I strongly believe that we should legalize prostitution for a number of reasons, one it would mean that sex workers would have to register legally which would mean no more child prostitution, also it could lower the transmission of sexual diseases because if you have a major STD such as HIV/AIDS you wouldn't be allowed to become a sex worker. Two its a major industry and we could make a lot of revenue off it. Thirdly we're talking about two consenting adults here, Who are we to say what two consenting adults can or can not do?

 

One more thing technically prostitution is legal in parts of the world like the US but only for the rich, I mean what do you think some of these escorts are? Just high priced sex workers thats all.

Hi

 

I agree that prostitution should be legal and it is where I live, making it legal protects the sex worker and the client.

 

Sex work in NSW - Law and Justice Foundation

 

There are many reasons a person might seek the services of a sex worker, The person might be shy and not into the pick up joint scene, they may be disabled and are fed up with rejection, they might be lonely whatever the reason as long as its between 2 consenting adults, who am I to judge? 

 

Heres something you may find interesting.

 

Touching Base Inc is a charitable organisation, based in Sydney NSW Australia, that has been active since October 2000. Touching Base developed out of the need to assist people with disability and sex workers to connect with each other

Australia's more advanced than here.

I agree with legalization for many reasons, most having to do with the potential of cleaning out the seedier aspects associated with the profession.

If anyone cares to read, the below link shows both Federal and State by State penalties in the US. Pimps get slammed as they should.

Never availed myself of such services but did have a couple (read: platonic) female friends years back who were prostitutes and obviously wished it were legal.

Yeah its like I'm saying legalizing it would solve so many problems. But because of corrupt interest groups such as organized religion lobbing against it, who knows if will ever see it legalized in our lifetimes.

And good for Australia for legalizing it. :thumbup2:

  Sex work is legal, brothels are legal and regulated.
  Independent sex work is legal, but brothels are illegal; prostitution is not regulated

@ NickAu

 

So east Australia has fully legalized prostitution where west Australia hasn't fully legalized it.

Question do you have to be eighteen or twenty to become a sex worker in Australia?

What is the legal age for a sex worker?
 
The legal age for a sex worker is 18. Anyone over 18
may provide sexual services to a person over the age
of consent in exchange for money, goods or favours.
It is a serious crime to employ a person under 18 as a
sex worker.
3.
What is the legal age for the client?
 
Clients must be over 16. But someone under 18
cannot enter a sex services premises or ‘brothel’.
SWOP recommends that, for their own protection, sex
workers should be cautious and only accept clients
who are 18 or older.

I have to say I have never understood "Organised religion lobbying against it". After all, wasn't Mary Magdalene a prostitute ?  And she stood at the foot of the cross as Holy Scripture tells us.

Chris said.

"

No she was not a prostitute,

 

Mary of Magdala (her hometown, a village on the shore of the Sea of Galilee) was a wealthy woman in her own right, she and her family owned a  fleet of fishing boats around The Sea of Galilee and she supported Jesus and his ministry, It is also believed she was the wife of Jesus.
 
Mary Magdalene has the reputation in Western Christianity as being a repentant prostitute or loose woman; however, these claims are not supported by the canonical gospels. The identity of Mary Magdalene is believed to have been merged with the identity of the unnamed sinner who anoints Jesus' feet in Luke 7:36–50

 

Mary Magdalane is only mentioned 12 times in the bible the only other woman mentioned more is the Virgin Mary (  please don't get me started on that )

Nick, I believe you're right (from memory) but won't dip toes in religious waters here in case someone's ecclesiastic sword decides to cut off my foot. :)
Have a great New Year mate!

OK, I apologise to Mary Magdalene for mis-calling her. I have never claimed to expert knowledge on any religious matters, it would be invidious for an atheist to do that !

Lets not forget men are also sex workers.

No need to apologizes its a common misconception perpetuated by the Christian church.
