CNSNews.com reports that "A report issued by the United Nations-backed Global Commission on HIV and the Law recommends that nations around the world get rid of 'punitive' laws against prostitution -- or what it calls “consensual sex work” -- and decriminalize the voluntary use of illegal injection drugs in order to combat the HIV epidemic." Do you think prostitution should be legalized worldwide?

    I have never and will never pay for a prostitute.

    I don't even like strippers.

    That being said, I want to decrease the size and scope of government even for a disgusting industry that is harmful to all involved.

    How will this end child molestation?

    Sandusky will pay a hooker to dress like a little boy?

    I've always wondered this one. Often you'll hear discussion of child abuse and Catholic Priests not being allowed to marry. It doesn't compute. Just because we're talking about a sex related topic doesn't mean everything goes together.

    The inhuman urge to do things to kids is radically different than the urge to have sex with another adult. My wife travels for work a lot. Not once has she been out of town where I've thought an 8 year old boy would hit the spot right about now. Thats not nearly how it works.

    Superman touched on what I was thinking with the Catholic Church. Priest who are charged for molestation usually use sexual deprivation as an excuse. How it would helped them I don't know but if they claim not having sex is the problem maybe giving them an outlet to fix that problem would help but then again as pointed out their probably just sick in the head.

    Why does everyone use Catholic priests as an example every time? 1%. 1 frigging percent and people act like it's an epidemic. Not like any percent is ok, but public education it's 3 times as much. Yet for them it's the exception and they go back to being steeped in nobility, and the Church is intrinsically evil in spite of their charity work. Perhaps it's society drowning itself with perversion everywhere you look, if not that, having to sit in confessionals to hear about all of it. Or perhaps people trying to convert the Church into Secular Humanist 21st century philosophy. Keep the title, change the tenets. Works just as well. Sorry to go yelling at you instead of the other guy, but yours mentioned why or excuses. Yah, they need to vet their priests better. Then again, it might just be hopeless because I think some folks love the fact that that can be used against them. Some people TRY to convert them. Some people WANT them to fail badly so nothing will hold deviance back. That's why they're attacked to changing their policies or infiltrated ("burrowing from within").

    It would decrease some of those things, but not all of that is always caused by unavailability of voluntary adult sexual relations.

    You must be joking? You think pedophiles want used filthy women who have been with hundreds of men? Nor will it end rape. You are woefully uneducated. Either that or just looking for an excuse to visit hookers legally.
  • Jimmy ☆ElenaD... 2012/07/26 12:14:28

    First of all I didn't know pedophiles have standards. Secondly I assume people rape because they can't have consensual sex. Thirdly I don't really understand prostitution half the world is male and the other half is female and people still have to pay for sex.

    But, not because the U.N. recommends it. But, because consenting adults are free to buy or sell their "talents" in a free-market system, whatever their "talent" might be. The price of YOUR freedom is that someone might exercise THEIR freedom in a way that you find morally repugnant. IMHO, it's a small price to pay for liberty.

    If it wasn't a criminal act, that would take the pimps out of the picture. We have too many things that are against the law. I personally haven't used the services of a prostitute, but it doesn't mean I think it should be illegal.

    Once again; a private contract/transaction, between two or more consenting adults.

    If we are smart enough to decide on what our major should be in college; thereby determining what our occupation will be for the rest of our lives; I think we are smart enough to determine on whether we should or should not have sex.

    It has never been illegal in Nevada...and it works for them. It's a way of making everything safer for everyone - the hookers, the johns, and the wives at home.

    And it has been illegal for virtually the whole time! Just goes to show that you can not legislate morality. I have always heard that saying, I wonder what the first was?

    In New Zealand they praise prostitutes who pay mortgages by putting them on the front page of their newspaper and proudly saying she is a mother of two and earns about $45000 by way of prostitution and getting a government benefit/DOLE to survive. While people who earn lawfully are bankrupted to go into prostitution because of their colour and race.
    The above woman is a blond haired woman too and was pictured with her kids and also glorified that she is a part-time student earning a decent life to pay her bills.
    So legalising prostitution will only give banks and other companies a better way to retrench and make people earn quick bucks by selling their bodies.
    It happens in Corporate toilets any way, married men and women cheating out there and then going home as if nothing has taken place. If you happen to observe it, you equated to living their lifestyle any way and retrenched. Happened to me, twice.

    Art, as is typical, I don't agree with all of your opinions, but cannot fault your logic.

    Government (worldwide) has been expanding at an alarming rate for far too long.
