San Francisco Topic: Prostitution
There have been many calls for legalizing or decriminalizing prostitution in the city. It is easy to notice in some neighborhoods that people are offering sexual services. The weekly newspapers are filled with "escort" services - yet prostitution remains illegal. Perhaps this has something to do with the money that the city makes off of prostitutes and "johns" that it is able to issue citations to.
