A comment posted here really got me wondering - why is prostitution illegal?
It is legal in many parts of the state I live in - Nevada, especially near the city I live in - Las Vegas.
I ask anybody reading to explain to me why prostitution is illegal.
Please - leave any and all comments below.
Having lived in Nevada for a long time, I have met prostitutes, and spoke with them. One thing that shocked many of them - is regulars. Yes, regulars. According to what I was told, many prostitutes have regular customers. None of them (their customers) want to engage in "odd" sex acts or role playing, they just want sex.
Now, I understand health and all that... But I sincerely get the feeling that if venereal diseases did not exist, it would still be illegal...
I also want to know what a whore is... I have heard way too many women getting called whores in my lifetime to really notice the correlation. Fact is, when I was in high school, a young girl was referred to as a whore - she was a virgin.
I don't get it.
I have my own hypothesis as to why prostitution is illegal... Before I make a fool out of myself, I'd like to get some more input.
Here is an except from wikipedia?
They argue that a system which allows legalized and regulated prostitution has very negative effects and does not improve the situation of the prostitutes;
such legal systems only lead to crime and abuse: many women who work in
licensed brothels are still controlled by outside pimps; many brothel
owners are criminals ...
Here is another excerpt from wikipedia:
In 1999, Sweden became the first country to make it illegal to pay for sex, but not to be a prostitute (the client commits a crime, but not the prostitute). A similar law was passed in Norway and in Iceland (in 2009). Canada (2014), France (2016) and the Republic of Ireland (2017) have also adopted a similar model to that of the Nordic countries (Denmark excluded).
Talk about serious hating on men... Legal to be a hooker, illegal to pay for one. Damn...
