    At least in most parts of north america. I'm serious about this becaue it doesn't make sense to me. The only difference between prositituion and porn is someone is video taping the "event".

    Porn is basicly fiction, while prostitution is real.
    Thats the main diffrence.

    porn actors are also being paid, you know, they are also paid to do porn

    I dont see why they aren't allowed because now people cant vent there sexual frustations and will go rape or something..

    Uhhh.... rape isn't about venting sexual frustrations.

    And I guess one difference is that the porn industry has standards it sets for its actors. Like they have to be tested and be a certain age and stuff, but prostition is anything goes and there is no way of regulating it.

    Society is quite imoral as it is now. i dont think legalising prostetution in the us will make a big diffrence to that.

    I personally have no problem with prostitution exept that it isnt regulated in any way wich is a bad thing since just about anything goes.So its not a clean profession, its often involved in crime and thats also a very bad thing .Very few children would have the guts to hire someone to have sex with them, and most teenagers have sex with eachother instead anyway.

    Where i live,its allowed.

    I dont know what stds is, so i cant comment that.

    Porn is just acting as in every other movie. They even have scripts.
    Regardless if they enjoy it or not, its all fake.
    Its just to get our imagination going.

    Pornstar is an actor. they are paid to act, they arent paid to have sex.

    Stds:There is a very safe way to avoid such diseases, most people know.
    As long as youre smart enough to use that, than stds wont be a problem?

    Oh, good point ^
    Stds are sexual transmitted dieases, HIV, Herpes, aids, like that. Topic starter! you have a very good question. I think it's the same thing, because they could be recording a prostitution and sending the files over the internet, secretly. So to them, it doesn't matter the laws, but sick people have a sick way of doing things and bending the law. Or, in another view, business likes to get in the way of things for money. And wouldn't want any businesses like the guys paying the chicks directly before going through the whole system of who buys the tapes where the money goes, salary, things like that.

    Porn stars are payed to do there job... they're like movie actors, I think there are award ceremonies like the Oscars but for porn.

    As for prostitution... is it illegal everywhere? I think its legal in some places.

    I guess cuz we were founded in a very religious protestant society that burned whitches, and changing some laws would be contreversial, even now. The Communist scare was only so long ago, and nobody wants to stand up to the soccer moms.
    Personally I think Prostitution should be legallized and regulated. Right now it persists for those that are desperate to get money, and to get some, and for both its risky. You can spread venerial diseases due to infrequent checkups and even if they use condoms Ive heard some guys offer extra if they dont use one, and of course a desperate hoe isnt gonna say no. Then its risky for them that both their pimp and a client will beat them and physically abuse them.
    Basically more job security is needed and more buyer security.

    ok but lets take this one step further, if prostitution does become legalized, then ofcoarse diseases will grow, then comes the problem of peopel becomeing pregnant... and abortion...so to an extent prostitution is ok.... but then it will get out of hand very quickly, i mean, even with security and laws, you just cant stop some things from happening. back to std's, wat if someone does have one but then they dont tell anyone, they keep haveing sex and it spreads.. so i'm still gonna stick with prostitution should still be ilegal..

    I bet tax is in there somewhere.

    Porn is taxed, while Prostitution isn't.

    But I don't really know, there are so many reasons for the legalisation of Prostitution that I don't see the logic in why it's kept illegal. Especially when the government could stop the spread of disease, beatings and tax them all at the same time. Everyone would be better off.

    I agree.
    I suspect that its kept illegal beacuse america is a deeply religious country, and prostitution is just wrong for them by their moral standards.
    No politician has dared to make it legal yet.

