prostitution is legal in the UK I think.

tbh, I never really got why it was banned in the first place. If two consenting Adults want to and agree to arrange the exchange of funds and participate in sexual indulgance what real right does any busybody have to chuck them in jail for it

why is porn allowed in some countries but not prostitution? , it's basically the same thing .. someone is getting paid for sex

The issue with prostitution isn't that there are two consenting adults, but that a lot of the time the prostitute is being forced into that situation. A lot of prostitutes are people who are being pimped out. Prostitution is illegal for that very reason.

Technically it isn't. Brothels are illegal.

Escorting is legal because you pay for their time not for sex.

Anything that takes place in this time is a choice made between two consenting adults.

then it should be illegal to force/coerce then.

but if sally who works in Sainsbury's wants to earn a bit of extra money on the side and through her own free will posts an advert somewhere and bill answers it. I don't see why bill should be outlawed for paying her for sex

I see your point, but it's hard for police to know whether an individual is truly consenting to sex or is being forced to, do you see what i mean? Like, i believe that prostitution can be made legal as long as the girls and guys are being protected but it's not likely to happen because a large percentage of prostitution is caused by the girl or boy being pimped out.

There's also the issue that prostitution is linked to drug use, not all of course, but a high percentage of it is, which again may put the police in a difficult situation.

ok, fair point.

I just don't believe it's right to ban something just because some people will misuse it.

people misuse practically everything. Who hasn't illegally downloaded an MP3 or illegally streamed a movie at some point in their life? very few. Should we just ban computers?

Firstly, prostitution doesn't fall down under the "misused" label, there are underground groups dedicated to smuggling and selling vulnerable boys and girls to brothels where they are mistreated, theatened, beat and forced to have sex with people. A lot of these people don't speak the language of the country and have had their papers taken away. I don't think its fair that you compare it to illegaly downloading a file. It's a human life you're talking about here.

Prostitution as it stands, can endanger a person's life. The police are the least of your concerns. Pimps don't like it when others enter their turf and although it might seem like a harmless thing to the girls or guys doing it at the time, they can get into some serious trouble with those people. This is why the law protects sex workers and prosecutes their pimps.

Those who pay for sex are seen as an accomplice of sorts since they are maintaining that marker open. The law is also there to deter clients so that pimps lose their buisness and stop doing it.
