Well vote and talk amongst yourselves. Why or why not? Fundies and Nanny-state advocates feel free to add to the debate.

I say legal. No morality police. Less crime, since peoples perversions have an outlet. Disease a concern though.

Legal everywhere. Consenting adults exchanging things of value for other things/services of value to be negotiated before services are rendered. If I can hire someone to mow my lawn, I should be able to hire a woman to give me a hummer.

Legalize it, don't criticize it.

Legal everywhere. The women ain't going to like it, but that means less control for them.
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 9:40:06 PM EDT
it should be legalized

Legal as long as they get checked out by doctors regular to be sure they are disease free. I wouldn't use them but believe it should be legal.

How often though? Weekly? How many guys does a good hooker flip in a day? I have never been to vegas.

Should be up to the state at a minimum, and ideally decided upon as locally as possible. Some towns want it, some don't. I could care less either way.

That is primarily a problem where prostitution is illegal. If there were licensed brothels, the vast majority of them would not be on the streets.

Of course not. Use it or don't use it I am pretty sure most do not want brothels in most areas. You can also concentrate police presence in RLDs too. It would not be like gun shops and fried chicken stands in the hood.

No, it is not everywhere. It is in a specifically zoned area so it doesn't cause a problem for residential areas. That's what regulation and real control does.

I said nationally not everywhere, that was MoparMike. I would presume the freedom loving type would know in some capacity what a red light district is or at the least how brothels are generally handled socially.

Although I have no problem with prostitution being legalized, the vast majority of them would still be on the streets. Most prostitutes are crack ho's and others of their ilk and any kind of medical standard at all would keep them from a brothel. They stay awake 23 hours a day going from one blow job to the next in order to support their habit. While the thought of a legalized brothel might seem great, 98% of the prostitutes would still be out on the streets.

Yep Wolfman97 nailed it. The brothel ho will likely be cleaner and less likely to be disease ridden. Furthermore I would not stick any part of me in a crackwhore, that is rolling the dice too much I want some protections.

To quote Carlin:

"Is selling legal? Yes.
Is fucking legal? Yes.
So why isn't selling fucking legal?
Why should it be illegal to sell something that's perfectly ok to give away for free?"

A shit load of prostitution goes on everyday in neighbor hoods you would never suspect.

Massage girls, private underware models, cleaning services and of course ,call girls.


You never know what's going on at your neighbors house while you're at work.

for all intents and purposes, it is legal. the key is in they way the transaction is handled. it is very difficult to prove money for sex if done correctly. of course there are people who are stupid about the way they do it and get popped for their stupidity.

I don't know about you, but I didn't interpret "everywhere" as meaning every street corner and schoolyard. More like in properly zoned areas, like any other business.

Many people see abortion as murder. I'm pretty sure prostitution doesn't equal muder to most logical people (except to some fundies maybe).

If the question asked was "Should muder be legal if I have a good reason?" and most people voted "yes" than I can see your line of reasoning about abortion.


Oh, and yes prostitution should be legal.

Legal prostitution will save American millions of dollars, instead of wasting all that dough on dressing nice, learning to dance, and buying expensive drinks all night in hope of nailing a broad, guys will just spend $20 and get it over with.
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 11:42:37 PM EDT
It's not going to make a difference either way. Doesn't affect me, because I'd never hire a prostitute. They're always going to be there as long as there is a demand for sex in exchange for money.
Link Posted: 1/24/2006 11:49:16 PM EDT
[carlin]Selling is legal, fucking is legal. Why isn't selling fucking legal?![/carlin]

I'm ok with prostitution, it's the crime brought with it that I'm against, ie pimps and fights etc. If people would do business the right way, no one would have a problem, and no harm no foul.
