    At the time they were codified. That is not subjective.
    Those standards have been eroded by this decision, have they not?

    It is stating a fact.
    Don't read into, or assume anything by that.
    Further erosion of what? your utopic society?

    You have to realize, I worked for many years in the "Adult Entertainment Industry". And while I do not think it should be outlawed, I also do not believe things should be a free-for-all either.

    This removal of all restrictions makes Canada almost sound like a Libertarian Paradise. 16 year old girl prostitution herself to a 16 year old boy, why not? Hookers setting up at bus stops, what the heck, why not? No restrictions after all.

    Now what they should have done if they were smart was to overthrow parts, pending revision of current laws. Throwing out all restrictions is simple insanity.

    At "the" time they were "codified?"

    When was this, and where can I find them written?

    I think it should be done like Amsterdam, a zoned area, health checks mandatory, and ensure that it is all adults.

    I actually have no problem with that. Although I think it would be better if they followed the Nevada model (rural areas, zoned farmland or industrial, regulated).

    Simply throwing out all regulations is never a smart idea. And I bet there will be a lot of predation until the new rules are enacted and put into place.

    No, we don't.

    Are nude magazines OK? Movies? Sexual Devices (remember, cucumbers), R rated films? Double entendre' jokes on sitcoms? Selling condoms? Lacy Underalls? (Caddyshack reference).

    Where does your particular level of values that you want to impose stop? What are the limits? For example, in my state, there is an actual law that women can only own 2 sexual devices (LDS legislator...). I want some specifics so I am sure not to break any law by having any un pure thoughts.

    You already know what the erosion was of. Especially as it was already stated.

    It has been stated.
    Go back to the OP and read it is you do not understand that which is obvious.
