    Just because you don't accept them doesn't mean the same for the rest of society.

    Besides, who cares about being socially acceptable? People should be free to do as they please, obviously as long as it doesn't cause bodily harm to or endanger the safety of another person.

    As far as degrading the human body and being sexually immoral, these are both personal preferences and should not be forced upon society as law.

    I will say that I'm really confused as to why a pimp (essentially the proprietor) would ever have to be drug tested.

    Sex has always been a purchasable commodity. It sometimes comes in a long-term contract called "marriage".

    Yes, prostitution should be legalized. I'm not really sure what else you might be referring to. I can't think of any other sex acts done privately between two consenting adults which are illegal.

    I'm no prude. I enjoy sex as much as the next person; even some of the more unusual forms of sexual expression. I just don't believe that most people are capable of keeping it in private, and therefore we need to restrict what can and cannot be done.
    Tigger...so you're in favor of a police state in which adult sexual behaviors are under constant scrutiny?

    You want a person assigned by the authorities to follow you around to monitor your sexual encounters in any private setting of your choice...in order to keep you from exploiting your sexual experiences in a public setting?

    The more that I think about your comment, the more deeply troubling that is to me.

    In case you haven't noticed...there are laws against having sex in public places by consenting adults.

    And excuse me for saying so - but I think you are way beyond the meaning of the word "prude".

    Not true. At all.

    How do I know? Because in some places I've been, prostitution is legal.

    Go to any major American city, and you will see prostitutes standing on corners from the moment the sun goes down.

    In some countries where prostitution is legal, there's a lot less of that. Why? Because they can run it indoors, people know where they are, and they don't have to advertise by standing on the corner. In addition, curb-crawling is frequently illegal in these countries anyway. If they can do it legally and people know where to go to find them, why would they take the risk of standing on the corner and being arrested? It's not worth the trouble.

    Not only that, but being in a fixed position is a better business model - they'll get more repeat customers because they won't have to switch up blocks all the time.

    Prostitution being legal, and not on the streets, also reduces all manner of violent crime. You don't have gun-toting pimps in every alley.

    Legal prostitution is not only LESS visible to those who don't want to see it, but communities are safer.

    So in short, the solution has already been found. Make it legal, but just ban it from the streets. Prostitutes are not going to be inclined to break the law, because it offers them no benefit. They can make money more consistently, and legally, by taking it to private property.

    Lets be careful here, the slope may be slippery.
    Sex should NEVER have been legal nor illegal between consenting adults, the "law" should mind their own business.
    But, then, is man ready for "freedom" ??

    If you give it stipulations and specifications then it's still not completely free or legal - it's regulated.
