    Maybe we should make marriage illegal too then. Lawyers are pimps!

    Almost all relationships are prostitution.

    The only difference between a date and a prostitute is the rate of success.

    I hate prostitution. I think it is immoral and disgusting, but i think it should be legal because I have no right to tell you what you can do with your body. Your choice not mine.

    As sex is a personal matter, proper laws would requires that prostitutes
    operate exclusively as sole proprietors, always self-employed.

    Well of course it only applies to consenting adults, that goes without saying. The age restriction and, as I posted above, the limitation that prostitutes are never to be employed but always self-employed, is all the regulation that's required to clean up the industry. They can handle their own health care.

    But without regulations, people will just keep doing what they're doing now, bringing in underaged prostitutes through human trafficking through other countries and sometimes even kidnapping and drugging girls in this country.

    If the industry continues to be unregulated, why would you think any changes would happen? It would be the same, only legal.

    I admit we do need a couple of basic regulations, like I describe above. But the trafficking and raping of women and children is caused by the criminalization of prostitution more so than any lack of regulations. Women and children are not only victims of their captures and pimps but of the police and courts. It's why they can't call for help like victims of other crimes can. When they do, they either get arrested or they get ignored. There are crooked cops too who actually take advantage of them. So ya, the decriminalization of prostitution alone would end a lot of abuse and corruption.

    I think that we're basically in agreement with that, but I think regulation is important. Otherwise, it would be really difficult to know who is underage, where they come from, if they've been tested for diseases (and the serious ones, like AIDS), etc. I think the problems with it really extend beyond the simple fact that it is illegal.
