Yeah sure,I've been too the Netherlands.
Never any issues there.

You can even use sex as a payment.

Referring to the banning of prostitution as setting a higher standard of living for the life of their citizens is an opinion, nothing more. Therefore, I will have to respectfully disagree and that I see that as no different as legislating morality.


Want socialism, move to China or North Korea. Want prostitution, move to Spain. Want legislated political correctness, move to Canada.

Stop forcing yourself on the rest of America. It's not our fault you decided our ethical standards don't meet your deviant needs.


Yours is not a well-reasoned argument. All you've done is appeal to the supposed moral superiority of your group, which I don't believe you've named in any of your posts in this topic. What reasoned argument do you have against the legalization of prostitution? When you refer to "our ethical standards" who are you talking about?

There is a legal loophole as it is, so it would pretty much be irrelevant.

I know it's not what you mean, but I'm just imagining using sex to pay for groceries at the grocery store

If it's going to be legalized, then it's going to have to be heavily regulated. The health departments at federal, state, and county levels will all need to be involved. Of course that means a new tax revenue stream for government. Lots of licensing, permits, and regulations that need to be written up. Maybe even create a few new government agencies to oversee it all. Make sure all of the regulations are being followed. etc., etc., etc...

Well I don't see anything wrong with it except risking getting a STI (unless protection is used)

It's very problematic really. One big issue is of course people being used to do it as well as people who have no choice but to take the job. Especially if we're looking worldwide.

Probably, although some work would have to be done to be completely on board. The government's role should not be one of legislating morality, if something you are doing isn't infringing on the freedom of another individual than there is no reason to ban it.

As long as the parties are consenting, taxes are collected, STD testing is done, the human trafficking aspect is removed from it, and everyone involved is an adult I'd say yes.

One does not personally need to agree with the morality of things to promote its legalization: I personally find prostitution, cigarettes and drugs disgusting, but I also don't think that gives me the right to tell others how they should live their life and make their own decisions.


This. Much better said than I ever could.

Prostitution is going to exist whether we like it or not. At least they should have the full protection and cooperation with the law. Instead of existing on the fringe of society outside of the law where they are ripe for abuse and exploitation they should be regulated, protected and allowed to do their thing. The person I quoted covered it much better than I could.
