Prostitution, of course is the exchange of sexual services for money. Depending on where you are reading this, it could be a punishable crime, permissible but unregulated or a legitimate regulated industry.
So, who has it right? Should the worlds oldest profession be legal today? According to a recent Zample, although small, so far 68% of us think it should be.
I will delve into the international stats after the sample has grown but for now, Unless you have religious based objections to sex out of wedlock full stop, then I would struggle to understand why anyone would belong to the 32%.
Even if you are against the sex trade for some other moral or ethical grounds, Surely we can all agree that its going to happen regardless? It has been going on FOREVER….. EVERYWHERE. Its better for all involved if the industry is run in safe, regulated environments such as brothels with security, regular STD checks etc Rather than by underground crime syndicates and vulnerable girls walking the streets.
As long as it is performed in a safe, respectable manner…. If you want to partake in the sex industry, for whatever reason…. I say, fill your boots son (Or, You go girl)!
As comedian Jim Jeffries so eloquently puts it after taking his disabled friend for a visit to the brothel:
“Arguably, you’re better off in Australia, f**king a prostitute (in a brothel) than picking up a girl in a bar… but you try explaining that to your girlfriend. its a f**king minefield!”
