    It's illegal because prudes with power don't like it. It's not prosecuted because of all the crimes going on, it's way down the list of what bothers the average person. Even people who hate prostitution and want it to be illegal are more concerned with murder and other such crimes. It's a great example of a "victimless crime."

    Because the government doesn't get it's share, and Christians don't like the idea of sex outside marriage. Sex between consenting adults is 100% legal, so it doesn't make sense why simply putting a price tag on it should be illegal.

    Because why would the government fund a sting program for prostitutes?

    It's not worth it

    prostitution is illegal. because its wrong. It is the unessisary spread of touble, drugs sex and sexually transmitted diseases. The publicly displayed on the tv or computer are for conversations only, what ever happens after that is on the people.

    i think occasionally they do get busted but i am sure they make plenty of money for bail. And there is no reason for it to be illegal .

    They do get busted. It's illegal because we are non-taxable and the government hates non-taxable items (Weed,street drugs, Etc)

  • Because they didn't sell sex. They sold massages; you get the sex for free.

    Isn't it fun dodging the law?
