They conclude that there is a ontinuing attempt to regulate strip clubs but voters rejected it three times as of the time of this article. CNN did an article on Lawrence v. Texas in 2003. CNN pointed out that the ruling appeared to strike down most laws governing private sexual conduct, but laws governing marriage remained unaffected. They went on that the Supreme Court ruling establishes a benchmark in privacy that had not existed before and, according to Diane Haskel, the ruling, based on due process arguments rather than equal protection laws, would push out new areas in privacy. This is going to arve out protection for private sexual behavior,” Hassel said. “As long as it’s between consenting adults, this ruling would appear to cover CNN refreshed the case details between John Geddes and Tyron Garner of Houston and that their arrest violated the due process clause of the 14th Amendment. It is also hailed as a great leap into protection of privacy in one’s home. Andrew Cohen commented on Lawrence v. Texas, a CBS News legal analyst, and said that the Supreme Court “has created a broad new legal rationale for future challenges by gay rights activists…
This s a major ruling that will change a lot of other laws down the road. ” He said that “gays and others” may be able to use the ruling to challenge a wide range of laws on the basis ofa right to privacy.  In my review of court cases and legalized prostitution I cannot leave out the wonderful State of Nevada. Nevada is one of only two U. S. states that allow some legal prostitution; in most of its counties, brothels are legalized and heavily regulated. In Rhode Island, the act of sex for money is not illegal, but street solicitation and operation ofa brothel are.
However, as of July 2004, rostitution is illegal under state law in Clark County, where the City of Las Vegas sits, and under county or municipal law in Washoe County, where the City of Reno is located, Carson City, which is an independent city, and in Douglas County, and Lincoln County. Eureka County neither permits nor prohibits licensed brothels, and also has none. The other 11 Nevada counties permit licensed brothels in certain specified areas or cities. The precise licensing requirements vary by county.
License fees for brothels range from an annual $100,000 in Storey County to an annual $200 n Lander County. Licensed prostitutes must be at least 21 years old, except in Storey County and Lyon County (where the minimum age is 18).  Nevada law requires that registered brothel prostitutes be checked monthly for HIV and weekly for several sexually transmitted diseases; furthermore, condoms are mandatory for all oral sex and sexual intercourse. If a customer becomes infected with HIV after a prostitute has tested positive for the virus, the brothel owners can be held liable. 6] Nevada has laws against engaging in prostitution outside of licensed brothels, against ncouraging others to become prostitutes, and against living off the proceeds of a prostitute. For many years, Nevada brothels were restricted from advertising their overturned in 2007. Prostitution is typically shunned upon in society and should be regulated like any other Job in America today. If the participants consent to sex and it pays the bills, puts food on the table and pays the rent, then prostitution is no different at earning money than any other blue collar Job.
Legalizing prostitution would have healthy benefits and ensure safety for all those involved in the profession. For example, with the legalization of prostitution comes regulation. This means that prostitutes will be required to get medical checkups on a daily basis, which would help to decrease the spread of STD’s and other communicable diseases. As a result, the quality of life for prostitutes will improve as well as the environment for his or her clients.
