    That's just a technicality and may not always be true. If I decided to make an amateur porn film, I could hire an actress and I could cast myself as the male actor. As far as I know it's not illegal to star in a porn film that you are funding yourself. In that situation it actually isn't different to prostitution other than the fact you are filming it.
    True, hence why I said that I wasn't really sure. That was the only reason I could think of!

    No-one would pay £200 to talk to a woman for an hour, however pretty she is. Don't be naive.
    Don't know about that. Depends if you include female solicitors and psychiatrists.

    No, because porn is also the act of doing porn, for the people actually doing it.
    Not everyone is a pornstar nowadays...

    Just to clarify, the act of soliciting a prostitute for money is legal, although it's very difficult to actually engage the services of a prostitute without breaking the law, as you can't do it in an organised way - i.e. through a brothel, agency or a pimp, the prostitute cannot advertise their services and you cannot solicit a prostitute in a public place. So unless you're good friends with a prostitute and just happen to decide... "why not" one night, in the privacy of your own home, then it's pretty hard to stay on the right side of the law.
    How is it hard ?

    If the act of advertising is illegal (even on the internet ?) then that's the prostitutes problem isn't it ? Surely viewing an advert is not illegal ? (be very surprised if this was wrong) and then contacting said prostitute over the phone is not illegal. Then you go to their home and as long as there is no more than two people in the apartment (in which case it becomes a brothel) then you are not breaking any laws then ?

    This was on Jeremy Kyle the other day (gap year tv please don't judge) and he pointed out how many adult websites there were advertising prostitutes and how it's not illegal to go through them and end up meeting someone (providing no more than 2 people are at the place again). Even the investigator they spoke to said they were only interested in things associated with human trafficking and forcing girls into it, brothels and people that worked on the streets.

    If a prostitute works from her apartment and you meet her there after arranging over the phone from an internet add (like Belle in secret diary) then it is actually pretty hard to be on the wrong side of the law from your point of view. They want to encourage more people to work like that because obviously getting rid of prostitution entirely isn't realistic.

    Well you can't rape and kill a computer screen. I think that has something to do with it.

    Not all porn is legal as there is a heavy exploitation, pimp factor to porn. I'm not against porn; only certain types, that is degrading to women. A lot of porn is based on males dominating females, a control scenario- where the female is made to feel worthless. As well, most pornstars are on drugs- and their pimps are often abusive, and drug pushers.

    What goes on between two consenting adults is absolutely no business of the state. The negative effects of prostitution would be diminished greatly if it was legalised and opened up to the free market.

    prostitution through soliciting on the streets is illegal. And it was made illegal to try and prevent girls turning to prostitution and keeping them off the streets, and obviously because other people didn't want to be harassed. Porn, however, is in the safety of a studio and the girl is less likely to be ripped off and earn a lot more money (im not glorifying porn in any way) but what i dont get, is you have to be 18 (to be in porn/watch porn..cant remember) and the legal age to have sex is 16.

    I'm not saying either one is right or wrong, but I don't get why having sex for money on camera is better than having sex for money in general :dontknow: Am I missing something? lol

    One is considered an art form, the other not. I think that's silly, though, both should be legal. If prostitution were legal the prostitutes would be safer, it would take business away from criminals and we could tax the hell out of it. It's win-win.
