    Since I know that prostituion is illegal in the USA, I am interested in, do prostitution and escort services exist like in Germany? Here it is not forbidden since 2002 (Prostitution in Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and it didnt do them much good. But that is another topic.

    Is it tolerated or are the law forces very strict with people who offer and "consuming" it? Here in Germany are plenty of providers, even expensive Escort Service like * web add deleted* this. I never quite understood who could afford it or needed it. But the pure count of sites and so on, seems that here is still a huge demand for it. Is it the same abroad?

    side question:
    Did anyone here in this community used such services?

    I have not availed myself of such a service, but a gentleman friend used one this weekend. So yes they exist here.

    Go to raleighbackpages and there are hundreds of ladies. But it is illegal. I think law enforcement just has too many other problems here to deal with

    Btw i have never tried one.

    It's illegal everywhere in USA, except for certain rural areas of Nevada. I think it's illegal even in Las Vegas, but I got so many fliers and commercials for it there that I think people mostly ignore the law.

    Now, here's one thing that I think is weird: prostitution is illegal in California, and the cops apparently do arrest people for prostitution. But the California porn industry is huge. I just can't make that work in my head. People are being paid for sexual acts in both cases, and if they are afraid of STDs then I have to say that making porn is not exactly the most hygienic business in the world. STDs are very common in the industry.

    As to who needs prostitutes: anyone who feels that he doesn't get as much sex (and/or companionship in some cases) as they would like could be a potential customer. This could range from someone who gets lots of sex, but who is an addict (and thus always wants more), to someone who never gets any at all, for whatever reason, but still has a sex drive.

    But if you're asking about the expensive ones specifically: first off as with most things you usually get what you pay for. Secondly, I think some guys are really into the whole thing, from flirting and chatting, to sex, to cuddling and showering together at the end. It takes a lot of time, so it necessarily becomes expensive.

    In NV, it's regulated by county. I believe only 2 counties in NV ban prostitution, the rest allow it. While we're at it, let's make a specific statement: Street walking prostitution is illegal, brothels are legal. There is a difference.

    The distinction being pornography is recorded media, thus a 1st Amendment freedom of speech issue, hence the legality. This was all hashed out based upon who won the presidency in 1976. Carter won and the 1st Amendment right to freedom of speech was upheld by the Court. I can't remember the name of the court case.

    Or someone who is with someone that won't consent to a certain activity and fantasizing about it during masturbation just doesn't satisfy their desire.

    Just make sure you have a camera and say you're paying her for a pornographic film. I'm unsure if licensure is needed.

    Once again this demonstrates that poor ol USA is way behind the rest of the developed world. You guys are so fucking backwards it is unbelievable.
    Prostitution has always existed and will always as long as pussy rules which it will do forever!

    Congress started to try and regulate morality. It created a black market which lead to extracurricular crimes and it's because of those extracurricular crimes that it remains illegal in most of the US. It's not so much about the act of paying for sex, it's everything else that surrounds it.

    I know, but it still makes zero sense to me. Basically: because it happens on camera it's legal. Which, by the way, does not apply to anything else (e. g. murder is luckily illegal both on and off camera). Anyway, with America, I suspect that hammering this issue won't do much good (so maybe I shouldn't :p). It's more likely to make both porn and prostitution illegal, than loosening up the laws on prostitution.

    Exactly. And some people actually use this loophole, according to a documentary I saw several years ago.

    You know I just thought of this loop hole a few weeks ago, now I see it actually does work. Very interesting don't really plan to pick up a call girl but still interesting information. I cam to think of this because my good friend just became a cabby and he was telling me a way to tell if a police officer is posing as a hooker. You ask how much it cost to do nude modeling. A hooker will nude model but a police officer will not. One of his fellow cabbies told him that. I thought that was pretty interesting too.

    All based on the Constitution. America by default is a prude nation. I like the freedoms we have that other countries don't, but I'd like to see more liberty in that regard.

    Yes. It has to do with entrapment (I have a CJ degree).

    I am sorry could you elaborate, is what I said true or false. What exactly is the definition of entrapment?

    It's illegal because of christian fundamentalists. They like to pretend their a moral compass for the usa, but really all they want to do is control people. A lot of bad decisions in this country has been morally legislated and upheld by them because the right wing marketeers tells christians that their religion is under attack if any legislation tries to treat those who don't think like christians fairly. Slavery, prohibition, anti-prostitution, homophobia are all rooted in antiquated superstitions. I'd have no problem with religions if they kept out of everybody else's business, but their book tells them that they are better than everyone else, so they think they are. Also, it's legal and regulated in Nevada.

    Jesus was NEVER interested in legislating morality, so anyone who acts self righteous about being a Christian is really off base scripturally speaking. And speaking of scripture...there is not a single verse in the Bible that says Christians are better than other people. In fact, it is quite the opposite...the Bible says no one is righteous....not a single human being who ever existed or will exist. If these so called Christians have given that impression, then they have not even begun to understand Jesus' mission, and they are telling lies. I could not say if the lies are deliberate or just spoken out of ignorance. I suppose it depends on the individual. The whole thing makes me sick since Jesus was about love and forgiveness and never about self righteousness nor fundamentalism.
