Lightbulb Craigslist Ban -- Or Simply Legalize Prostitution?

With all the news hype about Craigslist Erotic Services, why not simply legalize prostitution and call it a day?

People will pay for sex regardless, whether illicitly or under the pretense of dating. But more important, we need to de-stigmatize sex.

Perversions, and many forms of senseless violence, are rooted in sexual repression. Imagine how much more pleasant the world would be if people were getting laid, without shame, on a regular basis.

You can pay for it and be done with the next day or pay for it all your life.

To amplify on that remark, the cynics always say: "One way or another, you always pay. ALWAYS.

You don't pay hookers for sex. You pay them to leave.

I didn't see why CR ought to stop allowing it; they obviously don't have a moral objection to it or they wouldn't have started it in the first place. They ought to just leave it up - it keeps people out of the streets.

It's just going to move into their other categories. There is no way they can police everything.
