What Recession.......... Prostitution booms in US..........

Prostitution booms in US

Despite fears of a recession in many industries, a report says that US prostitution is booming.

Portfolio magazine says the average "escort experience" is valued at about �650, and the total US "escort economy" is more than �50 million.

About 700,000 men in the United States pay prostitutes for sex each year, according to a survey in the magazine.

What this country needs is a good $30 whore.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

^^^ I dunno. I'm of 2 minds concerning prostitution. On the one hand (so to speak) you have the issue of freedom -- I believe each of us owns our own body and we individually are responsible only for ourselves (and due to biology, for our young and by contract, to a spouse). From that premise alone, prostitution is of no concern to gov.

OTOH, a brief Internet search will inform us of women who are kidnapped or tricked or sold as children into the sex trade. That is at least as hideous as chattel slavery, which we modern folks abhor. Would legalizing the sex trade remove the profit motive from the illicit sex trade? I doubt it. Look at Holland, for example. There are news stories about Eastern European women kidnapped or tricked into prostitution in Holland even though prostitution is legal.

And lets not kid ourselves --- clients are enormously, overwhelmingly male. So it is men who create the demand that results in the degradation of women who are forced into prostitution, most often as underaged teens.

I don't think it is an easy argument. Or at least it shouldn't be.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thats what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama
