    Re: Prostituition

    These are not the findings of the Amsterdam city council.

    It appears that the industry has drastically grown under the legalisation of prostitution. A lot of girls, mostly from Eastern Europe, are drawn to the city, mostly under false pretenses, and forced to work in the industry. So much so that they push honest-to-god prostitutes out of the market. As such, Amsterdam has decided to curb the liberal approach towards prostitution.

    As former mayor Cohen said;

    Funny how I said that I went with two prostitutes in my life and everybody's like "oh ok...what's next?" lol

    ^ lol, perhaps it's because eveyone has seen you hounding after the tff female posters so clearly you were desperate for a bit of loving... ;)

    Prostitution should be legalised, it happens anyway so you might as well have it properly regulated and the taxman get his cut.

    Re: Prostituition

    Ok 3 things...

    1.I'm not "hounding" every female in TFF seriously and I know it's a metaphor and not literally but again I think the sceptres should go to Alpha Alex :p
    And before anyone rushes to say a stupid joke NO I'M NOT HOUNDING FAKE FEMALES EITHER! (lol)
    2.I do find a point in Elladan's post,however I have to again disagree because in such a way we are encouraging prostitution.
    3.I think that the scum who exploit and force women to become prostitutes,meaning all those involved in women trafficking along with the brothels they own,should be hunted down and "flogged".Metaphorically.
    That does give me a flashback of the movie "Visitor from Hell" or what's it called,with Johnny Depp trying to find Jack the Ripper and those ugly pimps pushing girls into prostitution more and more demanding their "protection" fees.

    Re: Prostituition

    But AA doesn't hound - he skips the whole prowling and hounding stage and just gets straight to the puppydog stage of humping their leg ;)


    And as thus is either petted and booted away or just booted away ;)

    What did AA ever do? Should I be glad that I remain sexually ambiguous?

    Re: Prostituition

    Yes. Very.

    I can´t quite say that AA ever did something - but it's more about his persona. He never lets an opportunity go to make a complete fool out of himself when it comes to the females. It's pretty much as Overread stated :)

    I suppose that AA strongly opposes prostitution on the grounds of not wanting to pay what is - in his mind - rightfully his ;)

    Re: Prostituition

    Prostitution is legal and regulated here, we have a certain area in basically every major town (called "de Wallen"). There prostitutes sit behind their windows with their little red lights and try to seduce people that come by to come in.. ;) Silly really now you think of it.

    However, it's still not something people are very open about here. General opinion is, prostitutes are for men who can't get it elsewhere, and it's looked down upon a bit. I can't really understand why anyone would be willing to pay for it too, but if they want to, well it's their thing, not mine.

    Re: Prostituition

    Wouldn't prostituition be the fees charged by an institute of higher learning for allowing one to pursue a degree in prostitution?

    Re: Prostituition

    And yet do we not sell ourselves each and every time we apply for a job? To show our wears in our CV and attempt to sell our services to the best employer we can ?

    Re: Prostituition

    Well these women know what they're doing most of the time.. don't get me wrong, sometimes you do get the trafficking of women who don't want to be there.. but if someone wants to sell their body for sex, and feel comfortable with it, why not? Me, I'd rather work a "normal" job, but normal's relative.

    Re: Prostituition

    Trafficking of unwilling prostitutes is a problem only worsened by the illegalisation of prostitution as it results in a high-demand, low-product market with almost no legal intervention. Same with danger to willing prostitutes -- illegal prostitutes tend not to go to the police over rape, theft and assault because they don't want to be arrested. In areas where prostitution is legal, prostitutes can go to the police.

    Re: Prostituition

    It's not a female-exclusive job, you know. There are plenty of male prostitutes (although proportionally rather less).
