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.
