More closures and court cases

18 posts in this topic

That is somewhat worrying, I wonder if soon the punters pictures will be appearing in the news after the dawn of the new legislations?

Oh and I hope the girls were better looking! :)

I hope the masseuses were better looking than the receptionists!

One could be catty and simply say that that is why they are only receptionists, but very few people look their best when arrested, dragged down to the station, and then produced at an early hour in the Magistrates' Court!

High chances that it was something else involved other than just being a "parlour"..

It turns out to be so in around 90% of these cases

Sadly that statement couldnt be further from the truth. Its simply that the more news worthy cases tend to involve something more, that is no reflection on the number of cases brought though.

One word describes the theme of this thread and that is pathetic. Prostitution is here today, was her yesterday and will be here tomorrow. It is about time this was realised and a mature approach was taken. In my view and in the view of probably the majority people in this country, prostitution should be brought into the mainstream of commerce and Brothels legalised, run in a clean efficient and law abiding way, just like any other business. But no, the consensus is; prostitution is dirty and a "gutter" trade so that's where it will be kept, dirty and in the shadows, burying heads in the sand and currently punishing those who try to provide a safe and clean working environment for the girls and their clients and soon punishment for the Punter. It is estimated that 1 in 10 men use prostitutes, that is approximately 3,000,000 men in the UK, are we going to end with 3,000,000 men with criminal records.

And more than enough to swing an election.

Assuming everyone else doesn't vote the other way :rolleyes:

(The arrogance of certain minorities who believe that they are the only 'bloc' in an election often comes unstuck in the USA.)

The present government could easily have gone down the Porn route which is now legal through the r18 certificate from licensed sex shops that in Soho cost around £30,000 for a licence per year. This major law change in 2000/01 has hardly caused a ripple of complaint. The BBFC who certificates these films are now incredibly liberal.

Unfortunately, logic is not an attribute HH and her ilk have, for them this is a crusade. Ultimately it will come down to the attitude of individual police forces to how vigorously they enforce IMO. There certainly are not the police resources at present to arrest 3,000,000 men just like that.

In my view targetted raids will intensify and closure orders issued more frequently, all with the added bonus from HHs point of view of scaring punters off, with Indies being the winners, as they will see an increase in business.

I think the men might but a large number of women still would be opposed. Imagine if brothels were legal. Every married women would be wondering if their man was cheating. The institute that was marriage would not survive.

Also some punters like me like this being 'grey' area and sick and tired of governments or any organisations giving green lights.

Remember not so long ago they actually prescribed smoking on the NHS!

Nothing special... Looks like they just kicked the doors in and arrested the madam. Unless they got the owner, the buisness will just relocate somewhere else.

These raids are usually the result of indescretions by either the girls or their punters which the local busybody has noticed, made a complaint, so the BiB have to be seen to do something.

One of the arguments used by sex workers is that they actually save marriages by giving married men an easier option on their marriage than a destructive relationship with a mistress.

Using divorce rates as a base to measure the success or otherwise of marriages, this 2007 survey shows that although Germany and the Netherlands do not have a divorce rate to write home about, in the UK where brothels are illegal, and in the USA where they're not legal apart from Nevada, the divorce rate is even higher. It's no surprise to see Sweden, home of the Swedish model as the country with the highest divorce rate at that time. Brothels had been legal in Germany since 2002, and for even longer in the Netherlands.

For sure countries where brothels are legal seem no worse to the marriage institution than some countries where brothels are illegal and frowned upon.

Attitudes that's why! Some women in the UK still believe in old-fashioned fidelity and romance.

That must be why my attempts at reviving the science of alchemy are coming under suspicious scrutiny by the missus.

I think not. Parlours are easy to locate and target as they are not usually covert - charges are easy to prove; great for police statistics! There are of course more since my last posting.
