    What exactly is it about premarital sex, or sex outside a committed relationship, that makes it immoral?

    ah but what exactly is a marriage? what constitutes the union of a man and woman? different societies have very different ceremonies, as has been the case in the past. were adam and eve married? or is marriage simply another invention of organised religion to have further control over their followers?

    My impression is that you are hungup on the word "happiness." I fail to see how men cheating on their wives with prostitutes has much of anything to do with happiness. I fail to see how the spread do HIV and other venerial diseases brings happiness. I fail to see how women who are imported under false pratenses and held in near slavery for prostitution brings happiness. Also, I hate to see pimps swager around in brutal control over their money earning women.

    To me, having to go to a prostitute is the bottom of humiliation and something I have never done. If a man has to pay for a trick, he is to be pittied! This is the path for the Betta males and deviates!
    No wonder none of them are eager to admit their desperation. I guess it is like having to pay to get into the toilet in some gas stations!

    As they say, LOVE IS THE ANSWER!

    I suppose one could judge ones motives as to thier specific beliefs or principals, however, I will not judge ones motives or beliefs by thier actions. There is a price to pay for any decision and /or action taken in life. If it is by choice then so be it. Freedom of choice is a great privlage.

    Really, I have a lot more respect for the woman who said "Real paid ho! Real paid ho!" I don't like her values, but she sticks to them and sticks to them hard. Oh, man, I'm going to catch so much flak for that. To tell you the truth, I can't say that I approve of prostitution as a profession. It is very unclean, and it doesn't really serve anything productive. I'm not sure if I'd outlaw it unless it posed a severe health hazard to innocents, but I do very much turn my nose up at it. There are more honorable lines of work.

    What if it wasnt really ment for control.....maybe just one man loved a woman so much that he wanted her to have a title with him. not just i the bond of love but a legal bond that would garuntee that they would be together forever.

    thats logical to me.

    I agree. I love my fiance a lot and I want to be united with him in the eyes of God and in the eyes of society.

    :D You don't hold back anything. I respect your style. What you said is true though. If a man kind can't find a woman to love him and give him sex, then he is forced to find a woman who shares her goodies with hundreds of other men. :p

    Sex out of love is the way that sex was meant to be. A spiritual union between man and woman.

    In it's most basic form, marriage is instinctual for humans. That is, humans naturally form pair bonds. How those pair bonds are recognized by society varies depending on the society. So, while it is absurd to suggest that marriage in it's most basic form is an invention of religion, it is certainly an invention of religion that marriages need to be recognized by religions to be valid.

    My impression is you're hung up on putting words in my mouth.

    Perhaps they aren't eager to admit their desperation because of the way people will react?!? For example instead of calling them names like Betta males and deviates, perhaps we should call them people. I don't approve of prostitution but I am also not about to judge those in that lifestyle. I see this as the same thing as an alchoholic/drug addict/gambler. We need to have empathy - not pity for those in our society who are in such obvious pain. There are too many people that hide behind their own ego and need to use derogatory words to insult others in order to make them feel superior about their own lives.

    Forgive me, I haven't read through the entire 8 pages of this thread, I just wanted to pose a question before going into the rest of the thread.

    What I'd like to know is, why the need to add in hypothetical scenarios in order to justify Prostitution being Moral?

    Why is it IMmoral to begin with? What makes it immoral? Who are we to call anything anyone else does immoral?

    "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." ;)

    Morality is subject to personal opinion, it is not set in stone. What is immoral to one, may be perfectly moral to me.
