Perhaps - perhaps
, some say - prostitution should be legal, but let's do it the right way.
Ashley Lutz at Business Insider reports
on a new study
suggesting the best way to cut down on the downsides of prostitution - human trafficking and the accompanying physical abuse - would be to legalize and regulate the practice, and punish clients
of prostitutes, not prostitutes themselves. The claim is that by doing this, the dark underbelly of the illegal trade in women will be exposed, and johns will be penalized instead of prostitutes, who have little bargaining power.
