Decriminalization vs. Legalization of Prostitution

Posted by Christina Parreira on March 22, 2017

For any of you guys out there that haven’t tuned in to the “Brothel Cast” yet, this week is an excellent time to start.  That’s because I’m this week’s featured guest, discussing the debate over the decriminalization of prostitution versus its’ outright legalization.  Many of you may already know that I am in a doctorate program, and this subject is something that I have long studied in its’ various versions and models all around the world.  What’s the difference between those two philosophies, you ask?  Click here and I’ll explain the whole thing to you!

I should back up for a minute and tell you that The Brothel Cast is a weekly podcast (available in iTunes, Stitcher or at brothelcast.com ) that takes a behind the scenes look at many of Nevada’s legal brothels.  Each episode features some fun and sexy entertainment (like this week’s segment with Alien Cathouse madam Lydia Faithfull revealing her exciting and uniquely offbeat new hire), but the format also allows for the conversation to take a turn towards a deeper subject than couldn’t be accommodated on a shorter form medium.

So, even though it’s always fun to call in to a whacky morning zoo radio show and talk to a couple of guys about the latest positions that clients have twisted me into, it’s really refreshing to be able to break down a heavier, more important topic like this.

The Brothel Cast’s host Richard Hunter is firmly on the legalization side of the argument, so that made for some lively and thought provoking debate on the topic between him, Lydia and myself.  Give it a listen and post your own thoughts in the comments section below!  I would love to read them, and Richard might even share a few of them on a future Brothel Cast episode.

  1. I always laugh when I read these interviews by Dennis Hof. He sounds like a politician when he says, “Let’s get rid of sex trafficking by legalizing prostitution.” Legalization and regulation is designed to eliminate competition. This leaves Mr. Hof with a monopoly on legalized prostitution. Monopoly pricing and regulation makes the Nevada sex workers some of the most protected workers in the world! If politicians had any brains, they’d be aiming to break up this “Big Sex” monopoly. Fortunately, the puritans of America love their ban on prostitution, so the monopoly is safe.

  2. It is an outrage that such an incredibly beautiful, valuable and honorable profession was ever criminalized to begin with and kept illegal particularly when a significant portion of the people making and enforcing these insane laws see girls.
