Prostitution has always been believed by the majority of people, including the ones who take part in it, to be extremely harmful. Let’s try to put our prejudices aside, and explore the nature of this belief, and its consequences on prostitution itself. Why is prostitution so often morally condemned?
In this Olio, we will explore different arguments that have been conveyed by philosophers both in favor of an abolitionist view, and in favor of a legalizing and/or decriminalizing view, while trying to closely explore our moral feelings about the commodification of sex.
*This Olio will take place in a Prospect Height's Living Room. Address will be sent upon RSVP*
