    However, I also can't help but think that part of the appeal is the thrill someone gets from doing that's illegal. Do you think that making it legal will ultimately reduce use because of it?

    When diplomatic relations with Cuba were restored, people were excited about Cuban cigars. Now that the novelty has worn off, no one gives a fuck about the nationality of cigars anymore.
    True, often in my HS when we had a speaker on the 'dangers of drug use", the speaker would mention that a lot of teens and college age young adults do get into drugs cause of the fact it IS illegal, so it's seen as them being rebellious..

    My thoughts exactly. The way i see it, there are 3 main key good points to legalizing Prostitution.
    1) the gals who DO it, will be safer as they are certified and licenced. Many don't report jons who rape them cause OF their illegal status.
    2) the johns will feel safer as well, cause to get/keep those licenses they know the gals are getting checked medically every quarter (or month)..
    3) While yes it won't weed out ALL trafficed gals, it WILL help to reduce them.

    Mannix is a private eye from a 1970s TV show.
