Why Is Prostitution Illegal?

So, in light of Elliot Spitzer's recent foibles, Slate wrote this article. A couple of years ago I read Callgirl: Confessions of an Ivy League Lady of Pleasure and I came away feeling very strongly that prostitution should be legalized. 

No one really seemed interested in debating the topic with me, probably because most of my peers aren't terribly scandalized by the thought of prostitution. 

So, this Slate article, "Why Is Prostitution Illegal" made me feel a bit like I was finally having a chat with someone about the issue. It takes a relatively even-handed look at the subject while remaining short and easily digested.
