Not every prostitute deals with dangerous clientele. However, while prostitution is illegal, the majority of prostitutes must work for less financially stable clients which are statistically more prone to violent behavior.

Due to prostitution, sex trafficking is getting more and more out of hand. To address this subject buying sex should be a considered a criminalized act, and selling sex should be decriminalized.

Prostitutes are convicted if caught for exercising their profession. However, why are they being punished? Most prostitutes do not choose that life but are enrolled in it by pimps who take advantage of the unfortunate circumstances of young women’s lives. It seems as if U.S. law thought of prostitutes as “happy hookers” (Kay 2013). The true problems lay in the pimps and the whole sex commerce, not in the prostitutes themselves; prostitutes are merely victims.
Since the beginning of time prostitution has been an ongoing controversial debate. Prostitution has been practiced throughout ancient and modern culture has been described as "the world's oldest profession” and despite consistent attempts at regulation, it continues nearly unchanged. Prostitution is the act or practice of engaging in promiscuous sexual relations for money. It occurs across cultures and political systems, even operating in socialist societies. The exploitation of engaging in sexual relations for money is considered to be a serious global issue in most countries around the world.

One detail that has been brought up when debating anti-prostitution laws is that making it illegal is a violation of human rights. Prostitutes are very heavily discriminated against by not only the people who disagree with the act and believe it to be immoral, but also by police and other law enforcement officials.
Prostitution is becoming a very popular trade in America. Because the practice is illegal, it’s difficult to estimate the current number of prostitutes in work; however, there is believed to be 1 to 2 million in the US alone. Prostitution is one of the most dangerous professions in the world. In today’s society, sexually transmitted diseases are much too common among the American people. Prostitutes face a huge risk of catching an STD since they have sex with so many different people.
Those have become legal already, now the question is why prostitution is still not legal. Legalizing prostitution promotes safety and reduces crime (mainly violence against women), puts more regulation on the prostitution industry, and generates economic profits. Let men be men.
