Banning prostitution is one of those social experiments that has never — so far as I know — worked very well no matter where it’s been tried. So, it seems to me the obvious solution is to turn prostitution into a performance art.
That’s to say, the only thing I’ve heard of that is crazier than turning prostitution into a fine art form is attempting to abolish it. We could begin by rounding up the prostitutes and sending them off to “courtesan academies” where they would learn 110 ways to pleasure their customers. Then, we could require the johns to be registered. Any johns that did not go along with the arts idea could have their registration revoked and thus be ineligible to engage a prostitute.
Best of all, the more artsy we can make prostitution, the fewer people will engage in it. After all, who supports the arts in this country?
