    Sounds like a blast. It's my hypothetical daughter's life, I get to have very little say over it in the long run.

    The question about your hypothetical daughter is if she was traveling and pulled over, arrested for drugs or DUI in some small city - guilty or not - would you like her having the choice of sitting it out in jail awaiting a trial over whether a jury believes the drugs were planted on her and her losing her job, school semester lost and facing a possible felony conviction - OR being released but working as one of the sheriff's fresh-meat gang-bang hookers for the weekend and then the charges dropped?

    That is where legalizing prostitution would lead to - among other things.

    Okay we understand that but at the end of the day, the government is in all sorts of businesses that could be considered immoral (Porn industry tax revenues). Your argument that the government shouldn't collect taxes on immoral industries is already outdated by decades. Society is simply losing revenue that is going to the underworld when it doesn't need to whether we like that reality or not.

    What an absurd story.

    EVEN with legal prostitution, using criminal charges to coerce sex would remain illegal. IF a small town sheriff would do this, the legality of prostitution would have zero impact on it.

    You can legally give sex away, but you can't sell it. Makes no sense. At least with drugs they're consistent... you can't sell them or give them away legally.

    Not that I agree with drug prohibition, but it is at least more consistent.
    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.

    No, it is reality. Criminal charges are used to coerce people into being narcs. Criminal charges are used to coerce people do to many things. The only thing that would be illegal would be to use criminal charges to coerce people to doing something illegal. With prostitution legal, making any case would be essentially impossible. Besides, what is the harm of doing so then, it's just a job. Or at least that is what is being claimed.

    Why not then legalize all crimes and tax those too? Those crimes are "going to happen anyway" and why shouldn't the government get a percentage.

    No, most prostitutes do not have a pimp nor any connection to the underworld.

    Yeah it makes no sense. Ancient India was very conservative, but is was an accepted part of society, as were many surprising things. It was known that prostitutes played a valuable role in maintaining a peaceful, clean social order. It was done in a clean way. The prostitutes were respected and carefully protected and everyone was happy. That is the way it should be done.
