    You holding up a seriously political debate? No jokes please.

    In all seriousness, I live in Germany, where prostitution is completely legal and highly regulated. I could bust open the yellow pages right now and hire a whore to come to my house if I truly wanted. (I'm married so I don't) And yet here there are regulatory authorities inspecting brothels and private services to insure that all the women are doing this voluntarily, and not being coerced. Prostitution is just as, if not more rampant in the states, but there is zero regulatory oversight, so pimps could do absolutely anything to these women.

    If you truly give a **** about women, you won't want prostitution forced underground, where the slimeballs can have their way with them.

    I don't know. What do they do in Nevada where there are legal brothels? I would hope they would use protection and for the most part that wouldn't be an issue. I'm quite sure if prostitution was a legal and regulated industry that condoms would probably be mandatory for them.

    A matter of time before you would bring things into this thread from a previous thread.

    I'm not sure either; I was simply asking a question. As we both know, "protection" is not always fail safe...

    Sure, but what does that have to do whether prostitution is legal or illegal? I'll bet there would be less pregnancies if condoms were mandatory. As it is now, there are NO regulations.

    So you're saying you're a morally liberal/socially accepting person? Really?

    Let's call a spade a spade here, chrissy. I'm not here to fight you on this. I just wanted to point out that you have extremely strong views on morality yet still manage somehow to support a person's right to free will. I find that commendable. Wolfie can't manage either.

    Some aren't better than that. What about the ones that really want to do it, love the job and love the money? Why do you feel you know better than they do? Would you like someone telling you what to do with your body?

    I don't think my views on morality are THAT strong, especially in comparison to a lot of others. If someone's lifestyle might have an effect on their work performance and their underlings because of their past career in prostitution or pornography, whether that be on purpose or inadvertent, then I'm against it. But this is off the topic.

    One more thing though, I'm actually more apt to support a prostitute being an educator of children than a porn star, simply because of the exposure factor. Kids probably aren't going to see actual films of their ex-prostitute teacher online. It would be simply rumors.
