Should Prostitution Be Legalised in India?

Editor's Desk: The so-called 'hollow life' of sex workers does not last beyond 10 years after which they end up as completely impoverished on city streets. The result of legalising prostitution is more security and rights for sex workers.

I agree with you, Wolf, but prostitution is not a capitalist invention. It was already mentioned in the Bible.
Prostitution will come to an end when the business finishes. Government regulation means taxes for the country's administration...

Prostitution will always be around so if legalizing it will help those people involved then so be it.

Well said Shirley! The crime and addiction to drugs etc that often accompanies prostitution would doubtless fall if the sex trade was regulated and taken out of the hands of criminal gangs! Wheter this would stop goverment use of sex workers to bribe and entrap any from spies to aquiring votes for pro whaling etc is another matter. Those that earn their living working in this the oldest profession need protection!

Whatever works for ones is there business living in India may bring more than a problem with Prostitution due to the Religious battle they have..

Legalising prostitution in India might provide some protection for the women from pimps snd crooked police.It is an indictment of their society indeed any society that neccessitates women to sell their bodies to low class men in order to gain a living.

I agree with you Shirley. I think there will always be prostitution. So like, whiskey, marijyana, it should be legalized it would probably cut the sex trade also which is so horrible for little girls.
