Kimberly Klinger Biography

Title:
Outreach Manager for Screenscope, Inc.
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“[A]ny variety of sexual exploration–as long as it isn’t exploitative or harmful–can’t be considered evil, yet that is exactly how prostitution is regarded. If a woman or man chooses to exchange sex for money and does it in a way that causes no harm to either party, then they should be free to do so.

…It would seem that decriminalization should be a key point in any humanistic feminist perspective on prostitution. Every woman’s choices should be legally and socially respected whether a given woman chooses to be a wife, a CEO, or a prostitute.”

“Prostitution, Humanism, and a Woman’s Choice,” The Humanist, Jan.-Feb. 2003
