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. :)
I think that prostitution had some serious advantages in the past.... the far distant past. If a woman lost her husband in a hunting accident, or was killed in some brutal fight, she still had to find a way to care for herself and any children they may have had. There was not money then, so if she had no valuable/unique skills (maybe she couldn't weave baskets or cook or something like that?), she still needed a way to get the needed items. So, she offered her body to the man in exchange for the items. And thus, prostitution was born. It was probably not a glamorous affair back then, and could have brought the feelings of shame that we associate with it now. I mean, who wants to admit they cant care for themselves or children? So, thats my theory. It started as a way of survival, and has continued as such.
It should be legal.
yes once I hired one.
I think it should be legal. That's the only way it will become safe, and people wouldn't feel compelled to get into complex relationships when they don't really want to and don't deserve to. It will cut down divorce, hard feelings, unwanted children and population explosion.
As to the second question: No. It would totally damage my self-esteem. Not that it is wrong or anything. The idea that I would have to pay to have sex is kinda like having to pay for someone to listen to my conversation - it implies that my conversation is so uninteresting that no one would listen to it unless I paid them for it. :-)

Natarajan brought up very interesting arguments that haven't really been mentioned before.
Prostitution has been a part of society since (excuse the rude language) people have had cunts and cocks.
And, considering this fact, men had cocks years before they actually started working for real.
Which makes it pretty much the oldest "profession" in history.
And i hope it will be the one lasting the longest. After all, where would we go when we get old and ugly?
I agree, don`t have reason to prohibit the prostitution.
I think prostitution should be a normal part of a healthy society. It should definitely be legal.
I got a rub and tug once from a masseuse at a hotel in Mexico. I did not plan it but she offered and I accepted. I couldn't finish because I was wasted on pain killers. She then offered me oral or intercourse and I refused. I might have accepted if I was not so wasted.
I have never solicited a prostitute for the fear of desease. If it were legal, regulated, and affordable I definitely would.
I believe that prostitution, like drugs, is only bad because it's illegal.
