    Well, if you're into fornication, adultery, STD's and drugs, then really, I see no problem with it.

    yes. Because if there is one problem we don't have to worry about in America, it's under-educated un-derpaid foreign workers desperate to get in who can be taken advantage of by criminal networks in their home countries and here.


    I understand the argument in legalizations' favor. Since I am of the opinion that legalization will lead to an increase in the sex-slave industry by allowing it to hide within the legal industry, I am in opposition. College Co-Eds working their way through Med School wont' be servicing truckers for $15 bucks a pop - that labor will be done instead by the same populace who performs that service all around the world, young women who are from another country and who are controlled by their pimps.

    I love a good bit of fornication every now and then. Not into adultery, but I'm unmarried, not into STD's but happy to wear protection (even happier to use a licensed, certified, tested professional), and I prefer to save my drugs for after the prostitutes as I can't get it up when I've had too much to smoke.

    Is that the answer you were looking for?
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    Of course. As I said originally, I do think that legalized and regulated prostitution is preferable on at least a theoretical basis.

    I was simply pointing out that legalization can and does have its own (quite significant) downsides as well if not handled properly. Any proposed move to legalize prostitution in the United States would have to show some kind of workable plan to lessen the impact of these factors before I would support it.

    The European sex trade is widely held to be worse, in large part due to legalized prostitution.

    Yeah... European immigration laws are actually quite strict in comparison to the United States. This is exactly why the prospect of legalized prostitution worries me as things currently stand.

    We have enough problems dealing with illegals already without tossing market driven sex trafficking into the mix.

    Prostitution being criminalized has only resulted in exacerbating threats to the health of the public. Period.................

    Re: Should prostitution be legal?

    i see no logical reason for it to be illegal.

    while i myself may never participate i think it stupid to be illegal.

    regulate it, make it safer and tax the **** out of it like every other business

    The hell? Did you just say the US was the most conservative country in the world? Was that a joke?

    And how is that a rebuttal to my statement that prostitution does not equal a higher divorce rate?
