It is claimed that legalization will create safer work environments in a lot of ways. Prostitutes would be treated as any other worker and would therefore receive benefits. Facilities also tend to mean cleaner working spaces and taking prostitutes off the streets. Prostitution is a sexual career that has not been solved and that has always surface, so instead of alienating the workers they need to be protected by the law. Catherine Healy, National Co-ordinator of the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective accounts that “[s]ince the change in the law, people feel they can approach the police and report violence.
Since the practices are legal, a good relationship with local police allows for more protection as they can report any customer that gets out of control. These brothels themselves provide protection by grouping prostitutes together, by bringing together new and experienced prostitutes it allows for training to happen and better protection practices to be learned. Many brothels restrict leaving while on duty and to provide services outside a building due to lack of
I think it is also heightening the playground for serial killers an other sociopaths to take out their frustrations and urges on innocent women. Another problem I find with illegal prostitution is that Pimps protect their hookers from the law, and from other pimps. If there was no law against it, then pimps would not exist, nor would they control the actions and moneys of their "employees" with violence or any other coercion. Prostitution arrests is rampid and have been proven to cause long-term increases in crime and drug abuse in society. What we need is a sensible solution to these problems like allowing specific places where prostitution and soliciting are designated and can be in a controlled and safer environment.
Liberator states that our primal desires should not be ignored or suppressed, but instead should be managed. If this is the case, then should our first instincts to lie, cheat, steal, and kill should also be managed? No. Managing these things, and not suppressing them, means that we are making it legal to rob stores, lie about it, and kill anyone who disagrees with our reasons as to why we?ve committed the crime. Not only that, but if we make prostitution legal, it is possible that there could be an overflow of prostitutes, that would create larger drug chains, which could ruin our countries credibility as a safe place to live.
Prostitution is one of the most controversial subjects in the United States. There are many pros and cons to this subject. First, Prostitution shouldn’t be a crime because it is a victimless crime. In no way is the prostitute committing a crime on society, of course you could argue that the spreading of diseases could be a crime. But the fact that it could happen during regular intercourse should completely nullify that argument in favor of legalizing.
They will have a greatly decreased chance of contracting disease if they turn down clearly infected clients, and make all clients, whether clean or not, wear condoms. If they were working outside of the law they would feel less incline to do this and would then be at great risk for contracting disease. Illegal prostitutes actually have motives for not using condoms since in cities like New York, “cops were actually using condoms found on women as evidence in criminal prostitution cases against them” (Fuchs). This practice provides the perfect stage for STIs to go wild and spread like fire, with HIV being in the forefront and becoming an even larger epidemic then it is. Giving them labor rights will give them the ability to unionize and fight for their rights together, transferring the power in the business to the workers instead of their bosses, like pimps and brothel owners.
The issue of legalizing prostitution is not a simple one and would come with many restrictions and provisions. The fact remains that in this day and age sexuality is no longer taboo and if the transaction is even two consenting adults it should be a legitimate, legal profession. Prostitution has been rejected by polite society as scandalous and grotesque, yet it continues to behind closed door and on dark street corners. Some think that the legalization of prostitution would only further to degrading society and would create a haven for human trafficking. Sex is thought to be the most intimate form of human interaction, therefore many believe it should not be undermined and traded as a commodity.
The paper will then conclude that the decriminalisation of sex work has positively altered the working environment of sex workers, but that this improvement is limited due to the public stigma that remains attached to the industry. Background Sex workers provide sexual services in exchange for money and other valuable goods. In New Zealand, this exchange takes place at massage parlours, brothels, escort agencies, and on the streets (Abel, Fitzgerald & Bruton 2007). Though sex work itself was legal prior to 2003, the criminalisation of activities surrounding prostitution made it impossible to be a sex worker without violating the law (Jordan 2005). While the client could legally buy sex, sex workers could suffer legal consequences as legislation made soliciting, brothel keeping, and living on the earnings made through prostitution illegal (Abel 20014).
Many prostitutes will become drug addicts to better deal with the illegal sex acts they are performing, hoping that prostitution will only be temporary. Unfortunately when this situation occurs, prostitutes will quit selling their bodies but cannot kick the drug habit and in turn have to continue to solicit themselves in order to continue their addiction to illegal crimes; this is a depressingly vicious cycle. Both illegal drug use and illegal prostitution are part of public order crimes. Public order crimes are thought out crimes that often make society an innocent victim. Rather than just affecting an individual, public order crimes happen to the society that you reside within.
Should A Woman 's V-Spot Be Regulated By The Government When people think prostitution they think of sex for money, diseases, crime, work place violence such as rape and also robbery. In every way they are right. Prostitution has become one of our major issues in the U.S. It has caused spreading of disease, unplanned pregnancy, deaths and robbery. You would think that with all the issues given with prostitution that we should continue with its illegalization, but that’s incorrect.
