    Indeed! And why do you presume that my person was for sale when I was a prostitute? It was no more for sale then, than it was working for the government.

    No woman should be for sale. Not even for a short period of time and a boatload of money.
    I agree! Fortunately though, that's not what prostitution is.

    Lying down with a man for a dollar is like going to church for the wine.
    I don't even know what this is supposed to mean.

    Forget all that.

    The difference is in other jobs you're not a whore.

    I do. And I did both. I also paddled rivers because I wanted to, AND because I was paid to. I worked on computers because I wanted to, AND because I got paid to. One was a job, one was free, personal time.

    But I fully agree that no one should work ANY job they don't want to work.

You know how it works, you know how the company policies work for refunds and dissatisfied customers, you know how the civil suits work for non-payment and for suing for unfinished or shabby work. There's no reason to presume it would be different in one profession than it is in another.
    I'm impervious to the notion of it becoming legal, or remaining illegal. I enjoy the prowl, or the chase, it's what I find to be exciting, so slapping down some cash would take away the thrill.

    You make a very good argument, unfortunately the argument supports why it shouldn't be legalized.

    Take each point you make, and apply it to an already overburdened court/judicial system.

    Every act or service could be contested over quality. What a mess.

    There is no dignity and honor is asking "would you like fries with that?" at McDonalds. There are plenty of jobs that lack dignity and honor. People do these jobs because they get PAID for it.

    These are separate issues. There are plenty of prostitutes that do not fall into these things.

    Has history proven this at the Bunny Ranch in Nevada?
