    Desperate British students "turning to prostitution"

    Desperate British students "turning to prostitution"



    By Michael Holden
    LONDON | Wed Dec 14, 2011 5:35pm IST

    (Reuters) - Desperate British students, faced with rising costs on the back of government austerity measures, are turning to prostitution, gambling and other dangerous pursuits to fund their studies, support workers and student leaders said on Wednesday.

    The English Collective of Prostitutes, a welfare body for sex workers, said it estimated the number of people approaching it for help had doubled in the last year as students struggled to make ends meet.

    "(The government) know the cuts and the austerity programmes and the removing of grants, they know when they remove those resources they know it drives women further into poverty," Sarah Walker from the ECP told Reuters.

    "The way that women survive poverty is often through sex work. The government knows that and they don't seem to care frankly."

    Young people have been the hardest hit by economic slowdown with youth unemployment now accounting for 1.03 million of the 2.64 unemployed, the highest level since 1992.

    Last year, the government said it would scrap the Educational Maintenance Allowance, a grant to older teenage schoolchildren to help them stay in education, and allow university tuition fees to treble to up to 9,000 pounds a year from 2012.

    With part-time jobs scarce and the cost of living being squeezed with rising prices, the National Union of Students said young people were taking desperate and dangerous measures to pay for their education.

    DANGEROUS WORK

    "In some cases that's sex work, but we're also hearing about clinical trials, gambling ... dangerous work where there's very little, if any kind of employment rights," said Estelle Hart, the NUS's national women's officer.

    "You often hear it's very easy to get a bar job. Well it's not easy to get a bar job in this economic climate, it's not easy to get any job."

    A study by researchers at a London university published last year found 16 percent of students were willing to engage in sex work to pay for their education and 11 percent would work for escort agencies.

    Hart said a recent study by Leeds University in northern England revealed 25 percent of strippers and lap dancers were students. She said the government had a duty to investigate what effect its changes and cuts to education budgets were having.

    The prostitutes collective said women of all ages were affected and they were working in brothels, as strippers, in lap dancing clubs, and on sex phone lines.

    "It's right across the sex industry. With sex work, you can work for maybe one evening a week and make enough money to cover all your expenses," Walker said.

    "It's younger students who are just starting out in university and also women who are going back trying to get a degree or increase their skills."

    She said the scrapping of the EMA allowance had badly hit some mothers.

    "When that money is cut, it's the mother who often has to make up for it," she said. "That is something that is driving women into sex work."

    The government said it was providing 180 million pounds a year for the most vulnerable teenagers and that no student had to pay up front for their studies.

    "Our reforms will make the system even fairer, with more financial support and lower monthly repayments once you are in well-paid work," said a spokesman for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

    Last year, demonstrations in London against the government plans to increase tuition fees descended into violence and rioting. In the worst trouble the car of heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles and his wife was attacked by protesters.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    they are worried that young nubile students will be taking income away from the ugly disease ridden skanks that walk the streets of leeds and birmingham.

    Part time whoring makes sense for a student. Flexible hours, good pay.

    There used to be a good site called takemetodinner.com, which seems to have lost it now. Good place to "date" students. Basically you paid an amount to take them to dinner and most of the time agreed a deal for the night.

    Really convenient way to get laid in London if staying in a hotel and help a young lady with their studies at the same time.

    the selflessness, empathy and generosity you show are a shining example to others, others who when paying prostitutes for the hire of their bodies think only of their own selfish needs and depraved lusts.

    sex workers are paid too much, this should help bring the price down.

    They may as well use it before they lose it - sadly most have already lost by the time they go to university.

    Average hourly pay for a UK prostitute doing incalls is £120 per hour.

    Average hourly pay for a UK barworker is £6 per hour.

    And there are no barworker jobs!

    These students either rack up £40k of debts after a 3 year degree ( 9k a year tuition fees alone) or they lie back of think of England.

    Most likely it was a shortage of rentboys that inspired the conservatives to introduce the university fees.

    For Catholic priests when there is a shortage of choirboys in the church.

    Another consequence of flooding Britain with immigrants -
    now students cannot find part- time work .



    Remember an immigrant is for life , not just for Christmas.

    Men don't have this option. The funny thing is, allot of women just stop going to school and they stay in the whoring business. It's better money.

    Do you think they are virgins ? Or is there some dignity in these girls getting banged for free, drunk at a party ?
