    Should Prostitution be Legal?

    Should it be legal/illegal? Why? Any other thoughts?

    I think its pretty gross and pathetic, and its certainly not something that would ever be a part of my life, but I don't think it should be illegal. This is because outlawing it does little to prevent it, therefore none of the goals of outlawing it get accomplished. It also adds to the taxpayers burden while yielding little to no return on investment. I also think if it were legal, the public health risk would be reduced, either because of regulation in a more socialist system, or because of market demand in a more laissez faire situation. Basically its a very similar situation to drugs- its not going away, and its a victimless crime, so we ought to find the best way to cope with it.

    Sweden has a high success rate with making prostitution illegal.

    Whores get money for delivering nothing of value, thus people who actually don't have the potential to live on their own, get the chance to procreate, this is detrimental to a society that wants autarkic people of strength, not slaves who have to sell themselves to others to survive.

    It should be illegal, interestingly enough, during crisis the demand for whores increases, e.g. war, maybe some exceptions need to be put in place.

    Certainly their customers value their services. Thats why these transactions take place in the first place.

    Wouldn't you agree that sex increases the quality of your life?

    Sweden’s new prostitution law (criminalizing buyers, not sellers) has reduced street prostitution some. The question is if the law has just pushed it toward internet and illegal bordellos.

    I might be wrong on this, but I think social acceptance on using prostitutes is very low Sweden. A good thing! I think these attitudes, and not the law, is what keeps prostitution low in Sweden, compared to some other countries.

    Some claim that the law has created more danger for street prostitutes, by reducing the customer base and forcing them to accept dangerous clients.

    How many prostitutes actually have children, aside from those they have before becoming prostitutes? Eliminating welfare would do far more towards that goal.

    Banning prostitution isn't a good idea, and very difficult to enforce.

    As far as the overall moral caliber of society goes, I'd rather have a few prostitutes as a designated outlet for men who can't/don't control their sexual urges rather than have them preying on regular girls by getting them drunk and lying to them.

    banning prostitution is like the war on drugs. it's never going to end. it generates money into the cities.. it's tolerated to an extent.

    Prostitues don't have to know anything to be prostitutes, that's the crux, they "produce" value out of nothing, the onyl prerequesite for a prostitute is to be a prostitute, such people shouldn't be allowed to accumulate wealth. Which they could use for procreation.

    Certainly not with a whore.

    Too many, the numbers are not important, the fact is, that they can preocreate, due to a relatively good income.

    Specific welfare has its use, however I agree that prostituion should not be limited to whores, many workers engage in similar relations with their employer, and of course there are enough welfare recipiants that prostitute themselves to the state.

    Which needs prove, as I said Sweden is a good example.

    A daring notion to say that men who go to whores, can't control their sex urges, or that whores in anyway halp to relief sex urges so that less rapes would occur, etc.
    This needs sometihng to back this claim up.

    However, the overall social framework needs to be taken into account as well, banning something is only one part of the deal, prevention is another.

    Ban the whores. If men want sex they should get a girlfriend and they get it for free.
