    If your body is a sexual commodity, you are a prostitute.
    Guess we'll have to agree to disagree. If I'm forced to do anything I'm a slave, not a someone doing a job.

    It's what kind of slave you are that makes my point.

    It's what you're getting in return for the work that defines slavery vs employee.


    Though I guess you could be stuck in slave-like conditions as an employee. i.e. not being able to leave your ****ty sweatshop job because they'll kill you...

    I say, YES (with restrictions).
    My body is my property and I can do whatever I want with it and if I ‘will’ my body to my family, it becomes their property and can sell my parts.

    This creates a financial opportunity which criminals have and would again exploit, costing many their lives.

    Well I wouldn't say "whatever I want"...You can't have your corpse loaded with dynamite and then detonated on TV as a pay-per-view event. But I wouldn't stop you

    Not necessarily. Many were temple prostitutes, and they were there freely, not as slaves. It was considered a great honor as their bodies represented the goddess, and their work was considered sacred, because it ensured the fertility of the earth. It all depends on how we view sex...as something corrupting and inherently dirty and sinful, or something affirming and life-giving.

    I would blame your view of sex as dirty and corrupting on the puritanistic version of Christianity that you espouse.

    I view sex as affirming and life-giving. It's the depersonalization and commoditization of it that I view as dirty and corrupting.

    But, what if it were a fertility ritual that your belief system required?

    Why don't you feel the same way about every profession? Such as... perhaps, the medical profession who perform services that are affirming and life-giving. Why aren't their services depersonalized and dirty and corrupting because money changes hands? If you think the exchange of money is so dirty and corrupting, then why do accept doing it daily?
