    Jail, and lots of it.

    So, you would pay tax money to jail people for doing something that would have been legal had money not exchanged hands.

    Brilliant!
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Jails can be self sufficient.

    Once the jail is built, nothing. Make them work for their bed and food. Hot bunk like the Navy. Make jail suck so bad, they wont come back.

    Why? It cant be a shock to you that some people actually really enjoy the act of sex...males and (hold on to your hats...females!).

    So I said earlier what I have always said...that if men could make a good living at prostitution it would not only be legal but there would be college degrees in the field. Thats a flippant but factual comment. Heres the 'dirty' truth. The sex industry has always been targeted towards men and there has ALWAYS been an anti-woman slant. Women are demeaned and devalued in marketing, advertisement, media, and yes, pornography and prostitution. Men LIKE it that way. It keeps roles clearly defined. But...that doesnt have to be the case. This could actually be a very positive thing. It doesnt mean EVERYONE should like it, value it, or even desire it. People can even keep their opinions that it is 'wrong', just like many people hold that cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana use is 'wrong'. Some people today see strip clubs as 'wrong' and thats OK. But the simple reality is that prostitution as it exists is most often an exploitative industry precisely because it is illegal. Changing that would create LESS stigma and even open up opportunities for people that they might not otherwise have.
