex, because I talk openly about it, and I am easy to approach and trustworthy. I hear things that not a lot of people men get to hear.)

This is a testament to a couple of entirely different topics in my opinion.

#1. The current paradigm is NOT WORKING. Demonizing the sex trade, hiding sex from the public eye, not talking about it openly, repressing the natural affinity for sex, while at the same time sexualizing everything in the media and entertainment industry is complete poison to our society.

#2. The definitions of sex abuse, molestation, and rape are somewhat skewed so that all women feel like they have been victimized, because the definition is so broad, that by the generalized definition, they have been victimized, but in reality there were no lasting effects, and not real harm done.

The levels of abuse range from a family friend hugging them a little too long and being a little too handsy, to waking up at a friends house to someone either touching them, or touching themselves. to step-dads demanding sex before they could use the car, to flat out violent rape at parties, or by acquaintances. The stories are bold, and staggering, and unbelievable, and even more unbelievable that the police were never contacted in almost all the cases.

BUT, none of these things have anything to do with legalizing prostitution, EXCEPT, maybe if prostitution was legal, and rape was illegal, then perhaps these offenders would choose prostitution instead of rape.

Don't get married and cheat than.
If someone makes that choice to get married and than make the choice to go see a prostitute....its their fault based on the decisions they made.
Its on them...not me.
Don't tread on me,I didn't make those decisions....they did.

And what better way "to give" than to offer up one's very body for mutual consideration?

And I do fully understand love. You can check out my views on spirituality all over ATS.

I still don't understand what that has to do with sex? We are hear in this existence to experience all that it has to offer, elation, sorrow, pain, even sex.

we all have wright to agree/disagree .

I hope that the society i live in doesn't walk this path. And if it goes like that, I will accept the change, but i know that it will be in the wrong direction.

What do you mean IF rape was illegal?!?
Please educate yourself.
Rape isn't about sex. It's about power and control.

I've heard that tired explanation, even from the experts a million times. Sometimes sex is about power and control. Sometimes relationships are about power and control. Sometimes employer situations are about power and control.

The fact is, "rape" by definition, is about sex.

I actually know a few Prostitutes. The Only reason, they do it, is for the Money. Ive asked them all if they would want their daughters doing it. ALL of them have said No. In reality, the Bottom line IS this.


Wife or whore?




Yet according to data assembled from a wide variety of times and places, ranging from mid-15th-century France to Malaysia of the late 1990s, prostitutes make more money--in some cases, a lot more money--than do working girls who, well, work for a living. This held true even for places where prostitution is legal and relatively safe. In short, streetwalkers aren't necessarily being paid more for their increased risk of going to jail or the hospital.

The only reason I go to work is the money too. I wouldn't be doing it if they didn't pay me. And my work is sometimes fun, sometimes disgusting, and it doesn't pay nearly the hourly rate that prostitution pays.

We're all prostitutes in that regard.

They pay me for my time, to do their will and bidding. Its up to me whether I enjoy or not, and whether I continue to do it or not. And I work for the government, in comparison to prostitution, I'm a street walker, not a Bunny Ranch.
