The truth is anything moral is best proposed by persuasion,not by laws.If your reasons are vaild enough people will accept your view by choice not by being forced to.

Morals are only really expanded by your own household.You can proclaim morals but you can't force others to accept them even if you brand them illegal.


Now when a person interferes on another's rights like rape and murder or friving drunk then yes laws are appropiate.But other than that what a person does that doesn't effect you should be none of your business.

Sorry to be so confusing.

I'm wanting to know how you know what a pimp's cut is.

How do you know they take 90%?

Right and no one buys illegal cigarettes carried up north from down south either right?

Um, I'm talking about legal vs. illegal prostitution.

That there will still be 'illegal' prostitution even if it's legalized.

Just like there are illegal versions of legal things now.

It might help to go back a few posts and read forward.

The poster said no one would build a car when they can buy one.

Yet cigarettes are legal in every state and illegal cigarettes is a major crime. I've seen truckloads of these things being shipped north.

In fact, there was a whole terrorists ring sending money to the Middle East from Charlotte just a few years ago based on this trafficking.

Ah, never mind. If you think legalizing prostitution will mean that young girls aren't still gonna be exploited (whether willingly or not), I can't help ya.

Tell me, just how many women are there out there that you think actually aspire to sell their bodies for money?

There really is a serious problem of young girls being exploited into prostitution, particularly in places like Thailand. That of course is immoral and criminal behavior and I don't support anything like that at all.
As far as your other question regarding the number of women who would sell their bodies for money I know that there's enough to keep this illegal and dangerous business operating and I think there would be alot more if the environment wasn't so dangerous. When we're talking about the activities of two consenting adults I don't think the government has any business meddling in people's lives. I'll be the first to admit that I think it's wrong for married men to engage in this behavior but my primary reasons for supporting legal prostitution is to create a safe environment for the women to operate their business, reduce crime associated with prostitution and enforce strict health codes to prevent the spread of STD's. I don't think there would be much of a demand for a prostitute who could likely have AIDS, who's not operating legally and just walking the streets if there were safe and legal brothels.

Why? I don't follow your logic. If the actions of two consenting adults are no business of anyone else, and their actions are legal, then how will there be illegal prostituion?

You're not referring to having sex with an underage individual are you? That's not prostitution, that's statutory rape and child abuse.

What's illegal about the cigarettes? The cigarettes themselves aren't illegal... the sale of the cigarettes without collecting sales tax and other excise taxes and sending that to the state tax office is what is illegal.

I think you are confusing what specifically is illegal and what potentially would be illegal.

There may very well be a market for prostitutes with HIV or AIDS, selling their services to other individuals who are infected and don't wish to spread the disease.
