    No, but as I said. They are required by law to wear a specific condom.

    Wrong, generally because of the risk the women doing it are leaving themselves open to and the appauling treatment by gang ring-leaders. If it were possible to practice it in a regulated, licenced environment where women were fully protected by the law and there was some form of legitimate security, then maybe that would be a difficult story, but in it's present state no, women should never be reduced to this.
    How come you have so much neg? All the posts I've seen you make have been fine..:confused:

    That's funny; I despise bigots who project their naïve, arbitrary 'values' and sentimental conceits onto an industry which at its core represents the mutually-beneficial convergence of people who care about money more than sex, with people who care about sex more than money.


    A bigot by definition is someone who is intolerant or bias in regards to someone's opinion or lifestyle. By that definition, anyone who is intolerant to anything can be classed as a bigot - so its obviously expected that we include context into this.

    Those who are intolerant of prostitution are not bigots for them it is not an issue of "making ends meet", but the alarming disregard for any moral principle not to mention the potential harm the person will face. In a society where we atleast admire those who protext and value their sexuality and bodies - we find it unacceptable that others in turn will open their legs or undo their pants for some money. Having said that, even though I profoundly am disgusted at the concept of selling your body - I have empathy for those who are pressured into such a lifestyle and by no means will I criticise them - but the concept itself is appauling.

    If we were to look at the question from another point of view e.g. "Is it right or wrong when the person doesn't need the money?" then I think you'll find most people will criticise it for the reasons mentioned above. And considering the context of those reasons, although you may be justified in criticising naiveity about the idea - you cannot touch the belief that selling your body in general is morally and ethically wrong.

    If people find me questionining that a sign of bigotry, then I'll direct them by all means to my middle finger.

    Definitely wrong. You can tell it's wrong just by looking at it, the letter order just doesn't seem right.

    I don't think it's right or wrong.But I think if two consenting adults come to an arrangement where money changes hands for sex then that is no one elses business.

    That view is rather simplistic but it is a fact that it is rather idealistic to think a blanket ban on prostitution would mean the nasty parts of the business would go away. Such as pimping, underage prostitution or trafficking. It makes far more sense to have it legalised and regulated , where the Police and local councils could have a licensing system for establishments ,and their resources could be used to crack down on the gangsters who attach themselves to the business rather than go after fat middle aged men or some girl who wants to supplement her student loan. Just generalisations but I think my point has been made.

    But of course they who advocate making prostitution illegal care more about a femminist and moral agenda and not necesscarily about those girls welfare.It's more about men or to put it blunty their husbands pulling a fast one . There are some very nasty people who would love to 'regulate' this industry and those girls if it was made illegal and driven underground.And I doubt they give two ***** about womens rights. But as it always is with New Labour, go after the easy targets for a 'moral victory'.

    Aside from the token incendiary, dogmatic, populist, hysterical rant, do you have any coherent opinion on this matter? Because if not, I'll 'direct you by all means to my middle-finger'.

    my opinion: Its sick,and degrading and a shameful thing. Why buy love? wait you cant do that! :rolleyes: i despise anyone involved in it, even if it turns out to be a good friend
    You aren't buying love though, are you? That's not even what is on offer, it's sex.

    People are free individuals, and if they want to sell themselves then they should be allowed to.

    The only 'moral' issue with prostitution is when people get abused/raped as a result, or when going into that profession isn't their choice. This can be sorted with regulation and licencing.

    It is unfortunate when people feel that their life/financial situation makes prostitution the only option for them but that is life. They ultimately have the choice, however hard or seemingly unavoidable it is. Such people will probably become prostitutes anyway, and regulation could help them have a cleaner, safer time of it.

    Look, this thread is already about whether prostitution is right or wrong.

    The question so far has been answered regardless of whether you're saving for university, a car, a Pot Noodle or a Playstation Three.

    Substitute 'reputable escort-agency' for 'parlour' and it'd strike me as a perfectly reasonable proposition (assuming that any prospective boyfriend of yours wouldn't object, which is another matter entirely). As it is, however: wrong.
