Badass Badass 01/22/2012

In Nevada it is legal to go to a brothel and pick a hooker. Do you think this is right or wrong?

I think brothels should be legal (and regulated) everywhere.

That's pretty much how I feel. They are going to exist no matter what happens, they should at least be regulated and preferably taxed.

I have no issue with brothels or other forms/ places of sex work. I feel as long as both parties consent, it's none of my damned business.

I don't have an issue with brothels neither, as long as they're regulated for health purpose. AND, as long as my husband's not one of their patrons!

I feel that a person's body belongs to them and if they decide to sell their body, they should be able to. We can sell almost everything else that is ours, why not our body, too? As far as morals go, that is relative to the individual as well. Some people believe users of adult sexual aides and toys are immoral. I obviously do not, however, being from a small town, I have heard some very judgmental statements.

Personally I like the idea. I see nothing wrong with brothels/prostitution as long as it's safe and the girls have fun doing it and such.

Yes, legal sex work is a good thing. There will be sex work regardless, so it's better to regulate and tax it. It's safer for everyone.

I don't have any problems with it. Brothels are a great way to keep everyone safe- both from STDs and violence, and as long as it's all well regulated, it's no problem! If someone wants to pay for sex, let em!

Can and should are two different things. Although I could, legally, I would not. Both morally and hygenically, I have reservations. I don't care how often you've had an STD test, I'm not rolling those dice.

I totally agree. While I don't picture myself ever going to a brothel, I think they are a good idea. Much better than walking the streets illegally - that's far too dangerous!

Yes, I think they ought to be legal in more states! It works for Nevada and New Zealand, why not the U.S.? It would probably help a lot with STDS and such if we took measures to guarantee workers were safe.

I think brothels are fine as long as they are away from areas with children and clients/staff have mandatory STD testing. Otherwise you get deprived perverts with built up aggression. Granted, you will have those no matter what...but I believe it would cut back.

I say yes to Nevadan brothels. They are well regulated. The sex workers are tested regularly for STDs and they need a license and background check to work. Brothel owners also need a license and background check. The sex workers are of age and are doing what they do of their own volition.
IMO, it would be safer to have unprotected sex with one of these people than to have unprotected sex with some non-sex worker stranger. Those who are worried about health issues should stop worrying.

I think it should be completely legal as long as it's all completely consensual! Let people do what they want! If it was legal everywhere then it could be regulated to help prevent the spreading of disease and mistreatment/forced prostitution.
07/21/2012

I believe just about everything should have a legal outlet. Prostitution, drugs...it just increases the black market for these things and makes it impossible to regulate. It'd be easier to stop things like sex slavery and child prostitution if you had to be a licensed brother to operate.

I don't like it personally, nor would I ever go to one. If it's what other people want to blow money on, then that's on them. Now with that said, if making them legal would mean more people are safe, then I'm all for it.

People should have autonomy over their own bodies and sex work can be empowering. I think they should be regulated and that women should have options. If you think about it, people legally exchange sex for money (or gifts, or power) all the time.

Brothels should be legal, as well as independent prostitution- it would make things a lot safer for people who choose to engage in sex work as a profession, as well as help generate revenue for the state.

Better to be legal and paying fair share of taxes and being tested for STDs and regulated (to some extent at least) than being underground. And no pimps. Legalize it. The Gov't doesn't need to be in the business of telling it's people what they can do in the bedroom.

Absolutely, as long as the women are consenting to their job position and not in danger of rape, robbery, etc. I think it's good that it's legal, that way the police can arrest an unruly customer, rather than getting the worker in trouble.

Damn people, are you really that squicked by it that you think you'll wind up 'involved' just because it's legal? You have no idea how many things are legal out there...you are not involved in all of them, and you are not in danger of such. Freedom means freedom.

Yes. Legalize prostitution nationally. I won't patronize it but lots of people will Tax it and regulate it. Black markets create problems. I think there do need to be safeguards against STDs and also against women being coerced into sex work. But prostitution will always be with us, legal or illegal. If it's legal it can be controlled and can be a source of revenue for cash-strapped states.

What happens between consenting adults isn't my business. But I do have an issue with people being forced/coerced into a lifestyle because they feel like they have no other option. I know there isn't any way to regulate that, but it still bothers me.

See, that was my exact thought! Prostitution is going to happen, the government might as well make money off them, instead of losing money sending them to jail!

It would also be far more safe to go to a brothel, where you know the person you are paying to sleep with isn't going to give you an STD...

I wonder if they test the men for disease when they come in..?

I wouldn't go near one unless I were passing and I'd take a photo outside but that's it. I think it could lessen the influence of pimps, which can be pretty awful. The whole sex trafficking thing MIGHT lessen, too cause I'm sure guys would rather go to a place where the room is provided and the environment/selection is better than on the street. It's the oldest profession afterall.

Yes! If adults can have consenting sex for free, it is unreasonable and OPPRESSES WOMEN to say that they cannot use this as a way of making income. I feel that prostitution was made illegal as a way to prevent women from earning more money and advancing on the socioeconomic ladder.

