    Not arguing that it would make it safer for both parties involved, just thinking that more people would partake in this recreation when legalized. I have heard of people traveling to NV just to do so because it's legal.

    What's ironic is that the two counties where it NEEDS to be - Washoe (Reno) and Clark (Vegas) are prohibited by law due to the population size. And it is those two counties where you have the pimps, underage runaways, drugs and STD problems...........At least the closest to Reno is only 15-20 minutes away in Storey County in a HUGE industrial park whereas Vegas' closest is almost an hour; hence the proliferation of "outcall escort services"

    Its funny. subjects like this bring out human hypocrisy. (Thats not aimed at anyone nor am I singling anyone out so don't go getting butthurt)
    We do not want the government regulating our guns (or many other facets of our lives) yet we want them to regulate sex? A basic human need? Nah, I'm good.
    Everything the government touches goes to sh*t.

    If a lady wants to rent her fish taco by the bite or a man wants to rent his pogo stick by the hop, so be it. It's actually ridiculous to me that it's illegal to begin with.
    The government should mind its own business.
    Government is already too large, over reaching and over bearing. I do not wish to give them anymore control over peoples lives.

    That said, yes, human trafficking and underage exploitation should be a crime...One consenting adult purchasing intimate companionship from another in a mutually beneficial exchange.... not so much.
    People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have most to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.

    Just as an aside.... This is what government regulation gets you.

    These are recreational/medicinal marijuana receipts.
    Note the difference in subtotal and total.

    Which is precisely why legalizing it did nothing to stop the illegal flow. Not only are the taxes high but the prices are high as well.

    16 is legal in some states; which is why I said 16. Change it to 17, 18 or whatever you'd like. Would the age make a difference if it was your child?

    BTW, because you may know of an 11 year old who is willing to "explore", are you suggesting it is ok - regardless of age? Sick comparison if you ask me.

    I never said 11 was OK, merely said, having taught 11 year olds, that they are starting to have sex. The NV girls are treated like casino workers when it comes to getting their license to practice, so no one at 16 is working there. Have to be a MINIMUM of 18. Surprising;y, there are a lot of older women working in them as well, as older guys seem to like women 30 and up...........Housewives, girlfriends, etc. It is just a simple business transaction, nothing more.

    You're spinning your own comments now. What was said, cannot be unsaid. You used it as an example (in the same context) of why prostitution is ok. Nuff said.....

    You may have the last say.

    No, he did not. There are plenty of occasions where Fitasc Shooter will say something that is absurd to me but he never said that.

    You are treading very close to a very thin line..........
