What use are anybody's morals to this discussion? What relevance are they?

Why must you morally approve of something someone does to treat them with dignity and respect and impartially protected by the law?

What the hell is it to you what someone else does with their body?

This discussion is all about morals. Your morals. You speaking down to everyone about the negative thoughts they have about whores.

Do you think it is immoral to have sex with people for money? Are you so afraid of your own moral values that you would publicly disown them lest they offend prostitutes?

Stigma is more an antonym of moral.

A vast amount of relationships and marriages are based on the fact that the woman married the man because he has 'money' (more money than the other suitors).
Other women marry the man because he is physically superior to the other suitors.
"She only married me for my money" many a man has said.
But he doesn't deny that he gets the sexual benefit in return.
Money maketh many a Man and that's what he uses to get his women.

50 Shades of Grey is considered 'popular' because he is 'wealthy', but if he was poor and trailer park trash - he would be seen as a deviant.

So paying for sex, where sometimes the woman gets more money than the man gets sex...
...well, it's just 50 shades shallower than other forms of relationship/interaction.

I tend to the word "ethical" but so often they are too close to distinguish. I'm not sure it makes a difference. I guess "moral" is just more a word owned by religion.

edit: I see ethics as the personal, morals seems more a tribal/goup thing.

Sure there's some overlap but i'm pretty reconciled with my interpretation of the distinctions between the two.

1/ No. Both parties must have the same 'morality'.

2/ Yes, they do have the stigma of immorality.

One guy I knew went to a 'lady of the night' while he was having a messy divorce.
He was not ready for a 'relationship' but wanted to feel loved.

That was not immoral.

Sex workers are really damaged goods both emotionally and physically.

The job makes them numb to life and all its emotions.
