Proponents of legalizing prostitution believe it would reduce crime, improve public health, increase tax revenue, help people out of poverty, get prostitutes off the streets, and allow consenting adults to make their own choices. They contend that prostitution is a victimless crime, especially in the 11 Nevada counties where it remains legal.

Opponents believe that legalizing prostitution would lead to increases in sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS, global human trafficking, and violent crime including rape and homicide. They contend that prostitution is inherently immoral, commercially exploitative, empowers the criminal underworld, and promotes the repression of women by men.

Whatever is best to protect the young girls and women who end up in this industry.

While the idea of sex is always a fun thought. A lot of women do it because of a number of reasons are being forced to do it because of money,sex slavery, or just for fun much like porn stars.

I'd say it should be legal, but very strictly regulated, perhaps even government owned/run monopoly.

That's a good idea. If the government could keep a close eye on it and make it safer. That would be good.
