Ease prostitution laws to reduce prison overcrowding

Prostitution laws restrain women’s choice to make easy money by exploiting men’s need for sex, proximity and love. As a side effect, they fill up US prisons with felons guilty of victimless crimes.

County officials: End felony arrests for prostitution to reduce jail crowding

After a single prostitution conviction, suspects can face a felony in a subsequent arrest, which Gainer calls “draconian.”

“Most states in the country don’t do it like we do it. Only eight states have a statute for felony prostitution — and Illinois is one of them,” Gainer told the Sun-Times. “With the jail hitting its limits in population, it’s incumbent for us to look at who actually needs to spend two months in jail awaiting trial,” she said, noting her research shows the cost of jailing suspected prostitutes costs upwards of $9.5 million. “There are better options.”

Under a resolution introduced Wednesday at the regular County Board meeting, officials are also urging the state Legislature to amend Illinois law and wipe the felony prostitution charge off the books.

Sadly, the main concern is not with the poor victims of repressive sex laws: the prostitutes offering their services to men in need for sex and companionship, or the men who seek entertainment, sex, companionship and are willing to pay for that.

The main worry are overcrowded prisons, and government expenses for imprisoning people who commit victimless crimes.

Faced With Overcrowded Prisons, Chicago Considers Ending Felony Arrests For Prostitution

Elected officials in Chicago are calling for a moratorium on felony charges for prostitution to reduce overcrowding at Cook County jail. The jail now houses 10,008 detainees and is likely to exceed the maximum capacity of 10,150 soon. In a news conference Wednesday, several county commissioners pointed to the law’s disproportionate focus on non-violent felonies like prostitution: […]

A Swedish sex worker on absurdity of Swedish prostitution laws

  1. We want to save you (the sex worker). And if you don’t want to be saved, you will be punished.
  2. Are women prostituting themselves out of free choice?  Does a nurse work long night shifts out of free choice?  Or because she needs to pay the rent.
  3. It is illegal to buy temporary sexual services. What about clients that come for 20 years, outlasting several marriages?
  4. It is illegal to pay sex with money, or drugs. So if "paying" sex with a few drinks is illegal, then almost all sex is illegal prostitution.
  5. Landlords are obliged to kick out prostitutes, lest they will be charged with pimping
  6. even roommates can be charged with pimping, so sex workers MUST work alone, reducing safety.
  7. grown-up children who live for free with their mother, while studying, can get convicted for pimping.
  8. clients can not call police if they suspect trafficking or pimping. They would be accused of a crime if they called police

We discuss only

the impediments for responsible adults to decide about their own work and fate. The serious issues of teenage sexuality are not even mentioned. For example, in many countries one can have sex with a 16 year old. But if one gives her money, it becomes a felony.

100 Countries and Their Prostitution Policies. Germany fully legalized prostitution in 2002

 

100 Countries and Their Prostitution Policies

This page details 100 countries’ policies on prostitution, brothel ownership, and pimping. These countries were chosen in order to be inclusive of major religions, geographical regions, and policies towards prostitution. Taiwan and Scotland were included in the country listings for China and the United Kingdom, respectively, in accordance with the country listings and population estimates provided in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) World Factbook.

Whenever possible, we have included government documents regarding prostitution such as laws, court decisions, employment information, etc. under the name of the country. While reasonable efforts have been made to assure the accuracy of the data provided, do not rely on this information without first checking an official edition of the applicable law. This page was last updated Nov. 4, 2009.

 

Legal in 50 (50%); Limited Legality in 11 (11%); Illegal in 39 (39%); Total: 100 (100%) [of the countries surveyed]

In some sex tourist destinations (Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines) prostitution is totally illegal. Amazingly, Germany is one of the most liberal countries. Brothels are legal, prostitution is legal, pimping is legal. 

Germany

Prostitution: Legal
Legalized in 1927.

[Editor’s Note: The date of the legalization of prostitution in Germany is disputed. Some consider prostitution to have been legalized or decriminalized since the passage of the 1927 Law for Combating Venereal Diseases. However, others consider prostitution was legalized through the Prostitution Act of January 2002 that improved the social welfare and legal rights of prostitutes. Although prostitution is legal under the German Constitution, prior to the 2002 Prostitution Act, a series of regulatory laws and court rulings had restricted the legal and social welfare rights of prostitutes because prostitution was considered in violation of Germany’s moral code.]

Brothel Ownership: Legal

Pimping: Legal
Exploitative behavior considered criminal.

