The question I pose is why is it illegal, for the most part, in the United states. I find it morally objectionable as I am sure the majority of American society, but that hasn't stopped the gov't from making things illegal or legal in the past. when looked at from an unbiased viewpoint it is two consenting adults having sex. I think the problem the federal gov't has is the money involved. There is really no good way to tax sex and prostitution apparently is an industry that has potential to make a massive sum of money. Would people have a different view point on the issue if prostitutes charged lets say $1?
