Reader feedback: Sad and degrading

Re: Oldest profession is risky business in Slovakia By Lukáš Fila April 28 - May 4, Vol 9, No 16

On a visit to Slovakia I saw many prostitutes standing at the highway exit ramps to Vienna and Budapest. It was sad and degrading for Slovakia. The girls did not look like prostitutes, they looked like students. Some of them looked extremely young.

It would be more acceptable if the authorities designated certain areas for such activities away from general public. It is well-known fact that countries with regulated prostitution have no sex crimes and less sexually transmitted diseases.
