@mallorn, pardon my aggression. I’ve just heard lots of arguments for prostitution and porn and it grinds my gears sometimes. I am not some kind of Archie Bunker kind of guy, but I do believe that there are some certain things that are good and some certain things that are bad. Anyway, the low status of prostitutes in society is a cultural norm at least here in the U.S. and has been one for some time….I don’t predict it will diminish any time soon. It is certainly part of the problem, but many people attempting to take up the prostitute’s life will suffer greatly waiting for the cultural shift. That is why I think prostitution is better left unencouraged – the shift may never happen anyway.
I also don’t think prostitution is healthy for the reasons i’ve said, and you’ve even said so yourself, it can cause mental health issues for the prostitutes themselves. Sexier is subjective though – personally, I guess this is where my respect beliefs do come into play – I think the notion of paying for sex is quite lame, and if a person has to resort to paying for it, they have some problems. I’ve gone sexless for all of my 27 years, and I would never ever consider it.
