Heidi Fleiss Biography

Title:
Former Madam
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“I think the laws on prostitution are archaic. Especially in regards to pornography -- if a camera’s there, it’s okay. I think if the U.S. decriminalized and regulated it, then everyone would benefit. By making it illegal, this is where murders, and drugs, and nefarious activity comes in. That’s why the women always suffer…. If the White House calls me to be the head of legalizing prostitution, I’d be up for it, because men have no place in the sex business -- except paying for it!”
