Instead of having sex with the customer she would kill them and take their money. From her crime that she committed I can understand why it is illegal. The only problem with that not everyone wants to have sexual intercourse with a prostitute. It is basically like doing drugs or drinking underage or not there are people who want to do it then there are people who chose not to do it. I am not saying doing drugs and drinking is not a proud thing to do, but it is a human right
Sex trafficking is selling people under their will into prostitution; if prostitution is decriminalized and law enforcement is able to protect and get rid of corruption, then slavery would be stopped. Slavery is not constitutional and needs to be stopped. The decriminalization is also claimed to increase illegal and street prostitution; this illegal activity is going to exist either way. With the decriminalization, the people within the sex industry are more likely to turn in the illegal and street activity to
Although many people oppose prostitution because they say it is degrading, morally wrong, and dangerous that is not the entire story some women choose it as a way of life not because they have to but because it is the lifestyle that suits them. Women who choose to be prostitutes should not be denied their rights as human beings. First, prostitutes should not be denied their basic human rights just because of their chosen occupation. Many people are, “dismissing the entire sex industry as abusive and immoral which only exacerbates existing problems and tosses the concerns of sex workers aside”(Klinger 3). Although many people degrade sex workers there are organizations that help protect their rights and fight against the majority.
Prostitution should not be legalized because it is not a victimless crime, it will not decrease violence toward prostitutes, and it will not help the economy. Prostitution demoralizes women and selling a woman’s body should not be a livelihood. There is no resemblance of prostitution to ordinary employment in the ritual degradation of strangers using a woman’s body to satiate their urges. Women are often exploited not only by the men that purchase their services but also by their pimps. Some advocates argue that women in prostitution sell sex as a consenting adult, but those who do consent are typically part of a privileged minority, primarily white, middle-class, Western women in escort agencies, not remotely representative of the global majority.
Legalizing prostitution expands it, which also helps pimps, fails to protect women, and leads to more back-alley violence,” (Bazelon E, 2008). Adding to the concept of functionalist theory, although it is a crime prostitution is still around because it has served many important functions for people in society and our society in general. like I have mentioned earlier, prostitution is a source of income for some women who would be jobless without this crime. Since it's not only women in this practice it gives a sexual alternative for men to participate in the deviant act who are hiding their sexuality; or men who are not sexually satisfied. Prostitution plays a role in lowering the divorce rate; since there are many married men are unfortunately unhappy with the sex life they have with their wives.
However, we as a society we need to realize that prostitution has been in our society since the beginning of civilization and calling it immoral when sex workers are just trying to earn money to survive is morally wrong because they are not hurting anyone. As a matter fact, the majority of the women who enter prostitution do it because they are financially disadvantaged and have no other options. Furthermore, criminalizing someone because of their profession is immoral because it's how they are trying to survive. Providing people with a safe way to live their life is the moral thing to do. 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, so there really is no harm in legal prostitution.
–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.
While morality debates may rage on, it does seem rather strange that almost all state governments in the U.S. still prohibit what seems to be a harmless, victimless activity. The truth is, though, that prostitution is not as harmless or victimless as it seems. In fact, all too often the women involved in the trade are not even working out of their own free will. Aside from the brutal realities of forced prostitution, other problems lurk beneath the surface, as well; but could the harm associated with prostitution be alleviated through decriminalization? It is impossible to know for certain exactly what would happen were legal prostitution a reality, but in order to effectively evaluate the consequences of such a change, the potential dangers and benefits must be considered.
Since what they are doing isn’t legal, the prostitutes obviously would hesitate in calling the police, therefore resulting in even worse situations. On the other hand, if it is regulated the government can have a system of protection towards the women that prohibits mistreatment, which decreases the rates of violence among them. Also, if the sex industry does expand, not only will it have safer precautions, but also more benefits for the women and the
Those who want to decriminalize it see it as making the conditions safer for those who choose prostitution. They think that women then have more options and will be safer if prostitution is legal. Those who wanted to keep the laws that criminalized prostitution did not blame those who were selling themselves, but they blamed the buyers and the abusers. Both sides address the legal aspect. However, those who supported the decriminalization of prostitution did not deeply address those who were pressured into it and were not happy with being sex workers.
