I think yes. Now remember, my question is, should it be legalized? of course u can say it is wrong, or disgusting, or whatever, but be sure please to address the question of whether in America it should be legal, which I do not think is mutually exclusive from wrong or disgusting. There is supposed to be separation of church and state in America, so if your reasoning is only based on religion, I think you are a little short-changed. Also, the American notion of freedom was founded in John Locke's concept of "negative liberty", which essentially states that you can do whatever you want as long as it doesn't hurt other people. prostitution is just bartering as service for money. how is that an attack on other people's liberty? it may break up homes, but that is certainly not  prostitute's fault. homes are also broken up by affairs, and they are not illegal. if prostitution was legal, it would be monitored by the gov't and be safer too. ok,gimme your best shot!

I totally agree with you.  It happens anyways.  They are just trying to make a living for themselves, so why punish them for that?  If it is legallized, they should have to pay taxes on their earnings.

i agree. i see the point of separation of church and state. my father (a hardcore christan) is totally against prostitution and thinks it is discusting and immoral. but as far as i see it, if he doesnt deal with them then it is not his problem. i see prostitution as immoral also but it isnt in my face so let them do it all they want. that is freedom....so do we live in a FREE country or what. supposedly.

I know this is an old forum but....

My initial reaction is like most of yours: let the whores make their money.

But if prostitution was made legal, could you imagine what America would be like:

There would be "Cat Houses" opening up everywhere.  Which might not be so bad, now that I think about it...

but seriously, I think if made legal, it would evolve women into pieces of meat.  Women are just now getting close to the same respect as men, prostitution would take us back to the old days where women were nothing more than a piece of a__!

But, then again, if the women don't care...hey let'm do it!

What about male prostitutes? A sexist assumption.

it should be legalized. If someone wants to sell their body for money its not up to anyone but themselves.
