Re: Prostitution -- why is such a glorious profession illega
While I agree with the fact that prostitution should be legal, I have a few issues with why it should be.
Secondly -- Dating Games: Isn't dating just implicit prostitution? If you are single and want to get some 'tang, you'll have to go to a bar and by a girl about 30 dollars worth of drinks before she falls under your spell and you can take her home. Also, if you're in a relationship sometimes you have to take your gf/wife out for a nice dinner or buy her a necklace if you want guaranteed loving.
That has got to be the worst reason I've ever heard for legalizing prostitution. First of all, insinuating that choosing to have consentual sex with a date or spouse is prostitution is just silly. You don't have to spend $30 to get some "tang". In fact, most girls I knew in college who went home with guys didn't have one drink bought for them. Not to mention, if your girlfriend or wife needs things to be enticed into bed, you have bigger problems than getting some "tang".
Prostitutes don't necessarily enjoy sex with their Johns. It's like pressing a bumper to them, or frying up a burger. It's a job. It has little to do with anything more than money.
Third -- Societal Benefits:
-The gov't could force all prostitution to be done in brothels. This would get prostitutes off the streets, keeping them safe and our cities dignified.
How is this a social benefit? You can't be murdered or raped in a brothel? Drugs wouldn't be in a brothel? Nothing dignified about a cat house in the middle of a neighborhood.
-Prostitutes could be issued licenses. So revenue would be generated and tax dollars would be saved as police offers could be doing more productive things than setting up stings. Also, to obtain a license prostitues would have to be periodically tested for disease and those with severe STDs would be banned from working or at least have to warn customers.
You act like there wouldn't be any "iillegal" prostitution even if it were legalized. Women would still do it without a license. And men would still buy sex from them. Primarily because the unlicensed ones would be cheaper.
-Sexual crimes would probably decrease. Sexually frustrated men could easily drive to a brothel and act out their aggressive fantasies instead of attacking some innocent civilian.
Rape isn't about sex. So the sexual crimes wouldn't go down. Read up on your facts before making an assumption about you don't know about.
-Men in society would be generally happier as EVERYONE would be getting action. Possible outcome... world peace? I don't know throwing that out there.
This was funny.
-Good employment for illegal immigrants and the poor. Why work 10 hours a day in a field making 30 cents an hour, when you could blow businessmen for 60/hr every day?
I hope this was a joke too.
My reasons for saying prostitution should be legalized?
1- We have better things to do with our jails, police, money and time than pick up and detain hookers.
2- It's going to happen anyway, why not tax it?
