    This is encouraging. I had assumed the UN favored a simplistic prohibitionist stance on prostitution, but maybe I should review their statements …

    Nice blog, by the way. I came here via Bleeding Heart Libertarians.

    Would pros be allowed to advertise and network openly? How would advertising work in this market? I think the UN has delivered a slippery argument. If regulated, like in Sweden, prostitution would still be an underground trade.

        What do you mean by ‘more legal’? Something is either legal, or illegal.

            Thanks for clarifying.

            Could you help me with something? I posted this blog on FB and I got a few nasty comments. One of them was “Um… Legalized slavery did not stop human trafficking.” I responded by noting that slavery was legal, taxed, and regulated, where sex work is not. How would you respond to such a naive comment?

            BTW, I got here via Billyrock.

            In the Billyrock interview you said that you’ve been writing a lot about the sex trade lately. I live in Seattle, which I understand is an active place for human trafficking. It’s a hot local topic. The topic often enters conversation, and I have a hard time differentiating from sex work and human trafficking–the topics tend to overlap. Do you have any writings that would help me make sense of it?
