But prostitution can result in complications as well. One or the other can still catch feelings, particularly if they don't just robotically go in, do their business, then leave. As for the threat of a *dum dum dum* relationship, a man who can't find a "friend with benefits" or an "open relationship" is still a man who has to pay for sex. And this type of man shouldn't be getting any... Sex, that is.
Said man will often enter into a conventional relationship but not honor any bonds of committment.

I think you feel that men should be denied sex across the board.

BTW, legalization's worked in New Zealand: Toronto News: Legalized brothels

Should prostitution be legalized? Why or why not?

Absolutely. It is not a valid role of government to tell people what they can do with their bodies and who they can have sex with and what arrangement they can make to have sex.

There are thousands and thousands working this field today. The laws are just an annoyance.

And it doesn't need to be regulated. It works just fine today without regulation.

Couldn't one say that anti-prostitution laws are forbidden by Roe v. Wade because they violate a woman's right to do with her body what she sees fit?

Human trafficking is illegal and government should protect people from trafficking. Trafficking has nothing to do with legalizing prostitution.

Denying there is any link between poverty/unemployment and prostitution? Said links are well-established.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Millions of men who don't "Have to pay for sex" use prostitutes. And they aren't lazy.

You might be quite surprised.

Whether or not catholics are against sexual sins is irrelevant on a question of law. We do not legislate based upon religious rules, indeed it is prohibited.

To the OP... Absolutely, prostitution should be legalized. Any thing that is legal when free should be legal when not.

For the need of sexual pleasure to be fulfilled, another person is necessary? *buzzer*

Not without developing some social skills, he won't

Ah yes, the extreme accusations of those who disagree with you being extremist. I figured it was just a matter of time...

You have no idea what you're talking about. Millions of men who DO have to pay for sex use prostitutes. Hence, the reason they are paying for sex instead of getting it for free. They ARE lazy, as are the prostitutes rewarding them. You might be quite surprised.
