A saying says, “If you do away with harlots, the world will convulse with lust”.

By history, prostitution or similar matters are social phenomenon. They cannot be prevented by moral issue pressure alone. Most of them are driven by economic constrained. But these people are better than a lazy man. For so very long years, no matter how the church has condemned, still prostitution exist. The state no matter how they punished this matter, yet it still exist.

Prostitution Is A Universal Issue

This is a universal issue started from the ancient world and yet it is still an issue nowadays. How our religion and faith can help the people involved in this craft?

There are young children involved - ages between 10 and 16 above. Some are products of broken families, victims of drug addiction, sexual and physical abuse, and depressed teenagers and of course, the spousal abuse.

The Biblical Definition

The Bible defines prostitution as the act or practice of promiscuous sexual relations, especially for money. Several words are used for a woman and a man who engages in illicit sexual activity for pay, including HARLOT, whore, and prostitute.

Several classes of harlots existed in the ancient world. One type was the temple prostitute, who performed sexual acts at a heathen temple. Both male and female cult prostitutes presided at these temples. Whenever a righteous king ruled Judah, this king sought to remove the temple prostitutes from the land <2 Kin. 23:4-14>.

A second class of prostitutes consisted of those who owned bars or inns and had sexual relations with the patrons who desired their services. Rahab of Jericho was such a woman. God had mercy on her, and she was delivered and transformed. Her name is included in the genealogy of the Messiah. Jerusalem was pictured as playing the part of a harlot. But instead of being paid for her services, she paid others! .

Should We Condemn These People Involved?

There are macho dancers and escort girls engaged in this craft with their motives: to support their schooling and their less fortunate families. Some of them have been lucky and have finished their studies.

I would rather fraternize with these people whose reasons are to make a living in this dog-eat-dog-world than with those who disguise themselves in veils of holiness when in truth and in fact they do the worst things, such as, steal in the disguise of religion. I’d rather be with prostitutes than tolerate hypocrisy as if they live modest lives. I’m not trying to justify prostitution because it is still unlawful but then we should not be quick to judge these people for their respective reasons, they may have to be engaged in this oldest profession but we should not treat them like criminals.

Who Would Help The Victims?

There are cases that pimps seek out young girls usually runaways or loners. They show off their fancy cars, clothes, jewelries and money leading them to believe that they too can achieve a life of luxury.

At the first opportunity, they move them from their hometowns to unfamiliar places. There they start - the abuse becoming physically and sexually violent forcing her into unwanted sex. They control where these young go, what they do and whom they can speak to. They take all of their money so they are financially dependent on them hoping to prevent them escaping. They are sexually exploited and being treated as no more than a piece of human garbage!

What If Prostitution Is Legalized Throughout The World?

By legalizing prostitution it will allow the act to be managed instead of ignored. Pimps and organized crime figures, which regularly treat their workers on subhuman levels, would no longer control women. Prostitutes would no longer be strong-armed by pimps or organized crime rings. And there would also be health-safety improvements.

A Form Of Slavery

President Bush was quoted saying, "There's a special evil in the abuse and exploitation of the most innocent and vulnerable. The victims of sex trade see little of life before they see the very worst of life-an underground of brutality and lonely fear. Those who create these victims and profit from their suffering must be severely punished. Those who patronize this industry debase themselves and deepen the misery of others. And governments that tolerate this trade are tolerating a form of slavery."

You have many good points, one is with decriminalization. As with many of our social problems around the world, our inability to get past moral judgments has allowed the criminal element free reign. These issues must be viewed with an open mind, unencumbered by prejudicial belief structures in order for real help to be given to the victims of them.

You are so right. In the areas where prostitution is legal there are health regulations in place and the prostitutes are able to work in a safe environment.

Thank you loverme and you're always welcome.

I love this line: "sacrificing her virginity to any one" a good story to tell.

Women are not hot stuff for fun and sexual satisfaction...
