Legal sex

It seems far from feasibility in Afghanistan, for many reasons. But if it was possible, I would vote for legalization of prostitution in this country.

It appears it has raised many controversies in Germany between the for and against the legalization. The people who is in the pro side believe that legalization has protected many, whom otherwise would be exploited without anyone informed about it. The opponents of the legalization however believe that prostitution is basically against the human rights and dignity. They are mostly comprised of feminists, social activists, and religious groups. I see in both groups ethical bases. The first is based on a utilitarianistic ethics, while the second, a deontological one.

I don't have any access to stats and data on this field, but it's just a hypothesis: Sex and sexual desires are factual demands in an environment, called the "market". Right? So as long as they exist, so exists the supply side. No one is to blame. It's just the market and how it works, which is so humanistic (that I have faith in).

If you illegalize the supply of prostitution, it's a sure thing you can't de-exist the demand side. The demand continues to nurture itself in any possible way, including unprotected, the already illegal sex. where the illegal practitioners no one formally knows about, has no data about, nobody cars about, nobody protects them. If it is legalized, maybe it appears that it would foster prostitution, which is not a desirable thing (that I should've mentioned it earlier) but I doubt any apparent increase in the number of professionals in the field is the direct result of increases in demand, because of the legalization. There would be increases in the supply side but perhaps because there have been potential hidden demands for it, in advance.

Legalization of prostitution is no factor for demoralizing the society, not saying that prostitution itself is not. It protects people who would be unprotected otherwise.
