Sounds like some member of the force wasn't happy with the service, got mad and decided to get revenge.....ridiculous. Who cares? So what? There are other things to worry about than this!

Really, why is prostitution illegal anymore? It's okay to have sex with a stranger, it's okay to give a stranger money, so why not one right after the other? Seriously, I don't get why authorities are so bothered by this; if anything it's just trying to force some outdated morality on the public! Better to do away with the laws against prostitution and concentrate on, I don't know, REAL criminals!

In Mass, two guys can have sex and that's OK but a Man and a Working Girl can't? W.T.F.???

One has nothing to do with the other. Uncle Sam can't ensure his share of that working girl's money that's why it won't ever be legal.

You're very right. Unless they find a way to contain it in brothels and tax the guys at the door. I'm wondering if someone sets up a camera and records it could you just call making a porn movie instead of prostitution. Porn stars are basically prostitutes on camera anyway.

make it legal, limit where it can be housed (just like strip clubs) requier girls to be licensed include mounthly medical testing and let it happen. Its been going on way to long for it to ever be stopped then it goes from costing us $ to stop it to making $ by taxing it. All vises should be treated like this drugs, alchohal, hookers, strippers and gambaling. We spend to much $ locking people up and chasing around stupid crimes. As a sociaty we need to spend our time and resources better

Why is porn different that prostitution? In porn doesn't someone get paid to have sex? Just wondering. Whatever floats your boat. I don't care one way or the other. I am curious about the legality of it.

I'm not sure what you are saying...he's gay because he's never been to a strip bar? That word means something and it seems you don't have the right definition.

But you made the right point. Makes no sense to say you can't tax it. Look at the Netherlands, works fine there.

Sure, today they don't file tax returns because their income is obtained illegally. Make it legal and it would be a job just like another job. People would still cheat on their taxes, but at the same rates as others.

This is simply about our prudish attitude towards sex. We have been told by religious leaders that want to control everything we do so we are so busy worrying about each other we don't see what they are doing that sex is bad. It is wrong to the point of being unhealthy. Denying sexual drive is unhealthy and leads to child rape among other things.

We need to get over our fear of all things related to sex. To this day you can bring up sex amongst a bunch of adults and they all giggle like little kids. We are just a bunch of uneducated prudes in this country. Who cares if people want to charge for it?
