Should prostitution be legalised?

I dont know about the whole "prostitution" thing, as I'm not very sure about where the boundaries about paying for sex and prostitution lie. As far as I've gathered from the telly, prostitution is when you go out looking for sex etc, but people pay escorts for sex all the time, and that doesn't seem to be illegal.
And as far as I can see, escorting involves more posh clothes and dinners than prostitution, but other than that they are basically the same.......paying for sex.
So....should it be legalised? Well, people use sex all the time to get what they want, be it flashing a bit of bra in the office to get a promotion to Monica-Lewinsky style efforts.
But having sex for money appears to be illegal. But all it is is providing a service to others. Maybe it's the way people illicit their clients that's different from escorting.
Either way, it's going to happen whether you make it legal or not, so we may as well support it as a nation rather than out-law these people who chose to make sex their life. After all, in some way or another, we all do that. And we're all after a way of paying our way.
So long as it's safe in the health sense of the word, and in the "safe from attack" sense, I think that yes, sex for money should be legalised.
It'd provide a safety barrier for those involved, and some sort of health protection, let alone not making sex for money an "underground" activity. yes, it's rather a-moral, but people do it. So we should protect those that chose to make it their livelihoods.