I really don't get why prostitution is illegal in the first place..
it's consenting adults, it's THEIR bodies they are choosing to do things with, and it's really not that far off from getting laid after an expensive date.
If it were legal, it would make it a lot safer and be taxed and everything. I just don't get it.

I would much rather women who want to work in such an industry do so through a brothel. That way they are (in theory) safer -- STI's and violence wise, and less likely to get ripped off your abused by some pimp.

So long as the participants are there legally and willingly (like the person above me said), I don't have a problem with it at all. Seems a lot better than having illegal and underage girls being in constant danger on the streets.

Consensual sex between adults is just that...consensual and should not be illegal , even when money is exchanged for such sex.

Yes, absolutely. There is no reason why they should not. Contrary to what the public thinks, nearly 50% of strip clubs do have girls who offer to have sex (whether the management know it or not, and probably MORE if you look clean and decent and rich, I am speaking from what I know as a 20 year old who dresses in 'swag'.

Prostitution is already happening everywhere. It being illegal means that law enforcement spends time and money on arresting people for engaging in prostitution, whether they're taken in for "solicitation" or "tax evasion". Prostitutes put themselves in danger to make their money. Legalizing prostitution would free up the bit of law enforcement that has to bother with it, bring in additional income to the state/federal government from taxes, and make it safer for both workers and clients by requiring testing and, in the case of brothels, providing a safe environment.

MaeGal MaeGal
YES.

I think legalizing prostitution would be a good idea. These women are going to engage in the same type of behavior if it's legal or not. However, if it IS legal, at least we can make sure that STI's aren't being spread, that the women aren't being abused, and that the women are all over 18 (way too many prostitutes are mere under-18 teeenagers).

I think it's better for guys to visit a STD-free brothel, then to pick up a hooker on the street, putting their health at risk.

I agree with this statement.

Not for them, but not against them. If they are safe, I am fine with them existing and operating. It only bothers me as an available means of cheating in a relationship (but you can't exactly stop that by eliminating them, so might as well be safe).

Oldest profession, impossible to eradicate I suppose, so best done in a safe and controlled environment. At the same time, I just can not click 'yes' and approve of, what I feel, is degrading to women.

I think they're a good idea. It's a safer environment in every sense of the word. Less violence, less crime, less STDs... legal brothels beat the alternative by a country mile. I would not work at one nor visit one, but I don't have a problem with them.

I think brothels are a good idea. I think they make the world safer for sex-workers and their clientele.

I just don't really like the idea of prostitution in general. I know it happens, but...

I believe prostitution should be legalized and with that I see now reason not to legalize establishment set up for that purpose, indeed it would make thing safer for all.

I think studies have shown that legalizing it significantly raises the survival rate of sex workers, and also gives them a boost in confidence. They can get seriously hurt in the current legal climate, and if someone rapes or beats them they can't really go to the police. So yeah, I support brothels so long as they are supportive environments for the sex workers and they're not made to compete with each other.

I think brothels are good ideas if it's indeed STD free and safe.

I totally support legal brothels..... but I also support the idea of legalizing all street drugs as well. That does not mean that I would necessarily have any interest in visiting a brothel or using crack, but when these things are illegal they are paired with so much crime and violence. Making them legal helps to protect all involved, and removes so much of the criminal activity that effects those involved and innocent bystanders.

I support legalizing sex work, but I'd have to do more research on how safe the work environment in the Nevada brothels are to fully support them. Is "brothel" the correct word, btw? Seems a little old-fashioned, heh.

Prostitution is the oldest profession (at least that's what one of my professors always said). I'm unsure about it today though

I don't think it's a fair that one state gets to have legal prostitution and not any others.

It's safer for the working girls, so I'm for them. It's not just for the protection of the clients.

Agreed. Though, I think it would be better to just have a safe and free of charge FWB. Haha.

I'm not sure how well they could be regulated.

Yes, but they should just be regulated.

- Weekly STD checks
- Condoms must be used
- Girls/Guys must be screened before applying to the brothel
- Girls/Guys must also have a test in advance before coming to the brothel

I know this would make things more difficult, but would cut down on diseases or other things. I'm sure there are even more things that could be done also.

Frankly, I don't really understand why the sex trade is even illegal. I truly feel like the government could make a LOT of money off of a government regulated (and highly taxed) sex industry. A LOT. People already pay a lot for sex in many situations and no matter how high the price went, I'm quite sure those would could afford it would keep paying.

I definitely agree there should be regulations, but I think it would only be beneficial in the end.

as long as both parties are consenting, safety measures are in place, then who cares.

it seems like a good idea if they are regulated and treat their employees well. it certainly seems much safer for the workers, and i'm all for that.

Yes, for the reasons I listed in "2" on this topic.

Prostitution is not going to end anytime soon. So why not make it legal? That way it can be monitored, taxed and safer for the women involved.
