Even where it's legal sex workers tend to face a lot of abuse. The better option is to address the social, psychological and economic problems that lead to people selling themselves.

Yes, trafficking is a problem, but there are many women who'd rather earn $300/hour having sex than $9.00/hr flipping burgers.

media.graytvinc.comView Full Size


Legalize brothels, tax them, require health department inspections and security, and 99% of the "problems" of prostitution go away. Street walkers and pimps stop getting business (because what would you prefer: A safe, clean, disease-free cozy place with a girl you know isn't going to drug or stab you, or a streetwalker with a pimp named slickback?)

I don't know why this is so difficult for society to understand. PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS ENGAGE IN PROSTITUTION and what's more, it serves an important public service for all genders and sexual orientations. There are ugly, lonely, old, shy, or disabled people whose lives are greatly improved by having access to human intimacy and interaction. If you take away the dangers (violence, drugs, disease) by legalizing and regulating, you have ZERO logical objections to it aside from religious hang-ups and personal moral codes that don't jibe with reality.

I have never paid for it, but I see the need for it in any society. I see the logic of allowing it and making it as discreet and safe as possible. I see the value in collecting tax revenue from it, too.

Let the brothels exist and you won't get hookers leaving condoms in your yard. It's really that easy.

We don't know if the residents care one way or another about Craigslist or Backpage.  I support legal prostitution, but I don't want street walkers turning tricks in my neighborhood.  I imagine I'm not the only person that fels that way.

TFA isn't so much about whether prostitution is or should be legal as it is over whether police enforce laws in poor neighborhoods the same way they do in well off neighborhoods.

Victims of sex trafficking aren't being paid $300/hour. Their pimps might make that, but the women make a small fraction, if anything at all (pimp takes "expenses" out of prostitute's cut, leaving little or nothing).
I'm sure there are prostitutes who do it on their own, and keep what they make, but trafficked sex workers aren't exactly free-market operators.

Citation?

It's possible that they are the same people, but the sign says 'in this neighborhood' which suggests they aren't waging so much of a moralistic battle as a NIMBY battle.

And there are problems in the Craigslist ads too.  There is still a fair amount of violence and crime associated with backpage stuff.  Personally, I'm all for legalizing and regulating.

As for condoms in the yard, short of legalizing and regulating, installing a sprinkler system with motion detectors would seem to be a decent solution, although that can be expensive.

People selling themselves for sexual purposes (iow, prostitutes of all types) is not per se a problem. Back in the nineteenth century, a Parisian cop inquired of arrested prostitutes why they engaged in the trade; a substantial fraction replied that they enjoyed sex so why not?

Prostitution is a problem when people are coerced into it, either by pimps or by economic necessity, but not when the prostitutes are acting according to their free wills.

The social stigma is not inconsequential but my point was that women are often abused by pimps and john's and that legalization doesn't necessarily fix that problem. More to the point, turning a blind eye to illegal prostitution on Craiglist or Backpage does nothing to protect women from abusive situations.

I think the problem is that just like the Drug War if it is made legal and the supply increases then the competition and demand for the product will drive down the profit margins of those professions to the same level as other service industries.  The criminals and politicians that are currently profiting off of this are not going to work harder for less money even if it saves lives and brings peace to communities dominated by violence.

interstellar_tedium: in an ideal women wouldn't have to sell their bodies but since world is far from ideal


Women aren't 'selling their bodies', they're providing a service that's in demand.

Is a guy doing manual labor 'selling his body'? Is a white collar worker 'selling his brain'? And if so, why is this less demeaning than a willing woman (or man for that matter) selling sex? Lots of people do jobs that they hate because they believe it's their best option to make a good living.

Legalize, regulate, de-stigmatize, and tax prostitution and 99% of your trafficking problems go away and you're mostly left with people who actually choose to be in the business.

Reminds me of this apartment I lived in, HS kids would make/smoke blunts in the back stairwell and leave the mess, advertising to the cops that lived in the building and building management what they were doing there.

Yes, trafficking is a problem, but there are many women who'd rather earn $300/hour having sex than $9.00/hr flipping burgers.


The kind that make $300 per hour aren't the ones farking clients in their cars.

I worked in a prostitute-laden part of town and the street walkers were a combination of addicts and insanity.  They'd use our lot at night and I'd have to sweep up used condoms every day.  Gross.

Telos: Voiceofreason01: The social stigma is not inconsequential but my point was that women are often abused by pimps and john's and that legalization doesn't necessarily fix that problem. More to the point, turning a blind eye to illegal prostitution on Craiglist or Backpage does nothing to protect women from abusive situations.

It helps if the prostitutes can go to the police and report the person who did it.


It does help but a lot of people treat legalization as a kind of magic bullet that suddenly makes everything better.

It DOES make everything better.

Not perfect, but definitely better.

Airsoft gun would be only semi illegal and much more American way of handling this.

doomjesse: Eddie Adams from Torrance: Yet these same people will fight to keep Backpage and Craigslist from allowing sex workers to advertise so they can operate out of a hotel where they won't bother a single person.

Except the person who changes the sheets.  Won't someone think of the housekeepers?


Mandatory extra tipping?

A closely related delusion is that marijuana itself is, as Voiceofreason01 put it, "a kind of magic bullet that suddenly makes everything better." It isn't. The effects of marijuana are far too inconsistent for it to be a reliable medication. Your reaction will vary from strain to strain, even from day to day with a single strain.

Fortunately, marijuana is a very safe drug to indulge in, in terms of its potential for lethality. Thus the advice "give it a try and see if it helps, it can't do any harm" is reasonable.

However, if (say) 93 year old Great-aunt Mildred has decided to see if marijuana helps her arthritis, it would be a good idea to provide her with a chaperone (of sorts) the first few times she smokes, until she gets used to its effects.

Use one of those to keep cats off the car. Sucks when I forget to turn it off first.

So many possible comments, but one of the first ones nailed it. WHY does this sign look like it's written in blood??? Did she not realize she could lay the sign flat before writing it? Is it a threat? Only had nail polish? Only had the hooker chained in your basement and a Buck knife?

Inquiring minds want to both know, and not know.

I wouldn't call it a delusion when it actually helps a lot of people. If anything, we really need to study it and start ensuring we can  get the consistency we get with other drugs... that comes from the processing and controlled dosage more than anything.

That said yeah it probably is good to have someone around the first few times you try it. I know one guy who hadn't partaken in years, took a hit and a few seconds later we just saw his head fall (he was sitting.) Apparently it hit him really hard and his muscles just "shut off" for a few seconds... it was pretty scary to watch but he was fine afterwards and still takes it regularly to help with some of his health issues.

I'm not so lucky, every time I've tried it I either get super dizzy/nauseous or it does nothing at all... :(

Cameras and mikes would be a nice deterrent. A loaded shotgun if they try to do something about it.

Actually, it blows.
Or squirts.
