    I agree with Catherine that prostitution should be decriminalised. She sums up the arguments, moral, biological, legal and sociological with admirable brevity, and concision.

    With regard to the Levitt and Dubner book, my impression of their discussion of prostitution was that, with the availability of efficient contraception, non-sex-workers, ie your wife, your girlfriend, and others, were more available for sex, thus reducing the opportunities for sex-workers. One exception they mention is when a convention comes to town. The result is a kind of tidal inflow of part-time prostitutes boosting their incomes.

    regards
