Personally, I think its pathetic and a waste of our tax dollar. Prostitution should be legal like in Europe...money exchanged between two consenting adults. In Europe, a woman has the right to put a pricetag on her body. But the existance of a business profitting from prostitution, such as an escort agency or a pimp is illegal.

Prostitution is the oldest profession in the history of man. I think America needs to redefine its legal system. But in the meantime, bring on the doughnuts and coffee for my boys in blue. Bravo!

Oh women put a price tag on their body now.... It can be the price of a couple of beers, a shopping trip, a house in Rye, who knows.... And of course there are those that give it away for free..

Why should anyone at anytime have to feel they should sell themselves?
There should never be that type of standard to begin with.
But, because we can and will defy our bodies, and our morals, we feel entitled.
Pimps beat prostitutes,
It promotes negativity in the environment,
It is not legal, it causes many other familial disputes.
How can a woman feel that she is competent while sustaining a man for his own selfish needs?
Make prostitution a question of trade, or a practice by women who are not quite sure of how else to earn a living?
People are scared to be with out money, because they are then perceived by the general population to be powerless.
The reality is, once that type of profession is aided and abetted it is more powerlessness.
You know the way they say, "theres no hope in dope",
well what makes you think this is any better?
It looks easy? I beg to differ, it is disgusting, humiliating, and haunting.
You never know when or where you could run into your john, you never know if there are going to be illegal raids, or if someone is going to try some thing stupid on you, or if they are carrying disease.
The statistics alone are scary, people are getting Aids is it worth the risk?
Think a bit more about yourself, since thats all you got. Don't look for an easy contact or hook up, many of these losers are married, and have poor self esteem to begin with, other wise they would not be willing to take a second look at what they know is wrong.
Don't believe everything you hear, and keep on truckin instead of you know what. Say it clear, say it loud and be proud.

Its not unusual especially with the help of the internet and craigslist to become involved with what you think might be a nice friend.Having tried to make a friend a professional from the area of putnam county and respected teacher,i found nothing but being hurt and basically a married man who abused me.Don't get involved with
strange men who most of the time are married and only looking to get away from their wives.Its not w
This guy had a dying wife and did not care.Its in the past but ladies when you chat or call someone or have them call you,check them out.Don't give them your body,you do not know what they have or what they have at home.Where they were,or who they were with.
Most of the time they are perverts who hide behind their rich status in westchester and putnam county.
be careful ,respect yourself,dont do anything and most of all dont meet these people alone.
I was not a lady of the night nor did i pretend to be this was a man who preyed on the internet.Its been nine years but the memory of it will haunt me.

My wife left me after 3 months of marriage to have fun with her friends.
I was devistated and ended up on anti-depressants.
She doesn't know it but I have access to her email and I check it out on occasion to see what she is up to and if she is OK.
She has placed numerous ads on Crgs List and has met with many men.
I am totally against her way of life but it's her life and I can't say anything about it.
This morning there were emails where she told guys how much she charged....$100.
I want to report her but at the same time I don't want to hurt her.
Not sure what to do.
She really messed me up but I'm doing OK now.
