Question in black type - Answer from our Readers in blue type  

#1. Prostitution -- Should Las Vegas legalize it?  

One year ago this week we asked this same question.  Are the views and values of our readers changed?  Nevada does have legalized prostitution, but it is currently illegal in the country Las Vegas resides within.  Since this is the entertainment capital of the world, this weeks reader poll question is . . . Should Prostitution be legalized in Las Vegas?  Why or Why not?

*  I don't think legalized prostitution in Las Vegas is a wise move. There are enough attractions in our town to bring in visitors and their money. This activity would appeal to the more prurient individuals that might visit our fair town and would lead to other more illegal activities and gangs and dope, etc.  khufu

*  Legalize it. it's just another form of entertainment.   Wayne

*  Yes. prostitution is going to happen any way in a city like Las Vegas because people come there to let their hair down. make it legal and make it safer.  Bonnie Davis

*  I thought that they were wanting to make Las Vegas more family orientated. I don't think they should do this. It's bad enough that they are on the sidewalks out there passing out there little pamphlets, especially when you have your kids with you. Judy L

*  Yes! and it's about time!   Louis Lagarde

*  Don't really care if they legalize the act but my problem is with the pornography that's passed out on the streets every hour of every day. The advertising for strip joints and prostitution are more than many of us want to deal with. I don't think they need to push those brochures in our faces. It's very irritating to have to dodge these people. If someone wants to partake in that smut, they'll have no problem finding it. Keep it off the strip and sidewalks. They are trying to make Vegas a family vacation spot but the kids are subjected to the naked pictures all over the sidewalks. One would have to be blind not to see them everywhere.   Karen V Bujnoski

*  No it should not be legal, anywhere. It shows no morals and is just a disgusting trade. I know that it will always be around and I know that there are a lot of prostitutes that feel trapped. By legalizing such an act would be saying that there is nothing wrong with it. It is very disgraceful for any woman or man that has to sell there body. I am not a religious person, I don't want you to think that I am just a nut or something. I believe this because of our society and my morals.  Wendy

*  Who really cares? It might give a whole new meaning to the term "Playing the slots"!!!!!!!   COCOMM

*  Yes. Las Vegas has the reputation as Sin City. Let's keep it that way.  Millions of people come to Vegas from all over the world for fun. Sex is one of those vices that Vegas sells. Its a shame that Nevada doesn't extend the prostitution law to Las Vegas and Reno. At the same time that we want to make Vegas more family-friendly, we still want to keep it the enigma that it is. Otherwise, Vegas will loose its appeal and gamblers will stop coming. Its just as easy to go to the local Indian reservation to gamble. Let's keep Vegas special and keep its Sin City reputation.  Dan Daley/Towers Perrin
