Proponents of prostitution argue that prostitution is good way of increasing the government’s revenue. Thus, legalizing prostitution would create employment opportunities, and increase tax returns for the government. The proponents also believe that prostitution is should be legal since it is a harmless act. Legalizing the practice would help the government control the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and underage sex workers through reverse psychology. In this case, making the act of prostitution legal would increase the number of women willing to work, improve the conditions under which they practice, and reduce the number of men willing to seek their services. On the other hand, the government has several alternatives for creating job opportunities for its citizens without undermining the morals of the society. Embracing these alternatives will help the government raise its taxes without sacrificing the decency of its citizens. Prostitution is harmful since it affects the families of those involved. It also exposes them to several health risks and this makes it harmful. Further, if reverse psychology principles were a good alternative, then so many people would not be still eating junk food at McDonalds. This implies that making prostitution readily accessible and available may not reduce the art of the practice. Concisely, prostitution degrades the morals of the society by making women mere sex objects and increasing the rate of STD transmission. Thus, this practice should not be legalized.
