As I posted earlier, it seems the ugly and the insecure women are the ones that start howling at the mention of prostitution.

Why? They are the ones most in need of a hot looking stud as a guy prostitute.

Another random thought, and I apologize if it's already been asked - but why is porn legal while prostitution is not? I've never understood why it's only legal to get paid for sex if a camera is filming... seems kinda backwards to me!

A major reason why they're paid for doing porn is because they're hot looking.

The argument that porn is not the same as prostitution, as I remember it, is that in porn you pay people an "acting fee" to have sex with each other, whereas in prostitution you are paying someone to have sex with you. It's a very fine line, and I don't think you would necessarily get away with hiring a prostitute to have sex with you in front of a camera.

Lol, nice one

It's the same sort of attack people use against those who oppose abortion. George Carlin said, and I'm paraphrasing, that women who are against abortion are women you wouldn't want to have sex with in the first place. Maybe the most obnoxious loudmouths sounding off against abortion are like that, but then most obnoxious loudmouths IN GENERAL are ugly, imo.

It is interesting, though. "Ugly" and "insecure" are often adjectives people against prostitution use to describe the PROSTITUTES and their Johns...

George Carlin phrased it memorably a generation ago: "Selling is legal; [copulating] is legal. Why shouldn't selling [copulating] be legal?"

As far as I'm concerned, that argument is unanswerable.
