Here, here! I do think it should be given some serious thought, and if it is to be legalised, perhaps some strict controls like Holland.Time to legalize the world's oldest profession?

If i was a gambling man i'd take that bet!I'm going to open a book on how long it will take before "tompatrick" shows up on this thread.
How true is that..3 reasons it wont happen! They make too much sense!
It already is underground. If you punish the users then you will see a sharp decline in demand for prostitution and therefore a sharp decline in prostitution. It won't eliminate it, but it is a much better alternative than legalising it and making it more common.What you're suggesting is to push it underground and not have it regulated in some way. I propose the alternative, clean it up, take the criminals out of the equation (where possible) and tax it.
no actually, the prostitutes and pimps are criminalised at present, not the users.The OP point is far too sensible and effective to ever be implemented.
Criminalise, prosecute and publicise the users. Isn't that what we've been doing since the foundation of the state and it hasn't really be working to well now has it?
