We need a new way to deal with this issue. Prostitution has been around for thousands of years and won't stop. Escorts are members of our society and deserve our protection. The common idea that women are trapped in this business isn't all ways true. Many are in it voluntarily and have families and pay taxes and have the same needs as anyone. I recently saw a documentary by an escort that allowed several escorts to tell their stories. It was moving and I learned much. The film "American Courtesans" has been shown at several film festivals including the ECU in Paris and Women's International in Miami. They have a page on IMDB and a website www.americancourtesans.com . It would be a good idea to see what they have to say and take it to heart.

Rather than finding ways to outlaw prostitution why not legalize and regulate it? This is a profession, one that has been around for thousands of years. Many think that sex workers are forced into the life (and some are) but many enter voluntarily. However they enter it they are entitled to the same rights and protections as all of us. Unfortunately they can't call police when they are robbed or beaten and too many are. To get a better picture of the varied ways women become sex workers there is a documentary made about escorts by an escort. "American Courtesans" has been in several film festivals including the ECU and Women's International and will be distributed soon. There is more information on IMDB and at www.americancourtesans.com
