    Human trafficking is an atrocity, yes. And the exponentially worse when for sexual use of children.
    But throughout history such activity has been going on, even "policy" promulgated by the conquering
    forces in Old Testament victories (slay every man and beast and woman who has lain with man but
    keep the others for your own use).
    Criminalizing human instinct-impulse (even horrendous and whore-endous) solves nothing, rather, the
    opposite results. Think Prohibition. Think the "war on drugs". Enterprise becomes crime, those engaging
    even just for their pleasure or perversity become criminal and within a crime-context, a profit-factor
    comes about for the gain of the worst elements of humanity to further exploit the most vulnerable to
    thus increase their product!!!
    Legalizing prostitution would be a preventative of human trafficking, especially underage. Legalizing
    prostitution might even entail requiring that those engaged in "sex enterprises" (as prostitutes, but also
    dominatrices and other fetish positions) . . be licenced!! There would be conditions and controls over
    the trades and the participants. And, obversely, there would be benefit for those who of legal age and
    self-determination would engage in the erotic economy. Government regulated, sexual enterprise is
    really just enterprise like any other (except that it happens to usually be conducted naked).
    Illegal, prostitution and human trafficking and child-porn are the "moonshine" mayhem that distributes
    its product (victims of sexual exploitation) worldwide and without any constraint of a system in which
    the personnel and activities (and health factors) would be a selectivity of sex-trade participants --
    and a supervision of who and where -- and the protection from dismemberment and disease by "legitimizing"
    and even localizing (as business-centers) prostitution and alternative sexual activity enterprise.
    With such a legalization would be the opportunity for a woman (or man, for sexual enterprise involves
    both genders (and those "between" or "as") . . . there'd be the procedure and protection to turn in the
    license and be free to go into a different occupation.
    Simply, establishing a format wherein "sex-trade" is a licensed occupation, would likely be for the
    benefit of all. And controlled legalization of sex business would absolutely not result in situations worse than
    exist in the market unregulated other than by criminals, pedofiles, and, perhaps least-worst pimps.

    With this being a current topic on this board, I have read a bit on the internet about it. A benefit of legal brothels is protection for the women, and weekly health checks. The brothel owner interviewed said he's never had a case of HIV/AIDS by any of his workers while in comparison, prostitutes in Las Vegas are said to have many cases of HIV/AIDS (as many as 500 infected women). So this equals an elimination of violence and disease. Workers have a panic button so if things ever got out of control, assistance was moments away.
    A law was passed in California and it classified prostitutes (who were arrested) as sex offenders, even though their customers were seeking the service. So if they moved, they had to register as a sex offender just like a pedophile. We all hate crimes against children and/or those who don't want to be involved. For those who want to be involved, I have no problem with it. If safety and cleanliness can be added, better yet.

    JC,
    You don't like threads about sex (something good) but you'll post about guns all day / every day. I guess it's a matter of interest. I guess for you guns are (something good). I agree prostitution is not ideal. But for some I'd bet it's a tall glass of water on a hot day.

    Tony, you are so far off base with this one regarding me and sex, I love SEX, thank goodness I have a strong women to match my own appetites, my OMG was meant for some people who want to place on everyone their idea of healthy sex and then try to connect the dots between something illegal and something legal and natural to bolster their own interpretation and also myopic view of prostitution. As I stated earlier I have spent some monies in the pursuit of willing prostitutes. BTW, I have never mixed sex with guns although I have a healthy interest in both, just not at the same time.
