    If it's her choice there is nothing demeaning about it. As far as sex goes, women have a definite advantage in my opinion. Most men are easily led, controlled and manipulated by sex. I see nothing wrong with a woman utilizing this to its full potential if it is her choice to do so. Why do you insist on characterizing men who go to prostitutes in the most stereotypical way possible?

    It's obvious you don't get it. I won't say anything more on the matter, the idea of Prostitution can only be argued by those lacking in even the most basic common sense and morality.

    I'm dismissed.
    I don't think it's an issue of common sense or morality really. If it is against your moral code, don't engage in it. It's that simple. Not everyone sees things the way you do and should have the right to do so if they feel like doing so. As long as consenting adults are involved there's nothing wrong with it, in my opinion.

    It's interesting that we're talking about legalization of prostitution in San Fransisco and most are assuming that the prostitutes are females.

    And a stupid, indefensible definition of morality at that. Whenever the actions of consenting adults which do not hurt anyone else are banned on "moral" grounds it usually involves citing obscure passages of ancient holy books.

    Have any of you guys been to Amsterdam its like Disney world had a red light district.If your a guy with your mates people follow you down the street asking you to by cocaine asking you if ya wanna buy cocaine.

    As for the prostitutes alot of them are African and eastern european women who have often been tricked into coming.Some are also illegal immigrants but the liberal laws dont act against that so well.However their pimps and these guys are pimps can chuck them out in which case whats is the girl suppose to do with nowhere to live.I know in the perfect world its just 2 consenting adults but it isnt gonna cut the abuse.

    Well, I also think there are some very serious differences between our culture and the culture in Amsterdam. If you look at the brothels in Nevada they aren't seedy like that at all. It is a professional business and the women are there completely by choice.

    Legalizing it, setting up brothels and taxing them would cost a hell of a lot less then waging another silly moral war on it where we try to fight it everywhere. Keep hooking illegals. Make brothels in every state.

    Every day we get more and more accepting of sleazy behavior.

    Legalizing prostitution will attract people who would never do it if it were illegal.

    How you equate prostitution to murder and drug abuse is beyond me.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
