    Absolutely retarded.

    It is plain wrong that a person is legally allowed to have sex for any reason in the world with another consenting adult except for actual money at that moment. Not to mention, it is even legal to pay two people to have sex in front of you and a camera as long as you are following the proper federal and state laws to make porn.
    At minimum it should be monthly and all people in the profession should be licensed.

    Some STDs could be done monthly, but I think that it really would be a waste to require all of them to be done monthly, when some of them, such as HIV, take several months to actually show up in a test.

    I do agree with the licensing. And I would say that condom usage would have to be mandatory to help prevent the spread of diseases.

    Regulate it. Tax it. And in the words of Nike - just do it.

    All men pay for sex. Sometimes they just do it in the form of a marriage or a relationship.

    Trust me - it's cheaper to buy a hooker.

    It should be legal. You can have oversight then, proper regulation and testing and fair wages; that sort of thing. I'm sure you'll probably never really get rid of the street walker sort of scenario, but through legalization and proper regulation you can make the situation a lot better for many others. And there's no base reason on why prostitution should be illegal.

    I'd like to change my vote. ;-)

    What difference would it make? If it were legal, there'd still be skanks that stand on the street corners....girls who didn't get tested...girls who are virtual prisoners of their pimps...slave trade...all the rest. We can't even stop it now that it's illegal.

    What I really wish? I really wish that any John who was arrested/convicted would get his photograph posted on line. Keep it illegal and make that happen.

    vote no. if they make it legal then the government will tax it. I don't want to have to pay $22.50 for my $20 BJ.

    You assume the gov't isn't run by criminals.

    You know Gipper, I am sick to death of the way you repeatedly insult women here. Just because you can't manage to get yourself laid, you have no right to attack an entire gender and get away with it. Were you insulting Blacks, Asians, Muslims ... etc you'd be infracted. You may think your "humor" is cute, but it's not in the least.

    Has it ever occurred to you that women HAVE JOBS and are simply not out to live off someone else's money? Before I gave up my career to stay home with my son, I made more money than my husband. Selling a lucrative business enabled me to contribute financially as well as giving me the time we both wanted to raise our son. Your constant insistence that women sponge off men is not only insulting and archaic, it's just plain WRONG.
