In case you haven't noticed we just posted a article about the prostitution scene in Las Vegas titled FUN AND FRUSTRATION IN LAS VEGAS -- A BUYERS GUIDE TO SEX IN SIN CITY. The article is by a new ghost writer with assistance from me.

A fair bit of work went into it and breaks into a topic we normally don't cover much here. I would be interested in comments, questions, and corrections, as always.

The question for the poll is what do you think about it in general? Multiple votes allowed. Thank you.

You did not write about one of the biggest advantages of internet sites such as backpage
Just itself, very untrustworthy
but
There are sites with multiple reviews of individuals letting you exclude the fakes and determine the real cream of the crop
Kind of a consumer reports :-)

I voted that I prefer the other gender. Surely it goes both ways? Not that I know anything about finding one.

I think prostitution should be legal there, and I don't really understand why it isn't.

The article was interesting, but I don't have any interest in actually hiring a sex worker.

Lots of people view gambling as moral and prostitution as immoral.

Whereas seeing the downside of both, I don't see why prostitution is considered the lessor.

Pretending either one is always a good thing for everyone is just baloney. Or likewise, bad.

Thanks. The article did say that anybody could post a free ad in Craigslist or Backpage and that going that route is a gamble.

I've seen escort review sites just surfing around but don't know that much about them.

I've always felt it's better for "vices" to be legalized so they can be regulated & taxed. People are going to gamble, exchange sex for money, or do drugs whether it's legal or not. Legalizing those things can make them safer.

I've said this lots of times but I believe if two consenting adults make a bet/deal/trade, then nobody should infringe on that right. I do believe in a proper amount of regulation to ensure safety and fairness.
