Or, why shouldn't all forms of prostitution except that involving children be legalized?

Uhm, sure.
If people want to pay for sex, why not?

I would rather it be decriminalized because if it's legalized, it involves the government to regulate it and all that bs.

Men pay for sex everytime they meet a girl in a bar and pay for her drinks etc for a night to "remember". Many husbands pay for sex when they buy their wife expensive gifts knowing it's the only way she'll sleep with them. In truth "Prostitution" goes on every day in every State but is called.... "Gifts"

I think it would be safer if legalized. Who cares if someone wants to pay for sex?

To be Honest it isn't anyone's business if someone wants to pay for sex or if someone gets money for sex except the people who are doing it. It's up to them what they do, they are consenting adults. NONE of our business what consenting Adults do as long as it doesn't affect children or hurt anyone.

No, the 'White-Slavery' coerced forms shouldn't be legalized.

Yeah. Keep it legal. It is the man or womans body. They need money? They want to sell sex? Fine by me.

Legalizing it makes it possible for the government to require STD testing. Decriminalizing it doesn't. I'm for legalization for that reason.

Criminal prostitution is one of the great ironies in America. When money (ie. taxes) is to be made via pornography, the government is gung-ho. But when there is no money to be made, the government is vehemently against it.
