Moral or immoral?

Not anyone's business but the hoe's and trick's. And the pimp's.

Unless it has some element of rape/nonconsentual sex, or if the prostitute is being forced to work for the pimp, then it wouldn't be right because it wouldn't be fully consentual. Otherwise I don't see how it's hurting anyone.
Or if the prostitute is working because she is living in poverty, which in my ideal world (:)) wouldn't exist. Then it would be a problem of poverty, not morality.

Whats with all your questioning whether things are moral or immoral? I mean, I question things at times, but for no other reason then to spark debate seems a bit weird. Give your opinion on it first, then lets work from there : )

Guy1: "Is prostitution moral or immoral?"
Guy2: "I Don't know, why do you have any?"
Guy1: "Morals?"
Guy2: "No, prostitutes."

i dont see any problem with it. the women are merely exchanging a commodity for money.

that said it is a farely nasty industry. alot of women are kidnapped from eastern europe and are forced into it. maybe if you legalized it it would remove the pimps and resolve that problem.

anyone know if there are still pimps in holland?

With all the corporate corruption and fucking capitalist scumbags we've got infesting our environment, if its "OK" to be a corporate scumbag, then in my opinion it should be "OK" to give sex for money.

i think there should be a law that as long as i paid anybody a set $50 they'd have to make it with me.
i think it would be great for society....
am i wrong?

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

One of the clearest examples of the fact that America is ruled by the bible. It REALLY pisses me off.

Most women are prostitutes. Some are just more willing to admit it than others.

It is neither moral nor immoral, just a means of earning a living...

Prostitutes are usually much more honest than women engaged in the dating scene. As a profession, I like them, although I do not avail myself of their services.

DOCTOR J'S FUN FACT:

For the cost of a steady girlfriend, you could have a different prostitute every weekend.

Why have only one fulfulling long-term relationship when you can have lots of casual ones?

If the prostitute has freedom, no pimps, safe environment, protection, etc... then there really isn't any moral problem.

However, if you visit a prostitute nowadays in most places, you are taking advantage of an entrapped and exploited woman.

I would say you are taking advantage of a woman that would rather fuck for a living than get a real job...

Pimps can try to entrap and exploit women, but it really takes two to play that game.
