    Selling your body should be high up on the list. However, even that is irrelevant as the majority of prostitutes aren't doing it because they want to start a business venture of some sort. There are other purposes behind them. Procurement of drugs, paying off pimps, paying back human traffickers etc.

    So then isn't the issue making the environment for prostitutes safer?

    Prostitutes don't get involved in this stuff after they become prostitutes, that's how they get there. Human trafficking isn't something which happens to prostitutes after they start prostituting themselves. It's how they get there in the first place. That's not going to go away because prostitution is legalized. Legalizing it will simply put fewer traffickers in jail, it won't change the conditions under which they place women. These libertarian arguments really make it obvious that people don't know how most women enter prostitution or why.

    You guys sound like those brainwashed ChildSafe/ECPAT drones. Most working girls in the US are not trafficked. Although I fully support opening the border and bringing more in.

    Substantial experience, of course.

    1. Most working girls are not trafficked in the US.
    2. Most working girls who are "trafficked" do so willingly.

    Re: Do you support the legalization of prostitution?

    Not really keen on the idea of legalizing it. Seems that the necessary health and safety regulations would be difficult to enforce, and protections for the "workers" difficult to maintain.


    More personally and spiritually, I think prostitution takes something intimate and bonding and degrades it into cheap commerce, and the effects on those who give it and partake in it can be significant.
