    how we view slavery and discrimination
    how we treat sex criminals especially those dealing with minors
    our history
    how we regulate things
    how we have progressed and have improved in dealing with womens rights
    what happened when we legalized alcohol
    etc etc

    you can base you opinion off of:

    what happened in amsterdam LMAO

    thats fine by me, do that all you want

    usually I would stick around and let you entertain me but im actually having a conversation with rational logic posters else where that is more interesting. maybe Ill play another times.
    I've come to learn some people will just never see logic and common sense, their emotions will always drive their rational instead of common sense. While I agree with you that they are very entertaining, sometimes it is best to leave them alone, they will eventually hurt themselves somehow.

    When you feed a monkey it might throw **** at you

    Anyway I'm with you and the majority, there's no real reason to think crime will increase and we will magically have a high increase in the number of slaves and sex/kid crimes.

    We already have a high number of sex slaves and sex/kid crimes

    So you're right about some people never seeing logic and common sense, but you left out their blindness to the facts.

And if you are going to normalize inbreeding then those people would see nothing wrong with producing offspring because you are telling them that it is okay to inbreed and that it is no different than homosexuality. Do you honestly think in-breeders are going to be smart enough to use adequate protection?

    It's worth noting, I believe prostitution is wrong for the reasons you described, but neither of us has the moral authority to make that decision for other human beings. No one gave us that authority, and we were not born with it.
    Marriage is a legal contract, so in essence you are purchasing sex. If you don't believe it, try getting out of it without paying.

    If the prostitute is not properly licensed and/or does not meet the requirements to be licensed, then the prostitute, the prostitute's "employer", and any person who purchases the service of that prostitute are all criminals. The prostitute for not being properly licensed to sell his/her-self, the employer for not ensuring that their employee meets the necessary requirements for fulfilling that position, and the purchaser for not ensuring that the prostitute was legally able to sell them the service.

    Sex purchasers are much more likely to go through a legally licensed prostitute than one who isn't. Why do something illegally when you can do the same thing for basically the same amount legally as long as the person you make the purchase from is properly licensed?

    You two need to get a clue, especially you. This is all way off topic, and you for wasting you time debate Sangha. Damn, get a clue.

    Re: Should we legalize sexual freedom?

    Most of what I feel about this subject has already been well represented. I believe any sexual contact between consenting adults should be legal, including prostitution (which, along with The War On Drugs, is part of the Law Enforcement Employment Protection Act).

    Some of the hysterics in this thread have been, well, hysterical. The idea that if prostitution is made legal that crime syndicates will leap in and create sex trafficking rings. Ridiculous. First of all, sex trafficking involves non-consentual activity. Second, there are all ready sex trafficking rings operating right here in the good old U.S. of A. They are illegal now, and would remain illegal if prostitution was legalized. They would, however, be less profitable. Crime syndicates and cartels prosper by providing illegal goods and services for which a demand exists. Make prostitution legal, poof. Customers have a clean and legal service to access, and are less likely to utilize the terrified, tear-stained sex slave who takes man after man after man without so much as a sponge bath in between. Well run bordellos can provide clean, medically-certified women who choose prostitution as a career. Frankly, legalization takes a bite out of crime rather than enhancing it.

    Now the old in-breeding hysteria. "OMG! If incest isn't illegal, brothers and sisters will be banging Mom, Dad and Grampa every damned day, because there ain't no law against it any more!!" Really? The fact that incest is illegal really stops related individuals from having sexual relations in private now? No, it does not. Will millions of sex-starved citizens suddenly leap the bones of their parents or siblings just because they won't go to jail for doing so? Oh hell no! 99% of people would literally get nauseous at the very thought. So what we are really doing is making incest illegal for the 1% or less of individuals, including distant cousins, who might actually be attracted to a relative. My question... so ****ing what if they are? It's none of our damned business.

    The only reasons to keep prostitution illegal is because of religious reasons, individual morality, and to keep vice law enforcement officers off the lay-off list.

    We as a nation need to flush laws that prohibit what consenting adults can do with each other or ingest in their own bodies, and concentrate on crime that is inflicted on non-consenting victims. Period.

    We need flush a lot of laws. So long as one is not committing fraud, theft, coercion, or violence on another individual how a person lives is nobody elses business.

    And the availability of legalized prostitution will increase demand, which in turn will incentivize human trafficking.

    I would also point out the the illegal pros will be charging less, so the "basically same amount" part may not necessarily apply

    Young women in poor countries are promised legitimate jobs. When they arrive, they are forced to perform sex acts for money and threatend with violence if they refuse. They are warned that if they go to the police, they will end up being sent back home, where the sex traffickers can get back at them and their families.

    The women who are forced in to sexual slavery have bigger worries than being arrested by the police.
