    exactly.


    the stereotypical definition of pimp/madam would not exists but yes companies/orgs that have a hierarchy of service would exists and then of course youd have private contractors.

    pimps typical muscle the territory and dont allow private contractors and they also offer "some" protection.

    making it legal would get rid of that and in general it would become safer for both parties

    To the bolded parts, which is it? I think you contradicted yourself.

    Sorry if I'm missing something, but this doesn't make any sense. Do you mean profitable for the customer, or profitable for the "pimp"? Also, who says we have to have the same system as Germany? I don't know much about normal prices, but I would think we could get the legal alternative to complete on a level where most people would pay extra for legality, and less risk. (STDS)

    The first records of prostitutes are slave auctions.

    Some "profession".

    Your lack of understanding is getting tedious.

    1. Women from EU countries don't need work visas/green cards/work permits of any sort to work in Germany as prostitutes.
    2. The overwhelming majority of women trafficked are from EU countries.
    3. 25% of the women trafficked were Poland/Czech Republic:
    a) both of which are countries that have legalized prostitution
    b) both of which have women who don't require visas/work permits to work as prostitutes in Germany.

    You're starting to look REALLY ignorant.

    Please note that "necessary" is in quotes.
    Many diferent buisness models could operate prostitution. The presence of a pimp would depend on the buisness model used.

    No you are for not taking into account that their methods are different from ours. People who come here DO need work permits, etc.

    Won't make a dent and not by much are interchangeable terms.

    Sorry if I'm missing something, but this doesn't make any sense. Do you mean profitable for the customer, or profitable for the "pimp"? Also, who says we have to have the same system as Germany?

    Profitable in the sense that it would bear any kind of positive fruit for the society in general. We'll simply have

    1) legal prostitution
    2) illegal prostitutes being shipped in by those who find it more profitable to put slaves to work
