Theme: Should prostitution be legalized?.
Prostitution is the oldest profession existing in the world. It got over the wars, the eras, the destructions, the changes It has sometimes been accepted, sometimes denied, sometimes at fashion, sometimes forbidden. But it has always been present and discussed. In the 21-st century people are supposed to be more free-minded and accept differences. But prostitution is still seen in the majority of countries as something "dirty". It's the public secret. It's the thing everyone does and no one talks about. Prostitutes have bad reputations. The word "prostitute" is used an insult. But isn"t it about time we open our eyes and see thing objectively? .
There has been much debate over the last few decades about prostitution law reform. Although there have always been reformist efforts and movements concerning prostitution, the prostitutes' rights movement, as we know it today, began in the late 60's and early 70's. The difference between the contemporary prostitutes' movement and previous efforts is that the current movement has been defined in a large part by prostitutes themselves. Prostitute activists have defined prostitutes' legal status in specific ways since the beginning of the prostitutes' rights movement. The current movement includes recognition of the rights of prostitutes to autonomy and self-regulation.
Most societies that allow prostitution do so by giving the state control over the lives and businesses of those who work as prostitutes. Legalization often includes special taxes for prostitutes, restricting prostitutes to working in brothels or in certain zones, licenses, registration of prostitutes and government records of individual prostitutes, and health checks, which often means punitive quarantine. In fact, in one commonly accepted definition of legalization, legal can simply mean that prostitution is not against the law.
Prostitution is defines as " the provision of sexual services for negotiated payment between consenting adults".
