    Sex tourists who pay for prostitutes abroad 'should face prosecution in UK'

    Sex tourists who pay for prostitutes abroad 'should face prosecution in UK'
    New report says paying for sex in the UK should be made illegal and advises offence is extended to payments abroad


    The proposals would see British men who visit prostitutes in Amsterdam’s notorious red-light district face charges in Britain EPA

    British men who use prostitutes while abroad on stag parties should be prosecuted in the UK under new laws that make paying for sex illegal, according to a report backed by a senior MP.

    Sex tourists and businessmen who pay for prostitutes on expense accounts would also be criminalised under the proposals in the Sex Buyer Law report published today.

    The report, commissioned for the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Prostitution by the campaigning group End Demand, says payment for sex in the UK should be made illegal and recommends Parliament “strongly considers” extending the offence to payments abroad.

    Although the APPG has yet to formally respond to the report, the idea already has the support of its chairman, Gavin Shuker, Labour MP for Luton South.

    “Speaking personally, I think the idea has merit for one simple reason: many people’s first experience of buying sex takes place abroad,” he said.

    Research published by the British Medical Journal in 2014 found that among the 11 per cent of men in Britain aged 16 to 74 who have paid for sex, the majority (63 per cent) reported buying sex outside of the UK, mainly in Europe.

    Diane Martin, one of the authors of the Sex Buyer Law report, herself a former prostitute, said that other research has shown men are more likely to buy sex where countries’ laws and culture encourage its purchase.

    “Stag parties visiting Amsterdam and men confronted with a ‘lunchtime deal’ on offer from a mega-brothel in Germany get the message that buying sex is normal,” she said.

    Paying for sex is currently legal in the UK, although some particular aspects surrounding prostitution – such as soliciting and kerb crawling – are illegal.

    Norway passed a ban on buying sex at home and abroad in 2008. The purchase of sex has also been illegal in Sweden since 1999, although the law there does not cover use of prostitutes overseas.

    The APPG has been calling for adoption of the “Nordic model”, which criminalises buying sex while decriminalising its sale, since 2014, when it published a report highlighting the scale of violence against women in the sex industry.

    The MPs then asked End Demand, which campaigns to end commercial sexual exploitation, to investigate further.

    The result – the Sex Buyer Law report, which was produced by an independent commission including Diane Martin and a former detective superintendent – is due to be launched in Parliament on Tuesday.

    It concluded that a law similar to the Nordic Model is needed here.

    The proposals will be contested, however. The Independent revealed earlier this month that a major survey of sex workers, submitted to the Home Affairs Committee after it announced its own investigation, found that nine out of 10 are against criminalising the buying of sex – and eight out of 10 fear it would impact on their safety.

    In 2013-14 there were more charges for loitering and soliciting than for the crimes of pimping, brothel-keeping, kerb-crawling and advertising prostitution combined, the End Demand report said.

    Ms Martin says prostitutes find it harder to leave the sex industry when they have these offences on their criminal record. “As things stand, people wanting to exit not only have to get over the psychological impact and stigma attached to what they’ve been doing, but they also have to worry about convictions for loitering or soliciting popping up on their record,” she said.

    “These are often people with histories of abuse, who have been criminalised while the people who exploited them have walked

    Exactly, it simply isn't feasible, just our half-baked politicians trying to make themselves look useful as usual.

    Prostitution has been going on for centuries and will continue with oor without the support of these puritans. The only way to exercise any kind of control is to legalise it and make it subject to tax. It is safer and more profitable in places where medical standards can be maintained and the women have the legal protection of the state. Fewer sexual offences, cut down on human trafficking, less STD's and more tax for the gubment. Everyone's a winner

    Unfortunately this reasoning has not been supported by practical experiences in states which have implemented such policies - legislative trends have been going in the other direction to make amends.
    It appears controlling human trafficking has been even more difficult after legalising.

    There was another thread a while back - where I said bar girls are not my bag/scene...

    I stand by that..

    However, I also stand for the rights of any adult, male/female to sell their body and for the punters to buy time with said prostitute...

    It's not the government's domain/perogative to impose their morals on you and I.

    This is encroaching on your personal freedoms, something that I would expect from the Junta of toyland, not the mighty British Empire.

    And yet it works perfectly well in an organised and wholesome democracy like Germany, and has done for many years.

    Erm, nope. It has been a controversial topic.

    Sorry don't have the time now to search for articles, but the registration scheme for tax, health insurance etc. for elf-employed sexworkers is now seen as having failed and it"s argued that bonded/pimped work has flourished in disguise and become more difficult to trace.

    If you are not breaking any law in the country you are visiting, they do not have a leg to stand on.

    All wind and piss.

    So what happens to the members in both houses that dress as women and snort cocaine of prostitutes bodies.
    Are they exempt because they claim no penetration was made during their happy hour.
    Feck they will make bestiality illegal next hows Betty going to make any money from her goats.
    Fascists dress in black and go around telling people what to do, whereas priests... more drink!

    I'm sure it is controversial, especially if you want to pay a bird to take a dump on your chest without a glass topped coffee table in between you.
    There are quirks and then there are perversions.

    Bottom line is, (pun intended) it is still far safer and better organised than the system where no laws exist.
