Inconsistency in the Law: Prostitution

In Florida, the Legislature has passed laws so that firing a missile into a building is lesser degree of felony than the theft of $1 (one dollar) from someone over 65 years old.  Strange, but true.

I snagged this from Glenn Greenwald.
[O]ne of the following, but not the other, is illegal:
(a) Two people have sex, one of them gets paid for it;
(b) Two (or more) people have sex, all of them get paid for it, and it is videotaped and sold to third parties as a commodity.
