    That's a good idea, require some kind of medical card in order to shop at a brothel so as to protect the worker. Maybe something like DOT medical card that CDL drivers have to get. Maybe even require some kind of basic std education to get the card.

    That would also create a registry of customers and the government could revoke the medical cards of felons thus keeping the whole brothel safer.

And, at that point pimps could be put out of business because there would be legal recourse to the women abused by Johns.
    It is heavily regulated in Nevada and there are few of problems and little or no HIV transmission. Holland and other nations also regulate it. Some of the laws in Nevada are heavy handed and designed to make the prostitutes second class citizens.

    The "second class" part is the only portion I think is wrong. I have no desire to engage in business with a prostitute but couldn't care less if others choose to do so, personally I feel that if it were legalized and fell under health codes it would improve the lives of all involved.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    They are privately run. As I understand, most prostitutes work as self employed persons. Only about 10% are Germans with the rest from various other countries. They work from home, rent a room in a house of prostitution, visit or stand on streets in certain areas. The number being held by pimps and forced to sex is unclear but seems rather large. The EU reprimanded Germany this year for not doing enough to stop it.

    Because it's immoral, and if it were legal it would be solicited publicly.

    Infedelity is immoral too. Should we lock up half of the married people?

    Regard your half comment, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.

    And yes adultery should be illegal.

    So we could have an economy where half the population is babysitting the other half behind bars. That's hilarious.
