A Short In SI today reports that LB Richard Seigler was arrested in Las Vegas with connections that he "lived of the money of a prostitute" and often transported them. Seigler, the former Oregon State star, struggled in his NFL career being mainly a backup with the 49ers and the Steelers. He was released by the Steelers and then arrested not a day later.

He faces 10 years in jail.

If it was legal for any chick to be a prostitute, a bunch of hookers with STD's could work the corners. I think that's part of the reason that the areas around Vegas that have legalized prostitution are only at legal brothels where I assume all the girls have to be tested. This way they can be regulated and not give out a bunch of diseases.

Re-read what you just said. You're contradicting yourself. Do you think it would be any less regulated as it is now in Nevada, if it were legal everywhere? The fact that it's illegal makes the whole thing much more dangerous/ridiculous. A bunch of hookers with STD's already do roam the corners. Make it legal, and you drastically reduce crime at the same time. You take it from out in the open and isolate it to defined areas. You require the women to hold a license and be tested regularly. You effectively eliminate most of the problems currently surrounding prostitution with the stroke of a pen.

That's BS. Prostitution has been legal in my country for a long time now and we actually have less problems than you guys do, since once it's legal prostitutes become employers or entrepreneurs, hence pay taxes and fall under laws that concern legal work. Legalized prostitution is simply making sure you can regulate it, instead people who make it illegal sweep the problem under the rug.

But I'm getting way too political.

How did I contradict myself? If it were legal everywhere, any chick could do it and not have to worry about getting busted. If it remains the way it is in Vegas the difference would be that a customer soliciting an illegal hooker would be assuming the risk that she could have an STD, so it would be the customers own damn fault for being stupid.
Make it legal and reduce crime, wow, thats brilliant; lets make murder, drugs, and rape legal too, that will reduce crime as well. As for isolating it to defined areas so it can be controlled, that is kinda what its like in Vegas, so I guess we agree on that part.

Yeah bud. Read that last sentence. Where is prostitution legal? Parts of Nevada. So look at how it's done there to find out what it would be like if it were legal everywhere. You're contradicting yourself by saying that if it were legal there would be all these STD problems and any girl could be a prostitute and all that, while in the next breath you make mention of the great way it's handled in the only place it's legal in the U.S.

You don't see that?

Please explain to me how any girl can't just go out and be a prostitute as it is. Then explain to me why the crime rate wouldn't drop if it became legal. Think of all the prostitutes who have been murdered over the years. The ones who have been raped or stolen from. Don't you think they might have benefited from the security that comes with an establishment such as the bunny ranch? Don't you think that street hookers would disappear if johns had the option to go to a place that were legal and much safer? You prohibit alcohol, and people make dirty batches in their tubs and risk getting sick. Crime goes up. Same concept with prostitution. There will always be an enormous market for sex. So why not regulate it and provide a safe environment? Because morals confuse people and logic is rare.

That is the way it currently is. If it were regulated, it would be isolated to designated establishments. Like casinos for gambling. You don't see dudes playing craps out in the street when you walk the Vegas strip.

Legalizing prostitution would effectively eliminate the black market. There would be no reason for skanky hookers to hang out in front of your house because there would be no john to solicit her.

Just to clarify for several people in this thread, prostitution isn't legal in Las Vegas. There are just tons of loopholes and it isn't enforced at all. I like Duckseason's Prohibition analogy, Las Vegas for prostitution today is like the Chicago of Prohibition times.

Yea but then you would have pimps going out looking for girls to pimp out. Would you want your girlfriend or sister to be asked to be a prostitute?


Plus the demand for prostitution is most definitly elastic. Meaning that if you legalize prostitution, it is going to be much more prevalent. Your going to have guys going to a prostitute, like guys go to strip clubs for the 18th and stuff. and thats not right.

If you own your body shouldn't you be allowed to sell it? :p As interesting as your moral code is, you can't impose that on everyone. Legalizing prostitution would make prostitution as a whole safer.

Anyway wouldn't legalizing the profession increase the number of women who would choose to work as a prostitute, so why would pimps need to find more?

No. Again, that is how it already is with the current legal climate. You wouldn't have pimps. You'd have establishments such as the bunny rancgh that would be tightly regulated. Much in the same manner of liquor stores or casinos. Try opening an underground casino in Vegas. See how many people show up. I already said this. The bottom line is that legalization would effectively eliminate the current black market.

The desire for sex is a fact of life. Some lames will always feel the need to pay for it, but I doubt legalization will alter the demand much at all. And just because you don't think it's right doesn't mean the guy paying for it agrees with you. It's really none of your business what another man chooses to spend his money on.

Sex isnt supposed to be something you pay for. thats the bottom line.
Well, all I can say is get used to it. It's been going on throughout the history of humanity. Nobody said the world was an ideal place.

I beleive in Vegas prostitution is only legal (or as someone pointed out its not inforced) at specific places (like brothels) while hookers that walk the streets are illegal. As I have said all along, that is fine with me. But if it were legal for hookers to work the streets, then any chick could do it because it would be damn near impossible to regulate. How is that contradicting myself?

Please explain to me how any girl can't just go out and be a prostitute as it is. Then explain to me why the crime rate wouldn't drop if it became legal.

So why not regulate it and provide a safe environment? Because morals confuse people and logic is rare.

Any girl can be a prostitute now, but they have to worry about getting arrested (that's called a deterrent). As far as the crime rate dropping by making it legal, that would just be sweeping the problem under the rug. People sell drugs on corners as well, should we make that legal so we can say we reduced crime? It might reduce crime, but it wouldn't solve the problem because street hookers and drug dealers would still exist, the only difference would be that the they wouldn't have to worry about getting busted.
Once again, we seem to agree on the whole 'bunny ranch' type establishments that allow prostitution to be regulated.

