  • Prostitution is just downright gross

    How could you feel proud to put a price on yourself. Even if someone pays $5000 to you for sex, $5000 will eventually run out. There is no price for your body. You are priceless. Your body is worth much more than just a pleasure thrill. It just means you have no respect for yourself, and you have to resort to a dirty lifestyle. I think it's just very dirty

  • We really to change our laws.

    I think that prostitution is morally wrong and should be erraticated from society for several different reasons.

    Prositution is not a voluntary profession. A common way is to lure people with a prospect of having a secure job but end up as sex slaves. Every year thousand of people are traffic for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Even counties such as the Netherlands are thinking of criminalizing it due to the the fact that the dangerous aspects of prostitution is still present. There have been a number of instances where regulated brothels had to shut down because of pimping and human trafficing. What ends up happening is that counties with legalization brings more sex tourism and not enough Dutch people are willing to join the trade. To support the demand these places resort to violence. Why should prostitution be legal when people have to be tricked forced into it. Pimps in uses fear as a weapon and victims will be afraid to draw attention to the fact that he or she is in there by force. In this

  • Prostitution makes a woman's life hell

    It isn't natural or normal for a woman to have to give herself to lots of men. It uses all her time and is physically and emotionally exhausting. It involves sharing ones body, so involves sharing the deepest private arenas of ones soul. It takes away a woman's ability to earn money, or make a home, or be cherished by a husband or partner. It ruins her reputation. It takes her chance to practise spiritual feelings about stuff. It leaves the woman with bad memories, held deeply in her biological and emotional feelings about herself. It degrades her normal relationships. It forces her to have sexual experiences with people she doesn't like. It forces a woman to treat her body/figure/appearance like a cheap commodity, rather than than treating herself like a human being with feelings, emotions and spiritual sentiments. It exploits a woman's personality, so she has to give continuously/artificially. It takes time/space from raising children. It even turns children away from women. And in the background of her mind, she has to worry if she is disapproved by God/Universe and if there is an afterlife. It wastes everything and creates a terrible situation for her soul re: her relationship to God and Wholesomeness.

  • Prostitution is disgusting

    It is nothing more than human trafficking. There are many innocent victims lured into it because of poverty. It has become a means to an end for drug addicts. It is exploitative and dangerous. It tears away self respect and dignity. Both men and women need to stand up and have some self respect and dignity.

  • Prostitution is immoral

    Prostitution is an immoral enterprise, that should not become legal in the United States of America. Prostitution often involves coercion. Many times people become prostitutes only because they are homeless, uneducated, and lacked good opportunities in life. Also, prostitution often is exploitative in that the pimp or madam does very little and takes most of the profit. Also, prostitution is degrading to the woman, as they are treated as mere objects. Prostitution is an immoral behavior that I hope to God doesn't become legal in this great country.

  • Sex should be between lovers

    If it's a matter of morals, prostitution is definitely wrong. We shouldn't be teaching others that it is an acceptable way of life. Selling your body for material gain is unacceptable. It spreads diseases and completely demolishes the ideas of companionship and love. Sex should be between two people that know each other, and have feelings for each other. NOT between two strangers.

  • Morally yes

    Let me start with a "wow" for the last sentence to my right. Moving onward, prostitution is morally wrong behavior, but I'm all for legalizing it. I think if it's regulated and taxed relentlessly it would be a lot safer and provide some financial gain for this country, which is a better outlook than making it illegal since it's going to happen regardless.

  • Wroooong in all ways

    Prostitution is wrong. Not because it is inherently wrong, but because at the current time it undermines the equality of women.

  • No argument needed

    Lets be real with ourselves,

    if you took a moment to step back and ask yourself "is this okay?" and honestly just instantaneously said yes, then thats you and you have to live with yourself.

    But chances are you had to come up with a number of reasons to justify it.

    If you ever have to come up with a plethora of reasons to explain whats moral or immoral, chances are its because its immoral and you have to rationalize it.

    For those looking for empirical answers of some sort, go feed yourself that pat on the back corndog you want so badly, because you might not get one. This is one of those things that are generally felt with a clear right or wrong. Perhaps that instinctive feeling of right and wrong may come from upbringing, but perhaps that happened for a good reason.

    Just because one can argue better, doesnt mean that the right answer cannot be derived from an inherent feeling we all know we have.

  • Poor use of talents

    According to Google prostitution is defined as "the unworthy use of ones talent for personal or financial gain". Its not wrong, society just dislikes it,because of the stigma it attracts. It also destroys an individuals opportunities for future employment . For example it is uncommon to find a President who was an ex prostitute.

  • Consenting adults are more natural that the repressive environment of the 'moral' crowd.

    The big bias is that the women who work in the sex industry are 'victims'. The people who victimize these women are those who believe they are victims. In a open society where we haven't pushed prostitution into the criminal underworld we can make sure that the girls are CONSENTING, clean and monitored and SAFE. Beyond that ANYTHING done between 2 CONSENTING adults behind closed doors is perfectly fine. That's private, payment for time is no big deal. You hire a person with muscles to life things, that's using their body. A woman has exactly the same right. These women when it's done PROPER and in the absence of all the this backwards pseudo christian morality are not having sex with dozens or hundreds of men per day as these ignorant bible thumping fools believe. They are able to select, able to reject, able to choose. Many take pride in both their skills and providing a good service. It's in the places where the moral morons rule that you have children in filthy conditions and the drugs and disease and all those things they use as their counter argument. THEY CAUSE IT!! The anti group are the ones most likely to demean, they're the ones who keep it in the criminal world, they're the ones who vilify sex so their preachers can continue to suppress their natural urges until they're touching altar boys. And they think THEY have the truth of it? They're fools, pure and simple, and deluded and ignorant and at best a group that I PITY more than any honest working girl. And as for those who claim it's not natural to have sex with many partners. Again a conclusion based on their made up morality. Even in the animal kingdom among animals who bond FOR LIFE, the genetics of the offspring show that the females DO get their baby juice from sources OTHER than their partners. Hell I know a girl myself, nurse, who has at least 2 new guys per week and has been doing that (and her girlfriends too) for more than 10 years. Women are every bit as sexual a creature as men, but again these morons who believe it's more natural to repress than express push everything to the un-natural opposite and warp people and society.

