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?
    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?

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.
    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.

      Stash, just reread my posts. You seem to be missing a lot of what I'm saying. I don't feel like repeating myself.

        w/e. Duckseason you do realize the prostitutes are usually ugly as hell though right?

        I mean im no expert on the matter, but I would imagine that the ho's that work the streets now wouldnt get picked up by a brothel cause they are pretty nasty most of the time from what I gather.

        so there would still be prostitution i think.


        I think legalizing prostitution is just a bad idea.

            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?

                  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.


                  Sex isnt supposed to be something you pay for. thats the bottom line.
                  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.

                    Me too. I guess I have my accurate perception of reality to thank for that.

                          The really funny part is that after all those posts I think we actually agreed on more than you think.

                            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.

                            Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                              I guess that's possible. But you didn't show it. I really don't agree with much of what you said at all. No hard feelings though. I think that if prostitution became legal today, you'd soon realize that you agree with every single thing I said. Your illogical conclusions regarding the impact of legalized prostitution is where I really butt heads with you.

                                why do you guys have such long and drawn out arguments in favor of making it legal?

                                cant get the ladies without paying?
