It is my constitutional right to whore myself out to whoever wants me...

Prostitution is generally not looked upon as a dignified profession. In fact, for all the love it makes, it is probably one of the most demonized professions in our nation. It's just ahead of the repo man and just behind Commander and Chief, but what is so bad about it? America is a nation founded in capitalism: selling your goods and services to the highest bidder. Whether it be selling my skills as a sensual masseuse or selling my skills as a sex connaisseur, it is constitutional right to be allowed whore myself out to any woman that wants me... except the fat ones.

One may ask: But, where in the constitution does it say, "Sean can whore himself out to any woman that wants him, except for fatties."? It doesn't. However, The Declaration of Independance did say that I have the right to pursuit of happiness as long as my happiness doesn't interfere with other people's pursuit of happiness. By selling myself to willing customers I am not only pursuing my happiness, I am also helping others be happy as well. Also included in the constitution, under the necessary and proper clause, is the right to privacy. What a paying customer and I do together is not the governments business. So, they can just leave us the fuck alone.

What people dislike about prostitution is that it is morally wrong. It's not right to change "making love" into "making money" because it detaches the emotional intimacy from rocking the casba. Well here's a neat fact: the government has no place in deciding matters of morality. Morality is a decision that is supposed to be made by the individual, not something that is forced upon the masses by the government. You can't say that the morality of the majority should be forced upon the masses either. Each individual has the right too and must develop his own moral values or else they will become mindless zombies controlled by society or the government. The government has no right to tell it's citizens that prostitution is morally wrong. The citizens must decide for themselves if something is morally wrong to them and then they must decide whether or not they will partake in it anyway.

Legalizing prostitution will also be good for America. According to The Highest Paying Customers: Americas Cities and The Cost of Prostitution Control by Julie Pearl, the average cost of the trial and arrest of a person convicted of prostitution is $2000. The average city spends $7.5 million on prostitution control and New York City spends $23 million. Not only will a lot of money be saved, but also states would be able to take a portion of the revenue that comes from the prostitution business by charging an excise tax on the services of a prostitute. We can use this money in a veriety of different ways including education, infrastrucure, and medical research.

By legalizing prostitution and putting it partially under the control of the government, other major problems people have with prostitution would be solved. One problem people have with prostitution is that it can infect decent neighborhoods with immorality, but if government-controlled brothel was set up discreetly in a non-residential area this problem would be solved. Violence and mistreatment against street prostitutes would be lessened too because the clients would be able to be identified if needed. If prostitutes had to be liscenced and checked for STDs along with clients being checked then the chance of spreading an STD would be zero.

Overall, it just makes more sense to legalize prostitution. Let an individual decide for himself if it is wrong or right. Many people feel that prostitution is their only way to make a decent living and it makes them feel good about themselves. Why should we not allow them to live happily? Why shouldn't we make their profession safer and more profitable for everybody? Why should we infringe upon my inalienable right to whore myself to any woman that wants me? Except the fat ones.

I do believe that prostitustion is legal in a couple states, or at least some areas in this country. I would think that even with the STD screenings, it would still be possible to spread them, like if it was a new or very uncommon one. Anyway, good stuff otherwise man.
