I think you are also missing the point futsanglung is making. If you can not stop it then make it le ...

There are a raft of alternatives in between. Such as decriminalisation of the actual act of prostituion but still keeping it illegal and then going after the patrons of prostitutes, as well as the pimps and madams. This is the method adopted in Sweden and they have reduced prostitution very successfully.  Medical screening doesn't require legalisation. In NSW for many years the prostitutes collective (sex workers collective) and at least one medical clinic provided free regular HIV and STD checks to working girls despite prostitution being illegal. They also provided accurate information on STD's and their prevention as well as handing out free condoms to the sex workers. They had free access to not only street workers but also those working in brothels. China should look at alternatives and parading the girls naked in the street doesn't work. They should do that to the clients. No clients, no prostitution.

I do not condone nor condemn the prostitution. My view is that real men don't need to use prostitutes nor commit rape, they use will power to curb their sexual desires if they don't have a sex partner.

If that is your case! Would you like to see your mother, wife and daughter(s) as prostitutes?

Different point.

The vast majority of sex workers choose that way of life, if they want to be paid and others wish to pay then where is the problem?

Your points are valid to reduce or control prostitution.
But one has understand that prostitution mostly is victimless crime and both parties involved  are doing it with each other consent. Why real men should curb his desire  to use prostitute if he is willing to pay and the other party is willing to provide service for the money ?

**** I would not involve rape in this discussion because it is totally different topic

I would suggest you go and find out a lot more about human trafficking, prostitution and the sex trade before you make such blanket assertions.  Some millions of women world wide are in enforced prostitution either to pay off debts accrued by their families or as slaves.  A good place to start is the UN resources on the matter.

Prostitution is anything but a victimless crime and those who are there willingly are few and far between in fact, most have no choice, it's either sell your body or stave in many parts of the world. Then there is the exploitation angle. Sex tourists are pirahas of the worst kind, they travel to poor regions in search of cheap sex and do not consider the damage they inflict. If they were half decent human beings they'd pay full western rates now wouldn't they?

Let me ask you a question, have you ever used a prostitute? Have you ever interviewed prostitutes or seen them die from HIV/AIDS? Have you seen the wreckage that is a living corpse often associated with sex trafficking, or the impossible debts, the beatings and the rape involved in breaking the woman's spirit?  I doubt if you have.

Discussion closed. This topic keeps rearing it's ugly head on this BBS with regular monotony and has been done to death.

Moslem men don't pay for sex.  Donkeys and goats are free.