 

"An estimated 400,000 prostitutes work in Germany, and 1.2 million customers are said to use their services daily. Revenues are estimated at 6 billion euros every year – equivalent to those of companies like Porsche and Adidas.

 

Switzerland

It is interesting how two of the most organized countries in the world have legal prostitution, instead of the morass of prohibition and illegality.

18 USC § 1384 prohibits US military to solicit legalized prostitutes abroad (1 year imprisonment)

Young men raging with high testosterone levels make the bravest and most heroic fighters. The same hormones cause these soldiers to have high sex drives.

These war heroes, ready to die for their country, are taken overseas and kept away from women, confined among men, for months on end. Pent-up sexuality due to suchanti prostitution  policy may cause higher rates of harassment, date rape, forcible rape. Young immature soldiers may embark on premature marriages, whose consequences and failures will come to financially and emotionally haunt the men for the rest of their life. Heterosexual men might reluctantly engage in homosexuality just to relieve pressure, similar to prisons situations.

Women are now allowed in the armed forces. Harassment charges prevent soldiers from joking and bonding like they used to for millennia. Add to this the danger of date rape accusations or false rape charges and the low level of evidence needed to be convicted of rape.

All this might sap morale of troops, reduce fighting capacity and discourage army enrollment.


18 USC § 1384 prohibits American military to solicit prostitutes, Adult men, ready to die for their country,  but not allowed to take care of their pent up sexual urges. 1 year in prison for visiting a legal brothel and helping the local economy? High testosterone levels make men courageous fighters, and make them more sexual.

USFK_Prostitution_WarningFor what reasons, and to what deleterious effects does the US government interference in the life of millions, preventing them from perusing legal sex work in other countries.

We don’t outlaw soldiers’ use of IPhones or Nike sneakers, under threat of imprisonment, just because there are some irregularities in their factories.

Instead, we try to solve the problem. We inspect companies, encourage them to engage in fair labor practices. Similarly we could encourage correct practices in prostitution.

  • Blackmailing of US personnel by foreign agents is less a danger when prostitution visits are legal. 1 year prison terms with dishonorable discharge make any soldier that ever visited a prostitute a potential target of blackmail. Even those who do not frequent prostitutes can be blcackmailed with threats of false accusations of prostitution. Any girl friend, any prostitute he did not hire can allege he offered or gave her money.
  • Health problems, VD can be controlled by information and careful sexual practices.
  • Sex trafficking is mostly a lie. Where it exists it can usually be fought by legalizing prostitution and work visas for willing qualified foreign prostitutes.

Unfortunately, the Antifeminist seems right again: the feminist sexual trade Union wants to raise the price of sex, so women can get the maximum benefit and commitment out of men, in exchange of sex and promise of sex.

All other arguments are phony excuses backed by exaggerated and falsified data. Remember Robert Kurzban about finding non-existent victims to justify our pre-conceived beliefs.

Human-Stupidity is against pre-conceived dogma, in favor of truth, knowledge and research. Thus we suggest a few ……..

Politically incorrect academic research projects

How does prohibition of prostitution in general, but especially in military personnel deployed overseas cause problems?

What is the impact on military  men (and civilians) if all their sexual outlets get cut off systematically, under the threat of imprisonment? Does this

  • increase levels of depression
  • incite immature young men and adolescents to get married, with all the subsequent dangers of traumatic divorce, life-long wage slavery, alimony, child support
  • cause rape and serious date rape due to lack of sexual outlets and pent-up sexual frustration
  • (compare Milton Diamond‘s research on how legalized pornography reduces sex crimes)
  • cause heterosexual men in the military to seek homosexual relations, just like prisoners?
  • What are the psychological effects of reluctant homosexual acts on heterosexual men?
  • impact morale of the military and reduce fighting readiness
  • discourage men from enlisting for the military
  • encourage women to become gold diggers, to exploit the marriage, divorce and harassment industry to earn money, because their chances of openly and honestly charging money engaging in prostitution is curtailed?
  • Is there research how sex tourism, prostitution visits impact men’s well being, by measuring levels of life satisfaction, productivity, depression, serotonin.
  • How did soldiers’ vacations to Subic Bay, Angeles City and Bangkok brothels impact morale, well being and fighting reediness?

Anyone has information and links on Northern European countries sponsoring visits to prostitutes for social security recipients as a means for emotional health? There should be some research backing such policies.

In most countries, nobody ever would get funding for my proposed projects. This is another reason we need men’s studies to counteract repressive anti-scientific women’s studies ideologies.
