    You're right, they don't. That's what laws are for.

    The bolded portion of this statement is your subjective moral opinion, which you are attempting to impose upon others by restricting them from using lawful means to discourage undesired behavior. I do not disapprove of this action on your part, save that I disagree with the specific moral standards that you are attempting to impose-- that is, the standard that as long as no third party can come forth and demonstrate injury, no third party may interfere in the conduct of two consenting adults.

    I believe that society is more than the sum of its parts, more than the mass of individuals which comprise it. And I believe how those individuals behave, whether they are consenting adults or not, influences the health, strength, and fortunes of their families and communities, and those of the larger society that they belong to.

    And I believe that prostitution is a foul business that degrades all participants-- customers and practitioners alike-- destroys families, and spreads disease. I have every right to seek the abolition of such a practice.

    As has already been noted, that is also how society becomes degenerate.

If that were true for everyone then there would be no prostitutes, swingers, **** buddies, etc.

    So what? I've noticed that those who are okay with it have no self respect. What's your point?

    Does anyone really think of it in those terms?
    When I have sex, I'm no more "giving my body away" than I'm taking somebody else's body away.
    If something can't be given away, how can it be sold.
    In fact, the original occupant of the body in question is still sovereign over the body, still the sole occupant, proprietor, and custodian of said body, monetary exchanges notwithstanding. There is no way to transfer ownership of one's body to someone else. You can't sell it, even if you wanted to. You can't even rent it out, because no matter what kind of sexual hijinx you get up to with another person, you- not they- are still the sole occupant of your body (and they're still the sole occupant of theirs).

    One can't "sell one's body", unless one sells it to a medical school as a research cadaver... and then they can only collect it after one is already dead.

    It's a dumb saying, "sell one's body".
    it's alarmist, misleading, and false.
    That's interesting that you would not know that most people who think of sex in such a high regard do consider having sex as giving one self away. But not for free. It's a spiritual thing, and there is no real personal gain that is materializable.
    You're taking "selling a body" as a literal sense.
    It's not meant to be literal. You can sell ones body for a night or for an hour or for how long one see's fit. Usually prostitutes do sell their body--not just sex. Prostitutes are usually willing to perform almost any sex act (I know this is not always the case). In some cases they are expected to be extremely submissive while another perosn has their way with them.
    What is sex exactly? How can one sell sex? Define sex in clear terms so it cannot be misconstued. Is sex only access to the vagina? It is only access to sexual organs? And what would you consider sexual organs since I've noticed a lot of women on here do not think breasts are considered in that catagory? What is the "product" you call sex in black and white? Since really, both terms selling sex, and selling your body both fall into a grey area.

    I have self respect thanks and i don't see why my morals or views should restrain what two consenting adults do. Hell if a man wants to pay and a woman wants to sell. Good for them! Keep it indoors and i don't mind.
    Whilst we're at it, legalize prostitution.

    Everyone sells "their bodies" if they work for a living. Any type of work requires a body to perform it. And no, I have no problem with anyone working for food, drugs, shelter, a ring on their finger... whatever they want.
    That's a good point. But I think it's wrong to have to work for money too. But that discussion would be getting a tad bit off topic.

    I think his point is kind of like the breastfeeding argument we had awhile back; some people may find breastfeeding (or sex) to be an intensely personal, intimate, special and beautiful experience to be shared privately with the one you love; others may view breastfeeding (or sex) differently and less sentimentally, as a biological function which is nothing more than a means to an end, such as to get your baby to quit whining (or, in the case of sex, to get some guy to quit whining, or to have an orgasm, or to burn 700 calories, or to kill time until Southpark comes on, or to earn 3 million dollars for graduate school). Some people take a sentimental view of such functions, while others take a more pragmatic view.
    You can't force or compel others to view sex as a special and sacred act, any more than you could compel others to view breastfeeding as a special and sacred act.
    The law can't force them to, either. Nobody can force them to.
    While you might think that folks who don't take a sentimental view of such biological acts are lacking in self-respect, those people probably, conversely, think that those who don't view such acts pragmatically are big goofy drips. They have a different view of what's important in life. Different priorities. To some people breastfeeding (or sex) are not important things in and of themselves. To others, these acts are a chore, or a means to an end, the end being whatever such people do find important.
    They don't have to agree with you about what's important in life.
    I mean, as long as we're idealizing bodily functions, let's just declare that taking a crap is a special, intimate, and sacred act, and that if you don't treat it with the proper reverence, you've got low self-esteem.

    Everything is subjective.

    When did I say she should be stopped? Seriously. Did I say you had no self respect? No I did not. Reread my post. Take it how you want. But I clearly said I have [i]noticed[i] those who have no problem with it have no self respect. But that doesn't mean you don't. Or that other people don't. Just a majority really. There's always room for exceptions.

    Spot on, and you can't force people to think it's just selling sex either. It's a lose lose situation. I will agree to disagree.

    I don't think they are lacking self respect. I have noticed most of them are.
