Wrong. It is legal in New Zealand and has been since 2003.

America is not New Zealand.  There is a historical streak of puritanism in American culture that New Zealand lacks.

As to the question at hand I would prefer as Nordic model here.  Decriminalizing prostitution and seeking to assist those in sex work to get out (with few exceptions people are driven to that lifestyle due to desperation) while continuing to prosecute pimps and johns.
Points highlighted for a reason. Likewise America isn't "everywhere else." There are other countries. Nordic model does sound perfect.

I might be trying to mind read here but I think Hintergrund's point is that if "X liberal-ish policy failed in San Francisco then it will fail elsewhere" was America specific.
