    Dear Leo. You are a daydreamer. Do you think that there was no prostitution in Sri Lanka during the 2500 years? You see only the few good things of the past. What about the ongoing wars between the different kingdoms and rulers in Sri Lanka? In the past, as well as in modern times, only the rich were doing well.

    The so-called class representing liberal women who are asking for the right to purchase alcohol are too responsible for prevailing such situations.

    If a man wants to pay and get relief so what. Nothing wrong is happening between 2 consulting adults.

    Instead of harassing poor women like this why authorities don't consider legalizing prostitution which may definitely minimize family disputes and also raping and killing young girls.
