The Purpose of this site is share information and encourage coalitions to
form all over America to present to city councils, legislatures and voters
the arguments showing why decriminalization of private adult prostitution
and related sex work is a benefit to the community and why there is no legitimate
reason for the current private prostitution laws.
This Coalition Cyber Center is only about changing the laws
While most all Western and many other countries have more reasonable laws
regarding sexual pleasure, in the U.S. we are faced with moralists imposing
their values on other people. If they can't reach us by knocking on our
doors and preaching, then they will instead enact laws to prevent us from
doing what they secretly wish they could. We oppose laws that violate our
freedom as consenting adults to in private share intimacy and pleasure.
It is long overdue for private consenting adult prostitution to be decriminalized
in the U.S. There are millions of sexworkers in the U.S. who enjoy their
profession and the largest risk is not bad clients, not STD's since most
insist on safe sex, but the law enforcement stings wasting resources on
morality crimes with no victims.
Prostitution fills a vital role in our society by addressing the sexual
and emotional needs of men and women, and by providing high paying employment
options to women and men who wish to provide sexual services.
People in a free society have the right to work in their chosen profession,
and to do with their own bodies as they so choose. Likewise, all citizens
have the right to engage in consensual adult sexual contact.
Criminalization of private adult prostitution is wrong. Almost all the rest
of the world realizes this, and the U.S. is one of the few countries were
private sexwork is illegal.
What countries have legal prostitution?
Most all except the U.S. - See link for details
