Hello John.

 

You certainly ask some interesting questions for a newcomer! :)

I'm still a bit of a newcomer myself so I think I shall just confine myself to asking: when you say "the future", what do you mean? Perhaps the law regarding prostitution in England and Wales will just stay as it is. Neither tougher nor lighter. It depends on whether someone in government decides to try to change things and whether they can get some traction.

 

Interesting news from Norway on the same topic:

I dont worry about the laws of prostitution in the UK, its how the local police force enforce it thats more of an issue to me.

 

As at the moment, we do seem to be seeing differant counties doing this differantly.

 

Look at the three ways of policing the problem, in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Glasgow, one has Zero tolerance, one has more than a few parlours licensed, and the other seems to allow escorts to work in the city centre.

Who knows, it may just stay the same, until proposals are put forward and the question is brought up in hallowed halls then none of us will have a clue. All I know is that by criminilising the guys the government could find that the first cases brought forward are from their own realms. London agencys would have years worth of blackmail fodder on half the government if they were that way inclined and aggrieved enough if they lose a fortune and have to close up shop. Its one thing keeping a secret when both have benefitted from the situation, its another when one side feels shat on by the other. Not saying I agree with that sort of thing but every person at the top who has regularly used or visited or had visits should think very carefully about how they vote should it ever come to that in the uk

It is very easy to get support for ani-sex legislation in the UK these days, "kinky porn" was banned without much resistance at all.

 

Imo if buying sex was banned, there'd be strong support for banning selling sex as well, which of course is logical

think about it, two commit a crime but only one is punisked, and the one who takes the money gets away scot-free!

That is also what the polls in Sweden has showed, banning selling rather than legalising buying is what gets the vote...

Women want to ban sale of sex

Two thirds of all women in Sweden would also prohibit the sale of sex.

The Sex Purchase Act is being reviewed, but Justice Minister Beatrice Ask said already no to an extension of the law.

 

The Swedish Sex Purchase Act introduced in 1999 forbids only the purchase of sex. 71 percent support the law.  Among women, the law has the support of 83 percent, while 63 percent of men think that the law is good.

 But according to a study by researcher Jari Kuosmanen at Gothenburg University, a majority of Swedes also ban the sale of sex.  Above all, the notion support among women, with 66 per cent want to criminalize

I personally believe it will become more difficult for agencies, as the Yard try and crack down on sale, coercion, and trafficking. But inde's will remain legal. There is a move towards weeding out bad agencies at the minute I am led to believe. This is from a reliable source, but I do not know how effective this operation is. The courts need to be convinced that there is coercion and as someone who works for myself and an agency from time to time, I can wholeheartedly say I am not coerced! Quite the contrary. x

In reality the Swedish law has been a disasterous failure and the Swedish authorities are in denial about this or so welded to it that they will lie about figures!

The fact that Swedish embassies including the one in London were a focus for protest on world anti violence to sex workers day (emphasising the recent murder of a prominent sex worker there and highlighting its anti sex worker laws) may eventually force the Swedish authorities to face reality and repeal!
