Does Torah allow prostitution?

No. Absolutely not. Here is what Torah states:
CLV Dt 23:18 You shall not bring the fee of a prostitute or the price of a cur into the house of Yahweh your Elohim for any vow offering, for they are an abhorrence to Yahweh your Elohim, indeed both of them. 
CLV Dt 23:17 There shall come to be neither a cult-prostitute from the daughters of Israel, nor shall there come to be a cult-prostitute from the sons of Israel. 
CLV Dt 22:20 Yet if this matter be true and no proof of virginity is found for the maiden, 
CLV Dt 22:21 then they will bring forth the maiden to the portal of her father's house, and the men of her city will stone her with stones so that she dies, for she committed decadence in Israel so as to prostitute herself while in her father's house. Thus you will eradicate the evil from among you.
As you can see, not only Torah prohibits, female prostitution, but it also prohibits male prostitution and promiscuous sexual behavior.

So men who engage in a lot of casual relationships are pretty much prostitutes under the Torah law and it is most certainly forbidden.

So not only prostitution is prohibited but also promiscuous sexual behavior. For example, a strip club or casual dating apps on smartphones would be prohibited under Torah law.

This is most certainly righteous and wise command because prostitution and promiscuous sexual behavior lead to serious social illnesses and vices.
