Rip Up Prostitution Law, Says Top Oslo Politician

10 posts in this topic

If nothing else it's pretty good timing with regard to the Scottish proposal, certainly good ammo to use against them since it provides evidence of the obvious i.e. that girls are going to move where the authorities can't see/protect them so their clients feel safer.

its good that such a high profile politician is willing to state the obvious, can you imagine the swedish politicians doing the same?

what a huge blow it must be to swedens moral supremacists to be told their law is a failure by a neighbouring country

Good to see a politico standing up to the radfems, female too -

Good to see some evidence that criminalising the punter makes things worse not better -

Disturbing, but predictable, that for WG's that the nice guys disappear, and they are left alone to deal with the nutters - Must make the radfems really happy to know that their sisters are endangered like this.

Sex buyer ban 'hasn't had desired effect

More and more prostitutes are plying their trade in Norway despite a 2009 law banning the purchase of sex, new figures show.

In 2011, the number of prostitutes working on the streets and behind closed doors rose by 28 percent compared to the previous year, according to the annual report from Pro Sentret, the country’s official help centre for prostitutes.

Oslo saw a 13-percent increase in street prostitution in the same period, newspaper Aftenposten reports. Earlier, in 2009, when the new law targeting sex buyers was first introduced, half of the capital’s streetwalkers disappeared.

”We are in contact with fewer prostitutes now than we were before the sex buyer ban in 2009, but with the increase from 2010 to 2011 it’s possible to say that the ban hasn’t had the desired effect,” said Bjørg Norli at Pro Sentret.

Around half the prostitutes working in the country are Norwegian, making them by far the largest group.

A quarter of the sex workers are Nigerian. According to Pro Sentret, many of the women in this group are victims of human trafficking.

Many of the remaining women come from Thailand, Romania and Bulgaria, with most aged 20-30.

The 2009 prostitution law prohibits the purchase but not the sale of sexual services, with legislators seeking to stymie the trade by targeting demand.

If they put as much energy into constructive thought as they do into their vitriolic hatred of men, how much easier our lives would be.

If they put as much energy into constructive thought as they do into their vitriolic hatred of men, how much easier our lives would be.

Some at least are clever women, they know exactly what would happen if what they ultimately want, the criminalisation of punters did occur, prostitution would continue but be less safe for both WGs and punters, they just dont care, shame on them.

Prostitution is impossible to stop in our society, only 24/7 monitoring could do that, as thats still a long way off in my view although the inevitable conclusion to where we are headed a sensible realistic debate on prostitution would be good. Blair did this with porn by taking a pragmatic decision that because of the net it couldnt be wiped out and despite his personal distaste he decided to bring in the R18 certificate and make some taxes out of the licensed only sex shops that sell it. This process since 2000/1 has worked well, the net significantly reducing demand for original DVDs though but it didnt cause the fabric of society to implode as Mary Whitehouse and her ilk were saying it would from the 1960s onward.

If only they took an equally pragmatic view on prostitution, legalise brothels ensuring WGs were legally able to work together if they so wished making them safer it would be such a step forward. Unfortunately some do believe it destroys society and they really dont like men having the option to pay for sex instead of getting married or cohabiting, having kids and ultimately being tied down with responsibilities and thus in their view pay their taxes like good boys and conform to what they dictate is the social norm. I hope to see my sons generation break this rubbish and live their lives as they decide not how a government and the establishment dictates, going on history its a forlorn hope i know. :)

Sex buyer law causes human trafficking: study

 

 

The 2009 law criminalizing the purchase of sexual services in Norway has led to prostitutes being more dependent on pimps and encourages human trafficking, according to a new research study.

 

Prior to the 2009 Sex Purchase Act, Norway had one of Europe's smallest and least organized markets for prostitution. Women came voluntarily, rented apartments and sold sex from there - without the interference from any pimp.

 
The introduction of the law has made this process more complicated, according to a report in the Stavanger Aftenblad daily.
 
"The women are very vulnerable towards the police and to a greater extent on the network and support that pimps can offer," said Guri Tyldum, a researcher at trades union backed Fafo to Aftenbladet.
 
Tyldum furthermore believes that the criminalization of prostitution has made it more attractive to traffickers.
 
"The criminalization intended to demonstrate that prostitution is not wanted in Norway. The risk is that the most dangerous and serious form of prostitution that remains," she said.
 
The Albertine Center in Stavanger has reported a steady increase in the number of prostitutes. The Pro Center in Oslo meanwhile reported significant variations.
 
The number of active prostitutes at times outnumbers the peak year of 2008, but sometimes there are fewer depending on how active the police are in attempting to tackle the problem. The number of active prostitutes tends to decline following a police operation.
 
Norway's Ministry of Justice has announced an evaluation of the sex purchase act.

Its one of those Emperor's New Clothes moments. If only all politicians would state the truth that's staring them in the face rather than deny it and try to gain what they think are political points by saying whatever the delusional moralists want to hear.
