I've been thinking about this ever since they did a channel 4 show about it, should Brothels be legalised? is it a step too far or do you think that through this working girls will be made safer? Also give reasons why

Would tarrifs be a good idea and will it be able to stop the use of drugs and slowly rot away the influrence of gangs and pimps?

Surely that would just mean even MORE illegal brothels, under the guise of legal ones.

The UK needs to encourage people to have babies to combat the whole aging population proplem, not to be shagging dead eyed women who've been forced into a life they never asked for or wanted.

Brothels are legal. Look up 'massage parlours' in the yellow pages.

I really don't see the big deal about brothels. Personally, not my type of thing, don't really need sex especially if it was on a tariff, but the unlucky ones out there would be able to get their end away on pay day.

It's not just women who work in brothels you know, there are brothels for women.

But I wouldn't be against it, so long as it had strict rules like std checks on patrons and the "staff" and if it was taxed.

I think it's a great idea, just look at amsterdam they're doing great.

Yeah and the massive increase in person smuggling since prostitution became legal.

Legalising what the pimps doesn't make it any better, they're still criminals.


It should be illegal to solicit sex, not illegal to be a prostitute.

Screw that. If brothels become legal, we finally have something to replace Little Chef with.

If I EVER see a sign outside the Royal Mail sorting office saying "gorgeous, real postmistresses waiting inside", I honestly think life will be complete.

i think they should. it would bring down the rape numbers a little bit, well it would stop the non-psychotic ones from turning to the psychotic side. i think its healthy to have brothels as long as its not being use to cheat on another person.

Rape is rarely premeditated, and it's usually about power rather than sex.

Personally I think we should. I've never contemplated visiting a prostitute, and I don;t think I ever will, but I can't imagine what the opponents of legalisation think about the 5 women murdered last year in England, not to mention the many deaths in Ireland and elsewhere of prostitutes forced to work the streets with all the risk that entails.
Women are often currently held in bondage by pimps in the sex trafficking industry, legalisation will end this torture.
Many people who say we shouldn't legalize prostitution label those who support it as "women haters". This is the same as the way some Israelis accuse their critics of being anti-Semitic if they dare to criticize their governments barbaric policies in Palestine.

In the words of a lapdancer
"These women talk about empowering women but what they really mean is giving us the power to do to do only the things that they want us to do. That's not empowerment. it's just another form of slavery. It's bullying and abusive. They complain about men oppressing women, but they want to do the same".

The idea that brothel's will make prostitution safe and dandy is false. Look at Australia where there are still illegal brothels and the legal brothels are about as bad anyway. Prostitutes should be free to go to the police (prostitution shouldn't be illegal) but buying sex should not be legal. Also, countries that legalise brothels after they're illegal show a big jump in illegalg people trafficking.

I think the introduction of brothels would have advantages.

1) Prostitutes would be off the streets, and would thus be better protected.
2) It could be made compulsory for the girls to have STD checks.
3) Contraception would be easily available.
4) A possible source of tax for the government.

Everyone's safer and happier.
