  •  This is why Prostitution Should Be Legal (5+ / 0-)

    This is why prostitution should be legal.  You can have regulations to make sure people are taking the necessary precautions.

    Make it like Nevada where it is only legal in brothels and not on the street (but change it so the prostitutes don't have to pay 50% of their earnings + room and board to the owner)

    This way you cut down on child and sex trafficking since people will have a safe and legal place to do it without resorting to the streets. The authorities and brothel owner can check to make sure no one is using drugs, that they are having safe sex, and is STD free.  The authorities can then check to make sure no one is there against their will.

      I'm not there with you, but that's largely because my personal experience still evokes images of a "sex trade" rather than a "sex worker." And while prositution is legal in some counties in Nevada, there is still a lot of trafficking in Vegas and the legal trade isn't all it's cracked up to be.

      Also, I'm not sure how you'd enforce condom use regulations.

      When God gives you lemons, you find a new god.
