Against the motion:

Almost everyone would accept that criminal behaviour—rape, human trafficking, sexual exploitation—is closely associated with prostitution. But are these crimes intrinsic to prostitution itself, or are they the result of criminalising it? This debate will try to tease out answers to these questions, and look at whether prostitution is a victimless crime or just another word for sexual abuse; whether prostitution can really be a free choice of profession; and whether it is wrong to buy and sell sex.
This debate will happen online, and starts on September 6th 2010. You can sign up for email alerts to be notified when this debate begins.
