I really am an expert, I just don't have time to go into details.
Leagalizing prostitution means legalizing pimping.

True experts require little time to display their expertise. Take me for example.

Yes, your analysis of the Sweden prostitution situation was quite brilliant. Even the link you posted supporting your argument had the countries police chief saying on record it was a complete failure.

An expert at work if I have ever seen it.

I think we are in 10 GOTO 10 here so perhaps we should just retire to our Phd Papers.

Curb walking? Is that British for street hooking? If so, it's legal in defined areas, as mentioned in this thread (though I can see where it'd be hard to wade through the children's pissing contest on the last page or two to find it).

The only other thing I could imagine you mean - sorry, I'm American - is loitering, and that doesn't quite seem enough to get your back up.

ok Mr expert....you remember the last time you tried Prohibition: stop supply so that you can curb the demand and even make it disappear? Well the same applies to prostitution, try to curb the ......demand.

no, supply creates demand. stop the supply, kill the demand
Theoretically, killing off the supply may eventually kill of the demand for alcoholic beverages. There is no biological imperative driving people to drink alcohol and those who have never drunk alcohol don't know what they are missing. This is NOT true with sex. Do you really think making prostitution illegal will dry up the demand for sex which fuels prostitution?

Re: Where can I learn about prostitution laws in Switzerland?

Are you comparing prostitutes to garbage? Also - Langstrasse is NOT an area where street walking is permitted.

your very human sensibility leads you to compare "prostitutes" to garbage. Not surprised after reading your post in another thread.
Don't forget that prostitutes are human beings and you are in no way superior to them.

Really garbage?? Why dont you run for the Geminde Rat - Municipality board, then you can make sure the garbage stays where it should, or else move.

Prositutes are humans, they were or are someone's daughter, and could be someone's mother. I cannot imagine that anybody would become a prositute because she is following her chldhood dream.

Sorry, but "old" woman?? Prostitute is not the first thing that would spring to my mind if I saw an elderly lady standing alone on a street corner. I think my first thought would be "lost" then "nursing home" but maybe I'm just weird.

Re: Where can I learn about prostitution laws in Switzerland?

Im SOORRRYYY didnt at all mean it like that, i just think that it should have its place, and meant certain things just dont fit in in certain areas !

I would never judge a prostitute because none of us know where what how when her circumstances are..

But i do think its not something i necessarily prefer outside my apartment block
every night, and i think i just about would notice the dif. between an elderly lady lost at 10 pm on the road corner and a women dressed in fish nets wearing near to nothing roaming round the corner for hours approaching every male walking by and and and...
