Corrupt public officials and organised crime syndicates are behind widespread human trafficking of women being forced into prostitution. A small minority of high class escorts in a first world country do not represent the majority of poor women from third world countries that have been exploited and trafficked into slavery. There are so many African, Latin, Eastern European and Asian women that have been forced into prostitution. Prostitution is not a victimless crime and people need to stop believing the lies pushed by Hollywood and the media. Prostitution should remain illegal just like illegal drugs should be kept illegal.
You're looking at this in too much of a black-and-white, one-size-fits-all mentality. Manual laborers in third world countries often work under inhumane conditions, but that doesn't mean everyone in the world who does manual labor is being treated inhumanely.
Keeping prostitution illegal serves no purpose as it does not prevent it from happening, it simply makes it more dangerous. Prohibiting it simply does not work.