  • Because of family

    I conform :
    How could you feel proud to put a price on yourself. Even if someone pays $5000 to you for sex, $5000 will eventually run out. There is no price for your body. You are priceless. Your body is worth much more than just a pleasure thrill. It just means you have no respect for yourself, and you have to resort to a dirty lifestyle. I think it's just very dirty

  • I do not think so

    Seriously, there is nothing morally wrong about prostitution. It is a job just like any other - providing a service against payment. Sometimes the prostitute doesn't feel like doing it, but sometimes I don't feel like doing my 8-to-5 office job either.

    There's nothing wrong with selling (or rather, renting) your body. An actor rents out his/her body every time they go on stage or in front of the camera, as do models and dancers. Singers rent out their vocal cords. Manual labourers rent out their muscles. Scientists rent out their brains.

    Prostitution does not "encourage infidelity". The married man (or woman) who would go with a prostitute would just as easily cheat with the new secretary or the postman. You might as well lock everyone into a chastity belt, and in marriage exchange keys.

    As for STDs, that has nothing to do with the morality of prostitution

  • Prostitution is not worse than...

    Many other forms of behavior. Take gold diggers for example. What are they, if they are not masked prostitutes? Or so many people who enjoy one night stands. Sex for entertainment, it's so big this days, and it is socially acceptable. Or cuckolding, or cheating, or open relationships... We have forsaken all traditional beliefs about relationships, but still some people claim that prostitution is wrong.

  • Sex has always been a currency.

    Prostitution is the offer of sex for money or goods or value. Unless the prostitute is being coerced or forced, she consents to having sex with a man in return for something else.

    Sex is used as a currency even in marriages and normal relationships. For example, the withholding of sex can be used to get something. Or let's take a situation where a husband does something special for his wife's birthday. His wife does not feel that frisky that night, yet consents to sex. Did she consent because she felt like she owed her husband something for the service he provided her that day? This is a prime example of sex as a currency, and if it's allowed in marriages, I don't see why it should be banned in a less subtle form.

  • Not in itself.

    Prostitution, as defined as the act of paying an individual money in order to have consensual sexual intercourse with them, is not and could not possibly be defined as 'wrong', as the entire event is a consensual agreement between two adults. Of course, if the prostitute is only offering her services under duress, or is being coerced into doing so, that's another story. Likewise, if we're talking about child prostitution, then by definition the 'prostitute' in this instance is unable to give informed consent, or indeed any consent, and thus the act becomes unethical.

    The simple act of allowing one's consent to be given only if certain considerations are made, in this case only if money changes hands, is not and cannot be unethical or 'immoral' in itself, however.

  • Prostitution is morally not wrong.

    It is morally correct because both parties are willing to do this. And if you talk about practically what happens is wrong that women are dragged into such profession in early age ,kidnapped .If such things are happening then it is the most morally incorrect thing .But morally you can have sex to whom money requires and willing to have sex with you!

  • It is not immoral.

    First of all, let's distinguish between how three different types of relationships are held together, and then I'll prove why prostitution is not immoral. "Friendships" are held together by common values/virtues, shared personal interests, or compatible personalities, with no sexual intention or desire between them. "Partner/Short-term" is a relationship that is held together by physical attraction and sexual desire only, with little to no interest in personality. "Spousal/Long-term" relationship is a mix between these two, because the bond of a friendship and the physical intimacy of a partnership are necessary components to a loving relationship.

    We see that from this distinction, a critical feature arises from an analysis of a "Spousal/Long-term" relationship, namely that if there is no sexual interest, then the relationship perishes and defaults into a friendship. Likewise, if personalities and values conflict in the same spousal relationship but the sexual element persists, then it becomes a partnership. Love is exclusively found in the spousal relationship, and not otherwise, because the implication of "love" is personal. However, a spousal relationship cannot occur without sexual intent. Therefore, true love cannot occur without sexual intent.

    One objection is that you have sexual intentions/desires toward someone, if and only if, you are in love and since you cannot love a stranger (prostitute), then you can't possibly enjoy the sex. But, in order to fall in love, one must be mutually compatible and sexually interested. There is however, a distinction between mutual compatibility and sexual interest, otherwise we would have sexual desires toward our friends. So, one can have sexual intentions without falling in love.

    Finally, if we agree that spousal relationships are good and not immoral, then we also have to agree that personal compatibility and sexual interest is also good and not immoral, which means that good and immoral are independently predicated of sexual interest and personal compatibility. Therefore, sexual interest alone is a good and not immoral, which means that partnerships are not immoral. Since prostitution is a partnership, then it is not immoral.

  • Prostitution should be legal

    Prostitution would raise revenue if you create a five dollar sin tax. Prostitution could raise up to 2 million dollars for each state every year. The only reason people say it is not morally correct is because it is not the christian thing to do but last time I checked America is not a theocracy.
