You can lump all prostitution as immoral, but you cannot lump it all together as abusive. Some women choose to use sex as a source of income. Some do it pay bills, support themselves through college or to lead a luxury lifestyle. Still others do it because they enjoy having frequent sex with different partners and simply decide to earn an income while having fun. Some decide to do it as prostitutes others in the porn industry.

Why is it that if a woman chooses to to sell sex on an individual basis in a private setting it is illegal, but it's perfectly legal for a woman after an evening out with a man she just met to go back to his place and have sex?

Why is it legal to perform sex acts in pornographic films? The women and the men are still being paid to have sex. What makes that legal? Is it the camera? Is it the fact a third party is paying them to have sex?

I fail to see how it can be labeled as abuse just because a woman decides to get paid for something she was already doing or would do anyway.

Now before any moral police or abuse police jump in, keep in mind that I'm only discussing those that do so by personal choice and because they want to. Not because they are forced or feel they have no choice. I am aware of the other end of the spectrum and agree something should be done about that.

All that aside I think it is ridiculous for it to be illegal to buy sex, but not illegal to sell it! That's absurd. This just like the Fireworks laws in some U.S. States. Florida is notable for this. Huge fireworks stores are everywhere and it's perfectly legal to sell them. It is not however legal to buy or possess them for personal use.

No where that prostitution is legal, has it helped the sex workers have any better of a life.

So you are saying where it is illegal there are no problems?

And I understand from your words that there are NO women who pay for sex?  Hmmm, how about all the cougars in this world with their 'boy toys'?

And ALL these women are sex 'slaves'?  Where do you draw the line of prostitution?  Selling sex is prostitution.  Does that mean a mistress is a prostitute?  Does that mean many gold-diggers are prostitutes?  Because if so this world is full of 'unforced' sex workers.

Are these 'sex slaves' who work for themselves or through and 'agency' who make thousands of untaxed dollars a year, and live in housing that most people cannot afford,  categorized as slaves and taken advantage of by men?
Try convincing the women who work in the brothels of Nevada that you are right.

He paid money for her dinner.  He paid money for her drinks.  He paid money for a movie.  He paid money for many things.  So now she trades a  bit of sex for it.  In Jen's mind she must be an abused woman and prostitute.

Having sex is human nature.

Enslaving women for sex on demand and buying it is NOT human nature.

Animal sometimes has much more physical strength  and tricky tactics than Human being  in attacking their enemies, sometimes, due to true human know what the meaning of man and women. Reproduction and production don't contradict to each other, however, animal mentality still exist in some corner of some people's deepest mind.

I don't understand your point here.  Are you saying that prostitution should exist because its an outlet for rape or something?

I don't understand.
