    The sooner this is done the better.
    However while legalizing Prostitution is ok, it should be done in such a way that it is controlled much the same way that the Netherlands control Prostitution over there.

    Anyone who has ever walked into the Nob Hill Theater knows prostitution is already legal in San Francisco. Or at least the anti prostitution laws are not enforced at all.

    As long as there are STRICT enforcement on the laws. I know, San Francisco, I doubt that will happen, but still. Even when it is criminalized, there is still a lot of prostitution that isn't just "normal" prostitution if you know what I mean....

    Yeah they're doing a find job of it in the Netherlands.

    The Netherlands is a primary country of destination for victims of human trafficking. Many of these are led to believe by organized criminals that they are being offered work in hotels or restaurants or in child care and are forced into prostitution with the threat or actual use of violence. Estimates of the number of victims vary from 1000 to 7000 on a yearly basis.Most police investigations on human trafficking concern legal sex businesses. All sectors of prostitution are well represented in these investigations, but particularly the window brothels are overrepresented.[7][8]

    Over the years there has been a significant increase of registered Dutch victims of human trafficking. In 2005 23% of the persons registered at the Dutch Foundation Against Trafficking in Women were Dutch citizens.

    In an effort to crack down on forced prostitution, a campaignldmisdaadanoniem.districts encouraging clients to report signs of coercion. The poster has an eyecatching silhouette of a spike-heeled prostitute with long hair leaning back, but on closer inspection another picture reveals a gun being held to the female's head. The caption reads "Have you seen the signals? Fear, bruises, no 'pleasure' in the job." It then goes on to offer a phone number which clients can call anonymously.

    It's about time. Criminalizing what two consenting adults do sexually, for money or not, is not about protecting society; it's about punishing people based on one segment of society's definition of morality.

    I say decriminalize it, regulate it like any other business, and we'll probably find that not only is a lot of lot enforcement time freed up, but instances of sexually transmitted disease will decrease substantially.

    Oh, and prostitution is NOT human trafficking. Kidnapping people, holding them against their will and forcing them to do anything, either sexual or in a manufacturing sweat shop, will still be illegal.
