Hi. I'm arguing for the legalization of Prostitution.

As the late great George Carlin said "Why should prostitution be illegal? Selling is Legal. Sex is Legal. Why isn't selling sex legal? Why should it be illegal to sell something that it's legal to give away?"

Thank you for letting me debate you. First of all, prostitution is very bad. The bible advises not to get intimate until after marriage. Unless who you're paying is your husband/wife, it should be illegal.

The bible isn't a good enough reason to ban something. We live in a country that says in our constitution "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...". Which means we can't have a law based on the teachings of any holy book whether it be The Bible, The Quran, The Vedas, or The Torah. The bible also says not to eat shellfish and not to wear clothes sewn together with more than one fabric but those aren't laws. We don't base our laws on what the bible says. We base our laws and what makes sense. And I can't think of any good reason why Prostitution should be banned.

Even in Nevada, I would recommend not having sex with any prostitute other than your wife.

No man should have sex with a prostitute, unless he is married to her.
