    Prostitutes themselves are usually in that position out of misery in the broad sense (financial, intellectual, psychological) so I think they should get helped to get out of the industry - not ashamed.
    Most men who see sex workers do not "use" them as a thing. They are for the most part respectful and the sex is for the most part very "vanilla". We are talking normal, every day men here. Most sex workers in Australia have some university training. Many may be single mothers or in a hard place financially due to a partner leaving them or debt. Many are students. MANY are nurses. There's more than a few lesbians in the industry. Quite a few have some minor mental health issues, nothing major and some are drug users, I'm guessing around 20 percent of those in the legal, licensed industry. And you know what? Many do not want to leave the industry. But I agree- for those that do- more services (there are some) to assist them would be beneficial.

    If on the other hand someone becomes a prostitute to pay off their uni fees then l wouldnt think very highly of them. They have other options like HECS.

    HECS doesn't cover everything needed for Uni and why is it better to go into debt rather than to work and pay it upfront?

    No, sex between consenting adults is nothing to be ashamed of.

    I personally feel that it is. I won't go into the reasons as to why I feel that way, as I don't wish to offend anyone or to have what I say picked apart and criticized as such.

    "shame
    Noun

    A painful feeling of humiliation or distress caused by the consciousness of wrong or foolish behavior."


    ...I guess it would be up to the individual to answer that question.

    I've never been a prostitute so can't say.

    No I don't find it shameful at all (for agencies though) where they are in a safe environment, condoms etc, sex checks etc.... Maybe I'm making this up LOL I am getting this from the show satisfaction (great show btw☺) I would totally go out for dinner or have sex for $4000 LOL! If I didn't love my partner. I can see why people do it. Recently in Adelaide on a local radio station fresh fm they interviewed a sex worker and it was REALLY interesting listening to how they feel. She answered questions from public and it really opened my eyes. I signed the petition to make it legal for them. I would rather it be safe than sorry!!!

    I find it sad when I see prostitutes on main roads in our neighbour hood getting into cars then 5minutes later buying drugs and shooting up in toilets. It's such a sad thing to be doing and how they got to that point in their life.

    Precisely. HECS doesn't pay the rent and it doesn't put food in bellies either.

    Not shameful.
