6. agree that that is interesting

And yes, those of us who have seen the problems up close tend not to think of it as victimless.

Of course, the prostituted women are the victims, so yes it is the victimizers - johns, pimps, dealers - whose activities should be criminalized.

I once read a description of prostitution as the easiest way to get money out of stupid men's pockets and into the hands of drug traffickers and organized crime in general.

Pretty accurate, and true whether the activities are legal or not, given the large role that drug addiction plays in the lives of the women and that human trafficking plays in prostitution generally.
