Reasons To Disagree
They should be regulated to protect the welbeing of customers and staff, and prostitues should be licensed, but other than that I see no reason to outlaw them myself.

Educate people to respect their bodies by all means. I've worked with prostitutes - it's a gross generalisation to assume they don't respect their bodies. Many realise that they need to remain healthy, relatively drug-free and attractive if they are to remain working, and take better care of their bodies than most if us.

Illegal brothels would create more harm than legal ones. It's better to accept that the world's oldest profession will carry on regardless. Better above board than black market.

They clearly need some supervision but if they're providing a marketable service - let 'em get on with it.

Sex is used to sell just about everything. Lets sell it too.

Would you rather woman in safe clean environments with access to protection etc. Or on the streets where they can get raped, pimped, catch stds etc

Clean enviroment vs street, I choose clean tbh.

Reasons To Agree
My view is we should learn to respect our bodies more. To sell sex is not a good look for the up-coming generation.

I would like to make all brothels illegal but I don't think it is realsitic

Better than on the streets, but only by sweeping it under the bedclothes.

Brothels are places where the work of a prostitute is skimmed by someone else. Living of the proceeds of someone who is forced by a drug habbit or worse to sell the only thing they have left is hardly a positive business for the community to be modeled one. Pimp's and brothel keeping are the same thing. Kill them and free the Girls. If they want to sell themselves they dont need a brothel to do it.

Protitution demeans everybody involved & we should do everything we can to discourage it. Prostitution should be illegal for the prostitute, their customer & anyone who profits from the trade.
21 June 2006
Prostitution is a DISGRACE and needs to be banned. Bloody political correctness wrecking our country.
24 March 2007
Prostitution is horrible. ESPECIALLY if you have children. Many people in the world have forgotten the true meaning behind sex anyways. Also they say that prostitution is illegal, but why do they show pornography? They should make pornography illegal as well.
