The cops should know that men who pay for hookers are those who can't get sex from women. They are not wanted.
If the law prevent them from paying to get sex, they most likely become the rapist. They should legalize prostitution.
i'm sure that's what Hugh Grant's problem was. No one wanted him so he paid divine Brown who was a street hooker and charged him $60. eddie murphy too. Men pay for sex for many reasons.

Also being denied sex does not turn men into rapists. Rape has very little to do with sex. it is about control. maybe you should know a little something about the subject before commenting.

For treason or theft, the punishment would most probably be being placed in a sack of snakes and thrown into a nearby river or lake.

Muslim Women Have the Right to Go Outside of Her Home
Muslim women are not forbidden from going out in the community, working, or visiting relatives and female friends, if there is no objection from their guardian/husband and they are covered and behave and speak according to Islamic guidelines and, if necessary, escorted by their Mahram (a close male relative). However, a woman’s home should be the main base that she works from. Allah (SWT) instructed the wife’s of the Prophet (SAW):

"O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other women. If you keep your duty (to Allah), then be not soft in speech, lest he is whose heart is a disease (of hypocrisy or evil desire for adultery, etc.) should be moved with desire, but speak in an honorable manner. And stay in your houses, and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance, and offer prayers perfectly (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs (evil deeds and sins, etc.) from you, O members of the family [of the Prophet (SAW)], and to purify you with a thorough purification."

OK, explain Elliot Spitzer, then. Smart, successful, powerful, talked about as a potential presidential candidate. Patronized hookers. Does not seem to fit well with your hypothesis. Other customers of the same escort service were men who could afford a couple of thousand dollars for a roll in the hay. Guys with that much money usually have women attracted to them. Remember the "Mayflower Madam"? Her escort service catered to wealthy successful businessmen traveling on business to New York. Only sent her girls to 5 star hotels. Explain those clients and how they fit into your hypothesis. The list goes on. I think there's something else besides inability to get sex in other ways at play here.
Elliot Spitzer is not a good looking man. Only his position and his suits make him look better, not his real body. I don't think the 22 year-old high price call would go for him if it weren't for $5,000/hr.

For other buniess men? If they are good looking and kind, won't have problem to get laid. There are others who have money, but have no look, or some of them are psychotics, they have to pay for sex. For the rapists? They can't pay for sex, they no power over women. Therefore, they have to force themselves for sex.

If we legalize prostition, the wife, the daughter, the mother or father won't feel hurt much. Because these types of men would pay for sex instead of raping a child, a girl, a boy.

Women were forced to wear the burqa in public, because, according to a Taliban spokesman, "the face of a woman is a source of corruption" for men not related to them.[3] They were not allowed to work. They were not allowed to be educated after the age of eight, and until then were permitted only to study the Qur'an.

All i can say is your waaaay off base. By your logic if prostitution was legalized rapes would cease. Why then hasn't this occurred in places where it is legal like Las Vegas? Denying men the opportunity to seek prostitutes does not lead to them going around raping women.

Also looks have very little to do with why men seek prostitutes. I'm sure it accounts for some but not the majority. Many men dont feel comfortable acting out their fantasies with their partners due to shame or embarrasment for one. ALso single guys like the convenienience of sex for money between relationships rather then trying to hook up...the list goes on and on. Some men want to feel dominated and seek out those services etc etc....JFK jr, was rumored to have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on high class call girls and he was probably the best looking man on the planet when he was alive.

I've seen enough butt-ugly guys with attractive women to know that some women are drawn to things other than good looks. Money and power can go a long way to make up for being short, fat or just generally unattractive, at least with some women. Some women are also just plain smart enough to look beyond superficial appearances, because they know that looks fade over time, but basic personality doesn't change much.

The kind of men who commit rape and the kind of men who patronize prostitutes are two very different kinds of individuals. Rape is not sex, rape is violence. You should read A. Nicholas Groth's "Men Who Rape". It is the standard reference on the psychology of rapists. The overwhelming majority of rapists have anger issues towards women they express through violence. They choose rape because sexual violence is uniquely damaging to the victim. People who are attracted to children as sexual objects are people who are unable to relate to adult women. They do not have an attraction to adult women. They are as unlikely to be customers of female prostitutes as gay men are. Likewise, men attracted to little boys are generally attracted to the same sex, and highly unlikely to look to female prostitutes for gratification.

I dont think marketamerica is at all interested in the real reasons. She would rather believe only fugly guys who get no action would use such services. Her ignorance somehow makes her feel better. Either that or she's extremely shallow and can't possibly understand how a man who may not have good looks could be attractive to someone of the opposite sex.

Think of a word that starts with 'F'. Yes, that one. Now use the gerund form.(A verb used as an adjective, with the 'ing' ending is a gerund) Now combine it with 'ugly'. Fugly.

I truly think the only way to control the problems that go along with selling sex is to leagalize it. It is impossible for the police to make a dent in this crime that has been around from the beginning of time. It is a big waste of their time that could be used for real crime.

This is my first time seeing this word. No one call me this word in real life. I may write silly or call people names on here, because no one sees me who I am. In real life I am a different woman. Fun to be around.

I normally stay a way from people who like to use profanity or behave wired.

The Taliban closed the country's beauty salons.[23][24][25] Cosmetics such as nail varnish and make-up were prohibited.
