In a Post – Christian Era, Why Is Prostitution Illegal?

Eye-Pad Pro....Why, in a post-Christian world, is prostitution illegal? If a nascent mother has a right to kill her inconvenient infant by reason of her ownership of her body, does she not also have the right to sell that body’s services to her advantage? It is after all her body and unlike abortion, harms no one else.

Under Christianity, prostitution was illegal because it offered the pleasures of sex without the responsibility for its results. Women were stuck with a decade or two of responsibility after reproduction; men could escape immediately after fertilization unless society enforced equal responsibility upon them; hence marriage and the outlawing of prostitution. But we have abandoned Christianity and entitled women to carefree sex in parallel with men. So, why is prostitution illegal? Particularly when we need the jobs …

So what exactly is going on here?

  1. Ha! Well said. What’s going on here is hypocrisy, women as sexually empowered, fully autonomous beings, and yet so weak and vunerable, such potential victims we need laws against not only prostitution, but consent laws on college campuses where men must be able to prove they have attained consent during each and every step of the event.
