Unions would probably be the best enforcer of the industry. They would help ensure that under the radar would stay off the streets. Third, the physical health of prostitutes and their clients would be at a much smaller risk if prostit... ... middle of paper ... ... just accept that it has and always will happen and instead of trying to force it away, just take it in and do what you can to make it safe. Instead of putting millions of dollars into stopping this consensual act, the money saved and made from the legalization of prostitution can be spent on fighting child prostitution. Prostitution has overcome every attempt by man to abolish it and even now we can’t stop it.
Prostitution, the act of providing sexual services to a person in exchange for money, goods, or other services, is referred to as one of the oldest professions. Currently, out of the United States, it is only legal in one state, Nevada. Laws prohibiting prostitution may be the oldest example of government regulation. In a free society, however, these laws are inappropriate because they violate the basic rights and liberties, stated in the Constitution, of the individuals involved. While some individuals are morally opposed to the legalization of prostitution, it would have many benefits if legalized including: protection for both parties involved, less violent crimes, and it would benefit the economy.
Just because sex was paid for in one instance, I do not think that it ought to be ou... ... middle of paper ... ...that prostitution should be legalized. For some time, casual sex without commitment was a matter of law. It was illegal. But today, we are smart enough to understand and believe that what two consenting people do behind closed doors is their business and their business only. It is not a crime to make awkward artwork or read obscure literature, but for a long time it was illegal, punished with death and torture.
Although prostitution is a service industry like any other in which people exchange skills for money or other reward, it is typically regarded as a deviant way to make a living and is illegal in many countries. Even so, prostitution still exists through out the world. Since no law has ever succeeded in banning prostitution, why don’t government make good use of prostitution by legalizing it? It is undeniable that legalizing prostitution can help to solve national and social problems in several ways. By legalizing prostitution, employment crisis can be solved in some extend.
No longer will a sex worker have to worry about being arrested or harassed. Safe sex practices make both the sex worker and the customer healthier. Most importantly, prostitutes are no longer condemned to a criminal record for resorting to a desperate means of income. Legalizing prostitution will benefit society. Most importantly it will benefit the sex workers who have suffered from abuse, poverty and criminalization.
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.
Prostitution has been a part of our world's culture since the beginning of time, and is the world's oldest profession. Prostitution is defined by the Webster dictionary as “the act or practice of engaging in promiscuous sexual relations especially for money.” If prostitution were legalized, there would a reduction in sex crimes, American citizens would have the freedom to choose any profession within the sex industry and it would provide economic benefits for the local and federal governments, as well as the population. According to Jacqueline Barnhart in her book, “The Fair but Frail,” there is an increase of sex crimes in locations where prostitution was made legal. She also argues legalized prostitution promotes and contributes to sex trafficking. Barnhart argues that even though countries, such as Germany and the Netherlands, have gone through great extents to make prostitution legal and sex trafficking a high crime, in the end, it does not work (Barnhart, 53).
This would make it a more supervised practice, so it wouldn’t spread AIDS and herpes and other diseases. The prostitutes could be tested just like they are tested in places where it is legal, such as Las Vegas. The cold hard fact is that by putting a restriction on the solicitation of sex the government essentially is putting a restriction on ones personal freedoms. A state of being, which many Americans expect. Not only that, the United States is known for and based upon the idea of its individual freedoms for each citizen, yet in some forms, it still ceases to exist.
Prostitution should be legal in the U.S because the government can help regulate the spread of STD’s between customer and prostitutes by periodically being tested, reduce violence/rape, can benefit the economy, and sex workers can get labor laws. The solution may sound absurd but the logic behind it is very sensible; because prostitutes fear getting caught by law enforcement,
Guidelines are also easily set up to have tests of sexual trasmitted diseases and proper education for prostitutes for the job that they are entering. Like marijuana legalization, legalization of brothels will allow for the service that will not go away to be safer for everybody involved, instead of it happening behind the scenes with people being too scared to complain or ask for help because then they would be prosecuted.
