Yes.

Why is it illegal to sell what you can give away for free?

Why is it illegal unless it's being filmed?

You want to regulate it to protect the prostitutes and the clients from disease, exploitation, and violence? Also, because you want to tax it? Great. However, there's no reason it shouldn't be legal except because of the influence of people whose moral compass declares it to be a sin.

I’d be cool with the states making their own laws here. If enough people in the state want it, go nuts.

I can see the logic there, but the freedom of a man or woman to make their living how they see visit is vastly over-regulated already, and this is one more arena where people need more freedom, not arbitrary state laws.

If you can find anything in the Constitution that says it is a protected right, I'm with you.

Which leaves it to the states. Which I'm okay with.
