–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.
Prostitution has social economic, physical, and a number of mental implications. The prostitutes and their clients are subject to a nu... ... middle of paper ... ...inst prostitution, then why some brothels legal, yet the prostitution as a whole are is illegal? 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.
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.
Though he seems to have positive end results to the issue, the immoral act of prostitution still is part of the solution. As proven before, legal prostitution could lead to an excess of prostitutes that could ruin the appearance of our country, it does not control ones animal-like impulses, but merely lets them run wild, it uses sex as a drug that could lead to an increase of sex ?junkies?, the crime rate could possible increase, rather than decrease, and the spread of STD?s will not be effected positively. The best way to fix the issue of prostitution is to continue fighting it, till eventually the message gets across that prostitution is wrong, and does not lead to a profitable life financially, or morally.
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.
Another example is in Rhode Island where it is legal to do indoor prostitution in 2003- 2009 and the rape rate reduces significantly. The difference between legalization and decriminalization is that decriminalization is to get rid of all punishment for prostitution and the advertisement of prostitution, while legalizing is wherein the states doesn’t prosecute prostitution per se but takes a heavy-handed approach to its regulation (Brown, 2). I’m strongly with decriminalization overall because having a criminal record could affect your future as in getting a job. When men who buy sex and females who sell sex become criminals in the eyes of society they will always be a criminal because it will be on their
So the question remains, what are we going to do about it? Legalizing Prostitution would not only protect these women and give them the chance to seek safety and justice, but would also boost the economy and reduce the spread of STDs. When it comes to prostitution there is a big taboo button ready to sound anytime someone brings it up, but what if it was a normal subject? The porn industry has always been legal and was grossing up to 10 billion dollars in the US as of 2007. Found by These revenues decreased by nearly 50% during 2007 through 2011, because of all the free pornography on the internet.
This to me is completely absurd and over the top. As adults in todays society we should be able to consent to make own choices and do what they desire, as long as it is not hurting anyone. When you bring up the topic of legalization of prostitution you are going to spark a contention no matter who you are with. The main topics being related to the areas that most people are concerned, but are not well educated about how something can easily be prevented in many ways. Usually the first concern will be most likely to be around the ongoing issue human trafficking and violence to women, that with legal brothels traffickers can get away with much more than they already are, and women will be more likely to be treated in a sense that they are just goods on the market to be sold over and over again.
So who are we to deprive them of their right to do whatever they want with their body? It could be the only thing that keeps them from feeding there family from a dumpster. Nevertheless, the government doesn’t care about that, all it cares about is regulating something it sees as supposedly “bad,” that is paying for sex. One of the benefits of legalizing prostitution would be that the government would actually be able to regulate it. This would make it a more supervised practice, so it wouldn’t spread AIDS and herpes and other diseases.
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.
