    You know that much about the suffering of male prostitutes, or you just don't care about them? Interesting.

    There's no criminal profit incentive when it's given away for free. That's why you can donate organs but not sell them.

    The law is the only thing that makes it criminal. Besides, with prostitution, you are only renting the organ, not taking ownership.

    Unless most men who engage prostitutes bring them into their homes, which I doubt is the case, it really shouldn't matter. It actually should only matter to the man/woman who engages a prostitute anyway. This situation can happen even if you are meeting someone for a simple date.

    I could find no evidence to support that.

    Re: Prostitution

    i voted other

    it should be legalized

    i dont like the verbiage "heavily regulated"

    the women, and or men who "choose" this profession should have regular medical checkups

    other than that, what other regulations do you need or want?

    age restrictions of course....but i cant think of anything else
