Managers would oversee the workplace to make sure that everything runs smoothly. When a brothel opens up, it creates not only more jobs for women, but also for men as the managers.

Since the pros outweigh the cons, prostitution should be legalized.
But the fact that it could happen during regular intercourse should completely nullify that argument in favor of legalizing. Criminalizing prostitution is a way for slowing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases; it is not a way to confront the problem of STD’s. We saw this quite clearly in the time of alcohol prohibition in this country. “Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. –Unknown Second, prostitution should be something of free choice, not to be stopped by the government.
A point that needs emphasizing since so many people still believe that the government should not interfere with their life choices. Considering that it goes against the 1st Amendment, why shall someone not do as they please. A portion of the United States believe that legalizing prostitution would bring down the percentage of people being raped. It can save kids’ lives that are being forced to be
In accordance to Constant, prostitutes have the right to choose to be a prostitute. The law currently does not accept their industry because it is centered around sexual activity outside of marriage; but if these men and women want to have sex whenever they please, the government needs to protect their individual freedom to select and participate in their occupation of choice. The government should protect these workers from getting abused, like protection other industries receive, instead of declaring it is against the correct morals and therefore is illegal. “Our freedom must consist of peaceful enjoyment and private independence.” (Constant 5). The prostitutes are choosing their private independence to work in the sex industry, but they are not having peaceful enjoyment because their work is considered “immoral” and illegal.
For some women it is a legal and without risk of penalty and for others the risk of their very freedom by partaking in the act.

Made me see the darker side of the world, the side you don’t see on television the side you don’t hear people talk about, you never hear about it on the news. I met some really bad people and met some very good people. Just make me think that it would be so easy to do what those girls do, can’t be that hard I like sex I like attention men give me.
In no way is there a victim in what prostitutes do, of course you could argue that the spreading of diseases could be a victim. But the fact that it could happen during regular intercourse should completely nullify that argument in favor of legalizing.

Preventing Sex Trafficking in Europe Most people do not associate slavery with sex trafficking, but when you think about it, they are a lot alike. Sex trafficking is similar to slavery as it violates human’s basic rights. People are involuntarily exploited sexually and are victims of physical and psychological pain. These people are used for their bodies in order to gain profit for their owners. The victims of sex trafficking are striped of the right to be free and deserve to have a quality of life.
With regulation we can start eliminating the terrible effects of illegal prostitution including: Violence, drug, STD’s and unwanted children. Prostitutes may not be morally acceptable to everyone, but nonetheless they should be protected. Prostitutes should have the same security and regulation other businesses should have. Decriminalization wouldn’t necessarily promote prostitution or make it seem like prostitution is a route everyone should be taking but allows the protection for sex workers currently in our society. With the current statistics on HIV/AIDS and other STD’s with prostitutes, the implements of brothels and proper testing we can help reduce the spread of these diseases.

The spread of diseases are no more commonly spread though the regular acts of sex then in prostitution.
