  • Should be legal and taxed like every other job.

  • I don't think it should be illegal but it should be a highly regulated industry.

  • I think that legalising it is the only way to do anything about the human trafficking and child prostitution. Legalise it, regulate it and actually have some stiff penalties and sentences for those who go outside the 'industry' to the women/girls who don't choose it and are being victimised.

  • I always thought this myself as well. If both parties involved are willing to participate, why not make it legal. I don't believe Pimps should be in the picture but if it was monitored and regulated then let the girls get it on!! Or men. :)

  • Sure, just like any other job. Get these girls off the street corners and alley ways. Call it escort services.

  • I think it should be legal, it is the oldest profession in the world, it is not going away any time soon.

  • I think that besides both parties being willing participants, another stipulation should be that both parties must provide proof of being HIV-free & that they are not in a committed/marital relationship. The last 2 I mentioned can easily add to the crime stats as well as the health stats, plus it's just more drama overall if HIV & marital status is unconfirmed or complicated.

    Sure, both parties may be willing participants, but I highly doubt that both parties are willing to contract HIV or be stalked/threatened/beaten by the other party's spouse. So if these can be made clear upfront, then there's no reason why prostitution can't be legalized (and taxed) like any other service in the industry.

  • Absolutely. Tax the shit out of it.
