Regardless, their WAGE is the same no matter what food is ordered. They are employed by the owner of the restaurant they work for. They have sold their bodies to their employer to be used as serving wenches for customers.
Yeah selling the right for some stranger to penetrate you is exactly the same as bringing someone a freaking hamburger.
I guess you guys won this one. Fantastic debating. Intellectual dishonesty is the best way to end a debate.
They aren't offering what's on the menu. They're offering themselves to SERVE what's on the menu.
As to the waitress - prostitute comparison, obviously the particulars of the job are different. As Rivrrat said, the particulars of any two jobs are different. But the fact is a prostitute is selling a service just like any other worker. Yes that service involves her body, but our bodies are involved in any possible profession. I don't know of a single job where you can do absolutely nothing and get paid for it. In those very general terms there is absolutely no difference between prostitution and any other job. Other than the service provided, tell me what the difference is between a prostitute and any other service worker. The particulars are objectionable to many people, but the general concept of using your body to perform a service for another person in exchange for money is the foundation of almost all labor and service employment.
Now I will readily admit the prostitute's service is an intimate one, or at least a vast majority of people would consider it a deeply intimate and personal act. However, if the prostitute doesn't have a problem with it, who are we to say otherwise? The argument for prostitution is pretty simple in my mind.
1) The prostitute is a consenting adult who chose that profession.
2) The customer is a willing client who desires the prostitute's services.
3) They agree on a price for said services.
4) No one is harmed by this exchange.
Where is the justification for making it illegal? For those supporting a legal ban on prostitution tell me how you or society are harmed by an act of legal prostitution. Morality is irrelevant in my mind. Potential side affects like human trafficing are unfortunate, but can be dealt with without banning prostitution. Plenty of industries drive up demand for cheap illegal labor, but we don't propose banning them to combat illegal immigration. Talloullou, you haven't responded to this comparison and told me how the prostitution/trafficing link is different than the cheap labor/illegal immigration link and why it warrants such draconian measures.
Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.
