Prostitution should be legal. This is just a straight, very reasonable fact. This is not from some weird self motive, but concrete logical thinking. Legalizing prostitution would bring change to the community in ways that we can only imagine.
The most prominent change that it would cause is the levels of STD’s to fall. This might sound counter intuitive, but statistics show otherwise. In Canada, where prostitution is legal, about .2% of the population is infected with HIV and in Germany, where it is also legal, it is .091%. In the United States the percentage of the population infected with HIV is 4.6%.
