Side Score: 42

If prostitution were legalized, it could be regulated like any other industry. There would be less death, less abuse, and less diseases such as AIDS and STIs. Prostitution keeps many men (e.g., potential child molesters) out of dangerous situations by allowing them to act out their fantasies. By allowing the legalization of prostitution, prostitution 'licenses,' et cetera, a profitable industry could be born... also helping the economy. :)

Here in Australia it is legalized , but you must have an ABN and also pay tax. A lot do still work "off the book" , in legal establishments , simply because they feel their goodies are taxed enough.And also because the establishments get a cut.The usual split is 60/40 in the workers favour. However there is a few that try to take advantage of people in need of quick cash.And of course this is why a lot still work off the street or wherever.WHICH IS HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED! All claim to be drug free establishments , however this is just to keep the heat off the establishment , and many drugs are ready in house for the workers to use or to have with a popular client. There is a lot that are run by women who are a lot like the men who run them , very little real concern for the workers and only out to make money off your body. We also have The Sex Workers Outreach Project or SWOP for short. They have outlets where you can have free anonymous sexual health checkups. Although this is ussually a pre-requsite to joining an establishment , most do not enforce it (health check) which really should be , as it is vital in helping avoid the spread of deseases etc. We also have reps from SWOP who will go to any establishment that requests education on safety in regards to sex work and its extentions , which are many. At these outlets they give not only free health checks and advice but also give out free packs of condoms , lube etc.

I could talk about this industry forever.......I know heaps of insider details , but i would be here forever ,stuck on my computer.

So i will end with saying that every year here in Aus , Prostitutes have raised so much money for charities and causes , and will even raise money to assist an individual child get an op that is direly needed , so leave these valuable people do there job OF CHOICE.

Human Trafficking is not prostitution , it is a CRIME. So i hope people can differentiate .

child molesters aren't looking for grown women. There are married child molesters, and they obviously dont want to stay at home. And legalized prostitution would only advertise these sins as if they were a good thing. It may be good to the economy but we would be without restraints and morals.

Child molesters, molest children because grown women won't consent. If they could get a women they wouldn't have to resort to children. married men molest children because often they aren't "getting any" from their wives.

There is a strong positive correlation between sexual repression and rape. Places with greater sexual freedom have much lower rates of rape and molestation.

Prostitution, the world's oldest profession has been around for a very long time and it's not going anywhere soon. It happens and nothing we do is going to stop it from happening. So we have two options:

>>Let it happen in streets and dirty motels

or

>>Let it happen in a clinic or bordello.

I would be all for because a lot of them do it because they have no where else to turn to well they think they don't and they do it to feed their kids. but at the same time it's horrible and they should find a better way.

Prostitution can bring much added revenue through State controlled houses of prostitution.

Prostitution should only be made illagal if all other forms of labor and tedium are also made illagal... so I'm slightly torn on this argument, but I'll fall on the side that MAXIMIZES FREEDOM. Lagalize this and all other victim-less consensual "crimes." and I'll get one more in while I'm at it - lagal.

People get lonely, They suffer from the effect of the society we live in, that makes it hard to meet people,

im sure a huge customer base are deviates, but some people just need some contact. If they are finding it in the wrong places thats entirely up to them

it shouldn't be beacuse if the prostitutes want to quit being hurt, they should quit prostituting. I dont condone violence, but i do condone the use of common sense. But, maybe the legalizing of a few more brothels far away from where i live, would be better. Prostitution has been around so long, i doubt it would end. But, at least keep it behind closed doors.

"it shouldn't be beacuse if the prostitutes want to quit being hurt, they should quit prostituting."

- some of them love it.

"I dont condone violence, but i do condone the use of common sense."

-w/e thats supposed to mean.

"But, maybe the legalizing of a few more brothels far away from where i live, would be better."

-They should only be in industrial areas ,and should be kept Away from schools and childrens zones , and out of suburbs where people live.

"Prostitution has been around so long, i doubt it would end."

-correct, So use common sense and put control on the situation by legalizing it.

"But, at least keep it behind closed doors."

- oh so keep it behind closed doors but dont legalize it ?

-sweep it under the carpet ? but dont legalise it

-closet case the bad case scenarios ? , (the ones that otherwise might be caught out and dealt with) , but dont legalize prostitution ?

-What happened to your common sense?
