But he need to say The case for maintaining the legal status of prostitution is overwhelming, and this should be extended to parlours/brothels.

In my (limited) experience of NZ, their attitude is quite adult. Most newspapers carry adverts for escorts quite openly and there seems to be very little of the sleazy approach which our tabloids like to foster.

What is it that these investigators or writers of theses are supposed to be unearthing about the world of prossying. I am sure that if the took a trip to Pompeii and read the graffiti, they would learn all there is in one day. Or better still a free ticket for a weekend in Soho. Job done save themselves 40k in student debts.

 

Anyway. Much of this which is produced seems to be appealing to the idea that punting and prossying can grow itself a new image. That by upping its 'legality' it also becomes more acceptable. So is this possible?

Plus I gather their advertising wording and imagery permissible makes Punternet look likes Mumsnet c.1950.

Yes it does. Very refreshing!! No sign of any Daily Wail tendencies.

So effectively, NZ laws on prossying were much the same as what we have now. But I can't see that changing our laws to theirs is actually going to be of any real benefit to most punters.

 

Lets face it. most punters usually are married. So they really shouldn't be punting in the first place. It makes no difference for a single punter. They are already free to punt anyway.

 

There would be no excuse on earth if someone is found in a 'legalised' parlour. OK with the law but not the prejudice and discrimination of the general public. Their attitudes won't change much.

 

Also I think a lot of wg would not wish to have it on their employment records that they worked as a prossy. They might never get benefits should they need them.

 

So I am not so sure it has been thought through, and the implications on a wider scale.
