    Interesting. But I thought the word "hooker" came from Thomas Hooker`s reputation of having many "female friends".

    Prostitution should be legal. Not that I`m doing it but technically anything that`s yours..you should be able to sell right?
    So..you`re not allowed to sell your body, legally, therefore..you don`t own you body.

    That angers me. I wouldn`t do it, but I would like to know I have the option to do what I want with my own body.

    Magda`s argument is cool. It also applies to the minimum wage -- it`s my body (labor) and if I want to sell it for less than $7, who`s the government to say I can`t.

    Sepia-tenshi,

    Apparently you don`t know a lot about legal prostitution. In Nevada, Disease rarely spreads through or from a brothel as all men/women are checked and examined before intercourse, and they (both prostitutes and customers) have to use protection. All the prostitutes working at the brothel are regularly inspected (blood tests included) and regulated by the State of Nevada Health Department (There has never been a case of HIV found within a regulated brothel. ). These girls enjoy the work and it pays very very well, including a regular paycheck (They keep half of any "sale"), tips, sick days, and vacation.

    But if you want to see disease spread, and more pregnancy. Go look for the prostitutes who have to whore themselves out in states where it`s illegal. That`s where the problem lies. With the prostitutes that aren`t regulated, that don`t use protection, don`t get checked for STD`s, barely scrape by and get beaten by their pimps.

    I also agree with Magda, and I also believe if it was legal there would be more rules and policies in place that it would actually cut down on some diseases, and pregnancy`s.

    Idiots. It`s not illegal because of what it is. It`s illegal because of the reasons behind it. Pimps are not nice people. They meet a nice girl at a bar, have fun with her, invite her to his place, they do drugs...they become friends, she does more drugs and gets addicted...he cuts off her supply, she becomes a prostitute, she buys drugs, she sells her body, to buy more drugs.

    It all comes down to drugs being illegal in the end.

    Also. Prostitutes don`t get arrested I don`t think... the person who pays for it gets in trouble.

    Nonetheless. Sex is free if you get out of the house and try to talk to people... Prostitutes are usually filthy disgusting tramps.

    Or a prostitute could be a girl who had a boyfriend in high school that they loved very much, had sex, got pregnant, her parents wanted her to have an abortion, she didn`t want to, boyfriends parents made him go to military school far away, she had to run away from home, she couldn`t get a decent paying job so in order to have a place to live and feed her child she did what she thought was the best to make money.... you see it all the time on Lifetime.
    But seriously, Of course not all prostitutes are in that situation, but u really never know what someone has been through or how they got where they are just by what they do. It`s a stereo type, also I`m quite sure that in the places that prostitution is legal the women are different because they wouldn`t have to hide what they are doing and they would be in a safer environment.

    if you think about it... just dating could be considered a form of prostitution. Boys do nice things for girls hoping that if they are nice enough and give enough, the girls will spread their legs. Girls take the boy`s gifts and allowing them to pay for dinners and such, then give it up.

    but then again if you really wanted to you could turn any action into a for of "prostitution".

    it`s not negative. I`m just saying its interesting how you can turn anything into a form of prostitution. Women could do that just as easily as men if there is something they want. I mean, its just paying someone with a form of payment to get something you desire.

    Prostitution should be legal, licensed and taxed.

    "have you paid for sex"

    "have you paid for sex"

"One night i slept with 3 guys and made 30,000$$, or One day i was camping with 4 friends in Iraq for over 5 days, shot and killed the second leading man of terrorism, and ended a small portion of a war... you Decide.

    Theres no such thing as free sex, If a man has a girlfriend he has to take her our for dinner, buy her nice things... and keep her happy spending his money.

    With a prostitute, you just skip all the gifts and dinner, and give her what she wants, CASH and then she gives you what u want, SEX!

    Think of it as removing the middle man, Is that not the American way?

    Disclaimer: this not my personal opinion

    Prostitution is legal in England? I live there and I never knew. Also surprised that they legalised it as recently as 1959...

    Still, as spacetiger said, it`s an easy and effective way for disadvantaged women (and sometimes men) to make money. I`m unsure about about the moral values at the moment but £100 for an hour will pay more than 20 hours working in Tesco.

    RodneyJason, there is free sex. Two friends that are horny one night, one calls the other over for sex and they do it. Next day they resume about their normal activities. But you are right about the American way though, ha.

    "Prostitutes don`t get arrested I don`t think... the person who pays for it gets in trouble."

    So far as I know, prostitution itself is legal but "soliciting" for it is not. That is, it`s illegal to walk up to somebody and say "Hi! I`d like to pay you money to have sex with me!" or "Hi! Would you like to pay me money to have sex with you?"

    "Prostitution should be legal, licensed and taxed."
    I pretty much agree. Prostitution is going to go on weather anyone likes it or not. Why not make it legal and have prostitutes regularly checked for STD`s...no one is doing that now and how many diseases are being spread by prostitutes? If a woman wants to sell her body for money it should be up to her.

    Prostitutes don`t "sell their body" if they did they could only do it once before some dude owned their body. They provide a service, by the hour, like a lawyer or massage therapist or a doctor. No one goes around saying that massage therapists or lawyers are "selling their body"...

    Anyway, Prostitutes suck. If they`re poor and starving, I don`t give a crap, go get a job. A JOB. I would NEVER sell my body

    What is it with everyone today thinking sex means nothing? That everone should be able to have sex and it not mean a thing? That`s going to up affairs, then that`ll up divorces, then up suicides! Yeah, hookers should be legal. Anyone who thinks hookers should be legal and that prostitution is just a job, they can go to hell for all I care. :)
