Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hookers, Madams, Ladies of the night, and the legality of said activities.
Last evening I got into an argument with my girl friend about the above ladies. (we live in the US)
My position was that selling sex should be legal. She was apposed.
My thinking is that. If you have a situation where hookers are licensed and work in legitimate brothels ala reno bunny ranch, Amsterdam, lots of places over seas. They will have mandatory health care, security, and a clean place to do the deed. They will also have the police as a legal recourse if they get raped or stolen from/ roughed up.
Where as with it being illegal they can't go to the cops, They can be preyed upon by pimps. And they have no mandatory health care so they could be spreading disease.
Her argument pretty much centered around the idea that hookers are gross and I was a pig for even bringing it up. Also those girls get what they deserve. I am curious if anyone here agrees with me or at least has a valid reason for it being illegal.
