    Prostitution poll

    Usually I make polls public. I'll make this private for obvious reasons. I won't editorialize in this OP. The poll speaks for itself. (Hope I can do it in the 5 minute limit).

    Private, MULTIPLE CHOICE poll. Check all that apply to you.

    Re: Prostitution poll

    I kept it private hoping then people vote truthfully.

    The purpose of this thread is to see how many people expressing opinions on prostitution do so from direct personal experiences or from what they believe from what they have seen on TV and in the movies.

    I dont see the point to this. It's like a poll on people who have been to war. I've never been to war but I can have an opinion about it

    I've never had any personal involvement, just professional chiefly from having been in LE.

    From what I've seen a majority are involved in an abusive/exploitative relationship that often seems to center around drugs. I am aware there are probably exceptions to this, but I'm going by what I've seen.

    Very sadly I recall a certain streetwalker I encountered on several occasions over the course of about five years. The first time I saw her she was a healthy-looking attractive young girl; my partner noted that she must not have been "in the business" for long.

    Five years later, she appeared to have aged decades, looked very unhealthy and rough. She disappeared entirely soon after.

    While in general I support people having the liberty to do with their body/self what they will (if it harm none), I am very uncertain whether legalizing prostitution would be a good idea overall. Something would have to be done about the exploitative aspects and risks. Like drugs, I hate seeing it does to people.

    Re: Prostitution poll

    Well hey hey hey, if it isn't a multiple choice poll, and right after I got done wasting someone's time by bitching about their single-option poll! I voted for #4 and #9 - I've not had sex with any prostitutes, and I have had fairly little interaction with the sex industry as a whole beyond watching porn. I would be willing to date a former, or even potentially a current sex worker depending on how at risk of STDs they are in their line of work, but I'm not necessarily sold on marriage as an institution. #9 was still mostly applicable.

    The poll results already make this worth it...

    True, but what it actually is like to be in war itself literally? You can have an opinion of what that is like, but it all hearsay and mostly from what you see on TV and videos.

    It's like when people post what they would do for a home invasion or when attacked, when they never have been. They can only state what they hope they would do and would want to do, not what they will do. The portrayals of prostitution and the realities of prostitution are not the same thing.

    Long term prostitution will destroy nearly anyone. It's inevitable and a nature of the profession. That is just the physical aspect, not even counting the psychological potential damage.
