Dear Annie. What is your view on paying for prostitutes? Can it ever be done with integrity and non-exploitatively?

That's a loaded question. I am of two minds here. One the one hand its the oldest profession because men need/want a lot more sex than tired moms do, but of course, it is often highly exploitive and denigrating, and often there is coercion rather than choice. I think in a culture where the trade is legal and regulated, it is a better trade than in cultures where it is illegal and on the streets. In this context, I have far less objection. However, that isn't the context for most states, and it totally side steps the Christian point of view, which is pretty universally negative. Your question only asked if a person could be paid for sex in a non-exploitive way with integrity. I think it can.

That's just my opinion,
