Ok. How's that gonna work practically?
Sure. You're right you could fully regulate the prostitution sector so that virtually everyone in it are aware mentally healthy adults.
Buuut then what do you do with the people who aren't in the official sanctioned prostitution? The ones most vulnerable and where consent is most questionable are ones like street prostitutes.
Sooo,what do you do? Do you declare that prostitution illegal? Then how do you stop it? How do you keep the system then becoming their abuser too?
And if it's legal you're back to the same problem again.
My suggestion is what I've suggested before. Have all prostitution be legal but with outreach programs to help those not giving exactly free and enthusiastic consent to get out.
Maybe decriminalize it first and go from there?
regardless of what you're doing with that money, it's still a job - isn't it? i don't ask anybody what they're doing with their paycheck - why should prostitution be any different?
ive had a lousy BJ before so there's definitely an art to the profession....and i don't want the cracked out hooker either - i'd like to see the menu plz
