    Even if it is heavily regulated, I still highly doubt the safety. Some viruses can penetrate the condoms, which is proven by the scientific researches. Hookers have sexual intercourses with many people so it is not uncommon that they carry lethal, nasty or even unknown viruses. I am not so horny to the point of resorting to the hookers. Diverting my attention and doing other things or just masturbating is fine. I am not a prude. I am just protective of myself.

    You can never stop it, but you can make it safe for those that partake and those who sell.
    I would rather expect more realistic sex toys instead of hoping hookers are clean. Hey, a meticulously built space shuttle can explode. There is no way that a safety overlook can be eliminated.

    The shuttle never exploded because of how it was built. Challenger exploded because a tank full of liquid hydrogen exploded. Columbia broke up because the structural integrity of the carbon-carbon leading edge of the wing was breached by a falling block of ice from the external tank.

    So, given your example...the space shuttle/hookers are completely clean.

    Find a better way to argue, that was pathetic.

    Hah - and we punish people who legally earn money by writing erotica and taking careers as adult entertainment.

    I oppose all types of prostitution that involves the stereotypical pimp, and any other criminal activity. The good law abiding ho should be legal.

    Having sex is not a dirty and sinful deed. Being promiscuous is. I think you misconstrue the religion. The society is not immature. I would rather it keep that way.

    Shall the transaction of human organs be legalized, too, in your logic?
    The bodies of women are not commodities. Think about it. If your female family wants to earn quick money by opening legs to horny men, will you still be this open-minded? No, you wont. This is not an age of tribe when the severe shortage of resources forces human to do what it takes to survive. The fact is that not a single normal citizen, unless she is in Africa, will ever starve to death. So why give in to the greed of having quick money? Go find a normal job. Dont be lazy.

However, as these other illicit activities are required to ensure cheap labor in many countries, I don't support its legalization on a willy nilly basis. In some countries, prostitution may work, however in America's case, some areas of the country have proven they're really good at ignoring slavery and oppression of some individuals by other individuals. So I wouldn't trust any state to create laws which do more than regulate taxation and STD testing on these women.
    This.
    Men shall contain their sexual desires rather than being blinded by them. Work hard, be a nice guy and find a girlfriend. Dont resort to the sleazy and demeaning shortcut of sleeping with a prostitute.

    I stand corrected. Most, though, want to regulate and tax it.
