    "Prostitution is a combination of sex and free enterprise, which of these two are you opposed to?"

    I rest my case.

    Well, everyone has already iterated my rationale, so I won't get specific or redundant. I also think legalizing prostitution would be good because it makes the industry more regulatable and thus safer for both workers and clients.

    Sex is sex is sex is sex. Tell me what part of sex for money is so off putting?

    It's not about sex for money. It's about sex with thousands of different people and generally what I see as a self-destructive life-style.

    If you didn't want someone to disagree with you, why bother making a thread for discussion?

    It's not that he doesn't want you to disagree with him, it's that he wants you to explain why down to every gritty detail.

    It's a lot easier for someone to say "sex is sex is sex is sex" with no backup argument than it is for me to explain the tiny intricacies of how I think and percieve. Just call me old fashioned and be done with it.

    because of the way prostitutes are treated? because to some it's a symbol of commitememnt and relationship and seeing it treated as a cheap item to sell is heart-breaking/disturbing? How about those that don't have a choice? that submit to any man in sight no matter how dirty or cruel or abusive for money?

    I mean, all that you have in the end is your body and mind (some don't have a mind and some don't really have a body to call their own, thinking of the metally or physically disabled). To give one of those to be abused or even just used by someone else without any trust in that person? Do you let people use your things? the things that are precious to you? you let your sibling borrow your brand new ____ ? even if they offered to pay you a little? rent it? still, somethings you just don't want to share except with those closest to you. That's why I find prostitution disturbing. I wouldn't want to give my body up to someone I didn't trust or like, perhaps that I hated.

    Its only self destructive if you lose control and focus. I know for some (and potentially alot more with legalization) its a legitimate skill and some enjoy it. Imagine it as any other trade, like stunt doubles for example. A dangerous, life-on-the-edge career for adrenaline junkies. No one complains about them trying to kill themselves for a buck. Ask any one of them, they do it for the rush.

    Putting religion/morals aside, I'm still against it. There are a lot of STD's already, legalize it, more women will do it/see it as something acceptable, more people going to them since they don't fear the law, more diseases, more children brought up (or aborted) into a family they wouldn't choose.
