    Legalize it. Consenting adults, the woman's body and all of that should apply here.

    whether it is legalized or not it still causes abuses and human trafficking in many countries.

    in fact as opposed to what you believe it helps mafia increase its control of this sector

    Re: Prostitution

    At a certain point, the morality of suppression always becomes an embarrassment. This was probably another legacy of timeworn religious chastity. How the **** are you gonna justify criminalising sex between consenting adults? This ****'s days are numbered, and rightly so. It's pathetic.

    Because men aren't involved in prostitution?

    Re: Prostitution

    I think where it's legalised but regulated, you're still granting sanction to define morality on the government's own terms. Even the opportunity to reverse the decision. You're also inviting taxation where there should be none. Why is any of the government's business? It's not like prostitutes are making use of resources that exist beyond themselves, other than contraception and premises, which are already taxed. Legalisation should be the end of it. Regulation's an empty gesture.

    Ah. Belgium allows it, regulates it and polices it. Many do not register, however, because they would have to pay taxes.

    For the same reason that you don't regulate people who raise their own chicken for their own consumption and that of their guests.
