Prostitution. David’s friends are arranging his bachelor party.
They are making plans to go as a group to Las Vegas for one last weekend “out
with the boys.” One of David’s friends, Steven, suggests that they pool their
money and treat David to a night in one of Nevada’s legal brothels. Another
friend, Tom, is opposed to the idea. Tom says that prostitution is wrong. Tom
thinks prostitution exploits women. Tom also thinks that David’s fiancée,
Monica, would be hurt if she ever found out about it. But Steven argues that
prostitution is legal in Nevada and the women make good money doing what they
do. Steven also says that David has already told him that he wants to go to a
strip club as part of the bachelor party. “There’s not much difference between
a strip club and a brothel,” Steven says. Tom responds, “But one is fantasy and
the other is reality.” Steven shakes his head. “It’s all sex, man,” he adds.
Tom thinks about that for a moment. Then he says, “You know, maybe we shouldn’t
go to the strip club either. Monica wouldn’t like it.” Steven replies, “Well,
this is David’s party. And it all depends on what we tell Monica. Remember,
what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!”

Whose side are you on? Is there something wrong with
prostitution? Is there a difference between visiting a strip club and visiting
a prostitute? Would it make a difference if David and his friends were honest
with Monica about their plans?
