    I have no ill feelings towards those who do it as a job, and don't lack respect for them as people, however I would say it is shameful because it's not a profession many people would announce they do. People are happy to say they are nurses, lawyers, doctors, teachers, miners, railway workers, or that they work in tourism, education, the health system, retail, or other areas of employment. Given that, yes it is shameful, but it shouldn't be.

    I feel that any profession, where a person is not treated like a person, but rather an object- whether that be prostitution, stripping, centrefolds are not good. It is just my personal opinion mind. I've said it before, but every single person I've ever known who has got into prostitution, "massage" parlours, stripping etc where all emotionally damaged - I am not saying that all workers are, but there is a huge amount. It is a destructive industry.

    Sex workers are a marginalized and stigmatized group of people who want rights and recognition for their work to be considered work, hence the usage of the term "sex workers" which is now used by governmental agencies, NGOs, academics and so on. Even the "prostitution act" has been changed to the "sex work act". There are derogatory words we don't use for gay people, disabled people, people of certain ethnic backgrounds...sex workers should have the same right to be referred to in a politically correct manner. But like all social changes, they take time to be adopted by society at large.

    This is going to sound really ignorant and dumb but I am honestly curious
    ....

    I dont know much about the industry and im sure its not black and white. ..


    I've always wondered why people would pay for sex instead of just finding someone on a dating site... a friend... etc who wants the same thing???

    There are jobs which don't involve opening their legs for several random men each day.

    I would think it is better to have a debt and pay it off slowly rather than paying off the debt but have no self respect and in the process be treated like a piece of meat.

    Can I ask a question of those that think it is all good and ok. Would you think it ok for that person to be a mum? And is it then ok for mum to tell the kids what she does for a living? Or is it supposed should it be a secret? And if you have to keep something like that a secret do you think that in itself probably tells you there is something wrong with the profession?

    I knew this thread would be bad, but using terms like "opening your legs" and saying prostitutes lack intelligence makes you 100x worse in my eyes. Jesus Christ, so rude

    That applies to dads as well, I wouldn't have been happy if my mum or dad were sex workers.

    I once knew a guy who was good looking , fit and a nice enough guy. He could get women, had several long term relationships. He wasn't the most together guy emotionally I have ever met though. He had issues.

    I knew he went to prostitute ,when I asked him why he told me that he wasn't paying for the sex only, he was paying them to leave .

    Some people just want the act and nothing more...
