Advocates combating prostitution and human trafficking have called for a more enlightened, modern approach to addressing the issue: arresting customers instead of sex workers, to reduce sex trafficking by cutting off demand. Other advocates have called for the decriminalization of consensual sex work, saying laws against it force women out of sight, compromising their safety. Lee Cowan reports on the divide over an enterprise usually kept in the shadows, and talks with a sex worker who is open about her profession.

  1. iT'S STILL PROSTITUTION NO MATTER HOW MANY WAYS THEY DRESS IT UP IN NEVADA AS A BROTHEL, ETC. LEGALIZING IT IS NOT GOING TO STOP THIS BEHAVIOR. THERE ARE THOSE WHO WANT TO PROFIT FROM IT AND ARE DOING SO LEGALLY IN NEVADA.

  2. Prostitution is NOT the oldest job in history, electricien is ofcourse, the bible says: and there was light!
    So, there you have it, but to be honoust, make it legal, its easier to control then, and easier on the justice system too.
    Women cant walk the streets safe as it already is, without hookers, it will be worse!

  3. Oldest profession . Needs to be legal . So it can be monitored. Health – violence – money . Ask the legal businesses. Allusion ? Just don't understand why laws are made they just make them criminals. Stop it ?

  4. The illusion of consent. 🤔. That's interestingly applied to who.
    Older and wiser. Jus keep to yourself and realize all is Vanity. Fewer problems minding your own business and finding a hobby.

    STDs AIDs Tuberculosis hepatitis A etc high risk
    Of getting it all. Bahahahah
    One stop shop and drop. ☠️Die from it🤷🏾‍♂️🤣👍

    Hardest cookie to swallow is this. The body is a temple not made for fornication🤠. So whether it's free or bought it is a sin. Becoming one with a harlot. Class dismissed.

    Nobody wins in this profession. Risk of serial killers etc. When you wise up and realize all is Vanity you'll be better off.
