What would be the results for culture if we could effectively halt the practice of prostitution?
Should we do that even if we're able to?
Could prostitution ever by organized so that it did not cause the exploitation of women?
There would be an increase in interpersonal problems; more rape, misuse, poverty, violence, trafficking, and underground prostitution if the practice of prostitution was effectively discontinued. If we halted the practice of prostitution, we might as well halt the practice of pornography also. I am against legalizing prostitution but do not think it should be banned, because no real matter what, prostitution will always be around. I believe prostitution is incorrect, by legalizing it, some will think allowing sex outside of a marriage is ok, leading to more divorces, disease, and promote the acceptance of women's degradation (Henslin 2008, p. 79). Women aren't objects, and really should not be on the market. I love this affirmation from ex - Swedish Deputy Best Minister, Margareta Winberg (2002), Prostitution and trafficking triggers, gender inequality, love-making and racial discrimination, and monetary deprivation, as well as the guideline of law, criminal offense control, police and corruption (Winberg 2002, Sweden as Chair section para. 5 )
In my estimation, streetwalkers should be incorporated into a red zone, or red light district, by doing this would help to keep the drug addicts, and disease inflicted people divide from others. They should have to pay fees, and also have a rule where there are no intimacy services provided after a certain A. M. hour, like individual state regulations on bar closing hours. If prostitutes or clients are located outside of that area, or after hours, they should be arrested. All the prostitutes would work as an escort, call woman or in a brothel, be controlled, and have confirmation that all employees have been tested for diseases and everything employees will be taxed like any other employee. Legalizing prostitution will still exploit women.
Searching for prostitution prevents law enforcement from responding to other subjects and dangerous felons, and almost all of enough time only the prostitutes are caught, not the pimps, clients, or the strip club owners/managers, etc By legalizing prostitution, regulations could be enforced against people who misuse, or are violent against sex workers. Child making love, sex trade, compelled labor, and kidnapping would be better to target.
To make an effort to lower or halt the practice of prostitution, we have to alert women against lawyers and stop them, in order to face the demand for prostitution. Men, are usually the buyers of commercial making love acts, and the biggest consumers, of trafficked and prostituted women and children. Men do not respect prostitutes, but utilize them for entertainment, sexual gratification, serves of violence, and utilize them to meet their mental needs, not their physical needs. In order to reduce patients of prostitution, and face the exploitation of women, all the the different parts of the demand need to be punished; the men who purchase the sex serves, the exploiters, traffickers, pimps, and the culture that is situated about the nature of prostitution (Hughes 2004, pp. 3, 4, 7). Intimacy will sell as long as there are men.

If we're able to effectively halt the practice of prostitution the consequences in contemporary society would be many. The go up in crime would be, in my opinion, almost immediate. Erotic offences such as rape and sodomy would be but the hint of the iceberg; local violence would surge, more assault could ensue because sexually frustrated people are not automatically the nicest. Also more poverty would be one end result, because prostitution is a mean of income for many; therefore robbery, medication dealing, burglary and other illegal method of income would go up as well.
Should we do away with prostitution if we could? As I thought of my answer because of this question, an interesting memory returned to me: after i was an adolescent my parents wouldn't normally let me wear loose fitting "baggy" clothes because they sensed a person should dress appropriately and that the baggy style appeared "street" or like you acquired no home. In my own mind I found my parents to be too stereotypical, they needed to Americanize; after all, we had kept our fitted-jeans country in the past, who would evaluate me by my clothes? The more they refused me the right to dress like that, the more I needed to; I would sneak my father's t-shirts to school, I would acquire my friends X-L sweating trousers and change in the toilet at my university. I felt I was "cool", I participate in the rest of my peers; of course I got captured various times, but I didn't worry, I'd continue steadily to do it. One day my parents sat me down and said, "OK, we obtain it, you want to dress like the others to be cool, you're permitted to achieve this, baggy outfits are put into the swear jar" I experienced like I received, I dressed baggy nearly every day for three weeks and paid a dollar to the swear jar, and then the magic used off. I had been no longer heading against anyone; there is no thrill to getting caught, little or nothing; if anything I got losing profits for my stubbornness. I went back to dressing correctly. My parents were very smart when they performed this, although they did not like it, they approved it and "taxed" it (that i later discovered was the money we used for family outings), everyone received their way.
Where am I addressing? Well, Personally i think that people should play it smart. If we could actually effectively stop prostitution, the negative final results may outweigh the positive ones. Instead, I feel that we ought to legalize prostitution, set guidelines for the practice - such as assessment weekly, no pimps, males permitted to "work" in this profession (EEO) - and best of all: tax it; right or incorrect it could promote the economy. This may have positive final results for the reason that, there would be less scandals, less erotic crimes, possibly less STDs going around and a monetary gain to the government.
Organizing prostitution so that it is not exploitation of women, I believe can be done. Exploitation through prostitution is a subject of perspective; one can argue that the girl is exploiting the men. The men exploit the ladies by fulfilling his own needs and the women are exploiting the men because they know he has them and it is willing to pay. With the exception of prostitutes who are "slaved" by their pimps, I don't think anyone is exploiting the women. Perhaps if there have been rights or laws and regulations guarding prostitution as a profession, such as no pimps, medical rights and security from harassment, the point of view of exploitation could be done away with.

The Larry Mahoney Case
Read "Issues in Public Problems" on page 121 of your text. Larry Mahoney dished up a decade in the Kentucky state jail at La Grange. In at least four paragraphs, prepare your discussion throughout the case questions: Do you consider this is just? Instead of going to jail, do you think that he must have been fined and had his driver's license revoked? Or should he have been given the fatality phrase, as some prosecutors demanded? What do you consider could have been appropriate? Respond to at least two of your classmates' postings.
I believe that the Larry Mahoney circumstance was cured very lightly. I do not feel that his abuse was just. Yet I am obligated to say this was well taken care of. The jury costed him with manslaughter and other "lesser" offenses and suggested 16 years of imprisonment, and under Kentucky law the judge could not add to the sentence. It is beyond me why the actual fact that he drove drunk and killed any amount of men and women didn't get him his license revoked entirely!
Was the sentence just? Yes to the extent. It really is bizarre to me how some prosecutors chuck the death charges demand around like it's every other paper request in an office. It's supposed to be justice right? How could it be fair that a man who killed 27 people, reaches expire and the family of the dead get to live with the pain, sorrow and harmed in their hearts, physiques and heart and soul? No death charges, let him live to handle the results; and besides, how would justice for unintentionally getting rid of people be served by purposely killing someone else? That's like swatting your son or daughter's palm and yelling "hitting people is wrong, don't do it!" I am FOR the death penalty when it comes to serial anything, killer, rapist, et al. They create an extreme hazard to society, we cannot teach them a lessons, we cannot "re-wire" their brains, they are not remorseful. . .
Fining him and revoking his permit must have been done no matter him heading to prison or not, irrespective of him eliminating people or not; it will have been done regardless of any results when he was found drunk when driving. Spending 16 years in jail seems to me to be a lttle bit reasonable, because that is exactly what the jury provided; I had not been there, I am not aware of how the law worked in the past and I believe that if 12 complete strangers all come to the same contract of justice, then justice was served for them. I really do not, however, agree with the idea that his license was not revoked, or that he was qualified to receive parole; good do or not, he should have served the full sentence.
The sentence I'd consider reasonable, would be:
54 years imprisonment
No eligibility for parole
Long term revocation of most driving privileges
We are able to sit here and dispute all day on this subject, nevertheless, you that our judicial system is much better now than it was in the past. Justice was dished up for that time, not ours.
