Should prostitution be legalised ?

view-

firstly - prostitutes have been part of indian culture since millenia.

the apsaras of indras court were nothing but celestial prostitutes.

urvashi ,menaka , rambha danced and entertained the gods and went on to have numerous relationships.

yet this was accepted as part of indian culture and tradition.

our gods and various rishis went on to have relationships with various apsaras.

even in gupta and maurya times ,nagarvadhus were prostitutes who danced and entertained the people.

with the advent of modernity ,a certain prudishness entered the domain.

gandhian morality meant that sexual desires had to be kept under control ,if not outright suppressed.

police routinely harrass the prostitutes and pimps ,and make life difficult for them.

the ban on ladies bars is another example of the moral police taking a negative view of the oldest profession.

for what are bar girls , if not better quality prostitutes.

yet these women do the important job of satisfying the lust of men , and therefore keep them from prying on other ,respectable women.

because men have been able to satisfy their lust , many rapes have been prevented.

of course forced prostitution ,where women are kidnapped and forced into the profession is absolutely wrong.

making prostitution illegal means that they are not given access to knowledge about prevention of HIV , use of condoms etc.

illegal , unregulated prostitution is a surefire method of spreading HIV and venereal diseases.

for whoever is going to stop desire from being satisfied?

on the other hand countries like singapore have legalised ,regulated prostitution where periodic checking is done to prevent spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

legalising the oldest profession will allow those who practise it to get access to medical facilities and knowledge of condoms etc , and thus help in prevention of spread of HIV and other diseases.

it will also help them to be safe from harrasment by policemen .

expliotation by pimps will also stop.

hence prosttution should be legalised .

How would you differentiate between marriage and prostitution in that case?

Re: Should prosttution be legalised ?

I dont understand why anything is made illegal in India ??

Just by declaring anything illegal in India, doesnt mean it has stopped. It remains and flourishes, be it prostitution or gambling. By making it illegal we actually just add to the problem. And lose a lot of tax revenue. and give a chance to the cops to harrass people.

The fight against AIDS will be strengthened by making prostituion legal and giving out licences to sex workers. And also the police wont be able to get their "hafta".

Gambling is thriving so well, that it has created a parallel economy. The ban is meaningless. We would get at least 20000 crores as tax if we made it legal.

Infact in Netherlands, even Marijuana is legalised. One can buy it in coffee shops sold by the government !!!

Re: Should prosttution be legalised ?

1)legalisation of prostitiution will lead to dip in illegal human traficing.
prostitution will be another profession just like engineers,doctors,and lawyers..this will discourage women who do it for quick money rather than lack of options..
2)HIV,STD can be kept under check with prostitutes going for regular compulsory testing.Clients who do not wear condoms and beat the prostitutes would be charged.Pimps wont be able to harass the prostitute.
3)The children of the prostitutes will have a nrighter future and better living conditions which wouldnt force them into the same filth and apathy
4)White collared madarchods who show how decent and nice they are during daytime..and go and do randbaazi at night would learn a lesson from this.
lot of point..will come up with more laterz

Hmmm... you are right but it does not pose any argument for pros..

even in gupta and maurya times ,nagarvadhus were prostitutes who danced and entertained the people.

Wrong...Nagarvadhus were not prostitutes... we have discussed it before...

with the advent of modernity ,a certain prudishness entered the domain.

gandhian morality meant that sexual desires had to be kept under control ,if not outright suppressed.

Thats victorian morality dude not gandhian....

police routinely harrass the prostitutes and pimps ,and make life difficult for them.

for what are bar girls , if not better quality prostitutes.

yet these women do the important job of satisfying the lust of men , and therefore keep them from prying on other ,respectable women.

Au contraire.... Ye wo pyaas hai pyaare jo ek baar peene se nahi bujhti..

of course forced prostitution ,where women are kidnapped and forced into the profession is absolutely wrong.

making prostitution illegal means that they are not given access to knowledge about prevention of HIV , use of condoms etc.

illegal , unregulated prostitution is a surefire method of spreading HIV and venereal diseases.

hence prosttution should be legalised .
I am not against legalising the prostitution.... I agree with the points Dirty pai made..except that sex causes more harm than marijuana.... yes...legalise marijuana... its not like everyone is dying or going crazy in holland or benaras....

Prostitution is there, was there will be there, organize it, and try to put the end to exploitation it involves in.

You don't own your husband or wife, marriage is a contract....so is prostitution if legalized...one is supposed to have a longer term than other but these days many marriages are short lived.

I think if prostitution is legalized, marriage would be obsolete. After all who wants a painful divorce if marriage does not work out?

Re: Should prosttution be legalised ?

Here's my perspective on prostitution.

Traditionally, it seems to be the case that:

Men prefer legalized prostitution, women prefer marriage

Re: Should prosttution be legalised ?

Hello, hello, why are we assuming that only WOMEN will be the legalized prostitutes.

If we want to shake up the society by legalizing prostitution, we should make it legal for all the genders : Female, Male and Chakkas..

Any lawyer amongst us? can you frame a draft of the "Renting of Human Bodies for Sexual Pleasure Act, 2009" also known as the "EC Act".

Real life stories of High end prostitutes,...

Quote:
She carefully slid the straps of her little black dress and curled up her pink lips in a shy smile as she watched her image in the mirror.

He would perhaps not even notice the dress and how it stood against her ivory fair complexion when he will undress her in a hurry.

But it hardly mattered—her body paid the price for the expensive dress that he had brought from his trip to Paris last month.

He was her client and she choose to be his escort. Dabbing her favourite French perfume, she went out to meet him.

.... continued,..

Kinda true... how many of us have heard this reasoning... "Men marry for sex, women for love/marital security". If the former part is true then why would Men want to marry. Full freedom, no obligations, nobody bugging you day and night, no long shopping trips, nobody asking you to buy them jewelry or giving you advice not to scratch ur bum or balls... imagine what a revolution all this could bring.
