The New York Times had an article on the decriminalization of prostitution in Berkley, CA. (I know, I'm shocked, too.) There is an initiative on the upcoming ballot that is trying to make prostitution a low-priority crime. Here is the full article. My favorite part:
Dr. Barbara Brents, a sociology professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, who studies the sex industry, disagreed. Prostitution, Dr. Brents said, is like any other business, driven by supply and demand. Dr. Brents said decriminalizing it was preferable to the legalization approach in Nevada. "If the laws are done right, decriminalization is a better alternative because women can be their own boss," she said. "In a perfect world, there is no reason women can't set up shop and run their own businesses the same way a therapist would."
Okay. That is one way to look at it. I figure at least these women are getting paid for sex - unlike most idiotic females today. I'm just trying to figure out what a logo would look like for Ruby's Rough & Tumble Therapy house.
