Perfect Solution Fallacy
Just because regulators suck doesn't mean they suck worse than no regulation at all.
I haven't read the whole 11 pages so far of this thread, so I don't know if this has been addressed or not.
I know that one argument for maintaining criminalization of prostitution is that prostitution causes exploitation of women. And that is a valid argument.
However, it could also be argued that legalization of prostitution can also give sexual liberation to women. The reason for this is because it will allow women to become customers of prostitutes, both male and female as the case may be.
Think about it from a woman customer's point of view. Women face the dangers of date rape when they go out and look for sexual partner. Women also face the dangers of meeting men who are stalkers and have other mental illness issues.
So if prostitution was legal, women would have the option of visiting a prostitute for sex instead of facing the risks of going out and trying to get a date.
So this would be how prostitution could allow women to better enjoy their sexuality. Likewise, these are advantages that male customers could enjoy - that is, lower the risk of meeting someone with mental illness and having them get involved in their life. But when the subject of prostitution comes up, most of the focus is on women as prostitutes, not women as customers.
Just wanted to throw that out there, not sure if it has been discussed yet or not.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
Nope it should stay illegal.

Making waffles is different than blowing some dirty old stranger in an alley for money to buy food. Don't you think?
In parts of Asia the very poor have no choice but to sell themselves for money. They do it for pocket change. And the larger the supply the cheaper the price. Been there.
Legalize it here and whenever your daughter needed money for cigerettes she could go do a quick job. Price for a BJ would plummet.
Do you know what the average prostitute in the world makes? They all aren't 1000 dollar call girls.
Something to ponder:
