    Re: Prostitution

    I'm in favour. Here in New Zealand prostitution is legal, and because of that I have never experienced any prostitutes coming up to me asking if I want to have sex like they did all the time at the main street in Norway. Our red light district is Karangahape Road (aka K Road) and you safely walk there in the middle of night.

    First off I don't see why men can't buy sex if it's done in a proper manner. Secondly, legalizing it takes away the black market because you rather want to have sex at a official place so you don't get STDs or get robbed. Thirdly, the prostitution industry didn't increase after decriminalization.

Certified prostitutes will be able to advertise themselves as such, and take money away from uncertified prostitutes.
    There's nothing wrong with brothels. There are severall brothels here, and they are fine. Actually street prostitution is causing more problems.

    We need some form of consistency in the law, so if we can have abortions, the same principle should legalize prostitution. Thats the only reason I'd support this

    Re: Prostitution

    Im not convinced legal prostitution would get rid of iilegal prostitution.Does having a few brothels guarantee there wont be women who are forced into it to?

    No, but while everything that can be done, should be done to help involuntary sex workers, it would make the business safer for those who are in it voluntarily, which is still an improvement.
