If prostitution was legalized in the U.S: Do you believe it would lead to higher infidelity rates?


According to "statistics" cheating and infidelity are at an all time high for both men and women in marriages. Aside from the religious and moral beliefs about those who engage in prostitution do you believe one of the "hidden motives" for making it illegal is to help preserve the sanctity of marriage and courtship in our society? For decades some folks have argued legalizing and taxing prostitution would eliminate a lot of the criminal element. If prostitution was legalized would it effect (your) lifestyle choices? or Are you more concerned about the lifestyle choices of others?

    I imagine most people who are into legalizing it would prefer not to have to drive an hour or so out of Las Vegas or Reno. In fact you can't walk down Las Vegas Blvd without being handed escort flyers! LOL!

    Excellent points.

    Aside from being a "lazy approach" There's those who also prefer a variety of "no strings attached" liaisons with discreet "professionals" and guys considered "unattractive" can be w/"hot" one$ they'd never get for free. LOL!

    So you're essentially saying if it were legal there would be no "additional" men in marriages or relationships who would use their services than those who already do.

    The laws aren't keeping some {other men} from partaking?

    Excellent point.

    If one wants to cheat they will. Some might argue being able to legally order a prostitute like a pizza might make it too easy to cheat. Cheaters are caught due to maintaining an affair not "one & done" with "silent" NSA mates.

    It's always interesting to see how other countries handle the legalization of things the U.S. population fears. Some folks might "try it" if it's legal. However smoking cigarettes is legal but I've never had the desire to become a smoker.

    Excellent point regarding "amateurs". I never thought about there being people who'd jump into it to make some quick cash or as a "lark" now and then.

    My guess is there'd also be some young guys (tricks) looking to lose their virginity too.

    My guess is the "going rate" would also have a major impact.

    Anything under $100 would likely increase the amount of folks willing to try it. I suspect some folks see making it legal as "throwing in the towel".

    I suppose not all transactions take place in seedy hotels. Most likely there are also "high end" escort services for the rich.

    Regarding sexuality of today I believe the 60s era of "free love", the pill, & feminist movement had a large impact.
