You have two choices really:
A) you spend loads of money in cleaning up, move the prostitutes and the customers in other places where all the problems will just start again.
B) you use properly the space you have, providing security and protecting both cutomers and prostitutes.
In Switzerland prostitution, depending on the cantons, it's legal...so why spending more money when with less one can achieve better results?
Same discussion could be used on light drugs.
And many other arguments...

You canīt eradicate prostitution, so make it a better business for profissionals and costumers is the obvious answer. Iīm not going to debate if itīs moral to pay for sex to a stranger, or receive it for a living, thatīs a whole new story. Unlike drugs (and other things), it satisfies a primal necessity from the human being, though drugs must still be discriminated individually - medical marijuana or recreative light drugs can be aproved and all type of drugs must be examine for itīs positive and negative effects and advantages. This is a sign of a developed country.

While men use these 'services' women will work in them. I don't agree with prostitution, legal or otherwise.

It's demeaning to women and does nothing to help equality between the sexes.

^^ But like drugs/alcohol/cigarets.. you cant totally control them. Best you can do is either legalize, provide alternatives or a safe place to carry out such behavior.

Suppose it depends on how liberal your society is. Can you ever imagine this in the UK?

While I tend to agree with you on this topic....as others stated, you can't stop it. Women are going to do it and some men are going to pay for it. It's among the oldest professions in existence. At least Switzerland has realized that it's unstoppable and is trying to at least make things safer.

And think about it.....ALL women get SOMETHING in exchange for sex....it's just a matter of exactly what they're getting....

I'm all for the safety angle but women will still be abused no matter what the safeguards.

Sadly, you're correct. You're also correct about this not doing anything to promote equality... In a way, it's a big step backwards for equality between sexes. Like I said, I agree with you on this. It is demeaning to women, and not just the ones doing it. It promotes the thought of women as objects (though if you saw how girls/women in the US dress, you'd wonder which is actually doing more harm....the prostitutes, or the parents that let their daughters dress like tramps).

ROFL Dude, you are so asking for it. I hope IB doesn't see this thread.

Canada is on the verge of legalizing prostitution. Nearly all the old laws have been struck down by the Supreme Court. I think now that the laws have been struck down, they are working on the logistics of legalizing it.

I'd like to see IB's thoughts on this subject...

Legalization and regulation would be the way to go given the world economy. Just think how much tax money would be saved due to the reduction in prosecutions for prostitution. Keep in mind, I don't agree with prostitution....but I also don't agree with governments telling people what they can and can't do with their own bodies...

Sex workers are workers like everybody else and sex is an activity like going to the gym. Ain't nothing demeaning or unequal about it. Sex workers deserve protection and decent working conditions. Religion and its fake morals deserve to vanish.

Morals have little, if anything, to do with religion. Not everyone's lives revolve around religion.

Here's the definition of morality for you.... http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/morality
And here's the definition of moral.... http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/moral

How is selling one's body, not demeaning? Since when has going to the gym resulted in a disease being passed from 1 person to another?

Yep. People forget about the saloon days in the US.

Just like with drugs:

Make it illegal and gangs will step up to offer the same service, only much more dangerous, expensive and lethal.

Make it legal with restrictions and still someone is profiting from it all (tobacco, beer)

Actually far, far more than you think. Pink eye and ring worm are more common that you want to think.

HIV/AIDS, Herpes, Gonorrhea, Syphilis....all of which are common among prostitutes...are also more common that most people want to think. Herpes being among the most common viral infections (infecting the majority of the earth's population). Most "cold sores" are the result of a Herpes type 1 infection....which prostitutes can easily transmit to "customers".... How many prostitutes do you think are going to simply take a day/night off just because they have a "cold sore"??