WTF are you talking about? Women come in all shapes and sizes. That has nothing to do with it. I think the key point that you're missing is that THERE WOULD BE NO MARKET FOR STREET PROSTITUTION IF IT WERE REGULATED BY THE STATE. Those ugly girls you're talking about would have no place to sell their "wares." And neither would any girls with STD's. Also, if prostitution were legal, I'm positive that it would require a license. Selling yourself on the street would be just as illegal as trying to sell prescription drugs on the street. That market would die instantly. How have I not yet made this clear?

Thats why there's laws and regulations once it's legalized. You make girls get tested monthly, condom's, all that sort of stuff (physicals).

You have it in a confined area, ok'd with Zoning laws. (IE not within a 15 mile reach of a school, church or library).

You basically can't advertise (You can't advertise for sex toy shops).. you don't see someone coming to a high school asking girls or guys to work at a porn shop.

As for you not wanting to see your sister do it. Yea, but thats why you raise your kids better. How often do you hear about girls going to New York or California to become actresses/Singers/Stars and end up working at a Strip Club.... they're basically selling their body there. If they're going to do it, you can't stop them.

I think it'll be safer regulated, more out of the public eye (I mean come on, anyone who's been to Vegas knows they hand out baseball card size advertisements of naked girls with a # to call, (Usually guys walking around with a back-pack at night).. and if not them, there's usually some old Newspaper lockers (Those ones you put .50 cents in for a paper), that are unlocked and have magazines (Basically sex ads).

With it regulated, there would be less advertising (Laws).

I'm sure the taxes would be a nice addition in Washington.

As for "Ugly ass Ho's" my dad grabbed one of those Sex Ads Books, and I looked through it. 90% of the girls are good looking UNLV chicks.

Thats all I thought of for now.

It is not sweeping it under the rug. You are speaking about the ehtical nature of prostitution and not its consequences.

No street walkers would exist anymore because the market for them would totally drop of into nothing. Why would any man not go to a private clean place instead of a possible crime. Let alone the laws against streetwalking that would occur the market would drop and so money could not be made.

I'm sure your argument is that Vegas still has street walkers and it is legal around it. But that is because the culture has not changed at all and so people do not understand, as shown by this thread, what is and is not safe and available.

And with drugs, many deaths actually could be avoided if it was legalized. There would not be many fake chemicals in drugs that cause alot of people to get poisoned as well probably dropping prices for the drugs and possibly reducing the want for drugs since they are available. but that is another argument far from this one.

GRF, you are the sorriest excuse for a human being. I don't think I have seen a rational thought shown on this entire board. You quickly make retorts that either go for personal attacks or an argument that makes no sense.

That is a childish thing to say. I never have and never will pay for sex. I've never been the type to waste my money. I am merely an advocate of our natural rights as human beings, and logic. It makes absolutely no sense to keep prostitution illegal. It creates many unnecessary problems for us as a society, and I don't believe that it's my place to say what a woman can and can't do with her own body.

And I don't feel the need to boast about my ability to attract females, so that bait will remain on your line.

Right. Which is where the whole contradiction thing comes in. Which is why I absolutely disagree with you. I understand the differences between street prostitution and brothels. It's the exact same difference between illegal and legal. Which is the part that you seem to be confused about.

I'm Engaged.

and 2... I'm a Computer Science and Pre-Law Double major. I enjoy ethical debates.

3rdly, Your point was:

1) It's unethical.
A: No it's not, Just As I'm sure you watched Porn, thats a legalized version of Prostitution. No? A girl, got paid, to have sex. Prostitution.

2) What about my sister.
A: Yes I would be upset about my sister doing this. However, I would feel much safer (As nothing I could do or say would really stop her if she did indeed choose this lifestyle) in a controlled environment, than walking the streets. If she's going to have this kind of occupation, it's depressing, but I'd rather her be in the safest place working as possible.

3) Consequences of Legalization?
A: Much less than left illegal and un-regulated. STD's, Drugs, Violence(Pimps) all play risks. If in a safe regulated environment, less chances. Un-regulated Prostitution probably would result in a lot more unwanted pregnancies as well. Not to mention ailments due to conditions. How many shows have you seen that prostitutes wear next to nothing all night on the cold streets. In a set environment, that risk is next to none.

4) No luck with the ladies?
A: Again, I'm engaged. But that wasn't my point on it. You said it was unethical. I stated that it's really not, but I thought though legalized would clean it up and on top of that, it would bring in an astounding Tax market.

Therefore meaning. With the abundance Prostitution would rake in for taxes, Federal and State taxes could possibly be lowered. Meaning, thats less I have to pay in april, for them to legalize and control something that they look the other way at anyways.

5) Why the long drawn out conversation?
A: Again, I like debating ethics. If this were any other conversation, say Marijuana legalization, Cocaine, or anything of any nature. I would put my opinion in.

I'm not praying that it's legalized so I can go to Betty's Whorehouse, I'm just saying, It's a problem, that would be much better run if the State/Federal government had a hand in making it safer, and it could provide tax breaks (Hopefully for the middle class this time, along with small businesses), and could eventually lead to a surplus, meaning it could even be funneled into Social Security thats drying up faster than Iraqi Oil.




Frankly what it boils down to is this.

It's going to happen... Legal or not.

Either you can catch a few fish in a big sea, and have them pay fines.

OR, you can own the aquarium and have them ALL pay taxes.

Who knows, a surplus could give us Federal funded health care for everyone as well (Like the money from Iraq could've. Every person 1.33 years or older could've had Health care provided from the federal government, until they die). It's going to happen, might as well regulate and profit from it.

In my arguments I was pretty much saying that bold part exactly.

No, you weren't. Otherwise we would never have argued.