    I guess that they don't pay tax...that's why it's illegal. Porn...dunno why it's not illegal...but I guess it's hard to patrol.

    ok I don't have a ton of time so I will try and make this short.

    first the topic:
    prostitute = someone payed to have a sexual encounter with a random person

    porn = an artistic representation of sexual encounters through payed actors to record on a medium for sale to the public.


    about its legalization I beleive there is already another thread on this one. basically the arguement is that people will want to have sex and there is always going to be people willing to give it for money.if you regulate it then there is the possiblilty that you could reduce the spread of STD's, the drug trade often associated with protitution, better protections for prostitutes, and also hopefully reduce the human slave trade.

    the counter arguement is your legalizing pay sex with a random stranger which many would consider morally wrong. there might be an increase in prostitution and it is known that protitution damages most people both the giver and the taker if used enough they tend to have some sort of mental trauma and this could lead to drugs, violence or other non safe habits.

    like I said just a short recap :)

    These are theories, but most countries were prostitution did become legalized this didnt happen at all.
    Americas large so its hard to preict, but Vegas one of the largest most sinful cities in America has legal prostitution, but doesnt have one of the largest STD rates in the US. People can always make theories to conclude things. Like if marijuana became legalized everyone would become a pot head, instead of it might severely counter true drug trafficing and support, with people feeling free to occasionally smoke something less addictive and detrimental than both ciggarettes and alcohol in the comfort of their own homes. Or if you outlaw handguns al the criminals are going to start robbing people because theyre no longer afraid. Theyre not afraid of you in the first place, and it would definately cut back on school violence.

    Though personally I think someones idea to charge more for bullets, like $100 per bullet at least is the best. Then people will only shoot someone if they really want to kill them. You can have plenty of guns. But are you really going to put $1000 into making sure this 1 guys dead? You better be sure about it. Are you really going to waste $10,000 killing your whole highschool? even if you found the bullets and didnt pay for them you'd probably sell them instead. I'd feel honored if someone thought Im worth shooting with a hundred dollar bullet.

    yes but sorta they have super strict restrictions and they are not allowed to advertise in most medias so they tip the cab driver to take them to X location because they also cannot set up show within the city limits of major towns so thats how you end up with the bunny ranch. but since there is such a tough restriction on it it kind of caused a two fold prositute industry one legal and out of the way and one illegal and in the city. I was there last summer and the number of "escort" services is through the roof and I think we can all figure out what most of those escort services are.

    Thank you everyone for your replies.

    Still to me, the differences between porn and prostitution are barely there.

    Someone brought up pron as an artisitic expression. Maybe some people do it for art but I think on the most part, it's done for money.

    Can't a prostitue say he/she is having a private view of his/her artwork when the vice squad comes raiding in? Can't he/she claim it's interactive art? A prostitue or jiggilo may have a pimp but pornstars have agents that basically do the same thing. Instead of doing tricks porn starts have tappings.

    When it comes down to it, both are being paid to perform a sexual act. The only difference is if it's being video tapped and distributed it is consider porn and therefore legal. Does this mean you can hire a hooker and it will be legal as long as you have a video camera to record it?

    Prostitution = Dangers w/ Serial Killers, Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Getting Robbed by the Pimp, Police Busin Yo ASS

    Porn = Harmless People Masterbating to people on their screen

    Any Questions?

    In the Neatherlands they've set up a sytems where it's really safe. There is a designated red light district and security measure that protect the girls working there.

    Porn also has the same dangers facing them. The only difference is they are more organized and funded because they are deem legal.

    Given an equal playing ground they at it's core they are basically the same thing, and the difference that sets them apart has nothing to do with moral ground.

    Here it's legal. :p
    Hrm, I think it's still a difference between fucking in a film studio and spreading AIDS on the streets. Nobody will get pregnant or catch a desease from watching porn, too. You're not forced to look at the dirty videos but everyone sees whores if they are looking for men in the street. I think the pornbranch isn't that trustworthy either, but women are at much more risk if they prostetute themselves. That might be some arguments but I think legalizing it isn't that bad because you can control it this way. If a man happen to be horny as hell it's better if he goes to some clean brothel were the sex is consensual. Maybe he'd force some women to give him what he want if the possibility don't exist. On the other side legal prostitution offers the women more safety. They recieve less violence, can be sure that they recieve their money and so on.

    Given a chance prostitution can be as safe (a relative term) as porn if the industry was legal and enough money was put into it.

    So at the core, is there a real difference between prostitution and porn?
