We are a society of hypocrites. We will not deal with the difference in male and female sexuality.
Most women will enjoy sex with a male who is attentive, reliable, a partner in many things, including bringing up children, taking part in keeping a home clean, warm and under good repair.
Women who stand on the street corner are not engaging in sexual activities because they crave the excitement of being intimate with a stranger who may be diseased, demented and cruel and they may lose their life in this kind of activity.
They need the money. I could never understand, if we are to eradicate prostitution, why are we, as a society, not charging the men, who demand the service?
After politicians, prostitution is one of the oldest professions. We protect politicians with all sorts of laws, but not the prostitutes. Bring in a non-judgmental law, which will protect physically the woman, who must, or choses, to make her living this way. As long as men demand the service, there will be prostitution. The main importance of any new law on this topic should be to protect the women, and as thriving business owners, make them pay taxes.
