To Abolish Prostitution Or Legalize It And Impose Taxes For Public Services
Should prostitution be abolished or legalized? Well, in order to answer this question, one would be better off comparing it to the issue of marijuana. For the longest time possible, many governments criminalized marijuana and imposed stiff penalties to those found using or selling marijuana. But this never stopped people from using marijuana either for recreation or medical purposes. Fast forward and today, many developed countries have legalized it and not just that; they are earning millions of dollars in the form of taxes. Marijuana shops, manufacturers, advertisers; all these pay taxes that governments use for public services. So is prostitution any different?
Sex is part and parcel of human life;
Prostitution is a word that evokes mixed feelings in people; some view it as a purely ‘filthy’ profession that is done by morally low and indecent people. But this is not always the case; there are decent girls that offer their services to equally decent clients! In fact, a huge chunk of today’s escorts comprises of young, polished and educated girls who are either graduates or with nice jobs. Some just offer their services to make an extra coin, while others for the fun of it and chance to socialize with their clients. Mind you, not all prostitutes are desperate to go with any man that comes; most are classy and choosy, only indulging with a man she can intellectually and physically connect with. If governments legalized prostitution, they would be able to tax the profession just like they do in other industries. There would be less violence and abuse meted on the prostitutes as is often the case where prostitution is illegal. Money spent by police and authorities to patrol the streets and conduct swoops on red light districts would be used elsewhere.
Prostitution is an industry by itself and it has the potential to create employment not just for the girls and their clients. There are many coffee shops and rental houses that would earn from hosting couples on their dates or offer accommodation to couples looking to have good moments. At a time most governments in the EU are slashing public welfare funds and opting for strict austerity measures, it is ridiculous that they spend much money chasing down prostitutes and clients on their streets. The time and resources wasted arrested and charging those that indulge in it, jailing them; this is a waste of public funds! With legalization, it’d be easier streamlining the industry and making it just like any other. Legalizing prostitution means that law enforcers will be able to protect the sex workers rather than harass them; it’d also help combat human trafficking as well as the use of minors in the profession.
