Why Adam? Such a plain name. Why not something more cool like "Serious Sam"... first he made Serious Sam and Pamela Anderson.

RE: Why should prostitution be illegal?
I think we've got it about right over here...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_in_Singapore


"Prostitution in Singapore is legal, but various prostitution-related activities are not. This includes public solicitation, living on the earnings of a prostitute and maintaining a brothel. In practice, police unofficially tolerate and monitor a limited number of brothels. Prostitutes in such establishments are required to undergo periodic health checks and must carry a health card...."

Prostitution is legal, but you can't public solicit it, and you can't own a brothel. So how in the hell do you advertise your services? You can't!

"In practice, police unofficially tolerate and monitor a limited number of brothels. "
In other words, the system in place makes no sense and doesn't work.

Also, it goes on to say that you can't live on the earnings. Ok, WTF? How could they possibly regulate something like this? Again, seemingly impossible.

This is a system is so ridiculous ineffective that it reminds me of the drug war.


Simplicity is key imo.

RE: Why should prostitution be illegal?
The laws as they stand don't work. That is why you have illegal, yet regulated brothels, and unregulated brothels fronting as massage parlors.

Its like you guys made it legal, but you were too ashamed to admit it.

RE: Why should prostitution be illegal?
Laws and what a society deems is acceptable / unacceptable are very often out of synch.

I think there are still laws in the UK about not driving your geese through London at certain times of the year Smile

The principle seems to be that selling sex and giving it away for free are OK. But if you try to make a living out of forcing someone else to do it... you get slapped!

Good law. I have one better - in Salt Lake City, Utah, also known as the Mormon Vatican, the city is on the shores of, well, you guessed it, the Great Salt Lake. It is in our state law that it is illegal for the lake to rise about a certain depth. Illegal. The lake. Sure, at the "illegal" depth it tends to flood many streets and businesses downtown.

Illegal.

Like we're going to arrest a lake, throw it in jail.

I bet it would get out on "bail" anyway... Yeah, I just thought of that one right now. Call it sleep deprivation...

RE: Why should prostitution be illegal?
AS,
In the UK, much of the law is based on 'intent'.

So the key question would be whether the lake intended to rise above the permited level.

Fucking lakes. Who do they think they are?

RE: Why should prostitution be illegal?
Providing it is properly regulated I don't see there being a problem as a whole, but I doubt a politician is going to come out and say they supported legalising prostitution since it makes them unelectable to many.
