Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
" But the point is that the policy choice of full legalisation subsidizes the 'industry'."

A contested point. The counter position is that legality strengthens the position of the prostitutes, including the possibility for victims of traficking to free themselves. All "German experience" that I know of was only short term, did not include work permits, and was stopped because some xenophobes fantasised that women invent accusations in order to get residence and work permits. Short term safety is no safety at all. Do you know of any other experience?
