In an interview conducted by Diane Sawyer, a television journalist for ABC News, it was stated that you can find prostitution in the “expensive New York penthouses to Nevada's legal brothels to the tough streets outside Philadelphia and Reno” here in America. Many Americans believe that this is something we need to change; this is not just a belief for our own country, but for the world as a whole. According to online journalist Mark Liberator, “In Singapore, sex for money is open and commonplace.” Denmark is also a country of legal prostitution. As long as selling their body is not their only source of income, prostitution is not deemed illegal in the eyes of the law (Liberator). The Netherlands lean more towards the laws we have set, only allowing prostitutes to sell their bodies if they work in a legal brothel (Liberator). Here in the United States, we have legal brothels in 11 counties in Nevada (“Prostitution”); other than these counties, prostitution is illegal in the United States. Most of the prostitutes in our country, however, do not have the luxury of working in a safe, legal place. According to one call girl named Jessie in Sawyer’s interview, “We believe money buys happiness. And it doesn't. But it does for a while." Prostitution has a lot of allure, but at what cost? Many of the call girls in our country do not work as legal escorts in the eyes of the law. Unfortunately, a good majority of working girls in the prostitution business work the streets, handled by pimps and abused on a daily basis. They are drawn into this life by false hopes and dreams. Many girls start working the streets as a means to accrue money when they feel there is no other way to make a living. They are blinded by hopes of a better life and as soon as they find out what their life has become, it is too late to get out.

Throughout the ages, prostitutes have been looked down upon. They are said to bring down societies morals and degrading the future of our country. Even if this is true, it is not entirely the fault of the prostitutes that they are bringing down our society. Many women are working the street under the supervision of abusive pimps, not licensed of their own free will and working for themselves.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
