In Canada and in my home province of Ontario, prostitution reform had been quite a popular topic of discussion among some circles. This is not surprising at all considering the cliché that says that prostitution is the oldest job in the world.
First of all, I must say that even if I am personally against this activity for ethical reasons, I consider that people who want to use this service have all the rights to use it. Of course, this activity must be between two consenting and major adults.
But, I believe that the argument runs far deeper than this, exactly like the situation in a few counties in Nevada where prostitution is legit.
In this specific case, when prostitution become a legit enterprise, this becomes a better situation for both the consumer than the worker, by the fact that the client can behaves like a normal customer, doing a normal transaction and this in a context of a free market and without any pressure.
Also, for the worker, this gives a work area which is far more safe and appealing than a not well-lit street corner.
Of course, these reforms don’t give a perfect situation, but it’s far better than the current catch-22esque situation.
With all this, I don’t see any problems however that provinces, counties or municipalities could have their own laws in this matter.
