PROSTITUTIONS

When did prostitution begin? In one form or another,  prostitution has been around a long time.  “Harlots”  are mentioned  forty-four times in the Bible, “whores”  and  “whoremongers”  are featured fifty-three  times, and  “committing whoredoms”  is mentioned eight times.  

Obviously love for money was  well established by 2000 B.C. frigidity from its origin until relatively recently, prostitution has been a more or less respectable  profession.

How can that be? The ancient  Hebrews were the first to condemn  whores.  Most of their  complaints were directed   against Hebrew  women  who took up the trade, however. 

Foreign  prostitutes  were relatively  well tolerated among them.  The New Testament began  where the Old Testament left off and commenced a religious  campaign against prostitution which took  on all the attributes of a Crusade and which continues with  its original   fervour even  today in certain countries  (including  the United States).

Things were not always  that way.   Among  the ancient Chinese, Greeks, Armenians, Syrians, and Cypriots (to name only a few), prostitution was considered a noble  called and played  a role in many religious  ceremonies. 

Nearly every temple had  its official  prostitutes; sexual intercourse  with them (for a small fee)  was considered an acceptable  form of worship.  Many of these  ladies  were   volunteers   in the sense that they only worked for a year  or so, donating all the proceeds of their labours to the  church. 

This was  considered the equivalent of modern  missionary work and brought  with it great  religious  reward.  When their time was up, the  part-time prostitutes  returned  home to their   husbands and families  with greatly  enhanced prestige.

Among certain groups, sacred prostitution has a  more  practical twist.   The early  Armenians and Cypriots encouraged  their  daughters  to earn their dowries by working   as a freelance  prostitutes  before marriage.

Even though  the Middle Ages  prostitution was accepted as a way of  life and the more elegant  whores moved freely  in upper-class society.  Under the euphemism of courtesans, they   consorted  with royalty.  Among the lower  classes, the prostitute’s  life was   harder, but not  necessarily  unrespectable.

What about sex in modern times? Prostitution has remained a socially acceptable  if somewhat expedient way of earning a living in many parts of the world  right up to the present time.  after the Communists took control in Eastern Europe following World War II, prostitution was outlawed. 

Suppression of ladies of the evening  was instituted  subsequently in France, Italy, Belgium, and Japan.  Moreover, whore is still not  a nasty word in many parts of the world. 

Most of Asia   recognizes legal prostitution as do large segments of the Arab world.  Latin  America, with certain exceptions,  allows  unrestricted prostitution.  Mexico has considered prostitutes  legal for a long time.

Isn’t prostitution a terrible thing? A lot of people  seem to  think so, but the facts don’t necessarily bear out their emotions.  The major  objections to professional  prostitution usually fall into the following categories:

1.  Prostitution spreads  venereal disease.
2.  Prostitution increase sex crimes.
3.  Prostitution corrupts   you8ng people.
4.  Prostitution is morally degrading.

Based on the facts available, none  of these  criticisms seem to  hold up.  In the United States, which suppresses prostitution as vigorously as any country in the  world, the rate of  venereal disease hits new highs every week.  

In Mexico, the incidence of  VD is much lower  per capita in spite of –or perhaps because of – legal  prostitution sexual perversion. Contrary  to popular folklore, prostitutes  are not nearly  the source of venereal disease they are supposed to be.
