Meanwhile the demand grows and the market can't sustain it. That's when the sex slaves and human trafficking are ushered in to feed the demand. And yeah I got a bit of a problem with that.
    If prostitution were made legal I think everyone would be surprised by the number of prostitutes. It seems to me that you are only disliking the idea because of your own paranoid views of what most likely wouldn't happen. If it was somewhat regulated, I fail to see how sex slaves would come into play. In fact, I think like with the web porn industry there would be a lot of women working independently.

    Also, aside from all the people clapping for prostitution the truth about prostitution is that it's ugly, often involves underage girls who ran away from horrible homes, drug addicts, and all around desperate damaged women whose very flesh is treated like a commodity on the market.
    Prostitution can be that way of course. That doesn't mean that it is inherently like that, though. It's just sex.

    Wouldn't that mean it is better for the Government to legalise and regulate it?
    Inside UK, It is some of those types of girls that walk the street and the problem is because of a few upstart people - Prositution has gone underground meaning the police cannot protect or know what is happening increasing the danger.

    Yes, there is a difference. The latter guy is honest. The former is not. (Unless the former guy told the one night stands that the sex was exactly that... but they rarely do)

So no matter how much you all applaud it and act like it's a choice lifestyle it all sounds like b.s. Most folks don't even want their daughter dating a jerk let alone allowing one to exchange money for sex. It's low. It always be viewed as kinda scummy. Trashy. The women involved will always come off as mostly desperate and damaged. I see no reason to applaud New Zealand.

    But go ahead. Clap away. I've said my piece.

    If you're concerned about sex slaves, human trafficing, and underage prostitutes, then enforce the laws concerning those elements. I don't see why that can't be done AND prostitution be legalized. Even where its illegal, the demand is still there. There is a reason its called the oldest profession.

    women whose very flesh is treated like a commodity on the market.
    Are physical laborers any different? Instead of attractiveness of their flesh, they sell the strength of their back and arms - often for low pay, bad working conditions, and exploitive employers. I know, I used to be one. So I know the answer - let's ban physcial labor!

    I didn't say they were married. I said they had sex outside of marriage, meaning they were not married to the person they screwed. That's the moral issue. So should we make one night stands illegal too? Since they are immoral.

    Re: Selling sex legally in New Zealand

    The problem with the people against prostitution legalization is that they don't see the case with a pragmatic perspective:

    Prostitution has always existed and will (has) not disappeared by interdiction. I even see a social benefit of prostitution: some people can be helped by seeing a prositute (I would bet it as more efficient than a psychanalyst )

    The only result of unlawfull prostitution is that it encourages criminal activities: maffia, bad treatment of the girls, even esclavagism. Look at the prohibition for example!

    A carefully planned Legalization can diminish criminality I would guess. NZ example tends to show this. It would be interesting to see graphs of certain types of crime (rape, battered women, etc...) in this country and check if the tend to decrease.

    How is one a pig by selling sex? It's just sex. I am constantly baffled by the absurd importance that people place on such an act. Obviously sex with someone you love means far more than sex with some guy that you just met. If men are willing to pay I see no problem with women exploiting that for their own benefit. I've yet to hear a sound argument against prostitution that doesn't involve moral views or paranoid assumptions.
