    The two are one and the same. My opinion isn't that pornography is distasteful, it is that pornography is actively harmful to the people who make it, the people who consume it, and everyone that it touches. The desire to protect people from this harm follows inevitably.

    Is this a serious comment? I do believe you.. I am just a bit surprised, by the comment. Never mind with answering the question.

    But, I do think it is exploitative. The word prostitute even means that those who engage in it, are giving up their true value, in return for financial payments. And, this does not just apply to the sex industry.

    But, just out of curiousity, I want to ask, why did you give up being a prostitute? If you were not being exploited in your own mind, then it is easy money, isnt it?

    Your opinion is that it harms. And it is just that... an opinion.

    Like sugar is irrelevant to the candy itself.
    WOW

    Entirely serious.

    But, I do think it is exploitative. The word prostitute even means that those who engage in it, are giving up their true value, in return for financial payments. And, this does not just apply to the sex industry.
    No, it means that someone is perfoming a service for money. We all do it, every day.

    But, just out of curiousity, I want to ask, why did you give up being a prostitute? If you were not being exploited in your own mind, then it is easy money, isnt it?
    Oh, it was stupid easy quick cash, and that's what I was going for. Once I had paid off the bills I needed to pay off, the risk involved with it wasn't worth it to me any longer. If it were legal, I'd still be doing it most likely. But I had to weigh the risk of jailtime against the cash. I was, at the time, working for the DoD. When some of my clients were working in the White House, for the CIA, etc, etc... it was getting too close to home. Too easy for me to be "outed" and lose my "day job" and/or go to prison. When I passed one of my clients outside the Pentagon one day and we recognized each other, it was kind of a scary moment for both of us. Well, maybe not scary as just... hmm... it just made me realize how close to home it was getting and how risky the behavior was with regard to going to jail.

    Once I get my buff body back, I'm seriously considering looking into it again. I'd love to be able to retire early.

    And like me, you want your opinions to be the law. The only difference is that the law doesn't agree with me any more, and hasn't for more than forty years. Laws themselves are nothing more than opinions enforced at gunpoint.

    There's also a correlation. And, that they are different isn't really the relevant point he was making. Just because certain instances of something could be considered degrading doesn't mean that all instances of it are.
