People who want to ban prostitution are just flogging a dead whore

It seems that women's groups are calling for an EU-wide ban on prostitution. Oh, good grief. As someone who once applied for a job as a researcher with the UK Network of Sex Work Projects, it's not surprising that I agree with their view on the proposal.

The UK Network of Sex Work Projects (UNSWP) believes the move would have damaging consequences for prostitutes.

"It creates a legal and policy climate, in which sex workers are more stigmatised and socially excluded, and in which it is harder to offer [them] accessible support services," the organisation told the BBC.

"It erodes sex worker safety and rights. The council of Europe should reject such laws and [instead] support initiatives and legal changes, which improve the social status and safety of sex workers and allow criminal justice authorities to focus their limited resources on violent and other crimes committed against sex workers."


The UKNSWP has just launched an excellent scheme which aims to reduce the risks of violence and other abuse for sex workers. Why not send them a donation, or buy a T-shirt? It will be a damned sight more useful than driving the whole industry back underground.

If those in favour of a ban hoped that this study, entitled Does Legalised Prostitution Increase Human Trafficking? would support them, concluding as it does that legalisation does lead to an increase, they will be disappointed.

The researchers warn that due to the clandestine nature of both trafficking and prostitution markets, their analysis had to rely on the best available existing data on reported human trafficking inflows. That legalised prostitution increases human trafficking inflows is likely, but cannot be proven with available evidence. The researchers also note that other reasons might speak against prohibiting prostitution despite its impact on human trafficking.

The article concludes: “The likely negative consequences of legalised prostitution on a country’s inflows of human trafficking might be seen to support those who argue in favour of banning prostitution, thereby reducing the flows of trafficking. However, such a line of argumentation overlooks potential benefits that the legalisation of prostitution might have on those employed in the industry. Working conditions could be substantially improved for prostitutes—at least those legally employed—if prostitution is legalised. Prohibiting prostitution also raises tricky “freedom of choice” issues concerning both the potential suppliers and clients of prostitution services.”
(My emphasis.)

Sorry but I think too many things are criminalized because of a few people's dislikes and attitudes. Prostitution and drugs (including alcohol) are obviously going to be around whether legal or not, so I think it would be best to just accept the fact and work with them as best we can. the US 'War on Drugs' has done nothing but lead to a huge increase in prison populations and leaves Mexico in a horrible state due to the drug gangs and money flowing through. Prostitution is legal in most of Nevada (except Clark County where Vegas is) and does not seem to cause any problem, except with religious morals.

I think that everything published was very logical. But, what about this?

I mean "People who want to ban prostitution are just flogging a dead whore" is a little vanilla.
You should look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create article headlines to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you've written.
Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

My brain was astonished when I've saw for the first time this sweet piece of game. Freshest tablet game from a one of the best game studios, showing such magnificent and horrible enemies that I'm still shocked and appaled. Seeing numberless zombie bugs dead, trigger constantly beating as I was firing my shadowgun and tossing explosives everywhere. Quiet and strong lead character reminded me of the old Doom PC game, though Combat Trigger: Modern Dead 3D has many additional gameplay features. Our armor gets to be customized which is the only thing that lets us proceed even deeper into this sci-fi horror. Modern warfare gets blended with dark and cynical sci-fi, where deep space exploration gave us only ineffable panic of having Earth infested by dead zombie invaders. Millions of them, actually. All hungry for our lives and our homes!
Become a frontline commando with your pistol blazing, or snipe the zombie beasts from huge areas. All using only your touch display. Only the best exploits of modern warfare mixed with an quick trigger finger will let you to achieve victory over the dead bugs. Cool graphics encourage you to heed your call of duty. Combat in modern style your fear when traversing future human cities and throwing barrages of bullets from your shadowgun, become the ultimate mobile frontline commando, killing numerous like an android.
Trigger finger licking good!
