    Can't say I'd want to do that with a group of my mates, the poor whore would get crushed.

    That sounds like many a sailor's night while in certain foreign ports, at least the younger guys anyway. For some reason they shared some of their "whorehouse adventures" with me.

    And it would be safer, for the most part, for many girls when they could actually become a part of a brothel instead of out on the streets, possibly with a pimp. Everyone involved in the transactions would be able to report abuse and/or theft without fear of being arrested. Might not eliminate all the problems that come from prostitution, but legalizing it would certainly work toward decreasing at least some of the problems for most sellers and buyers.

    They are already readily available, and a legit service, and profession for some. The fact is that when you make something illegal all you are doing is handing over the industry to the criminals, and those residual effects harm society more then the thing that is illegal.

    Not as long as everyone is consenting to the transaction.

Those who make that argument usually are the first to end up in an airport bathroom stall trying to entice the man in the other stall to have sex with them.

    I can name several prominent politicians who made a career of trying to "strengthen the moral fabric of this nation" and ended up doing exactly the opposite in their personal lives. Whether we're discussing a man who wants to put child molesters behind bars and then is caught sending inappropriate texts to young pages, or a governor who wants to end prostitution in New York and then is caught purchasing high-end escorts with taxpayer money, they all have something to hide.

    I've sat here for about 10 minutes trying to come up with a response to that...

    Nope, there is nothing that'll top that.

    Well you could suggest that one of his mates would rather be crushed, then crush someone else

    You know, everyone always brings up the pornography thing (I used to).

    But both parties are being paid in that instance.

    Whereas in one, someone is paying for a service, that SOMETIMES the prostitute has been forced into it.

    Now the real rates of that, I do not know.

    Watch Cat House, HBO Miniseries about a legal whorehouse in Nevada. Very interesting stuff. And on the other side of the coin, these ladies love their jobs. And boy oh boy, do they make a **** ton of money...

    I swear, make prostitution legal, tax the hell out of their salaries, and you can pay off the national debt in a couple of months...
