And it almost sounds like a good consolation when you put it that way. Thumbsup

I just think a lot of young girls who aren't emotionally mature enough to make the kind of decision to enter into his kind of business, would. It would be seen as a viable career option, not a lot of skill needed (yes, there is some of course, but not comparable to job skills ended to get a job of equal pay) and a great paycheck.

I think if someone who didn't have the right kind of maturity needed to know what sex means to them, and how it effects them on a deeper level, they could be emotionally scarred and damaged by having a job like this.

I can see your point about girls getting into it too young, in most cases the minimum age is 21, and I guess for some people that is still too young. But strippers do make a fuckton more than most people (70,000 a year only working two nights a week, I want THAT job) and it's still not considered a career option by most people. Perhaps we should take a look at how strip clubs are regulated and take some notes. It's also the same thing with porn-stars and they're basically unregulated. I understand your fear, but I don't know if it is well-founded.

What better, bible or government laws on how to train your slave

All slavery is forced. Not all prostitution is forced

You've got good points, yeah I do think 21 is probably still too young. Heck I'm 26 and my personal sexuality is still evolving and changing. As far as strip clubs go, it's certainly not sex. I consider prostitution and stripping two very different things, but that's me. And for the porn industry... It is regulated to a degree. They are passing laws to require the use of condoms (and goggles Laugh out load which seems ridiculous). I would say I wish there was a way of ensuring that those workers were also emotionally and sexually mature enough for that line of work as well.

Slavery was not all forced, people had no where else to go, its all they knew.
they only way they could make money to feed their children,

Sound Familiar ?

"When prostitution is accepted by a society as sex work, it becomes even more difficult for poor women and girls, socialized into an ethos of self-sacrifice, to resist economic and familial pressures to enter prostitution. As the numbers of prostituted women and girls expand, a small but still significant percentage are murdered by pimps or customers.
Those women fortunate enough to survive sexual exploitation emerge, usually in their 30's, when they are no longer marketable commodities, with no job skills, traumatized from years of enduring unwanted sex and violence, and physically debilitated from sexually transmitted diseases and the substance abuse necessary to endure the sex of prostitution. What is available to these women? Destitution or a career as a madam or mama san, helping the pimps control the younger women who are marketable commodities".

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: Legalizing Prostitution
Starting to wonder if all you guys are either prostitutes or customers of them.

Certainly not interested is abolishing their oppression, justifying it as "the oldest professional" or we can't stop it anyway defeatist drivel is a disgrace to your your humanity.

Name a single "legal" thing that as god awful as prostitution ?

What you just described is the product of illegal sex-trafficking, not well-regulated brothels that feed money back into the community to try to prevent such a thing from happening.

Again your only thinking of the tiny percentage of sex workers who benefit from legalization, you ignore the bulk of the unheard.
