so many times i have read and heard people recommending that india legalise prostitution in order to reduce no. of rape incidents.but i have my own reservations on this, due to reasons as listed under:
if you legalise prostitution in india,married men will go to prostitutes and leave their wife,and maybe sick child,old parent etc at home.this will cause more domestic disputes,more cases of domestic violence being reported in courts by these ignored women,and so on.
now you may say that dissatisfied men go to prostitutes and so their wives must satisfy them so that they dont go elsewhere.but i know that many men want variety in life,even if their wife is pleasing them daily.
the way many men destroy their marriages by overspending on alcohol,they may now overspend enough on prostitutes and make their marriages even more hellish.
so how does this solution really help anyone,esp. the legally wedded wives of such men?
secondly,incidences of STDs (s*xually transmitted diseases) will increase amongst such men who take these services..as such private hospitals are damn costly for the common man and govt. hospitals are not so well equipped in india to handle increased cases of STDs which may arise.
so is that the real solution to reduce rape cases,that you encourage married men especially to do immoral acts so that they dont go around raping others?
