If the majority of people in this country feel it should remain illegal then it's gonna stay illegal, if not it won't.And prostitution is only degrading to someone if THEY think it is. What is degrading is subjective. Personally, I find waitressing to be one of the most degrading jobs I've ever performed. THAT was FAR more degrading than prostitution could ever dream of being. Regardless, if someone wants to engage in a profession that someone else happens to find degrading (like waitressing), then who has the right to tell them they can't? No one. And, just because someone feels that a profession is degrading is no reason to keep or make it illegal.
So, whether or not you or anyone else finds the profession degrading is quite irrelevant.
There are waitresses that love the work, and make good tips at it. It's a service job.
It's true that some may be able to disassociate the act from degradation and this would be best for them if they really hate it. You can look at many, many jobs as degrading, so it's kinda whatever you want to pick.
Now you're talking semantics, and noone will ever win with your connotation of free.But see, that's the thing... It's never free. For anyone. If you don't go to a pro, then you have to find someone and convince them to have sex with you. Spend money and time on them. It's never free.
Not if the spouse or girlfriend finds out. Not sure what the response was to here and don't want to go back to look.It's just that some people (prostitutes and their clients) are the ones that are honest about that fact.
We've explained what our definition of it is, and how it differes. I'd say most of the guys here will readily admit that if their wives or GF's found out they went to a prostitute that would essentially end the relationship, so I don't get where it's the same as being a waitress, but ok, and even when it's legal I'm thinking most Significant Other's won't say it's the same as any other harmless relationship. Course I realize this would happen with any form of cheating, but that penis or vagina is going to be the cause for a lot of hurt for being so innocent.It already is just like any other job. Some people just like to keep their head in the sand.
