I worry more about meth, robbery, burglary, assaults and hate crimes, not to mention murder, much more than I do consensual sex for hire.

The Hawaii legislature has already shown what a great job they can do with prostitution laws already. The only the state could make a "Cat House" turn a profit is to raise our taxes.

Are you kidding....Bill Clinton would be first in line! Government would run broke! "I did not engage in sexual intercourse with Monica."

Hey, I suggest that if Puns win a 6th straight title that we give Dookie a free night out to pick whatever hooker he wants! Take her back to campus and rock on coach!

Amazing...with all the other major problems facing the world today, we're spending time addressing THIS issue? Geez, if people wanna barter this for that or goods and services, let 'em. If they catch a disease, they gotta deal with it. Holy cow, help the spouses and bf/gf's of the cheaters. It's their own morals/standards that will make or NOT make them be an active participant in this prostitution type of activity.

Yeah...and add to that F-A-G-S who want to marry, Liberal Left Wing Statist who want to trash the constitution, the POOR quality of public school education, squandering of our tax money on the Rail to Nowhere, high cost of housing and every increasing taxes...my plate is full. Besides...if you need something along these lines...go to most K-Bars or a "Massage" palor for some action. At least they are cleaner that street walkers.

At least Guam is more civilized, in this issue. You don't see walkers, Johns, or drugs on the street.

Once again our legislators can't write a law that is uniformly enforceable, for one reason or another. It appears that we need to import some people to write the laws here. Our judges can't read (overturned unanimously by US Supreme Court) and our legislators can't write. Sad State!

Get the girls off the streets. What Waikiki really needs is some clean, well lighted "houses" for the gals to work. It's impossible to outlaw sex for pay, might as well have some classy joints for pleasure. Potted palms, nice rugs, whips and chains.
Whips and chains, sounds like what the State legislature needs before each session, maybe they'll pass something that actually makes logical sense?

Yeah, maybe Hawaii should get some legal brothel, like the "Chicken Ranch", keep it safe for the gals, instead of walking the streets, have a nice air conditioned room and a "full menu" of services for both the local and tourist sector.

They can even get one for the 6 foot 6, 300 lb "brutal" mahus that prowl the streets in Wahiawa and China town, get them off the streets too! You'll be surprised on who wants to be "dominated", caveman style...just ask some of the politicians who have a closet secret!

Men will go anywhere but their wives. I just cannot worry about prostitution. Go after the muderers, the apes, the mokes, the meth dealers, the robbers and the people who threaten lives and property.

Men who have HOT wives go home after work! Women with husbands who are good in bed are very happy (and hot). Prostitutes make a living off of disfunctional relationships and men who have no woman and want to get down to business.
