    It just makes them an easy target.

    Law making is more complicated, than the government simply telling people what to do. At least in functional democracies it is.

    Good point, but if they don't register with the .xxx web domain then they will be caught for using another domain and then charged for hosting child porn. Regardless, I think something should be enforced when it comes to minors viewing and buying porn. A "click here to say you are 18" or "leave if you aren't 18" sentence on a porn site does nothing to deter minors from viewing and buying porn.

    They could just use servers in dodgy countries and portals to avoid their location being detectable.

    Because if they're making a movie out of it, it's "free speech".

    Is it actually illegal to be a girlfriend who will cost? I think, that is a grey area that cant be proven as professional. Gifts or wages? Can it be determined?
    Yes, there are lots of gray areas. But I would have lost my "day job" regardless. Just an investigation could have cost me my job.


    ''I didn't want that kind of attention.''

    The customers are the only ones who know what happened for sure, and they woudnt tell surely? They dont want that kind of attention either.
    No doubt! But sometimes it happens anyway. Perhaps one of the gals who worked for the same agency wanted to make a buck and sell her story? You just don't know what people are going to do, and what evidence they may have.

    ''You don't scrap the industry because of the crime. ''

    What if you had a daughter? Would you mind if she was lured into the sex industry for the cash? Laws should also protect against this type of availibility of opportunity, that many might not take, if they had options to earn big, in another area. Just because women are excluded from the worlds highest earners, shouldnt mean we are not protected from some of the options available, that we could choose for want of an alternative.
    Okay, I object to your use of the word "lured" simply because it implies something unseemly. We are all "lured" to our jobs for the cash. We all determine what we will or will not do for money, and how much money we will do it for. There is NO job out there currently, for men or women, that pays what a high class call girl/prostitute/escort makes in the same amount of time. The main reason for that is that it's illegal, though. I'm all for making it legal for safety reasons, but I admit that making it legal would cut down on the profit motive for certain.

    I have worked my way up in jobs that are, or used to be male dominated fields. There is nothing stopping women but women themselves. The sexism I have experienced along the way has never stopped me. If anything, it has pushed me harder. I'm all for empowering women, but there is nothing - in this country - holding women back from anything. (except in the military) I didn't choose to be an escort due to the inability for me to get a high paying job because I was a woman. I chose it because it was EASY, quick money. I couldn't get those higher paying jobs at the time due to lack of education and skills. Something I have taken steps to rectify, seeing as though I am now in management.

    I've often wondered the same thing. LOL

    I've also often wondered why it's not okay to sell service that you can give away for free.

    Can you prove that?
    Also, who are you to tell women what to do with there bodies? Whether they degrade themselves or not is there choice. Its like punishing people for embarrassing themselves. I want to live in a free, liberal society, as i would say the majority of people do. Therefore, your ideas regarding this paticular topic, to me, is unacceptable, and authoritarian.

    It does seem kinda strange. It's legal to have sex with whoever who want to, but it's illegal to do it for cash. Plus you can do it for cash as long as it's for porno... The law is inconsistent and illogical when it comes to the sex industries.

    LOL No kidding. Someone could walk up to me on the street, hand me $500 and it would be perfectly fine.

    I could walk up to someone on the street, say "You wanna ****?" and take them home and **** them and that's perfectly fine.

    But put the two together and it's suddently OMG THINK OF TEH CHILDRENZ!
