I was having a conversation with my brother about this and we could not think of one reason why prostitution is illegal in the US. Legal prostitution has been working fine in Nevada. No diseases are being spread or anything like that because prostitutes are tested regularly. Why can't it be legal in the rest of the US? Is there any justification for prostitution being illegal?

EDIT: fixed an inaccuracy

that's why you confine them to "red light districts" where they can work in brothels, and no one's bothered..

i say legalize it, if only to be able to regulate it

control spread of disease, and whatnot

prostitutes are the same thing as sluts..just except you pay them foward and you dont have to buy them drinks to get them in your car

Prostitution isn't legal is Las Vegas. It is legal in other parts of the state, but not there.


I wasn't 100% sure this was the case so I looked it up on google, and "is prostitution legal in los vegs?" was the first thing that popped up when I had typed "is pr" into thebox.

sad predicament, anyone who has to sell themselves to make a living or keep up with a "habit" is truly in a suffering state.

legalized prostitution? well it has more pros than cons. considering there'd be protection, regulation, regular medical testing, NO PIMPS beatin their ho's, and they wouldn't have to stand around on the streets.

the way it is now.. well, its pointless to have to spend taxpayer money on arresting, and processing somebody for something as harmless as wanting a bit of fun with a hooker.

IMO, its no different than buying some easy girl at a bar a bunch of drinks and then taking her home with consent.

Legal brothels in Nevada sure seem to work.

I also like Penn and Teller's take on the issue on Bullshit.


I see no reason why it shouldn't be legal, and regulated as it is in Nevada. *shrugs*

Attempting to use government to zone prostitution will fail when the layout of the neighborhoods and zones of the city changes without government. Then the zoned "red-light district" will wind up stuck out in a really horrible place. If prostitution is legalized, brothel owners will place their brothels in areas where they will attract business without attracting criticism from the people who were in the area if the brothel owners want their brothels to succeed.
If you are reading this, then it would seem that you're either too busy with this sig with nothing in it to finish reading the thread or there are no posts left in the thread to read.

I'm PRETTY sure that brothels wouldn't have to be "conveniently placed" in order for them to get business.

I mean, they're in the middle of the DESERT in Nevada, and they still get loads of business.

It people want sex, they will go out of their way to get it.

as with nearly everything thats prohibited, i think it would be better to make it legal, put it in the hands of the gov't. the "product" would be alot safer having to pass certain health codes, and not to mention you could tax the hell out of it

There is nothing wrong with it, its basically the same as porn except girls in porn are considered "actresses" but they are just paid money to have sex.

Its legal here, and the cases of crime against prostitutes have fallen dramatically, and there are no prostitutes spilling out on to the street.

it's legal here in germany, if girls want to do it, let them!

they're probably too stupid to care anyway.

And for the record, I HATE THAT STUPID MOVIE "PRETTY WOMAN". Julia Roberts is the worst ****ing actress EVER, and the entire plot line of that movie sucked, and wasn't even original, it was a complete ripoff of My Fair Lady.

If it could be guaranteed that all prostitution would be fair- fair wage, completely out of their own choice, and clean, then it would be ok. But as it is, the prostitution industry is completely immoral and unfair- sex immigrant workers, the danger of prostitutes being out on the street at night, and the fact that there are people out there who don't really care whether they hurt them or infect them, etc.

So it should stay illegal.

And see what legal prostitution does to a society? New Zealand is a total shithole, especially compared to where prostituion is illegal, like the utopia known as America.

Don't get ****ing smart ass.

Street prostitution, human trafficking, child prostitution, brothels, and pimping is illegal.

I personally would never buy a hooker, but I think it's stupid to have it be illegal; everyone knows they are all over the place, and the only people they hard are themselves and their patrons. I view it much similar to drugs; ultimately, the only people it hurts are those that do it, and I've never been one for the IT'S FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION approach.

That is the complete truth. I was told today that one can't be a liberal and go to heaven. I wanted to rip the guys head off for being as ignorant as he was (he was serious)

I say why not.
We can have registered prostitutes that get checked weekly and that get taxed fairly so more money can go to school and hospital. It's a win win. Everybody's happy!!!
