None of the above.

Promiscuous sex is a public health concern, much like needle sharing and drunk driving. The physical, mental, and psychological consequences of prostitution stand to place too great a burden upon society to legalize. You have to understand that shows like Taboo do not always provide you with all of the information. Prostitution was seen as problematic long before Christ walked the earth so you can't blame the Christians and some Puritan prudishness. Governments are implemented to protect the interests and well-being of society and the greatest number of its members. Societies throughout history have viewed it as a threat and have acted.

Want evidence? Look at the 60s and free love and all that. The fulfillment people expected to find in sleeping around just wasn't there. Instead they felt more empty and alone than ever. There is plenty written on it, although it doesn't get much play on shows like Taboo.

Hey I like sex as much as the next guy, but to me it's not worth getting an STD or experiencing the let down after a night of meaningless sex.

This usage is ahistoric, simplistic, and trite: white Protestants in the U.S. comprise myriad national backgrounds and denominations.
2) Baptists and Methodists are about as forward thinking as you an get. Oh, without completely going against your own scripture. The Episcopals got that one.
3) Yeah. Spot- on. Just like pot.

ya, its ridiculous.. Ours is practically the ONLY civilized country in the world where it is not legal (many have rules about it, but its legal).

I saw something on TV a while back about teenage prostitution and pimps.. And the woman hated prostitution.. To her it was the worst thing a woman could do.. And she railed about how if it was legal that all the teenage problems would be so much worse.. WHAT BULLSHIT !! Legalizing it and controlling it would be by FAR the best way possible to get teenagers OUT of it. There is a reason why its called the oldest profession and its NOT going anywhere any time soon. So why not make it legal and control it and get taxes off it and get the teenagers out of it..

legalizing WORKS.. I remember when I was a kid.. alcohol was legal and it took an act of god for me to get my hands on some when I was way underage.. (13/14).. But drugs?? Hell, they were already illegal so I could get ANYTHING I wanted ANY TIME. You want kids NOT to have drugs.. MAKE THEM LEGAL !!! lol..

The problem I have with your argument is that promiscuous sex is LEGAL. It's charging for it that's illegal.

it's also not the governments job to keep me away from that "letdown" after a night of meaningless sex. I'm pretty sure lots and lots of people are pretty happy with lots and lots of meaningless sex.

I think society has deemed it a problem simply due to religion.

As for physical, mental, and psychological effects.... why is abortion legal? It's OK to rip a fetus out from a uterus for money... but not OK to stick a wang up there for money? Alcohol and gambling provide for a ton of anguish and despair... but both are legal in most states.


Then again... That's just me.

You can goto a brothel where all sex acts are video taped and mark as making a porn that you take with you...it could be a shity cam corder as long as its recorded and labled as home porn service...come in and make a porn movie.

Or have prostotutes walking around with camera phones and asking johns...would you like to make a xxx porn film? $100...yea? ok lets goto this motel... film it on a cheesey thunb drive and give it to the john...

thats a serious work around the law... home movie xxx porn service.

If i had balls id try it.
That thought has crossed my mind. You would need to turn a pretty good profit to keep lawyers on constant retainer. It might not be illegal... but I'm guessing you would be harassed a lot by law enforcement.
Might be more trouble than it's worth.

- How would you explain the numerous countries in Europe where prostitution is legal and regulated?

- Not necessary so. There are many countries/regions where prostitution has NO stigma or taboo and is seen as a normal trade and regular part of society. Typically, these areas had little to no Christian influence to start (or when the Christians tried to convert them during the crusades - they politely kicked their asses out the country and sent them packing.)

And not just "uncivilized" nations ... Japan for example has a long and revered history for Geisha girls. Now, yes, Geisha was more than just sex - it was a craft of being the ultimate hostess and pleasing your male guests, but still enough it was prostitution.


The 60's was an age of sexual hedonism and exploration of sexuality as well as drugs. The movement encouraged over indulgence and very little regulation or control both self and/or government.

Doesn't have to due with legalization of prostitution. As a matter of fact, they would have hated the legalization of prostitution - saying something like "love is free and the government shouldn't control "my" body, what I want to do with it, who I want to do it with and how."



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

I think the smoke screen that's thrown up is the Morality thing. But, when it gets down to it, just like during the Prohibition Era with alcohol... There were plenty of "Independents" with stills, regular clients, distribution points (ie. speak easys, underground liquor clubs, etc.) that had to be shut down by or brought under the regulation of the Govt. The major oldstanding liquor makers today are the ones that paid up the "tribute" to continue to operate.

It's easier to make something illegal and punish the few that will break the law, than to make the tremendous investment in legalizing it. Some of the main issues:

1) Regulate / Quality Control the product to deem it safe for consumption;
2) Place a tax on the product to ensure financial support for Regulation / Quality Control;
3) Control of access by consumers (even though every woman/man has the product, how can the Govt know when it is being consumed);
4) Will the "Industry" be popular amoung the Majority of voters?

Then again, I could be completely wrong!
