19. I don't think what would happen is predictable if the stigma for sex work was to vanish.

It's possible with the low entry requirements that it would be like a fast food worker job with similar pay and benefits. Clearly some of the reason that people do sex work now is due to decent money earned quickly - not sure how appealing the line of work would be without the pay.

"For women whose station in life depends on securing the best marriage outcome possible" - this statement of yours, I don't know what it means.

But further down, are you saying men don't want love and relationships and family?
