A very simple question that was inspired by a thread I saw in the Intl' Politics section. Simply put do you think prostitution should be legalized or criminalized? Why or why not? I personally support legalization, but I'll take an OP's prerogative and elaborate on why later.
Edit: Just to elaborate on associated regulations, a common position I've encountered is that prostitution should be decriminalized, but that online services, street walkers, advertising, and other mechanisms and 'infrastructure' of prostitution should be pursued and clamped down on while keeping the actual act and exchange of cash for sex should be decriminalized.
