Pro

Prostitution is the oldest profession in the world. It is a lucrative and honest hard working blue collar job.(2)

The young men and women in this field of study not only have specialized skills, but also can provide a great stress release mechanism for society that rivals cigarettes and alcohol without the health effects.

Taxing people who use prostitutes could provide a major bump in the U.S. economy and could also provide serious benefits for married couples who have "lost the spark" in their relationship. Studies have shown that couples with an open marriage and ones who cheat on the spouses can have longer more loving relationships due to the fact they find a renewed appreciation for there loved one after sleeping with somebody else (1)

It is bad to pay for sex. Why pay for it when it's for FREE! at your moms.
In addition, its not needed in society. It makes cities and people look trashy.
