    Default A Morality Question

    In a society where Prostitution is leagal, which of these two would be immoral:

    Paying for sex with a prostitute.

    Hooking up with a woman, lying to her to get her to consent to sex and then walking out the door and never calling her or seeing her again.

    I'll throw in this question just for fun, do you think over all that the quality of relationships between men and women would improve if prostitution were legal?

    Neither are moral...If unmarried, I guess 1 is not as bad as 2. 2 is wrong under any circumstances.

    Well I haven't done #1 but I have done #2 many times...which is fine with me since up to that point women were treating me like #2.

    And I wasn't breaking any laws, so we're square.

    The Rabbi I listen to on the radio was asking this question today. I love his show because he's always asking "Outside-the-box" questions like this. He wasn't advocating postitution, he was using the question to frame commentary about the behavior of young men today.

    His point was that the guy who gets his needs taken care of by a prostitute was more honest than a guy who worms his way into the sack, then has his way with her and then leaves her hanging. That there is nothing dishonest about a single man paying for sex, where treating a nice woman like trash is.

    sounds like he's the one rationalizing something!

    Well, one of those things will get me slapped onto the OC Sheriff's database where as the other will get me slammed on someone's MySpace.

    I'll take my chances on MySpace.

    Although I never did it and don't think I ever will, I don't see what's so bad about having sex with a prostitute.
    Unless those women are forced into it of course. But if the girls do it on their own purpose whats immoral about it?

    Well, I've done both. #2 much more than #1 (thank you, college!)
    As far as morals go, I can see where paying for a prostitute is better than 'conning' your way into sex. But I look at it this way, if the woman is that naive she deserves to be lied to. j/k...kinda. All women should know that guys are just trying to get laid. Let's get real here.
    Besides, I'd rather save a few bucks any day!!!!
    On a side note, does a prostitute count as a notch? I never know how to count them.

    For the record, that was years ago and I'm much more respectable now. In my defense, I am a man.

    Both are wrong, and number 1 is just disgusting. You never know where she's been!

    If any of you have read Steinbeck's "Cannery Row", then you've read about our local brothel "Flora's". Prostitution was legal in Monterey,CA up until the late 1950s. There were other brothels, but Flora's was the nicest and had the best girls.

    Each brothel was licenced by the city just like every other business and the girls were inspected by the local doctor and the city manager (who happened to be my grandfather). Between the Sardine workers and the US Army, prostitution was a profitable industry here until 1946 when the Sardine's vanished and the canneries started to close.

    Flora was actually a quality Madame, her brother was a prime location for ladies of the evening and she had a screening process. Flora's was as much of a finishing school as it was a hoar house. She schooled her girls in etiquette, fashon and all the things that would make them desirable wives. She would then use her contacts to marry them off to wealthy families. There are many prominent northern California families who have one of Flora's skeletons in their closet. Many wealthy families jumped at the chance to hook up their son, who was not much of a catch outside of his bank account, with one of Flora's girls.

    The laws that made Prostitution legal were changed as Monterey looked to change it's image to a more family-friendlyplace to come and visit.

    If both parties are willing participants, I think prostitution should be legal. As with many laws in this country that are based on puritan thinking, they in turn create much worse problems than what they are suppose to be protecting us from. Paying someone for a job is much better than deceiving them into doing something they probably wouldn't do if they knew the real outcome. With prostitution, both know what they are getting into and the end result. If regulated, the girls are taken care of and well compensated for their services while men have a need taken care of in a safe environment.
