Prostitution?

They say legally a marriage isn't consummated without the act of sex?

I went on a date and spent over 100 dollars and then we went to her place and had sex and we both had a good time...no crime.

One night I had dinner with a lady friend and later that evening we had sex.

I met a women a a bar and we hooked up. No money was exchanged as we rolled between the sheets...no crime just a lot of physical fun.

I met a women and we had sex but I gave her some money to pay for a dinner that I had promised her...where's the harm in that?

I see Prostitution as a victimless crime... how about you?

Why tie up our courts and waste time and money prosecuting prostitutes?

If a person wants yo make money by using what they have...why not?

Who is forced to use their serve?

Prostitution isn't the cause of STDs and HIV.

If the woman (or man, for that matter) performs sexual acts for money
* of their own free will
* taking effective health precautions
* taking effective contraceptive precautions
then I agree.

There should also be a contract to the effect that if in spite of
precautions, a pregnancy results, both sides are equally responsible and
that if in spite of precautions, a disease is transmitted, both sides are
equally responsible.

Not of one's own free will is rape.

I hope people would take precautions regardless.

You can't force people to use contraception.

The idea is for government and others to not tread on people lives when there is no need to.

If prostitution was proven to be harmful I would not be for it. I fail to see the harm... mentally or physically.

Yes, you could force people to use contraception if prostitution were a
legitimate business. I would be part of the contract for services.

And, of course, minors should be prohibited from the profession.

There are laws on the books concerning this issue -it is called statutory rape. They exist because minors can't give consent no matter what.

We don't have to create new laws. We just have to eliminate this bad one.

There's isn't any good reason for it as I can see.

There would be a greater chance to eliminate pimps and many of the criminal elements perhaps.

And like with the liqueur tax and the gambling tax and the cigarette tax a it makes for a source of income and revenue.

I would be interested in knowing it's down side.

@argome321,
On the contrary, we would have to create new laws to regulate the business.

T

That would be too intrusive and counter productive to my reasons. I think the government would be over stepping it's province. You can't force people to be sterile or make them act as if they were.

If a child is conceived you can always sue for child support and paternity rights. But people should know before hand what they are getting into like with any contract written or verbal.

It should be a matter of common sense.

I disagree, There's enough laws on the books.

What new laws are needed? I don't see the need for it.
What would they be based on?

@argome321,
Such laws would regulate the business to insure the health and safety of both
providers and users.

I'm pretty sure you would find that business laws already covers most, if not all, of your concerns.

I'm also pretty sure that laws of human abuse are also on the books.

Also if prostitution becomes a legalised business, the income from it should be subject to taxation, and any premises used might be liable to taxation as business premises.

Not doing so would be a sin tax error.

And, as such, would be subject to pun-ishment, right?

No, those laws only allow for a few counties to have Brothels. Red light districts are illegal.

The main reason or the excuse the law makers use to deter legal prostitution is that they say the brothels are a Public Nuance.
Seems quite a bogus argument to me.

I bet If they unionize prostitution and lobbied on their state capital they would probably get laws in their favor. It's all about economics.

So I ask why are there laws against prostitution?

A very difficult one to discern.

I'd say it's almost a nuisance..

depends on the jurisdiction whether there are laws against prostitution or if the laws are against soliciting or if (as in the jurisdicition I'm in) the laws target the johns, not the prostitutes.

so the ''why'' varies
