weather legalised or de-criminalised at the end of the day its only any good if it protects the victims and by this I mean the girls who are forced to do it by people traffickers, pimps and those forced to work the streets to feed there own and quite often other peoples drug problems!!!legalise it and yes things will improve but there will always be someone who can offer it cheaper,enter the pimps and people traffickers again.
We need to look at our whole attitude to the sex industry in this country to solve the problem long term as its our attitudes that force it underground as much as the law !!!

Yes, because it could then be regulated, it would be harder for people (mainly E.European immigrants) to be trafficked & forced into the trade, health could be monitored, and the link to drugs and crime possibly broken

that said, it's still distasteful - but a trade thats been around so long can hardly be defeated.
I suspect that the existence of prostitution reduces the existence of rape cases too - altho' theres a debate to be had about whether prostitution constitutes rape when there's a pimp involved. It might.

Yes. I know what Mysty means about brothel owner making the bigger profit from unearned income though, but that is how most business work. . I guess it's down to regulation. .

It beats me why any woman would put herself in such a dangerous position to start with


Really? How about poverty, trying to put the kids through school, drugs. How about trafficking and being forced into it.

And at the top end of the market, just see how much high class escorts can earn.

Really think you ought to read the reports coming out of the Rotherham scandal or just do an internet trawl. There are lots of men out there looking for vulnerable kids who are often from broken homes, subjects of violence at home, rape by family members and so on. Some of these kids end up in homes or running away. They are preyed on by men who groom them, make them feel loved, buy them presents, have sex, introduce them to drugs and bit by bit they spiral down into dependant drug use and prostitution.

It beats me why men pay for it.


I guess it's because women hold the key. From the point of view of a bloke I have often felt that I am paying for it anyway, drinks, meals etc.

I met an American chap in Bangkok who expressed such sentiments to me. He had gotten totally fed up of having to wine and dine his dates back in the states a few times before getting some so decided instead to save the money and simply have a holiday in Thailand two or three times a year. I don't see that for myself but it is a point of view.

Aitche, I'm afraid that view is alive and well. I went out with a woman a few times, never was going to go anywhere and we remained friends. A group of us were having a conversation about this subject and she said that the chap should always pay as the women spent their time and money looking good. Not my words and I have been out with any number of women who do expect the bloke to pay (maybe I pick the wrong ones?).

What I was talking about and my American friend was saying is that everyone has their own rules and sex only occurs after 3,4,5? dates and he was fed up of the idea that sex only came after paying for x number of meals/drinks/cinema tickets.

For myself, I'm not interested in sex outside of a relationship and thinking about it, I actually like the idea of that slow build up of getting to know each other.

Well as we are now paying the EU extra dosh based on the idea that we are very successful in this area perhaps we should legalise it.

Prostitution is never going to be stopped. Being illegal and hugely profitable it attracts the criminal element and results in people trafficking, violence and coercion.

Bring it out into the light and perhaps the really nasty side of this business could be properly targeted.

Perhaps decriminalise the act of selling sex, so that sex workers are not prosecuted, but criminalise the act of buying sex, and then actually police it.


That would be the Swedish model which clearly doesn't work. Amnesty International have got into some trouble over the issue with high profile celebrities criticising their calls for decriminalisation. As long as its between consenting adults and discrete I don't see the problem.
