yes, it was highly sarcastic,

yes, it was highly sarcastic, and my attempt at humor.

but seriously, men get involved in relationships for sex--usually; and women get into relationships for the bonding and social capital. by having prostitution legalized, a woman can't threaten to withhold sex from her partner as a means of coercion, therefore she loses her power. however, she is now able to receive money for having sex, but this is what was already happening before, in a roundabout way. but now the man has more power in the relationship.
