If we increase the supply of legal prostitution, price will drop.

Its only legal is a few counties in Nevada. When you limit the supply the demand pushes up prices. I have yet to hear anyone explain why keeping it the way it is benefits anyone, except the street pimps who benefit from it being illegal.

They're not ****ing plants, they're human beings. Go live in Mexico if you want cheap hookers.

People can’t decide how to use their own bodies?

What does that tell you? Use logic.... it isn't legal in most areas of NV. Supply vs demand.

Just like in Netherlands, the illegal aspect of prostitution exists because of the regulations they put into place.

Since you don't want to discuss then why even continue....
There are no wrong assumptions and my view is far from simplistic, but whatever you have to tell yourself.

Obviously I am just sharing my opinion, that is the point. I never said it was anything but "my take on it." If you have a different take, you can also share it. That is also the point of these threads. I have been discussing.

YEs.. human beings... and as uman beings they should have free will to decide what they can and cannot do on their own. As for the last statement... similar ranting like in the other thread that makes no sense. It should be abundantly clear that it isn't about price....

It's easier to regulate when your cities aren't a third of the size of the total area of the Netherlands. Europe also has a better surveillance apparatus.

I am fine with adults choosing to buy/sell sex. Not the greatest thing, but then again, humans are very strange.

Someone who might make 35K a year at a regular job, but can make 200K a year doing sex-work, that has to somewhat make up for the blechiness of being a prostitute.

You and I have crossed paths many times on this topic. I think it is pretty obvious that when I tell you your assumptions are wrong and views overly simplistic it is pretty much spot on.

But again.. you don't want to discuss which implies a closed mind not willing to hear real life experiences with sex work but rather embrace preconceived notions and assumptions.
