Passion and Patience
#2) Guys can basically already do that if they chose, but most don't
#3) You think your idea of what's right and wrong should apply to everyone?
You need to look into societies where prostitution is legal and see if any of your conjecture is even remotely plausible.

Nice try on twisting what I am trying to say. Fail. There are multiple types of taxes that are imposed across the board. A service or product can have a sales tax imposed upon it. Businesses pay income taxes above and beyond those of the income taxes of their employees. All that, plus other possible taxes and overhead goes into the final cost of the prostitutes service (assuming legal). Now if the prostitute is an independant contractor the business and personal income taxes are one and the same, unless they choose to incorporate (LLC or something similar). And as an independant contractor they would indeed keep all of their fee after expenses. But not all prostitutes would want to handle the finances by themselves. I certainally don't want to deal with all the maintenance, record keeping, accounting and whatnot that goes into being a Owner/Operator for Tractor Trailers. So I hire myself out to someone else who does all that. The majority of the fee that comes from the loads I haul go to the business owner and I get a wage from the owner. Now tell me, if a prostitute decides (not is forced) to hire themselves out to a business that is going to take care of the advertising, health care, accounting, etc so that all they have to do is concentrate on satisfying the customer, why should the prostitute be recieving a majority of the fee, when no other worker in any other field recieves the same?Oh, explain the EXTRA TAX an accountant - independent or working for H&R block pays - since that was your example. You can't, can you?
Not all prostitutes are streetwalkers. You are concentrating on a specific sterotype. You seem to be ignoring the high end prostitutes, also known as Courtiasans or Geishas in some circles. There are those who indeed perform these types of services because they enjoy their job. Or at the least enjoy it more than some of the other jobs they've had. The type of people you are talking about are the reason why many are saying that certain regulations such as health (mental and physical) are needed as part of the industry.And if you think that one streetwalker is doing it because that's what she always wanted to do, I don't know what to tell you. They're normally drug addicts or have some psychological problem. A lot of them commit suicide. What you're doing is taking advantage of a vulnerable person, giving them long term scars for your short term gratification.
Using other people that way is immoral and should not be allowed.[/QUOTE]

Why not they are taxing everything else these days? Plus you'd know you paid for the ? ...

Cartels don't move sex-slaves when there's no money in it, and that's why it's ok to give sex away for free.
The most legal prostitution should be, is to be like torrents where it's technically illegal but you really have to go out of your way and be a major pain to key players before you're ever prosecuted. Simply put, the DA should just not prosecute petty prostitution charges. There should never be a licensed prostitution industry. If people want to participate in an app where sex is advertised with a 'suggested tip' just like Lyft, but no payment is required, then Uncle Same should turn a blind eye.

I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
Though I would vote "no", I think it should be a local issue at the county level. As a result, I would be accepting of legalized prostitution.
