    Prostitution is none of the Federal governments business, unless the woman is lying across a state line and is performing a half and half, then it's interstate commerce.

    It's probably being controlled by the Commerce clause. I can't think of any other relationship.

    The question is, under the United States Constitution, including all of the Amendments is it Constitutional or Unconstitutional for one to lease/rent their body out for the sexual pleasure of another?

    Since this is stupid post day, why not.
    It's not unconstitutional. It's legal in the state of Nevada.

    So a teen from an abused home, who has been hooked on drugs, raped, beaten, and threatened with her life.....that should be legalized, according to you.

    Immigrants brought into a country, their 'bosses' having taken their passports, are now Persona non grata, and are forced to prostitute to survive....you're saying society should support this.

    See folks, this is why the Left have no business anywhere near a voting booth, and forget about holding public office.

    You seem to not understand the difference between 'prostitution', and 'forced prostitution'.

    I understand the issue. If you have point, you're welcome to make it.

    I did.... and it sailed over your head.

    Let me detail it for you.

    NO ONE is saying 'forced prostituion', such as the examples you described, should be legal.

    SOME are saying that 'prostitution', self decided, not forced in any way, shape or form, should be legal.

    Hopefully that clears it up for you.
