WATCH: John Stossel Discusses Who Owns Our Bodies
Article from Reason by John Stossel and Naomi Brockwell.
Do you have the right to rent your body to someone else?
In most of America, you don’t. But prostitution is legal in parts of Nevada.
No, says Christina Parreira, a PHD student at the University of Nevada who studies legal prostitution. She became a prostitute herself to gain access to the legal brothels and interview women there. She argues, “we don’t need protection, we’re consenting adult women. [Groups like Bindel’s] say that it’s oppression against women and we’re being exploited.
