Quote by Julie Burchill

Prostitution is the supreme triumph of capitalism. Worst of all, prostitution reinforces all the old dumb clich?s about women's sexuality; that they are not built to enjoy sex and are little more than walking masturbation aids, things to be DONE TO, things so sensually null and void that they have to be paid to indulge in fornication, that women can be had, bought, as often as not sold from one man to another.

This quote criticizes prostitution as a manifestation of capitalism, arguing it perpetuates demeaning stereotypes about women's sexuality. It suggests that the existence of prostitution reflects a belief that women are unable to enjoy sex and are reduced to mere objects to fulfill men's desires.

The quote implies that once gender equality is achieved, prostitution should be eliminated and those involved should be punished for their perceived collaboration in the oppression of women.
