Got into a discussion with a disabled gentleman who has stated that his disability prevents him from finding a romantic partner (knowing him, I believe it has more to do with his vanilla demeanor and awkward personality).
He argues that the illegality of prostitution is oppression of the disabled and socially marginalized.
Furthermore, he argues that it is an infringement of his rights, specifically because sex, he argues, is a need.
First, is there any good argument to establish sex as a "need" on an individual basis? Obviously, a species needs procreation to survive, but at the single individual level, is there anyone who can think of a good argument for sex as a need?
Secondly, is there a logical framework that can be used to justify a right based on the fact that it's a need?
