Why have views on prostitution have changed over time?

whores weren't necessarily treated with the up most respect but it was viewed as something a society needed.

How have they changed? Prostitution is still legal and accepted in a lot of countries, and they're still not treated with the utmost respect.
>>
Increasing belief in the perfectability of society and man.
>>
Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

why does god have to be such a buzzkill?

puritans

As you've aged and remained a virgin you've become more sympathetic towards being able to purchase sex.

He didn't get any.
Also I don't get why people treat prostitution so negatively. It might not be the most glorious job, but when supply and demand meet the world is better place just because of succesfull transaction.

Because Western society is infatuated with condemning everything it loves most.

Morals change over the years.

Because onaholes and internet porn now exist

That's a good question, friend anon! I posted this in /m/ a while back, but I can repeat it here:

From what I've read of Allen M. Brandt's "No Magic Bullet: A Social History of the United States," while prostitution was never a "respected" profession, opposition to it really took off during the early 20th century. The rising Progressive social movement, with its emphasis on and belief in rationality as an ordering and organizing tool for effective social change, was both deeply concerned with venereal disease as a public health issue and very suspicious of male sexuality as chaotic and uncontrollable--perhaps an inheritance that came from the late Victorian period. Many Progressive doctors thus began to advocate for abstinence and virginity until marriage for both men and women, and prostitutes were naturally seen as deleterious to that goal.

The outbreak of World War I hastened these trends. Americans who saw themselves as fighting for democracy also wanted to ensure their boys were morally, so as to set good examples for the assumedly debauched Europeans they were "rescuing." Prostitution took a further blow, as the troops were encouraged to stay away from them both to ensure good moral character *and* to avoid venereal diseases, as by this point the military had (justifiably) begun to regard VDs as a serious strain on their effectiveness. All this resulted in the US at least in the illegalization of prostitution in nearly all the country during the early 20th century.

but that doesn't beat the real thing

It really just comes down to feminism. Feminists turned sex in to a commodity, whores are a threat to their monopoly on that commodity.
>>
In Britain people assume its because of Victorian moralists but the government generally just ignored them. It was only when the extent of venereal disease in the military was discovered after the Crimean war that legislation like the contagious diseases acts we're passed which began the process of making prostitution illegal.

Pornography is a replacement for most people.

It takes a lot less effort and money though.

Fuck off. Is this /m/? No, it's /his/

>>26307
I've had sex with prostitutes, used onaholes/fleshlights

And the verdict is sex of course is better.

But on a nice afternoon, with a few energy drinks, your favorite 1080p 60fps porn, an onahole is just as good.

Sorry ;_; I just mentioned that in case someone might say they'd heard the same quote elsewhere before.

Also let's add that there was a strong hygienist position from the late of 19th century.
Everything that picked upon was viewed as "infectious", "dirty", "viral", including nudity in art. That's why French art was rejected by American institutions up until the 1900s. It was private collectors that made French art famous in the US.
