It's Metafilter's 20th anniversary! To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! January 23, 6: Prostitution might be victimless crime , but the horrors described here certainly aren't; the problem is, how's a john with a conscience going to tell the difference?
A much longer report, terrifying in its thoroughness, on a topic lightly touched on here. I had to force myself to finish the article, just because it made me so uncomfortable. That is really, really disturbing. I'm stunned by it, I think. The distinction is important: I think this is a horrible atrocity against humanity worldwide. However what is described in this article is not prostitution anymore than slavery in the South was about people wanting to buy cotton and tobacco.
This is outright slavery, it is and will always be slavery. Nothing devastated me quite so much as the web site described in the last page of the article, the auction site. I like to think that I'm a world-hardened realist, but the prospect that this is happening right now, somewhere on the same Web on which you're writing and I'm reading, chilled me to the core. Chilled me to the core, nearly made me lose my dinner, and broke my heart.
My research into ways I can contribute to the fight against this sort of trafficking begins now. I believe legalization and regulation would mitigate some of this. None of the brothels mentioned were in NV, which I suspect is because they can legally exist, and therefore be somewhat policed. Big caveat though, it wouldn't help in the least with the underage cases, they'd still get abused.
Perhaps making sex in general a bit less taboo would help on that front. Yeah for an idea of how to have sex workers without the problems of violence and abuse just take a look at The Netherlands. Criminalization only adds to the exploitation by disenfranchising blocks of the population and thus making them easy targets for those who like to prey on the vulnerable.
