Materialsim at its best!

The education system actively teaches a materialistic philosophy.  If we take that philosophy to extremes, then the human body is just another commodity. So one solution might be to look at the nation's educational philosophy. I'm not saying it will solve the problem, but will certainly be a step in the right direction.

I don't think that 60 billion dollars are all taxed worldwide.  It is just somehow like the drug money, which is not as easily to be control as legal gamblings.


Porn is taxed to a large extent, since we are talking videos and magazines.

Pay attention to the entire benefit

Once you legalize the prositution, you will create a grey zone for the pron-trafficing, which will cost you much to crack down...
...


I agree with Afri_simba .
We should pay attention to the entire benefit of the society ,just as the   old proverb says, don't  get a gengely but lose a watermelon .
I believe porn is eventually harmful to the society especialy to young people.
Neo-Confucion  is a good idea.Why don't advocate it ?
Acquaintance is providence.

But that is just your belief. We can't run a society based on beliefs. Oh, I guess we can; they do it all the time in the Middle-East, all those successful and advanced countries...

And what is "porn-trafficking"? Porn = pornography = writings (and derivatives) about sex.

Neo-Confucianism, or 理学, is a bad idea because it is partly derived from buddhism and daoism (理学 = 儒家 + 道 + 佛), i.e. has religious elements that are not suited for a modern world. The original Confucian idea of male supremacy is another bad element that doesn't cut it for a modern China. Let's not talk about the meta-physics; if those ideas were still around, China would never have gone to space.

This is a general problem in many societies.

Unemployment Insurance

If you are unemployed you must seek employment to get insurance check from the government and if pornography is legalized along with prostitution you would   have to seek out employment in any field.

This makes it exclusively the problem of people who are most likely to be changing jobs or out of work for a time.  The protection of the government to make these occupations illegal is for the benefit of the large majority of the World's citizens.

Many people would not want to take a "new job" and have their "new employer be the very same person they just got paid to have sex with."

I wonder where is the mankind's future!
    You are very realistic and always focus your eyes on something like pelple's salary, a country's economy etc. I won't deny the fact that prostitution increase some people's income,but I believe that will do deep harm to all the people eventually.
     Yes ,like Vincentmah  said, there is supply and demand in any  good marked economy .But I want to say:
    Demand is not always reasonable.
