I would like to bring up this topic to you, my readers, today, partly because I was touched by the video I saw last week about Trafficking. Another reason, is that the country I am from, recently got a very bad name due to prostitution where this business is illegal.
However, trafficking and prostitution are two different subjects. I am here to talk about the latter.
-Who came up with this business?
Why there are people selling sex for money in this world? It was supposed to be a natural process within reproduction. Other than serving the purpose of reproduction, why would people want to take it out of the place it should be, then place it separately in a business?
Initially, sex was built upon physical purpose – reproduction of the race. Yet gradually, people find it more enjoyable when it happen upon the basics of emotional attachment. I think that’s why people came up with the idea of marriage – as an emotional bond between two persons.
If say, sex business is just keeping this process as physical as the way it is, why people are paying for it?
The fact that in our civil world today, human emotions have been taken into an important consideration before people actually do decide to carry out a ‘mating position’. Using currency to replace such emotion evaluation could be a solution among people who seek for efficiency when building relationships is such a time consuming and costly thing to do. Some people might enjoy the process of one person chasing after another, but I am sure the first person who ever said ‘you can pay me for it to save you such trouble’ would not enjoy relationships very much.
-Now comes to the question, who asked about the price in the first place?
I know it is the same as a chicken-egg question, but I would really like to know, the first person ever turn sex into a business, was he/she the prostitute, or the hustler? Oh wait, or do these two words meant the same thing?
It is after all a problem of willingness. There are girls, and maybe as well boys, who are willing to sell this ‘goods’. Accordingly, there are people would like to buy it.
-Motto of prostitutes: I saved thousands of woman from raping.
Maybe not all prostitutes thought highly about themselves like the statement above. But it does have its supporters, especially from this reporter based in Islamabad. Prostitution could offer outlet for sex maniacs to some stage, I wouldn’t argue with that, because when comes to profession, prostitutes are much more devoted than partners.
I am not saying this with any disrespect, if we were to say prostitution is a job, it is no doubt one of the toughest job in the world, it is very much so when this job itself would not bring much visible harm to individuals except for the ones selling it.
-Yet are prostitutes the only group of people getting hurt from this business?
Why prostitution could be illegal in some countries?
Other than deceases spreading among sex business and outwards, I surprisingly heard from a male friend of mine saying that ‘prostitutions should be banded as it cause family problems as well.’
Please excuse my perception to men, but I used to thought most men would support the idea of legalising prostitution, so that they can get it easier. But now my friend changed my thoughts about it. However, I believe the idea of ‘shouldn’t have had prostitutes’ must built upon high standard of morality, when human can be loyal to their partners, or on a wider scale, can commit to relationships.
If so, I really hope the loyal bit would improve among people at this point as we speak about it now.
-Anyway, not all human is noble.
Yes, this is my conclusion for the post today. The fundamental reason why prostitution exists and being a huge business is still because of some naughty thoughts or even nasty thoughts human have. In the case of China (finally come to China again!), what we should fight against might not necessary sex ‘industry’ itself, but the lust in people’s mind, especially those floating lust in the country’s system, if you know what I mean.
