Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"Some legislation institutes legalize prostitution, some decriminalize, and some punish the women that are in prostitution. Others punish the customer, and I like that approach. The Swedish Law makes buying sex, not selling sex, a crime. You get up to six months imprisonment for this offense."
Experts Individuals with MDs, JDs, PhDs, individuals with graduate degrees and significant post-graduate involvement in fields relevant to the study of prostitution, and government officials with significant involvement in, or related to, prostitution issues.
