Prohibition or fully illegal – Prostitution is forbidden, all acts relating to prostitution and people caught doing them will be punished. This includes “solicitation”, which is when someone offers or advertises sex for money, or when a person offers someone money in exchange for sex. Decriminalization – Prostitution itself is not illegal, but some of the acts relating to it may be. For example, standing on the street offering sex for sale might not be legal. Or asking someone to have sex with you may be illegal. Almost always, trying to get someone to become a prostitute when they don’t want to is still illegal. Abolition – This is not a type of law itself, but it might be a reason behind the laws in some places, usually similar to decriminalization.
The long-term goal of “abolition” is to “abolish” prostitution, meaning to try to get it to stop completely. In this approach, the prostitutes themselves are seen as victims, and are not usually punished. Acts connected with prostitution (running a brothel, etc.) are punished. Often people requesting the services of a prostitute are punished as well. Regulation – Prostitution is legal, but the state regulates it. This may be because it is seen as acceptable between adults who say they are okay with it, because it is seen as necessary or because the law-makers accept that it is not going to stop even if it is illegal and a better idea is to make it safer for everyone. Running a brothel requires a license and prostitutes need to register and undergo regular health checks. Prostitutes and brothel-owners pay taxes like other workers and businesses. Suggestions according to Alexandra Kollontai
“We must therefore not only confront the problem of prostitution but seek a solution that is in line with our basic principles and the programme of social and economic change adhered to by the party of the communists. We must, above all, clearly define what prostitution is. Prostitution is a phenomenon which is closely linked with unearned income, and it thrives in the epoch dominated by capital and private property. Prostitutes, from our point of view, are those women who sell their bodies for material benefit – for decent food, for clothes and other advantages; prostitutes are all those who avoid the necessity of working by giving themselves to a man, either on a temporary basis or for life.”
In our point of view, we can’t blame them for entering this kind of job. This is something they don’t want. I can’t give any good solution, because it’s their decision whether to enter this kind of job or doing better in life to have a better job. We suggest that they study hard to avoid ending up getting a job as low as a prostitute. One way of avoiding this is to have dignity so they would realize that this job isn’t good. A solution we can give is they should ask help from the government, they should let the government know that they need attention against poverty. They should think about the circumstances before entering jobs like this.
They should be aware that earning good money is not that fast. They should work hard for it to avoid a shameful job like this. They should be aware of health effects before being a prostitute. They should avoid this kind of job since they are also committing a sin which is premarital sex. But we think they are a victim since their intention is good, which is to earn money. However, they should take into consideration that this is not a decent job. There are many ways to avoid this kind of job. They should think of the thoughts of people on what kind of person she is. They should keep in mind the risks of prostitution that can lead to their death. Nevertheless this job is not the job for a woman of dignity and self-respected person.
