Prostitution, both regulated and non regulated should without a doubt be legal. Let's start with regulated prostitution. Regulated prostitution means having prostitution held in a either a corporate or small business brothel in which certain aspects of the business are monitored by federal and state law including things like weather or not workers are being paid minimum wage, as well as the safety of the workers and customers. Since in this scenario the workers are being paid to give their customers sexual pleasures, rules such as the requirement of condoms and the need for weekly STD tests are nessicary, and are in fact already in place. The following links show how these kinds of laws for already legal Nevada brothels make these brothels extremely safe for the workers/customers. Today tests for all of the major STD's are mandatory weekly and when employees return from vacation. The only thing that is not mandatory (according to one of the articles in the links below) is pap smears, which I think should not only be mandatory to these places (despite how safe they already are without them) but free for every woman. So once pap smears are also covered and mandatory I don't see any risk with having brothels into profitable businesses big and small across the country. Sure, if brothels become national mainstream maybe someone will get infected with something serious like HIV once or twice a year, but how is that any different than the few people every year that have a heart attack from eating at McDonalds? And if you're now convinced that since regulated prostitution is great and because of that there should be nothing more illegal than non-regulated prostitution, think again. Yes, non-regulated prostitution is very bad because it is dangerous for both the customers and the "employees" because there is no government to regulate it and make sure it is safe. However, do you really think that making it illegal and enforcing it strongly will stop it from happening? It's a black market that people know is dangerous. In fact this particular black market is probably the most stereotyped black market for being dangerous. If you want it to die down you've got to let the regulated market flourish and naturally the black market will go out of business. It's prohibition 101. Honestly, look at the statistics of regulated brothels. Would you rather have a small percentage of people infected from a regulated market or a large number of people infected from an unregulated market? This can help the economy big time, just like recreational marijuana has recently.

In my opinion there should be legalisation of prostitution in a country like india because in our country prostituion is ilegal and due to this many gents to fullfill their wishes (sex) they are atempting rapes and many innocent girl lifes are being affected.
If protitution is legal then there is a chance to see rapid fall of rape cases in our country becuse if prostitution is legal then there is no need for boys to harrase the girls and rape them instead they can opt for protitutes .

Will a bureaucrat be measuring anus diameter? If that's the case, then I might have a problem with it.

Male and female prostitutes? If it includes male, then I'm down.

Would it be regulated or unregulated? If unregulated I would be open to debating this with you (public health), but regulated legalization there is no argument besides lofty moral ones.
