    Bullshit. The only way is to legalize prostitution. There is no other way.

    Cheers,

    So much propaganda...

    I agree with jailmon that prostitution should be legalized (will of the peoples and all of that)...

    But... that being said I believe that prostitution should only be legal for men and women over the age of 23.

    I do not believe that anyone under the age of 23-24 truly understands this business.

    Considering how agencies always "lie" on the age of the providers, it would be hell to apply. Adults are adults, im one of those guy that believe everything should be alright at 18 and find the law in the states pretty dumb that to drink you have to be 21, but you can enroll yourself and kill people at 18... lol.

    I like the concept

    Gave me the idea for my new website... "GenX-Date"

    On 80% of the male profiles under "income" it displays the much more realistic "Income minus Alimony"

    and on the remaining 20% under "Hobbies" it simply contains the following link......... http://www.escortsxo.com/today/

    Be carefull with your suggestion, because you are going to raise your lots of protestations.
    I said, many years ago on Merb, my idea of the perfect timing would be that women should be 25 years old at minimum before entering that kind of activity, for the reason to permit themselves to develop plenty there own sexuality based only on their own desires, and to be also confident more in themselves then. And be more prudent. We know young people are sometimes just a bit too much adventurous and learn the hard ways.
    We all did. Escorting needs to be done wisely, not by impulses.

    This said, of course, there are many young ladies who had lived hard time and they become older and more mature and prudent in their minds that the majority of their ages. Because they already learn the hard ways. We can say it's a case by case things, but it will stay just an hopeful dreamed wish. Life is NOT perfect.

    And to be back to the topic, I think that kind of reverse-psy-advertising is kinda intelligent, but not really working. Just look at the SAAQ ads against bad behaviours while driving? I know they want to raise horror emotions to print the idea, and to let believe that an ordinary hobbyst has something to do with the murder, to make them guilty. That's a sophism. Because we could then make all the men responsible for the rape, attack and murder of all the women made by other men on the planet then if we follow that logic.

    If our society established that you are an adult at 18 years old, then a woman is supposed to be mature enough to make that decision for herself. This should be the only regulation enforced. The rest isn't the state's business.

    While Maria has very sound reasoning and it is for sure depending on the individual, if a law has to be passed then I don't know how you can argue that if at 18 you are old enough to join the armed forces and die for your country how then can you be deemed not old enough to do anything else at that age.[QUOTE]

    It is common for a business or an industry to argue for eliminating certain sources of competition from the marketplace. Of course, the reason given is never for self-interest but always for the good of the potential competitor or the consumer.
    Strasser: You see, Captain, the situation is not as much under control as you believe.
    Renault: My dear Major, we are trying to cooperate with your government, but we cannot regulate the feelings of our people.
    Strasser: Captain Renault, are you entirely certain which side you're on?
    Renault: I have no conviction, if that's what you mean. I blow with the wind, and the prevailing wind happens to be from Vichy.

    Most of the providers I have seen in the 18-23 year old range were single moms and/or college students. Not only were they using the escorting money for really useful purposes, but that is a period of time in which the alternative employment opportunities are not as beneficial in terms of pay, and most of the guys in their social circle who they might marry to provide additional financial support are not well established financially. It seems unfair to exclude the from the industry. Also, it would seem easier for a younger chick to manage the lifestyle and keep it hidden if she needs to. If she has kids, they are too young to understand daily activities and societal norms, and if she does not have kids, it is more accepted by her family and friends for a younger girl to be a "party girl" who is with "friends" during many evenings.

    Oh well, Patron, you size perfectly what could make escorting for someone older, much much harder.
    And I would had, the more the kids are getting older, and are intelligent/conscient, the more it's difficult.

    Don't worry, I got that idea of a "minimal age" around my beginning, when I was still having all my innocence intact and believing that each of us without any exception, was having a heart.
    I still want a better world, but I keep it to an "affordable" check-reality level.

    And note that I was just replying to bikone, extensively I convince, but that was just a simple (long) reply

    If it's a good idea for there to be a minimum age to work as an escort, would it not also be a good idea for there to be a maximum age for escorts (perhaps it should be twice the proposed minimum age of 25, so 50 would be the maximum age). Of course, the maximum age would be for the good of the escorts. Escorting is a stressful, physically and emotionally challenging profession and beyond a certain age women should just not do that kind of work.

    I think the state could pass a number of other laws and regulations to improve the working lives of escorts. Obviously it's not safe for escorts to work in an unsafe environment such as a hotel room or a home (either their own or that of a client). The government doesn't allow most other businesses to operate out of a hotel room or home so it shouldn't allow a dangerous business like escorting to do so. The government should establish state-owned and operated brothels that would ensure safe working environments for escorts and their clients. In Quebec, the sale of most kinds of alcohol is only allowed in government owned and operated SAQ stores. It's perfectly logical that sex should be sold only in the same kind of safe, regulated environment.

    Furthermore, the state should establish a rating system for escorts. There is a government sanctioned system for grading maple syrup so why shouldn't there be a similar government rating system for escorts? The government could even use the same grades since people are already familiar with them: AA, A, B, C and D. Such a rating system would protect the interests of both escorts and their clients. Wouldn't such a government system be much better than the chaotic, unregulated and untrustworthy ratings that are found on escort review sites such as MERB?

    We also need a government licensing system for escorts. The way things work now, any woman of legal age (18) can call herself an escort! Can you believe that!? Escorting is a profession that requires high standards of physical attractiveness, intellectual and emotional intelligence and the ability to perform strenuous physical activity. The licensing standards could be set by a government sanctioned professional association of escorts. Once the standards were set, escorts could apply for a government license (at a minimum cost of $1000 or so) to practice the profession of escorting. The number of licenses granted would be set at a reasonable number of a few hundred per year in a city such as Montreal.

    Does anyone else have any great ideas on how the government can improve the business of escorting for both escorts and their clients?

    I like your post! I am surprised at the number of people asking for more laws and regulations on a forum discussing something which is essentially illegal.

    It is always a disaster. The Nevada brothels are the most expensive and least popular choice among johns and hookers in the U.S., and have become a very small portion of the total commercial sex transactions after technology made them obsolete relics. The women are imprisoned in the middle of nowhere and the prices are ridiculously high with clinical service offerings mandated by the state of Nevada. If you read ISG, you will find that the Netherlands is one of the least popular sex tourism destinations in Europe, and I can't believe any sex worker wants to be literally out on display in a window box. And there is a rush among johns to get to Germany before July, 2017 in case the condoms for everything rule law lessens the enjoyment at FKKs. That new law was actively opposed by sex workers. Legalization means regulation and that is never beneficial. Either full decriminalization or criminalization with selective enforcement is the best way.
