    I am all for regulation, but it should be legal regardless.

      Re-read what you just said. You're contradicting yourself. Do you think it would be any less regulated as it is now in Nevada, if it were legal everywhere? The fact that it's illegal makes the whole thing much more dangerous/ridiculous. A bunch of hookers with STD's already do roam the corners. Make it legal, and you drastically reduce crime at the same time. You take it from out in the open and isolate it to defined areas. You require the women to hold a license and be tested regularly. You effectively eliminate most of the problems currently surrounding prostitution with the stroke of a pen.

        Girls can get paid to screw guys in Movies...

        But A real guy can't pay to get screwed.

        Porn is legalized prostitution.

          That's BS. Prostitution has been legal in my country for a long time now and we actually have less problems than you guys do, since once it's legal prostitutes become employers or entrepreneurs, hence pay taxes and fall under laws that concern legal work. Legalized prostitution is simply making sure you can regulate it, instead people who make it illegal sweep the problem under the rug.

          But I'm getting way too political.

              Imagine the revenue this country would bring in on prostitution taxes. Fix Social Security.

                  How did I contradict myself? If it were legal everywhere, any chick could do it and not have to worry about getting busted. If it remains the way it is in Vegas the difference would be that a customer soliciting an illegal hooker would be assuming the risk that she could have an STD, so it would be the customers own damn fault for being stupid.
                  Make it legal and reduce crime, wow, thats brilliant; lets make murder, drugs, and rape legal too, that will reduce crime as well. As for isolating it to defined areas so it can be controlled, that is kinda what its like in Vegas, so I guess we agree on that part.

                    Yeah bud. Read that last sentence. Where is prostitution legal? Parts of Nevada. So look at how it's done there to find out what it would be like if it were legal everywhere. 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?

                    Please explain to me how any girl can't just go out and be a prostitute as it is. Then explain to me why the crime rate wouldn't drop if it became legal. 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.

                      yes, it would.


                      Prostitution is a pathetic thing to be involved in. What kind of man has to pay to get sex? a pathetic one.


                      Prostitution is a property/quality of life crime more then anything. would you want a bunch of skanky ass drug addict whores hanging out in front of your house waiting to be picked up?

                      Beyond that, its simply wrong.... losers who have to pay for sex dont deserve to get laid.

                        That is the way it currently is. If it were regulated, it would be isolated to designated establishments. Like casinos for gambling. You don't see dudes playing craps out in the street when you walk the Vegas strip.

                        Legalizing prostitution would effectively eliminate the black market. There would be no reason for skanky hookers to hang out in front of your house because there would be no john to solicit her.

                          Just to clarify for several people in this thread, prostitution isn't legal in Las Vegas. There are just tons of loopholes and it isn't enforced at all. I like Duckseason's Prohibition analogy, Las Vegas for prostitution today is like the Chicago of Prohibition times.

                            Yea but then you would have pimps going out looking for girls to pimp out. Would you want your girlfriend or sister to be asked to be a prostitute?


                            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.

                              If you own your body shouldn't you be allowed to sell it? :p As interesting as your moral code is, you can't impose that on everyone. Legalizing prostitution would make prostitution as a whole safer.

                              Anyway wouldn't legalizing the profession increase the number of women who would choose to work as a prostitute, so why would pimps need to find more?

                                No. Again, that is how it already is with the current legal climate. You wouldn't have pimps. You'd have establishments such as the bunny rancgh that would be tightly regulated. Much in the same manner of liquor stores or casinos. Try opening an underground casino in Vegas. See how many people show up. I already said this. The bottom line is that legalization would effectively eliminate the current black market.

                                The desire for sex is a fact of life. Some lames will always feel the need to pay for it, but I doubt legalization will alter the demand much at all. And just because you don't think it's right doesn't mean the guy paying for it agrees with you. It's really none of your business what another man chooses to spend his money on.

                                Well, all I can say is get used to it. It's been going on throughout the history of humanity. Nobody said the world was an ideal place.
