–Unknown Second, prostitution should be something of free choice, not to be stopped by the government. People have sex all the time; it is a natural part of human nature. Why should something like that be controlled and stopped? It’s okay for a woman to have sex with a man she hardly knows after he buys her dinner and drinks or jewelry or other trinkets, why is cash currency treated so differently? Prostitution should be a business where a service is offered for a price.
Firstly, I have researched America’s view point on prostitution where this is illegal (except in Nevada) since 1915 and leads to conviction. One fear of legalisation is that it will result in more sex workers than necessarily would have. Prostitution undermines human rights and dignities. My source (1) quotes “legalized prostitution cannot exist alongside true equality for women” this is against the legalisation due to exploitation and abuse of women. Empirical research studies show that prostitutes encounter physical violence such as being cut with knives, verbal abuse and have high death rate of homicide (Farley, Baral, Kiremire, & Sezgin, 1998).
I find it alarming that it is illegal to charge what can be freely dispensed, the sex work is no more immoral then being a worker in a distilling industries or a tobacco company. In my mind I do believe that the pros outweigh the cons in the argument against prostitution. It’s a situation that can be beneficial for ever one involved, the potential for tax revenue is astronomical. Prostitution should be legalized and tightly controlled by the government to create the best scenario for one the oldest profession on this blue earth that will never seize to exist.
Pornography and Prostitution have much in common, both include compensated consenting adults engaging in sexual activity; however, pornography is legal, and prostitution is not. Webster’s dictionary defines prostitution as “the act or practice of engaging in promiscuous sexual relations especially for money”. Although pornography is somehow widely accepted, it is essentially the same concept as prostitution, both involving consenting adults paid to perform sexual acts. While prostitution is controversial, states making prostitution legal, and equal to pornography, would have positive effects on the nation’s economy by making the profession safer, decreasing the crime rate, and helping the government financially. A mounting concern to legalizing prostitution is the health implications that it causes.
I’m aware that in our society, there are those who have the sentiment that prostitution is inherently immoral, however, I would argue that universally, exchanging services for money is a business ideal that is considered permissible in every society and even encouraged in most. Thus, there really is no harm in legal prostitution as long as no one is harmed in the process and everyone involved is upholding the
Prostitution can be defined as the performance of sexual acts for payment (Sheldin 2014). It is the oldest profession in the history of the world. It has been present in most civilizations that have ever existed. In the U.S.A prostitution is illegal except in certain counties in Nevada. Prostitutes are convicted if caught for exercising their profession.
There are “17 counties within the state of Nevada, and only 11 of them have legalized prostitution. Legalized prostitution is restricted to the rural counties in Nevada. Among the rural counties in the state, those with legalized prostitution have rape rates in 2007 that are over five times larger than rural counties without legalized prostitution” (Ruggieri, Miethe, Hart). Legalized prostitution does not stop rape, and actually makes the problem worse.
Just because some people are uncomfortable with prostitution does not mean that they have to partake in it. Today it’s illegal to prostitute, tomorrow it may be illegal to sell your own ideas and inventions. It’s time to stand up and stop letting the government control us
She thinks that every human has the right to make decision about his or her own body which is exactly what the Libertarian party thinks. Kelly believes that sex work should be made legal and that they should have the same rights as any worker in other fields. This blog post represents a feminist view on prostitution. (Bell,
Proposers for criminalization argues that decriminalizing prostitution protects the pimps, but not only that it will also protect women sex workers. Decriminalization will protect sex workers from exploitation, trafficking and violence from these pimps. Laws will be passed against all these brutal acts against women sex workers which will deter men clients and pimps from doing any devious act against prostitutes. In the article “Buying Sex Should Not Be Legal” by Rachel Moran stated that, in the US prostitution is worth at least $14 billion a year. Moran said, “Most of that money doesn’t goes to these girls,” but if is was legal the law enforcement and the government would also protect workers from being underpaid and
