You're arguing over the details of a voluntary exchange of goods & services.

Why?

Capitalism doesn't cease to be capitalism when a party doesn't like the options for exchange. It just becomes a rejected offer.

You are exchanging goods and services in all your personal relationships. Why else would you be there?

It's straight prostitution. It's funny that these girls think that giving it some other name changes what it in fact is. then when they get older, do they all of a sudden think that they shouldn't be judged on their looks?

Thats disgusting, grow up, thats not at all what I said. I'm talking about it being an option for adults of legal age who can make grown up decisions. Epstein was a pedophile, he preyed on children. You really have some nerve.

Well, I'm not smart and talented. The proof there would be I have no idea what you're talking about.

Because your basic premise is "voluntary". Your premise , I assume , is that neither part was physically forced into the arrangement e.g. at barrel of a gun. However, it can be fear of starvation or homelessness. Or are you saying its OK in your book if a 12 year old girl exchanges sex with a 50 year old man for money? Is your libertarianism that heartless?

I don't think prostitution should be illegal or anything. To each their own. I am merely stating my personal judgment of those who willingly do this. Of course I think people who sign up for 30 year mortgages are idiots too, so clearly I am a couple standard deviations away from the norm. I happen to believe female companionship, while nice at times, is not worth paying for.

Whats your obsession with linking this to pedophilia? Why not bestiality while you are at it since that has nothing to do with whats being discussed here either.

The cut off at the age of consent is the difference. Epstein apparently dabbled in some girls too young by our laws (and by some moral standards).

Check again. One of the girls making complaints against Epstein was 18. Technically an adult. Did it suddenly matter that the troubled teen was 16 and not 18? That is nerve to suggest otherwise.
