[Carlin] Selling is legal, fucking is legal, so why isn't selling fucking legal?[/]
Pornograqphy is the expression of people's fantasies.
Prostitution is not and actually does harm some people.
Of course it is, don't be ridiculous.
Any sex has the potential to cause a great deal of harm. Prostitution is not so different.
Not inherently. Prostitution does harm BECAUSE it is illegal. Prostitutes cannot enforce contracts legally and thus have to rely on abusive exploitative pimps. They are often raped and cant go to the cops, and are not in a position to demand condom use so they get diseases.
At any rate, with porn, there is a loophole. They are not being paid to have sex, but rather, to appear on screen.
I did a thread on this before.
I tried to come up with a loophole where you could sleep with a hooker, have it taped, have the tape destroyed, and juggle the money around so you get paid for the porno with half of your own money that you forked over.
The morality police were having none of it.
Hmmm, an enterprising entrepreneur could set up a makeshift "studio" and have never ending auditions.
Paid entry, of course.
Why? Because pornography didn't come into such popularity until after the Feminist Temperance organizations died down.
Don't believe me? Look it up!
What's even wierder is militant feminists hate porn but love whoring.
Only porn a man makes money on.
They're hunky dory with oh, say, incest trash by V.C. Andrews.
The sage words of Fez and Hyde, on prostitution vs. dating.
A good number actually like porn as instruments of economic power
Harmful to who? The whore, the John, or the prude next door?
First, there is a higher risk of STDS. Secondly, sometimes a prostitute is raped. There are other crimes associated as well, such as assault in some cases.
What a trite idea.
Usually something is made illegal because it causes harm.
You're actually suggesting the opposite.
Storm and Herp have this sort of Moonlighting thing going on.
If the whore is careful and always uses protection, the chance of STDs isn't so great.
It's why God invented condoms.
Too bad she can't go to the cops about it. Well, she could if it were legal.
Herps not bad people but I'm strictly butter side up, if you know what I mean, Kryters.
Why is it always Moonlighting?
Cuz I don't keep up with modern romantic comedies, and I still have a thing for Cybil Shepherd, shut up!!
Actually, over here, prostitution of itself isn't illegal. But living off immoral earnings is.
So does that mean a woman can have sex with people for money, as long as she doesn't spend it?
Gotta be a way to launder it.
Prostitutes with offshore accounts?
Tax evasion with donations?
Trading money with someone offshore, dollar for dollar?
Buying things only in international waters?
Prostitution being illegal in the US is a relatively new thing, brought about when the military realized it was the primary source for some debilitating diseases.
When was this? The Civil War? Cuz yeah, whole regiments were taken down by nasty ass STDs.
No excuse in the age of penicillin and rubbers though.
Fucking selling IS legal!
