Jackie22, IMO you're wrong. You should have watched the Penn and Teller show "Bullshit" the other week. From the preview on the "Bullshit" website:

"Everyone knows that prostitution is practiced throughout the land. Where it is legal - in only a few Nevada counties, prostitution is vigorously regulated and monitored by the State of Nevada Health Department. The women submit to compulsory medical tests for STDs. No one is forced to work as a prostitute. Pimps don't exist. HIV has never been detected. The women earn regular paychecks and tips. Some even get vacation and sick days. And they pay taxes! It's BULLSHIT that it's illegal for two consenting adults to have sex with each other!"

Of course, where prostitution is illegal in the USA, (almost everywhere) you have pimps, crack whores, violence against women etc.

Thanks Gaz - good post and I believe you --- but why do you go there?

Chris - you re right about the prostitution - except the countries where women are brought in and enslaved as prostitutes.

Jackie - as much as we don't like to look at it males (usually boys) are pimped a lot.

I've never used pot or any other illegal drug because I am so obsessive/compulsive I know I wouldn't do just a little. And sad to say I never knew enough to ask for money for sex.

Scubaldy: "except the countries where women are brought in and enslaved as prostitutes."

That's the point, prostitution isn't legal in those countries.

TQ... I figure he's only kidding... let's hope! smile

Oh and Chris... sounds like the legal prostitution is still very small and unknown to most ppl. In that case, glad to hear it's being regulated and at least giving these women more rights... but personally I don't think I'd choose to sell my body for money.

Oh here's more info on prostitution in Nevada:
About 30 legal brothels existed in the state in January 2004, employing about 300 female prostitutes at any given time. All but the smallest ones operate as follows: as the customer is buzzed in and sits down in the parlor, the available women appear in a line-up and introduce themselves. If the customer chooses a woman, the price negotiations take place in the women's room, which are often overheard by management. The house normally gets half of the negotiated amount. If the customer arrives by cab, the driver will receive some 20% of whatever the customer spends; this is subtracted from the woman's earnings. Typical prices start at US$100 and average about $300 for half an hour of intercourse and oral sex. The prostitutes almost never kiss on the mouth. Brothels do not have preset prices, the only known exception being Shady Lady brothel on Route 95, approximately 30 miles north of Beatty. Generally, the closer a brothel is to Las Vegas, the higher the prices. Thus Sheri's Ranch and Chicken Ranch, both located in Pahrump, are on the whole more expensive than other brothels. Sheri's Ranch is the larger of the two, and may have upwards of 20 prostitutes on its premises at any given time. It is also the more expensive of the two, and generally the most expensive legal brothel in Nevada.

Because by law brothels are not allowed to advertise in Clark County, some visitors to Las Vegas are not aware of their existence.

Brothel prostitutes work as independent contractors and thus do not receive any unemployment, retirement or health benefits. They are responsible for paying their own taxes, which many neglect, since it is mainly a cash business. The women typically work for a period of several weeks, during which time they live in the brothel and hardly ever leave it. They then take some time off. It has been argued that the tight control that brothels exert over the working conditions precludes the women from legally being classified as independent contractors.

Since 1986, when mandatory testing began, not a single brothel prostitute has ever tested positive for HIV. The mandatory condom law was passed in 1988.

A study conducted in 1995 in two brothels found that condom use in the brothels is consistent and sexually transmitted diseases are accordingly absent. The study also found that few of the prostitutes use condoms in their private lives.

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

Hey Harriette

I was previously married here in Belize to a dutch girl and we had a child and when he was 3 years old we split up she retunred to holland to live with my son, I remained here in Belize.

So since then every 5 to 6 weeks I have travelled to Holland to see my son and be a part of his life,

Expensive I hear u say but not really as I do a lot of trade shows so would always time my trips to co-inside with the dive shows and right after head over, I always fly continental so for example a flight to a show in NY from Belize is about $550-600 and I could add the Amsterdam leg on for an additional $250 so it worked out that I only paid a few hundred dollars to fly and then of course the miles piled up for some free flights so all it really took was a bit of effort.

A quick note about protitution which is legal in Holland it seems they have No problems whatsover the girls even have to pay taxes and are protected by the Police.
It very public in Amsterdam with the red light district and it gives a new meaning to window shopping, I actually took My dad and his girlfriend for a tour of the red light district when they visited for my sons birthday it was hilarious to see my dads face with all the girls in the windows.

Holland is a great place and they do seem to have done some things right which on the surface do not seem to have had a negative impact on the participants.

The big difference between sex for money and sex for free is that sex for money costs less.
