The engaging societal expos "Six Thousand Truckers Can't be Wrong" traces the five thousand year history of prostitution from its original lofty status to its present state.In ancient Greece, prostitutes were temple priestesses. In the early United States, prostitutes were nurses, social workers, and community leaders. They also represented a semblance of culture and refinement in the rough towns of the Wild West.Today, 'streetwalkers" are victims of the most heinous and brutal forms of violence and discrimination. By examining the brothel type of prostitution in Nevada, where this profession has successfully and continuously operated legally for over one hundred fifty years, Dr. Tutty reveals the truth about prostitution as experienced by the women and men who practice the world's oldest profession.Dr. Tutty argues that the model of bordello prostitution in Nevada could be implemented around the country to: Lower the incidence of violent crimes against womenReduce the incidence of sexually transmitted disease and AIDSImprove the overall image of a community as a result of the lowered number of visible prostitutesIncrease tax-based revenue that could then be used to support school, road repair, or other community projects"Six Thousand Truckers Can't Be Wrong" represents an honest and compelling argument touting the potential benefits that can be achieved from this often-stigmatized practice.
