I want to start off by saying that I'm against prostitution. I think that it's wrong for human intimacy to be packaged and sold like some product to people. I remember reading that in some places in my country where it's legal, brothels offer out little "menus" for people to browse through, as if it were like ordering a dish at a restaurant. I don't think it's healthy, and honestly it just disgusts me. But I'm personally not sure whether it should be legal or not. It's illegal where I live now, and all that means is that pimps get rich off of enslaving and selling women to perverts, ruining their lives. Some of them are kidnapped from their families, and some are trafficked by gangs from foreign countries to help keep them isolated. Many people have suggested that legalizing it would leave these criminals with far fewer clients, since they would have no reason to do it illegally. Other benefits could include a reduced spread of STDs due to enforced health regulations and regular STD testing, and some level of protections for the women from being abused. What are your thoughts on this?
