Prostitution. Should it be legalised?

Is it time for prostitution to be legalised? I mean it would have been much easier for the 95 year old hero to have just driven to the local knocking shop. The chancellor of the exchequer would be able to collect tax from the slappers and disenchanted punters would be able to complain to trading standards

I don't see why not, lots of countries have, might stop some of the sex slave trade as well.

I wouldn't personally do the job, but happy to become a pimp!
 
I thought prostitution was legal.

Living off immoral earnings (pimping) is illegal, and I've read about various 'initiatives' (trendy PC buzz words make me want to vomit) to discourage kerb crawling, but the actual act is not illegal.
 
And you get a free maid thrown in.......
Seriously though, sure it should be legalised, what a nonsense, a lot of slags give it up for free, might as well get some income out of it, stop the slappers claiming benefits perhaps.
Cut down on rape, not sure about that though.

Agree - it should be legalised. Might bring the price down too ... not that I know anything about this sort of thing of course. :roll:

BZ Streaky. You are correct: it IS legal. Like you have also said, what is illegal is pimping, etc.

The legal situation in the UK is documented here:

Don't worry - it's easy to read - it's written for undergraduates!

I'm on a Contract in Amsterdam at the moment. I reckon most of you know the score over here and I can honestly say that legalisation would be the best thing to happen. I actually got talking to one of the lasses who had just got off duty. She was saying that prostitution had been legal in holland for as long as she could remember (I'd put her at about 30-ish) 70% of the "Girls" ('cos some of them ain't 8O ) are pimp-free, They pay tax, Have regular medical check-ups, and pay tax. Believe it or not they also have their own Union called the "Red Thread" Which was actually formed to pressurise the Gov't into letting them pay tax! This was so they could prove employment to get houses/credit cards etc. If you walk around the area there are a few noticable differences to anywhere else in Europe -

a/ You feel safe - there are so many CCTV cameras and police it's unreal.
b/ The only Drugs you see are in coffee shops

the Lass went on to say that the average cost for services was 50 Euros (about 34 quid) so Hig, work it out. How much would it cost you on average mate!

(About 34 notes/week for me - Definitely cheaper! :lol: )

If it were legalised and regulated in the UK do you think you might get it free if you’re on income support? Or maybe JPA might have a section to claim it back when “geographically relocated†(Drafted).
