It Ain’t Tricking If Ya’ Got It- Prostitution or Perks of a Relationship?
Let me start by saying that I actually have nothing against prostitution; it’s just not something that I would choose for myself, nor would I suggest to others. But I do feel that if a woman doesn’t have a problem having sex with men who are willing to spend their hard-earned money on something that they could probably get for free, who is it really hurting? The least the government could do for the practice is tax it and regulate it for the safety of public health.
Prostitution is in fact legal in more countries in the world than it is illegal. In 2002, Brazil’s Ministry of Labor added the title of “sex worker” to its list of occupations. Sex workers there can contribute to the official government pension fund and receive benefits when they retire. In Australia, prostitution itself is legal but laws vary in different states in regard to street solicitation and brothels. Prostitution has always been legal in Canada where women are more likely to actively choose a career in a sex profession because of the absence of legal risk and general acceptance of the practice.
