    Prostitution

    Forget your personal views of it, should it be legal or not?

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero

    While a horrible profession, it seems to work better when legal and regulated.

    Re: Prostitution

    It should be legal. If we recognize the right to bodily sovereignty, essentially meaning that one owns their own body, then they should be able to sell/rent the use of their body for money if they desire.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Yes. While I don't agree with it morally, like many other things making it illegal won't stop it. And making it legal would help everyone involved in the transaction, the prostitute, and the john.

    Also I really don't understand how someone isn't allowed to sell their body, I mean, it's theirs, and it's not hurting anyone else. I believe they should have that option.

    Re: Prostitution

    Doesn't make sense to me for an action between two adults that's hurting no one to be illegal.

    Re: Prostitution

    Makes absolutely no sense that I can have sex with someone for any reason in the world and it's perfectly fine, but if a dollar changes hands suddenly it's a criminal offense. No sense at all. I can sell the use of my body to do anything else and it's perfectly fine. But if I sell the use of my body for sitting on a dick, suddenly it's some horrific thing that must be punished by law.

    Absolutely retarded.

    At least if it's legalized it won't be run by criminals.

    Re: Prostitution

    I wouldn't want to do it for a living, but I have no problems with it being legal.

    Re: Prostitution

    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

    Yes, the benefits of legalized prostitution outweigh the cons of it.
