Combining data on police arrests from the Chicago Police Department and the results of the authors’ own survey, the study estimates that prostitutes are arrested only once in every 450 tricks, but only one in ten of these arrests will lead to a prison sentence. Johns are arrested even less frequently, with only one john arrested for every 1,200 tricks.

But perhaps more striking is the rate at which a police officer can extort free sex from a prostitute. Levitt and Venkatesh found that about one in 30 tricks performed by a prostitute is a freebie to the police in return for avoiding arrest. In other words, a prostitute is more likely to have sex with an on-duty police officer than to be arrested by one.

Sure unless they cock it up and get caught on camera doing it. Then they are fucked.

Prostitution should be completely legal anyway.

It's the oldest profession known and still the most taboo, irony.

You always hear those complaints about women earning 59 cents for every man's dollar. Well, legalize prostitution and the whole equation would reverse. Every woman in America would be driving a Mercedes and jetting to Ibiza for the summer.

Precisely why it shouldn't be legalized.

Gotta keep the White/Black/Yellow/whatthefuckever woman down.

Yes but then what would it do for marriage rates? Why buy the cow when you can pay for her to leave?

Only if the prostitute works for the IRS.

You take a girl out and buy her dinner and a movie, and if she blows you...she would not have done anything sexual without the dinner and movie. Some girls won't stay/enter in relationships if the financial situation isn't good. What's the difference? A lot of wives are full time prostitutes with one exclusive client...her husband.

This. If they don't have kids, the full timer's chosen "Profession" is called a "Homemaker". If they have kids, they use the term "Stay At Home Mommy."

Between that and marijuana legalization the tax money would mean a budget surplus.
