If being a prostitute is illegal, then why is being a porn star allowed?

If you record everything that you sell then you can't dodge tax.

Or to give the lawmakers the benefit of the doubt, if it's recorded then there's less chance of abuse than meeting in someone's car.

Dunno why either is illegal. Who's the victim?

Er

both are illegal in some places


also, one is illegal in some places while the other isn't illegal in the same place

Also I'll have you know that prostitution and porn is legal if it takes place in a tax-paying location like a building. Then technically it's legal.

Fear of precedent, if anything. Say you ban porn actors from having sex on film... then Hollywood makes a movie where Keira Knightly and Leonardo DiCaprio have sex and it isn't banned. That's a double standard. And if you ban the Hollywood movie, where do you draw the line? Can they kiss on film? Hold hands?

Essentially, porn - like all film - is treated as art. It's a depiction of life. Prostitution is being paid for sex. There's no art in that.

The big question, as others have said, is why is prostitution illegal? Why is it okay to buy a girl drinks and dinner in a quest for sex, but not just to honestly pay her for it if she's so willing?

After all, essentially, sex costs money. At least prostitutes are honest about it.

Apart from in films they don't actually have sex, whereas in prostitution they do.

And if you have to pay for sex in any way then you're doing it wrong

Often the girl. A fair minority are in complete control of what they do. The vast majority, even those working in places where it's completely legal such as Germany, end up giving away unfair portions of their salary in order to work. It's even worse in shadier places where they are pretty much someones property.

Watch Blue is the Warmest Colour, the sex scenes are far more explicit and longer than some porn...

Prostitution is very much illegal in the UK, and the content of pornography is heavily restricted.

If you're not paying for sex in any way, you're probably doing it illegally...

Two things:

1) I didn't say it was.

2) This is the exact legal theory prostitutes use.

Well dating gets me sex and I don't pay for it, so by your logic it must be illegal.

This really. Street prostitution is only illegal because it's cash in hand work.

I've always either split the bill or we've alternated who pays.
