Prostitution has overcome every attempt by man to abolish it and even now we can’t stop it.
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.

This would increase the quality of police protection, reduce waste in the judicial system, decrease the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, and increase federal tax revenue. By legalizing and regulating the act of prostitution, the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) will decrease. Opponents of legalization believe that STD’s will increase substantially. However, licensed brothels will be required to enforce testing for STD’s. Implementing weekly sexually transmitted disease testing for all licensed workers will reduce the likeliness of spreading diseases to multiple partners.
Legalizing Prostitution In the article 'Legalized Prostitution' the author, Mark Liberator, shares his views on legalizing prostitution. He believes because of women's specialized roles in society, they should be allowed to use sex as a service that can be bartered for goods and money, and by using these specialized roles, the author explains that allowing prostitution in the United States could lower a majority of murder and rape cases, and can decrease the amount of suicides and divorces. By making prostitution legal, Liberator also thinks that it will allow law enforcement to respond faster to more important crimes, help women that use prostitution as a career path, and will prevent teens from being trapped into prostitution. Though Liberator states his case strongly, and has statistics that help prove his point, his logic has holes that could even make cocaine, heroin, and other illegal drugs legal. Liberator states that our primal desires should not be ignored or suppressed, but instead should be managed.

Prostitution should not be a crime as the US takes it, because the prostitutes are not committing an inherently harmful act. While there is an argument that there will be spread of diseases, increase in criminal activities, and health effects, all these has been challenged by the proponents side and in fact if legalized, it will lead to a reduction of the above mentioned issues. If prostitution is legalized, it will be regulated and therefore, all these implications being mentioned will be eliminated.
Despite the negative connotations, prostitution should be legalized in the United States because regulation would reduce the safety and health and moral issues associated with it while also financially benefitting the government. The main concern for prostitutes is their safety. The safety of a sex worker on the street is at higher risk than a courtesan in a brothel because they are more prone to assault, rape and even murder. The legalization of prostitution offers more protection for sex workers by decreasing abuse and violence. Women are also more likely to come forward to the authorities to report abuse if they are not worried about being fined or arrested.
Nevada’s legal prostitution areas will be used as a prime example as to the many benefits of nationwide legalization such as decreased sexual violence crime rates, economic development, health benefits and protection of the workers, and optimal laws that at the very least decriminalize organized prostitution. In this paper, I challenge to change the perception of prostitution in today’s society by providing many of the most common arguments used to defend it, so that an unbiased judgment may finally be considered in the legalization and decriminalization of prostitution in organized sanctions such as brothels and businesses promoting sex (i.e: Strip clubs, massage parlors, and fetish clubs). Many argue that prostitution should remain illegal because it invokes and will promote sexual violence. But, is prostitution actually violent? Researchers Barbara G. Brents and Kathryn Hausbeck of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas answer this question in their article Violence and Legalized Brothel Prostitution in Nevada by stating “If by violence we mean actual physical harm, our research in brothels indicates that it is not.
