    No, I don't think it should be legal.
    But since it's legal in Nevada it must be a state's right to decide on the legality. Right?

    Re: Should prostitution be legal?

    Time for our regular "should prostitution be legal" thread again, I see.

    Yes, it should be legal, licensed and regulated. Safer, cleaner, better for both prostitutes and their clients. With proper zoning, of course. A brothel alongside a strip club or adult bookstore shouldn't be a problem.

    Sorry, but your "word" isn't good enough. Seems like you have been all over the world actually and a personal story when it comes to just about every scenario.

    Which is why the regulations that would result from legalizing prostitution are a good thing.

    Men who use prostitutes should be ashamed of themselves..
    LOL

    Keeping it illegal does NOTHING to help the girls. Nothing at all.

    Did anyone imply the practice should be limited to female prostitution?

    Regulation would prevent women from being forced into the business. They could also feel free to seek help without being prosecuted on prostitution charges.
