Why is Prostitution illegal?

Its no different from paying for or getting paid for services. People have sex for money in porn videos on a daily but privately servicing someone or a group is illegal?

Do you think it would be illegal if it can be regulated and taxed? a.k.a the gov benefiting from it?

Update:

For those who say STD's and AIDs....

Being a porn star is legal.... and guess what STD"s and AID's are present in the porn industry. Not to mention people having sex is FREE but getting paid for it is when it becomes illegal

    Pornography has super heavy regulations on STDs, they have to take tests relatively commonly(perhaps biweekly).

    Prostitution is generally highly associated with abuse, underage sex, drugs, almost ownership of humans, trafficking and all that sort of stuff. Pornography is practically all based on what the actor/actresses want to do. Nothing is forced unless they allow it and all of them are over 18. You can leave whenever you want, I believe.<-not sure but, there are a few examples

    I believe what you are trying to ask is the line between escort services and prostitution. This is really a gray area...

    It really depends on where you are, state laws are different for escort businesses everywhere. I believe that escort businesses are allowed to exist simply because they follow regulations and are registered for that state but, it still gets super blurry. Hope that helped.

    It baffles me yet buying a gun and killing people is perfectly legal.

    It’s legal in Nevada and regulated so it is extremely safe to have sex with them. It only involves adults; you have to be 21 and up to be a prostitute. If it was like that everywhere rape would dramatically decrease as well as acts of violence by incels.

    I'll let you in on a little secret.

    Do you know how you can tell the sign of a good wife. When you're in her house and you see a well worn out path on the floor between the kitchen and the bedroom.
