In Germany?? wtf??

Was listening to the news today at lunch and they were talking about how there is talk about repealing the law that made street skanks work legal. From what I was able to figure out the lovely ladies are able to get government benefits at this point, however if the new law passes they won't be able to. They are very upset that they do so much hard work protituting (ie, laying on their backs all day.) One lady was particularly upset becuase she had been a prostitute for 20 years  Wow!. I figured this was the perfect topic for us degenerates, so whack away!!

In Nevada, other than Las Vegas and Reno, it's legal, sanctioned, and regulated.

And I understand that Amsterdam is famous for window shopping.

What's new?

Amsterdam also has an fenced area where car drivers can drive in (checked by the police) and pick up a prostitute in a controlled environment.
They were thinking of a similar scheme for the City of Liverpool to at least try and control prostitution and make it safer.
Face it, its the worlds oldest profession, you can't stop it, so why not make it safer?

Its a criminal act in the UK their just trying to find ways to make it safer for all involved. I know it seems like a liberal outlook but many years of enforcement have proved to be useless, they always find somewhere else to ply their trade.

About two years ago, Oscar Goodman, the mayor of Las Vegas, spoke to a state lawmakerr about having the law changed to allow them in Las Vegas (The way the law is written, the only county it is banned in by the law is Clark County, as it has a population of over 400,000. Of the 16 counties eligible under the law, only 7 currently allow it.), and envisioned East Freemont as the Vegas version of Amsterdam's red light district.
LEGALIZED PROSTITUTION: Vegas brothels suggested

When you think about it, illegal prostitution goes on everywhere, so why not make it legalized in certain areas? The vast majority of massage parlors and escort services are nothing more than fronts for prostitution, human trafficking, organized crime, and drug cartels.

Here in Switzerland it is legal. I don't understand a country which forbids it. It happens anyway. You better make it legal with rules and take care that the women (and men) are not forced to do it by anybody. It must be a free decision.

Prostitution has been 'legal' in most places in more than one form. Who here has had to wine and dine a girl before you could get them to bed? At the end of the day you are paying for sex. I'm sure that some people have had to build up to it over several weeks too.

It would have easier to visit a prostitute and pay up front  Yeah sure

Many people say "it" is a shame, and should be illegal. Why do you think that prostitution exists? Or why do you think that there are so many prostiutes or bordels etc.. well because there is a demand for it!

It should be a free decision, but a lot more emphasis must be generated here in europe to protect (especially young girls from eastern countries) those who are "bought, sold and forced" to act as prostitutes.

If you have a chance, watch the DVD "Lilja Forever"..it almost made me through up what this poor kid was going through!

The reason why prostitution was legalised in Germany (opposed to the former policy of "toleration"), was to bring prostitutes out of dependency on pimps and organised crime. A prostitute could now e.g. report a pimp or gangster to the police without incriminating herself as a prostitute This has apparently worked so far, but now the conservatives, who will probably win this autumn´s election want to ban it again because, same as homosexuality, they consider them a danger to "family values". As if prostitution would disappear when it gets banned. The only people profiting of such a ban would be the slave traders, pimps and mafiosi.

I believe it is legal in Australia too, although I understand this only applies to prostitutes who work in brothels that are licensed by the government.

A few years ago a brothel in Australia was listed on the stock exchange.

I think prostitution is legal in Canada too; in that, people are allowed to sell their bodies for sex.

But IIRC it is illegal to buy the "services" of a prostitute. A clever little way to make prostitution essentially illegal. Don't ask me why this is. My only answer is that it's Canada... what do you expect?

If we can "sell" our minds, bodies and time to an employer in exchange for monetary enrichment, we should be able to sell our orifices as well. Or maybe the government couldn't figure out to get in on the action if it were legal across the board.

Same goes for pot too, something that grows in the wild. Alcohol has to be manufactured, and thus taxed and regulated.

Funnily enough, prostitution itself isn't illegal, it's the soliciting that is. That's why escort agencies are perfectly legal.

So which is more honorable; selling sex, or a lady cop pretending to be a prostitute in order to entice (can't say 'entrap') a person into soliciting a sexual act for money?

Just a personal opinion, the only reason it is illegal anywhere is because the government officials make more in bribes from the purveyors than they would make from their share of the taxes if it was legal.

But then I'm just a cynic.
