The Guardian has discovered that a great many 'sex workers' have abandoned lower paid jobs to earn more money as prostitutes.

Who'd have thought?

Politically motivated bollocks. Do an AW search at max £120 and you will struggle to find a prossie born and bred in the UK; they're all EE imports. So therefore  presumably these NHS/social/care workers are all asking high end figures to fuck them?

It seems like 90% of the prossies (who aren't blatant bullshitters) I see are either care workers, nurses, beauticians or nannies/childminders.

It's clearly a logical step for some to go from cleaning someone else's shit for £7 an hour to polishing someone else's helmet for £100 an hour.

The Guardian hasn't "discovered" anything, it has reported findings from an "academic research, carried out by Leeds University and funded by the Wellcome Trust"  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Which part of the article gave you the impression that it's a "Politically motivated bollocks"?

I thought it was a good article. Especially since it ends with the University's recommendation that “...sex workers be allowed to work legally together. This is the main way they believe their safety will be enhanced. Societal attitudes need to change in order to minimise the stigma underpinning sex work and consequently reduce the harm that prejudice has on sex workers.

“A policy with decriminalisation as its focus ought to be recommended to improve relationships with police by removing threats of enforcement. Police resources should be channelled into dealing with exploitative situations in sex work.”


Isn't that what we, as punters, want too?

You're right...allowing girls to work safely in cooperatives, decriminalisation, legalisation, using Police resources to tackle coercive exploitation...that is a very sensible view that most punters would support.

Imagine a building, full of people like Ed Milliband, Peter Mandelson and Harriet Harman.

Voila... The Guardian.

90% of the ones I see are single mums. I need to up my game.

According to the research, more than half of sex workers hold university degrees. Is this evidence that the often cited idea that WG's are "thick" might not be true?

Now there's someone who's obviously completely unbiased...

i too would support this wholeheartedly however if legalization were to happen prices would go up due the the girls having to pay tax which alot of punters would not be happy about. i personally would not mind knowing the girls and us would be better for it

I worked there ages ago.

So for once, I know what I'm talking about.

I'd believe that. Most of the WG's I see are outcall only and were either still at Uni or had finished recently. These weren't WG's who do the whole I can speak 10 languages and read Dostoyevsky for fun, or airheads who do incalls all day, it just came up in bedroom break convo. It makes sense, doing some escorting on the side, means you don't have to have a Mcjob while at uni.

I've fucked a lot of female students, some off AW a hell of a lot off Craigslist. Who either answered my advert or had put an ad up themselves. I imagine a lot of them feel it's less final and risky than making a profile on AW.
