The Lords presumably already have all the prossie/pimp  numbers they need :D

I love how he said the majority are homeless and drug addicted. Just plucking made up facts from his head to suit his cause  :thumbsup:
Banning reason: Ignored admin warning after temporary banning and signed up to malicious troll anti-UKP site

AW and other sites already have the caveat "Any money paid to the adult escorts listed on this website is for their time and companionship only. Whatever else that may occur if and when contact is made is the choice of consenting adults."

So, big fuss about nothing I think!

Funny how reference is made to dehumanizing women.  Suppose this leaves the House of Lords to continue along with their rent boys.  And what a bunch of suspect looking individuals they are

It's obvious you don't think that much, otherwise you' know the caveat you quote is for the US market, and some dumb pro$$ies & pimps use it here, even though it's not relevant  :music:

That caveat is bullshit and would never hold up in a court of law.      :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

I did realise that - was just making the point that if directly advertising adult services becomes illegal then we'd end up in the same situation as them over the pond.
To be fair when I'm on here I'm mostly "thinking" with the smaller head so you're probably right in that respect!
How well does that caveat hold up in the US I wonder...

Almost as insidious as the Nordic model!  :dash:

Yet again the news article has a picture of a street walker and a car despite that being a tiny minority part of the scene and generally frowned upon by punters.

The reality is the vast majority of punters use the internet these days using sites like Adultwork or similar and the generally glossy web page of an Agency. Phone box carding is a dying way of advertising and frankly I haven't bothered looking at the back of a paper in a long time. The websites are also act as a form of self regulation as it allows punters and sex workers to flag up problems like unsafe practices, scammers, dangerous punters and those who might be in trouble.

The vast majority of punters do not want to see drug addicts, pimped or trafficked woman. Contrary to popular belief amongst many people we don't see the woman we punt as dehumanised objects. They are people we want to have an intimate experience with and pay for it. Now don't get me wrong if a woman wants to travel from another country for economic reasons and enter the sex industry I have no issue with that as long as it was of her own free will.

Just like the Nordic model all this does is force sex workers into far more unsafe practices and scares away the better punters.

Legalisation and regulation is the best model.

The bill as introduced  is here

www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/lbill/2015-2016/0015/16015.pdf


"A person who publishes or causes to be published or distributes or causes to
be distributed an advertisement which advertises a brothel or the services of a
prostitute or any premises or service in terms, circumstances or manner which
give rise to the reasonable inference that the premises is a brothel or that the
service is one of prostitution shall be guilty of an offence."

It covers the internets in Section 5, I don't see how they can enforce it.

Still got past a second reading in the Lords.
Banning reason: Accidentally logs into banned accounts (asianjay5inch, smallindianguy32)

it'll never happen,  they can read these exploratory bills in parliament till the cows come home then it will be watered down.  we all get the street walkers and the girls co-erced into it and none of us agree with this and would avoid this (most of us anyway, i would hope!).

As for the independents working from their homes and doing it because they want to,  that will not stop.  sounds like political scare mongering to score some points that will be forgotten about soon enough.

The Lords urge the law to be changed to ban advertising

http://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/news/crime/law-urged-to-ban-prostitutes-from-advertising-their-services-1-7534093

Is it mainly papers they want to ban because they been trying it for a while and most girls don't pay for paper ads anymore as they don't work anymore since AW plus very expensive compared to online etc.
Banning reason: North East shit stirrer who contributes nothing

Will just move offshore, there will still be advertising just not on UK based hosts.

No idea what the government has against UK technology companies

It's a private member's bill introduced in the House of Lords.....with the fun and games that'll go on in the Commons with sorting out the Tax Credit fiasco and EU referendum debacle there's an odds on chance it will never be given time for it's three readings in the Commons.
