From John to Oscar

Think about this for a moment: Prostitution is illegal, but making porn movies is not.

You can't legally pay someone to have sex with you, but you can pay someone to have sex with someone else and film it. You can legally pay someone to have sex with you if you film it, because in that instance, you're not paying them for sex. You're paying them for 'acting'.

Thanks to defective yeti for bringing this up.

You know, that really is a good point I've never thought about it that way before. So what do you think, legalize prostitution or ban porno? LOL

Well, since you ask - I've always thought prostitution being illegal was rather dumb. The Europeans definately have the right idea.
