What do you think about prostitution? Should it be legal? Have you ever tried it and, if yes, how?
EDIT: For anyone reading this, I am interested in whether you hired a prostitute, or offered your services in exchange of money. I am not looking for tips on how to hire a prostitute. :)
Yes, I was attempting to point out the absurdity of the term 'slut' in my comments there.
I wasn't saying that the word 'slut' is comparable in derogatory terms to that of 'playa'.
I did not make myself clear in my usage of 'slut'.
I was actually, in my own way, defending women on the absurdity of the word 'slut'. As it's really just a term to express sexual promiscuity - comparable to the promiscuity of the male.
I can see the reason for the mis interpretations. I rightfully admit this point. But for some to say I am being 'derogatory' - I am trying to point out I am arguing the opposite - That the term 'slut' is absurd as the term 'playa' is also absurd.
I am just trying to have a meaningful conversation here! (Sorry if anyone is literally taking offense - I thought I made my joke playfully enough to not be taken this way.)
Oh, quick note: As to jeans post - There are plenty of words that as demeaning to men as the word 'slut' is. If you want to attack our sexual character - I already pointed out a few ways to do so. It just seems those are all taken as less offensive simply because we are men.
I'm sorry Adriana, I do not have a term for men. Not because I think that men who act in the same manner women like the ones I described do are better, or worthy of admiration or respect. Regardless of gender, those people sicken me.
I think religion had a big role in degrading the world's view on women and the effects are still very visible. I remember that the first slut or prostitute I ever heard about was Mary Magdalene, you know, the one from the Bible. That says a lot. I know, I've grown, and now I know that it's all bullshit, but back then it had a great effect on me, and I think it still has on some young children, regardless of gender, that are still taught (from) the Bible.
Anyway, to get back at terms. I am really not that offended by any terms anymore, as I've learned to know myself and pretty much all that I am capable of. I only hate the use of any terms as a generalization, not only towards women, but towards any group. Just so it will be no confusion, I wasn't trying to do that at all. I'm sorry if it came out like that. I have known women like that really well, as one of them along with her behaviour had a great influence in how my life turn out. That's how I ended up despising that sort of behaviour, regardless of gender. I don't think we should try too hard to find derogatory terms for men as well, but to try and judge any person separately, not as a group, as we can't really find two people alike on this planet.
I hope you get to read this reply; it seems like it's 3 pages away from yours.
What's the difference between a slut and a bitch?
A slut is a girl the will fuck anybody...
A bitch is a girl that will fuck anybody...BUT ME!!! lol
There are times I wish I was the last man on earth, just to see if all those girls were serious...
or maybe you're an undercover officer on a sting operation. lol
I never have, but I think it would be fine if it were legal. Liker others have already said, government regulation could actually make it safe. Not that it would be easy to track down every prostitute...
Yes Should b legal
I have tried Prostitution because girlfriends etc sort of things are not easily available in muslim country,class in which I lives.
I have not read the comments to this but it should be legal. Just like all drugs should be legal. I have never tried it.
I can see this being a interesting post to follow up on. (I am short on time today!)
I agree prostitution should be legal, I think it would be monitored better, on age(+18) and STD's. Over here it is still illegal, but if it's not streetprostitution, they ignore it. They do check for ID.
Most people are very hypocrite about it. I don't see how women who marry a man for his money are any better.
My best friend is one. She's the most decent person I know. I love her and hate people who judge her.
what I don't agree with is legalising all drugs. Canabis, ok, but all the other stuff, no. and even weed, I smoke and I know it does effect my personality...
