Um.... again, I don't quite follow.

The transaction of payment for services would seem seperate from the stygmatization of said and or certain services....?

Just a thought/post.

The prostitute has sex with others because they can't provide for their needs otherwise, and it was the best money making option available; not because of a genuine desire to have sex which you can do for free. Does this make sense?

That case may be...... but it does not necessarily follow.

A person may simply wish to provide physical interaction on demand.

Also, the instance of providing physical services on demand, on a regular basis (If one wished) thence, being a service, should receive recompense/payment for said service, no?

Not the only reason.

Sure, we can provide service to anybody who wants it. The point is that service can be mutual in which both parties are satisfied and the service is done out of pleasure, or it can be non-mutual where one party requires payment because they need money.

You've subtly changed the gist of the conversation.

People can engage in recreational physical interactions, sure. Indeed, social physical interactions are 'normal'.

What is being discussed is the action of providing physical interaction effectively on demand, hence a service being provided and recompense received.

RE: Legalizing Prostitution
It should be legalized and regulated. Involuntary prostitution should obviously result in heavy penalties for the trafficker, because that is indeed a crime against humanity, but voluntary prostitution excluding a middleman (aside from a corporation which would be, again, subject to regulation) should be legal.

Everybody sells their labor to make ends meet.

I strongly believe it will go away, hopefully in my lifetime. It is a crime against humanity and should be treated as such.

But isn't sex a normal thing? And isn't the fact that sometimes people can't find a partner also normal? Fact is weather they enforce the law against it more or not its still going to exist. As far as the kids...the sooner they find out that the world isn't perfect the better.
