    Yes, so I read another posters link. Congrats, but it still does not helps with human trafficking it seems? Why do you think that is?

    But my comments about Dutchland (not to be confused with Deutschland) was about governmentally sponsored (thus free) prostitution. Would be nice to have such a thing and go when one feels like it and for free

    Well, if you create a situation, where the work is allowed, but the Person is not allowed to do it, because they come from a country without working rights, you have a perfect situation for human trafficking and exploitation. Even de facto slavery is possible and practiced.

    I did not realize that the Dutch government sponsors free prostitution. Do they consider it a public good?

    Without rights to work in Deutschland you mean. Okay, I see.

    No, wait, I am not certain on this. I said "perhaps" on the post above, and the following post sort of put the word out of context. I heard one country does or did this. I think it could be the Dutch or perhaps Sweden?

    If you hear which country it is, I will read up on it. That would be a really far out way for a government to spend tax payer money. Sort of like giving gays a tax break, if they sign a paper.

    Yes, Germany and Holland both have legalized prostitution and have a well organized bureaucratic system of regulation. Sort of like meat production with registration, health checks, book keeping and all that.

    Fully legalize. The government does not have a charter to override people's decisions on what they want to do with their own body. Legalization and regulation works here in Europe, it's time for the christi-ban to get on board.

    That's a good article. Seems the solution is either severe punishment for customers, or a very, very heavily regulated and monitored industry.
