So another post got me wondering who else thought Prostitution should be legal.

I feel it should be. 

Honestly our bodies belong to us, if we want to use it & get paid we should be allowed to.

It would be a lot safer if it was legalized.

They would be able to pay taxes, thus helping our debt.

And free up a lot of jail space!

 Yeah it should be legal.  Cause then I could have made a ton of money back in the day, and I wouldn't have to work so hard now, when I should be thinking of retiring, but can't afford it.

No I don't think so. It's degrading to women, it shows how much women do not value themselves. And if a man wants a whore, they can go to vegas.

LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOO you're an idiot.... it's not even LEGAL in Las Vegas!

True, it is illegal in Las Vegas, however, just north of Vegas, there are some legal brothels in Nevada.

I think it should be legal...it's someone's choice to do it, so why not make it legal so that it frees up jail/court space, gets cops back to more pressing matters and can be taxed and regulated. It's a lot like weed to me...makes no sense that it's illegal when so much worse is legal!

YES
There will be prostitutes whether its legal or illegal. In some parts of Europe they have prostitution agencies, whore houses, and individual prostitutes. Its more cleaner & healthier for the prostitutes = health benefits. If a female wants to sell her own body for money, then she should be able to. *Its her body right?????

Absolutely. For the reasons you said exactly. 

People are going to pay for sex regardless, so I can only see benefits by legalizing it.

It should be legal to sell what is legal to give away.

 The whores who market themselves right, make damn good money, while the women with too much pride to charge but not too much to sleep around get nothing but a reputation out of the deal.  Which group is degrading themselves more?  

Personally, I don't do either but if people are going to have mulitple sexual partners anyway, why not give them the option to legally choose to charge or not?
