OK, I am going out on a limb a bit here.
What are your views on prostitution?
Back in the 80s, I was hitch hiking to Florida and I got a ride with a woman who had been a prostitute in Amsterdam. She told me that she was appalled at how hookers here in America were treated. She felt that hookers provided a valuable service and kept the people safe. She always insisted that the John use a condom. I asked her if she would go bare for drugs and she answered me by asking "What good are drugs if I'm dead from aids?" Aside from tourists going there just for the hookers, most of her clients were just lonely guys who didn't have good luck with women. She offered me a place to sleep, we had safe sex, and in the morning she was gone. On the bedside table I found a 5 dollar bill, 2 condoms, and a note saying that she had a nice talk. I've never had a bad thing to say about hookers since then.
My first thought was nope, nope, nope. But after reading the comments, I guess I should keep a more open mind. I just think the risk of rape, abuse and death is just too high. Not to mention diseases. Honestly, I don't think I could be with a guy that has or does use prostitutes.
I feel this should be the sole decision of the prostitute. It's her merchandise and she should be free to peddle it to whomever wants to buy. Actually, she ain't selling anything, she is renting it out for a time period, right? Realistically. prostitutes serve an important purpose in life. I say license them and check their health regularly and let 'em do business.
I see nothing wrong with it. We all in some way use our bodies to earn money, it's just the "God fearing people" who make it out to be wrong. Legal prostitution will save some extra-marital affairs from ruining families and domestic violence actions, especially in where one partner wants sex but the other has lost urges for sex. It will lower STD's and maybe even some rape incidents, but not sure of the latter.
