It's not your body to sell when your pimp owns you.
Responding to the thread in general, I don't think there is anything in the constitution that would make laws re:prostitution unconstitutional. As pointed out, if so then one could extend that to any kind of drug regulation being unconstitutional.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
To the topic: Worlds oldest profession, should be grandfathered in by default as it predates every single civilization.
All laws based on the premise that someone doesn't like what someone else is doing should be banned outright. Period.
The whole "It could maybe, possibly, have a direct impact on me, so the risk is just too great" argument is pure tripe.
If the risk isn't real and demonstrable then liability should be placed on the responsible parties where applicable instead of banning some activity because its simply easier to do so.
Funny how some people REALLY need other people to live in a way that doesn't offend some set of morals or other. To the point where they lobby and fight constantly against SSM, sex education, or drugs, justified by what COULD happen as a result of some individuals actions.
And then fight adamantly against requiring businesses drilling for oil to be DAMN SURE they don't f*** up the whole Gulf of Mexico. (For instance)
