*  Street prostitution bill doesn't go far enough: NZ First | Otago Daily Times Online News
New Zealand First say a bill before the Local Government and Environment select committee doesn't go far enough to crack down on illegal street prostitution. NZ First's social policy spokeswoman Asenati Lole-Taylor has drafted a bill to give proposed prostitution law reform the "teeth" to deal with confrontational street soliciting. She said people living in parts of South Auckland and Christchurch were outraged by street prostitution but were reluctant to voice their concerns because of intimidation by prostitutes and their minders. The Manukau City Council (Regulation of Prostitution in Specified Places) Bill 2010 was originally introduced as ...

*  Prostitution in India - Wikipedia
The law is vague on prostitution itself.[25] The primary law dealing with the status of sex workers is the 1956 law referred to as The Immoral Traffic (Suppression) Act (SITA). According to this law, prostitutes can practise their trade privately but cannot legally solicit customers in public.[1] A BBC article, however, mentions that prostitution is illegal in India; the Indian law does not refer to the practice of selling one's own sexual service as "prostitution".[26] Clients can be punished for sexual activity in proximity to a public place. Organised prostitution ...

*  Drugs and prostitution - Wikipedia
Drugs and prostitution have been documented to have a direct correlation. In 1978, a study showed that use of drugs by prostitutes appeared to be an "Adaptation and commitment to a deviant social role". Drug use tended to predate prostitution among low level prostitutes with the connection most likely due to economic necessity. Low level prostitutes tended to use depressants, specifically heroin, as the drug of choice. High class prostitution showed that prostitution predates drug use with stimulants being the drug of choice. A 1994 study among South London prostitutes showed links between sexual behavior, severity of dependence, and use of heroin, alcohol but rarely, ...

*  Sex workers prefer their own STD screening - Redorbit
Sex workers said they prefer self-collection of samples for sexually transmitted infections, British researchers said. Researchers at the University of Westminster tested a simple and convenient method for screening female commercial sex workers for sexually transmitted infections without the need for them to attend clinics. Dr. Patrick Kimmitt said the women were given tampons that they could use to collect their own samples and post them to the laboratory. Kimmitt said despite their risk of exposure to sexually transmitted infections, female commercial sex workers are ...

What's the best way to curb prostitution in Oregon?.

*  Prostitution: Prevention and Reform in England 1860-1914 | Reviews in History
I come to Paula Bartley's book as someone who has for a number of years, been examining the extent and nature of prostitution in Ireland. Attitudes towards prostitutes and prostitution within Irish culture were in many ways similar to those that prevailed in England. They were also distinctly different. The difference becomes most obvious from the late nineteenth century when nationalist Ireland began to further differentiate its culture from that of England and when Catholicism as a social, ethical and moral force was supreme. It is also ...

... provides a critical re-examination of the growing body of literature on exiting and desistance. Moving beyond accounts which are mainly centred on men desisting from crime, this book focuses on female desistance, particularly in relation to prostitution and the exiting process. With interviews from over one hundred women involved in prostitution, the authors uniquely examine the exiting process considering not only the barriers and obstacles that women face when trying to leave prostitution, but also their individual strengths, capacities and aspirations. In ...

*  Market Design: Trafficking in Spain's legal prostitution market
This paper investigates the impact of legalized prostitution on human trafficking inflows. According to economic theory, there are two opposing effects of unknown magnitude. The scale effect of legalizing prostitution leads to an expansion of the prostitution market, increasing human trafficking, while the substitution effect reduces demand for trafficked women as legal prostitutes are favored over trafficked ones. Our empirical analysis for a cross-section of up to 150 countries shows that the scale effect dominates the substitution effect. On average, legalized prostitution increases human trafficking ...

Supporters of the prostitution industry want us to believe that women would be safe if men's purchase of women for sex is legalized. In the name of women's security, they are arguing in an Ontario court this week that male johns and pimps have a constitutional right to buy and sell women. They are claiming that prostitution is women's work and that legalizing it would advance women's liberty. Opposition is dismissed as based on "moral panic." A closer look at the violent reality of prostitution exposes the utter fallacy of these claims.. ...

It is argued[citation needed] that street prostitution is not victimless as it may damage the reputation and quality of life in the neighbourhood and diminish the value of property. Peter De Marneffe notes that many prostitutes have not finished school, affecting their ability to be able to have a career that they might have preferred. Therefore, prostitution also affects the application of their talent in other areas of the economy in which they can succeed.[citation needed] Maxwell (2000) ...

ON PROSTITUTION, ART AND PHILOSOPHY by Peter Morrell. On prostitution, art and philosophy. Sir,. As so often happens, BMJ raises a complex social issue and then runs away from it by offering little analysis of its fundamental aspects. In offering some reflections upon this topic, I hope to give firstly some comments about sex in general and prostitution in particular; second, to give some thoughts about the men who use prostitutes; third, to look at the various modes of condemning both and a few refutations.. With very few exceptions, sex ordinarily occurs between two people who know and like each other, who are attractive to each ...

During a hearing the following month, Superior Court Justice Joyce Wheeler decided that dismissal would not be an appropriate sanction because there was no evidence that prosecutors acted in bad faith..

The practice of prostitution or commercial sex is something that has existed or been identified in all societies throughout history.1 ,2 According to the report by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV-AIDS (UNAIDS),3 there are approximately 34 million people infected with HIV worldwide, and it emphasises that commercial sex ...

Norma Hotaling is telling 37 men more than they ever wanted to know about being a prostitute. About how she used needles out of the gutter to shoot heroin, picked up more diseases than she could keep track of, about how much she loathed her customers, wanting to kill one, any one, and even kept a butcher knife in her purse just in case she got the chance.. You, Ms. Hotaling says to a room full of squirming men, make this possible: the danger, disease, degradation and even death that follow prostitution like a bad odor. "How can anyone say it's a victimless crime?" she said.. The men are a disparate lot: young, old, ...

This week is all about the Olympics prostitutes. This is not, sadly, a new part of Team GB, but a massive crackdown on prostitution in advance of the London Olympics instead. Sex workers' pressure group x:talk has drawn attention to the fact that, in the past year, 80 brothels have been closed down in the Olympic borough of Newham, and that these "clean-up" initiatives are putting sex workers at risk - forced out of brothels and familiar soliciting areas and into new and more remote locations, away from the Games. Firstly, I am surprised ...

*  Crunchyroll - Forum - Cali Dems decriminalize child prostitution
The unintended but predictable consequence of how the real villains - pimps and other traffickers in human misery - will respond to this new law isn't difficult to foresee. Pimping and pandering will still be against the law whether it involves running adult women or young girls. But legalizing child prostitution will only incentivize the increased exploitation of underage girls. Immunity from arrest means law enforcement can't interfere with minors engaging in prostitution - which translates into bigger and better cash flow for the pimps. Simply put, more time on the street and less time in jail means more money for pimps, and more victims ...
