    I support the legalization of almost everything...ALL drugs, prostitution, gambling of all forms (short of gambling on cockfights or other cruelty) and just about anything else between two consenting adults.

    Bill Clinton weeps. Do you support the legalization of prostitution? You could have saved him for being a laughing stock if you had had power in the past.

    Its only able to be used for extortion if the man is doing something he shouldn't be doing. If he was frequenting a legal business then it isn't illegal to do it. If he is married, then he runs the same risk of getting caught going to a brothel as he would doing it with a stranger, especially with social media nowdays, the amount of our lives that are videotaped everywhere, and just how crazy some people are when it comes to sex (maybe the woman fell in love with him, maybe she gets pregnant and wants child support, two problems not likely to arise from a visit to a brothel).

    Nudist colonies, masseuses, likely a number of other things as well.

    Your "sovereignty" over your body isn't absolute.

    The biggest issue with that is how the meat was acquired. Usually it would involve severe criminality or public health risk. But if there is a legal and safe way to do it I'm not opposed to someone eating human meat.

    I can only think of a very few extraordinary circumstances where I'd support infringement of a persons right to autonomy over their own body. I support a woman's right to choose when it comes to abortion I don't see why I would take away her right to choose when it comes to sex.
