i just thought that it was... i dont know how to say it, maybe backwards is the right term, or maybe conundrum, either way the other day i was watching a cops show and two uncover cops posed as prostitutes to catch disgusting men who are sometimes, well most of the time, married or have a spouse, trying to pick them up to pay for sex. and then i thought to myself...

its illegal for a woman/male to sell his/her body for money in exchange for sexual activities. however if that same person were to pull up next to the prostitute and just say for example the prostitute was just being promiscuous and wanting to have sex, keep in mind for nothing, no money no nothing, its not illegal. so whats illegal is not being promiscuous but for getting paid to be promiscuous.

so if prostitutes want something in exchange for sexual actions, thats illegal but if not, thats perfectly fine. its ok and accepted by society. i also find it ironic that in certain parts of the world prostitution is legal and a 'profession'.

i then feared that one day that same concept will be accepted around the world. it will no longer be looked down on but rather b seen as a profession. personally this disgust me, and i dont support prostitution or being promiscuous. but it seems more and more women are being seen as sexual icons in society.

you cant turn on the tv without seeing a naked woman selling dove soap for a commercial, or some young woman with a tight, revealing shirt on trying to promote a "late nite chat hotline" please, no one is calling that number to chat or find someone to spend the rest of their life with, theyre calling for a one nite stand. and even going out to the store, mothers and young women are revealing their breast and legs, etc. so in a way is the media and society supporting being promiscuous?

i once heard a man that gave a really good example of how i think. he said that a man and woman go to a bar and she sees the man and notices he has the same beer so they lock eyes and she smiles at him then he walks over and starts talking to her. then later on that woman invites him to her apartment and he can do whatever he wants, in the sense of being sexual, and then its 12 o'clock or 1 o'clock at night and he leaves. when he leaves he's hungry so he pulls up to a mcdonalds and orders a small fry and she says 99 cents. so he pulls up to the window and he realizes he forgot his wallet. the person says you have no money, then you get no fries.that same man who had that women he just met for free and yet he cant afford a small bag of greasy fries from mcdonalds. its unbelievable. he cant get any girl he wants, and not literally any girl, but any girl in a sense that is promiscuous.

this is not unheard of. free sex. a one night stand. no strings attached.

it may just be me but i wondered if anyone else felt the same way

Quite honestly I think I have more admiration for a prostitute that earns her wages than a woman who marries some guy simply for the security and the house and the car.

A promiscuous woman is getting what she wants, whatever the motive. Same as the guy. I could make hamburgers and give them out for free but if I charge money, oooh, I need a license and better report it to the I.R.S. When it comes to the law, anytime money is exchanged for services, the gov wants a part of it. It's not about morality but money.

I think you need to return to Amish country...

So let's see...you don't approve of prostitution, or promiscuity, or wearing shorts to the store. How about this - I don't approve of clothing, of people NOT having public sex or NOT paying for sex with strangers.

Which of us is right?

And no, I probably haven't grasped your point here, unless it's a desire to return to Victorian times.

its not a desire to return to "victorian" times, its just, in my opinion, how bad society has gotten that in some parts of the world prostitution is allowed. think of your daughters, your mother, your aunts, your grandchildren given the "right" to sell their bodies to complete strangers. if this is an "amish" concept then its one i would approve of because by you saying "i dont approve of people not having public sex" meaning you approve of people having public sex says a lot about your mind set.

however the main thing i was trying to say is that if a "free" prostitute were to "give herself away" is not legal but as soon as she charges someone it is, whether the government wants part of the money or not, i think thats wrong, but thats my opinion.

you can agree or disagree but that was the point. as far being "amish" and going back to "victorian times" im sure that if you did some research the way women dressed back then there was less rape, less molestation, less std's, etc. etc.

the more people are promiscuous, the faster and more std's spread. the more children go without a mother or father, the more children are put into foster homes (if they even get that) the more abortions, etc etc.

these things come from being promiscuous so i believe that the conns greatly outweigh the "pros" of being promiscuous. a one night stand you have "fun" and thats it. but peoples lives get ruined by these actions. and im not saying all the time something bad happens but im definately saying it could have been avoided.

This appears to be a rather judgmental and uneducated opinion. There are many places prostitution is legal and controlled, yes even in the USA. Exactly why would you call the men who do business with a prostitute "disgusting" ? Are you aware there are just as many women who frequent the use of male prostitutes? There are many loveless and sexless marriages, the use provided by professionals create a release for those afflicted.

Why do proponents of prostitution always seem to advocate government control? I don't get that. Why is there some greater justification for prostitution if the government, for crying out loud, is involved. I sure as heck don't like the government involved in anything except the most necessary matters like inspecting a Ferris Wheel for the school festival, or assuring me that the ground chuck from the store is not ground Fido, or that a shipment of machinery overseas does not include a missal guidance system. But for the government to be involved in whether Fifi washes her kootch between Johns is just not something I want to see. The government is not there to see if someone takes a drag off a cigarette after a person with TB.
