Prostitution is believed by many to be the world’s oldest profession with its roots taking back to the ancient times. It is commonly believed that prostitutes were only women, but the truth is that prostitutes are widespread of the male gender. Prostitutes let their costumers use their body for its lustful, bizarre, painful or disgusting, and occasionally fatal acts.
The business of prostitution is the use of real human beings to support the fantasies of others. Anyone who worked in prostitution who tells his costumers too much about who they really are interferes with the fantasy. They risk losing a customer, and may get a beating as well. In real relationships with real people, you are stuck with the limitations of who you are, who your partner is, and what you can do together without hurting each other.
Maybe the main reason why some people engage this job is poverty, the undying and unresolved problem throughout our history. When the family is poor, or part of a devalued minority group, and opportunities for education and good jobs are limited, some members of those families may be willing to take risks. If the young people are being terrorized, beaten, or sexually abused by the very people who should be protecting them, many are going to take their chances on the street. For some, nude dancing or even prostitution may look better than no job at all. They may have to do prostitution from age 12 or 14, until they turn 18, and can get a "better job" such a nude dancing.
On the other hand although it may not be prevented at least it will be monitored by means of legalizing it. In many other countries as the Netherlands, prostitution is legal, and it seems it is very well taken care of. Also in some cities like Las Vegas it is legal. The decriminalization and legalization of prostitution with reasonable restrictions would overall beneficial to society. If the government will impose taxes to the operators of these sex businesses and establishments it will be an additional fund to the government. Legalizing it also may protect the prostitutes themselves and the costumers against sexually transmitted disease.
People who have had luckier lives, as well as those who profit from the sex industry in some way, frequently refer to prostitution and pornography as "victim-less crimes". They point to a tiny fraction of sex workers who actually might be involved by choice. They selectively read history to find some tiny minority, somewhere, at some time, who gained something in the sex business.
The very selectiveness of their attention indicates that, on some level, they know that for almost everyone, involvement in the sex industry is a terrible misfortune.
"As many old cop will say, "Anyone who thinks prostitution is a victimless crime, hasn’t seen it up close."
