That's what makes the world a great place. Freedom to form opinions. I just won't use the toilet seat after you.
    Two bucks? Where the **** do you live? Guys didn't get to LOOK at me for $2. They couldn't even touch me for less than $400. My average trick paid me $600-800 And hell, as far as high class call girls go, I was inexpensive.

    And when I was raped, it wasn't by a trick. It was by a friend, so really... not gonna get me with that bull**** either. As for getting beat up... I had a bodyguard available any time I wanted.

    And, due to the fact that I had a lot of sex both personally and professionally, I'd be willing to guaran-damn-tee that I've been STD tested a ****load more times than the average woman has. I'm a safer bet than the average chick someone would pick up in a bar, that's for damn sure.

    And yes, of course you have the right to "look down on me", just as I have the right to look down on you for willfully remaining ignorant on the subject at hand.

    I'm not saying that you have to applaud what they are doing. And come on...who is looking down on who? Just look at your posts. It's obvious that you think you are superior to women who do this.

    And as you were sharing your opinion I was sharing mine. I'm going to continue to share mine and if you don't like it I suggest you take some of your own advice.

    No matter how much people preach morals, it will not prevent prostitution. What should be utmost importance is the females welfare.
    The female welfare? Are you kidding? Nobody is talking about the sex slaves. Prostitution will always be around. However when you legalize it you create a higher demand. This has been shown to be true around the world. The demand increases at a faster pace then the supply does. Not many women will readily volunteer themselves up to whoredom. To feed the supply women and sometimes children are trafficked around the world.

    You won't see me applauding any whores any day soon. Nor will I applaud their customers.

    I am absolutely superior to women who do this and will be for as long as they continue to do so.

    Re: Selling sex legally in New Zealand

    talloulou: I've asked this indirectly, but I'll ask it directly now. What is your standard or reason for wanting to ban prostitituion? And then I want to ask are you comfortable using that reasoning to ban other activities? So far you've listed a few ...

    Morality: By this argument, depending on who's morality we go by, sex outside of marriage, lying, dancing with the opposite sex, vulgar language, immodest clothing, and numerous other things would be open to banning.

    I don't want my children doing it: Again, many things would be eligible to be banned under this standard. Vulgarity, promiscuity, lying, alcoholism, pornography, appearing on Jerry Springer - they would all be criminal acts.

    Poor working conditions for the prostitutes themsevles: Non-union physical laborers often have very poor working conditions. Fast food or low end service workers have pretty lousy jobs with little pay or benefits as well. Should these be banned as well?

    Side affects (i.e. sex slaves, human trafficing, ect.): Landscapers are notorious for hiring illegal aliens. Should we ban the landscaping profession because it contributes to illegal immigration?

    I'm curious if you're comfortable with any of these reasonings being the basis for determining if an activity should be legal. If not, are you willing to admit that you're just drawing an arbitrary line on prostitution based on your own preferences?
    Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.

    There is already a demand and i view it as another business. Why do i care and why is it my business what a female does with her body?

    My only concern is the STD and safety aspect and that can easily be remedied with it being decriminalised and monitored.

    I have respect for them doing what they do, if they enjoy it. Good for them.

    Like there is any difference between walking the street and being a porn star. Still paid to have sex yet one is acceptable

    Yes. It is about the money. When you turn the human body into a commodity you cheapen it and invite exploitation. There's a difference between being a man who lucks upon a woman who is happy to have sex with him within 10 minutes of their meeting vs the men who fuel a prostitute economy with a high demand that leads to human trafficking and the men don't even seem to know or care if the women they are paying for sex around the world are voluntary whores or sex slaves.

    By keeping prostitution illegal and driving it underground you are in effect encouraging human trafficking. Why would you do such a thing?

    Everyone's body is a commodity. We ALL work for a living. We ALL sell the services of our bodies and minds.
