Ancient Rome Fresco from the Pompeii brothel.



Main article: Prostitution in ancient Rome
Prostitution in ancient Rome was legal, public, and widespread. Even Roman men of the highest social status were free to engage prostitutes of either sex without incurring moral disapproval,[5] as long as they demonstrated self-control and moderation in the frequency and enjoyment of sex. Latin literature refers often to prostitutes. Real-world practices are documented by provisions of Roman law that regulate prostitution, and by inscriptions, especially graffiti from Pompeii. Some large brothels in the 4th century, when Rome was becoming officially Christianized, seem to have been counted as tourist attractions and were possibly even state-owned.[6] Prostitutes played a role in several Roman religious observances, mainly in the month of April, over which the love and fertility goddess Venus presided. At the same time, prostitutes were considered shameful: most were either slaves or former slaves, or if free by birth relegated to the infames, people utterly lacking in social standing and deprived of most protections accorded to citizens under Roman law.[7] Prostitution thus reflects the ambivalent attitudes of Romans toward pleasure and sexuality.[8]

Yes of course slavery was wrong , but that is history...................since we are at history i ...

Right...so if slavery is now condemned universally, why can't prostitution?

The argument that 'its always been around' doesn't mean squat to me.

There were a lot of things that 'always were around' that are not now.

There is nothing wrong with making yourself attractive to the opposite sex.

I'm not against sex.  Sex is great.  Men should be attracted to women and visa versa.

Nothing wrong with that.  We're human beings...that's how we roll.

But I do agree with your point on the media and exploitation.

Because unlike slavery prostitution is legal registered business in many countries and as long as person is not forced to it you have no right to interfere.

What two consenting adults do is not your business.

do they do it for free and for love or do they do it in exchange for something it is not relevant.

Many famous females today did it to step up ladder and get at a top of food chain.

it doesn't have to be for money................you can not criminalise everything you dislike.

live and let others live.
