What do you think about Prostitution? Should it be legal for a woman to offer sex in exchange for money?

Here's another piece of information to throw into the conversation:
Research shows that close to 100% of women and girls who are engaged in the sex trade here in the USA were sexually and/or physically abused in childhood by a parent or other loved one. Thus, prostitution serves as further exploitation of a woman or child who has been exploited and abused throughout her life.

Its legal in so many places, its odd it hasn't been legalized here.
My thoughts are this;
As long as its a 'profession', it should be regulated as such. Health checks, licensing, whatever it takes to make it safe. If a woman chooses to do this ( and I would NEVER, but others may not mind), its her body. She has to live with the emotional side. So long as she is healthy, uses condoms, and follows any other rules that would be put forth I just don't see a problem with it.

Would the person that is a patron of the prostitiute be given a receipt, would all transactions be on a credit card for references?

I've posed for nude pictures and I'm damn proud of the way I look. I put hours of sweat and hard work into maintaining my body.
The problem is with the snobs who don't respect them, not lack of self-respect.

Good for you!!
I didn't mean to say there was anything wrong with posing for nude pictures, especially not if you do it because you are proud of yourself (and maybe make big bucks in the process .
I only mentioned it as an example, because it is often done just for the money and by young people who are more or less forced. Not unlike prostitution.
I don't consider myself to be a snob, but then, I suppose no-one ever does
But I wonder if I would ever take my boss seriously again if I had seen him in Playgirl with his fly open.
