Make sure you read the post before you respond, I did say "consenting adults".
Because if they can make money off of it, they want their fair share

Because according to many. . . there is way too big a chance that it won't be that.

I am not saying whether I agree or not agree. Just that the issue has been debated here in the last election.

In fact, prostitution and sexual deviancy was much more rampant at other times in our history. We are actually pretty moral compared to the Greeks, Romans or medieval French. At least by our standards today.

Sometimes I think we lose perspective.
I watched that last night as well on the History Channel. My favorite part was the steamboat that was nicknamed "The Floating profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfilterprofanityfilterhouse". That was classic.

If its a business they pay taxes, and the government gets their $$$.

I'm for eliminating the Petty crimes "like consenting adults paying for sex" and increasing the penalties on the serious crimes. Make the penalty match the crime, if its a slap on the wrist why have it? A law should have a circumstance that "you don't want a part of". A 125$ fine is hardly worth the paperwork.

I think it may be that by keeping it illegal, the police have the right to pick up a girl, ID her, check her age, get her away from her pimp, etc.

I don't know if the argument is truly legitimate, just that it was one of the arguments presented by many around here, including those whom I thought would be for legalization.

The street walker scenario (IMO) should remain illegal, with some heavy penalties for hookers, pimps, and Johns. Its a tragedy that in our advanced society we can't protect our youth better.

The brothels seem to be relatively harmless to the public. As a resident in a state that has legalized Prostitution and areas where it is not legal (Las Vegas / Clark County), I think the legalized areas have a better control over the issue.
