Speaking of brothels, I saw that the News Shopper was reporting about the off the off-street sex industry in our borough.
Here’s one of the authors of the report writing in the Guardian:
Most men do not pay for sex. Those who do need educating about the harm that prostitution causes to women and society in general. Some will only stop if they are frightened of the consequences, such as one charmer who told me, “If she isn’t crying but says no, I keep on. I only stop if she is really crying.”
Others are able to justify to themselves what they do, simply because it is not against the law. When I asked why he pays for sex, one regular punter told me: “It’s like going for a drink. You are not doing anything illegal.” At the moment, he is right. Let’s hope the government has the courage to change that.
Let’s hope so.
