mr0x: Shazam999: jaybeezey: Magorn: This right here is a lesson in modern economics.  Some commodities are so naturally plentiful that a profit can be made selling them only if an an aritfical market barrier is erected that severly limits the supply.

Once prosittuion becomes legal, the sex trade market is subject to "monopolistic competition"  which, despite its somewhat misleading name is the term for a lot of small businesses selling  a nearly indistinguishable product (think gas stations as an example)  the only thing they have to really compete on is price, so market pressures drive their prices to be nearly equal and as low as possible to allow the competitors to stay in business.  (the average gas station makes 1-2 cents per gallon on thier gas)

Since there are really no "wholesale" costs to the suppliers of sex, this means that their prices will freefall to levels that with eventually collapse the market as no one can make a living at it anymore

So you're saying that the market has decided that all women's mouths are the same and a better looking whore doesn't neccessarily make better money.

Yeah maybe that's because good looking girls don't want to prostitute themselves?  Jesus, have you seen the "pornstars without makeup" pictures?


I don't know what kind of pr0n you're watching but there are some gorgeous girls in the pr0n I'm watching.

anyone else think of all the women moving to Germany in hopes of having a Pretty Woman experience; some guy looking for sex finds love and takes her out of the hell of her life and makes a place in his heart for her...

/am I a romantic, or just twisted?
//Shazam99, that's not bree olson in the upper right.  Nice try, though.
///isn't Sunny Lane doing the porn thing in order to raise her standing for the prostitution circuit(a la bunny ranch)?

garandman1a: Supply and demand.

As a good conservative capitalist, I repeat LEGALIZE IT HERE in the US.

But I want some severe penalties for those a-holes who traffic in women. Plenty of women here willing to charge for it (or hell, give it away for free), as a trip to any nightclub will show you. Hopefully most people would rather pay more for a willing volunteer then get a savings from a sex slave.


You mean legalize it in your state, because it's already legal in one of the 49. Although I hear it doesn't really improve the situation for the actual sex workers.

Magorn: jaybeezey: Magorn:

Not to get too moralistic on the whole thing, but once you are reduced to buying sex from an anonymous women, you've kinda stripped out all the "ups& extras" that come with sex and a hole is frankly a hole.  (which is what I honestly don't get about street level prostitution-could it honestly feel any better than jerking it to some porn?)



Your mileage may vary and perhaps I'm doing it wrong, but the worst pussy I've ever had was still more pleasurable than the manual option.

Yes, it's Bree Olson.  Sorry to burst your bubble.

You could try using Google to verify.  I know, it's very hard to use.

I did... google fu is not a strong suit, but it still doesn't look like her.  Even in the "ugly" pics I found, she's rather farkable.  the upper right pic looks more like one of the comics on the daily show than ms Olson.  Agree to disagree, I guess.  I'll stay in my bubble...

Krieghund: The Speigel article that was the source of that story was interesting, but it seemed a little one-sided.

It seems like this is as much an immigration problem as anything.

I wonder if part of the reason the Swedish anti-prostitution laws are being so effective at reducing the number of prostitutes is that they're heading to Germany instead. I remember talking to a hooker in San Francisco that moved there from NYC because Giuliani was cracking down on them while Willie Brown was pretty much letting prostitution fly.



You TALK to your hookers? Dude, not cool. Now she's going to expect it from the rest of us...

dericwater: Pretty much true for most other non-synthetic drugs. Very easy to produce. Once they're legalized, the drug lords will be out of a job.


An econ-blogger I follow points out that the difference between the productivity of modern industrial-scale farming, vs. even sophisticated hidden grow-ops, is huge. As in fully legal pot being as cheap as sugar.

Been legal or at least decriminalized since at least the early 70's. Ask an old soldier about the Stuttgart Dreifarbenhaus.

10 euros instead of 40, woo, you're saving money!

...until you consider how many women there are who do something else for a living, and do the sex just for fun / because they like it, at no charge...
