    Not me. I can think of a ****load of jobs that I wouldn't want someone close to me to work and think prostitution would be far superior to. Fast food is but one.

    That's because of the severe amount of stigma in this country that we've put on prostitution specifically and sex in general.

    Also, people should be equally disturbed at what their mother and daughter do for free.

    Yeah, I think it should be, although I'm not sure it benefits the workers much, unless they unionize.
    I knew some girls who traveled to Nevada to work in legal brothels, and they made less doing that than they did stripping here.
    Barely made enough to cover their travel expenses.
    If I recall correctly, they told me girls up there in the brothels were making a flat hundred bucks a show, with everything else going to the house. I think they also had to pay a room fee, ie rent their room for the shift.
    Which is really, really terrible, compared to what girls average in places where prostitution's illegal (a thousand bucks a show, or thereabouts).

    I think that it is legal here... not sure, but I certainly never hear about any issues or arrests regarding prostitution.

    Prostitution in New Zealand is "very loosely regulated".

    But is it better to have it run legally, where laws can protect people, or to have it done illegally, where it is run by criminals? Because prostitution isn't the worlds oldest profession for nothing, you will NEVER get rid of prostitution.
