Where does the current concept that adult services should be banned, originate?

37 posts in this topic

In the old days puritannical views were based on religous morals. These days we are a multi-cultural/religion society.

When virtually everything else we enjoy is valued in financial terms, why should the company and pleasure of an attractive woman, who freely consents be banned?

Firstly, when someone who is married or in a relationship, spends time and money on another women for the joy of sex, it can lead to the other lady becoming upset!.

Secondly, when you mention prostitute's, the thought of street walkers come into some folks mind, and the problems that arise when you have a few street walkers in your area, that bring all sorts of problems to your street, and the quietness of your road is not as peacefull as it should be.

I suspect it's for the same motive the original Puritans objected to bear-baiting: not because it gave pain to the bear but because it gave pleasure to the spectators.

At least I replied to the poster, not simply been sarcastic.

They are jealous of WGs incomes :confused:.

I think it dates back to the laws of God.

Mind you. Even Mary Magdeline was a hooker because Jesus forgave her. Problem is, I think she had to stop working after that. I hope Jesus gave her money so she could afford not to work.

I think prostitution remains taboo because if it were openly accepted it could lead to the breakdown of society as we know it.

Think about it - if young men, in particular, could have no-strings-attached sex with attractive women simply by parting with cash with no guilt or shame, then they would be much less inclined to settle down with a girl in their own attractiveness bracket, knuckle down to a dull job, take out a huge mortgage and spend the next 25 years paying interest to a bank, whilst rearing the next generation of drones.

You'd soon have a falling birth rate, lots of single women, and even more single feckless blokes. All the businesses that rely on supplying us with the stuff that makes up the domestic dream would be stuffed.

So it just can't happen.

There are no fr's to show that Mary Magdeline was a fallen women! it was quoted by Pope gregory the great in the sixth centuary that Mary was a prostitute, the fact that Jesus took away her sins is not conclusive that she was a prostitute.

However I bet if she was a prostitute, and still working, she would be promoted as...

Name.......... Mary

Age... ..........late 30's

Speciality.....GFE, and role play, and after you come can make you rise again.

Availability... Only for outcalls.

Per hour........40 gold pieces.

It depends upon whose puritanical views you are alluding to during the "old days". During the time of Ancient Mesopotamia (present day Iraq) the citizens worshipped the Goddess Ishtar, personification of love, fertility, sex and there was a cult devoted to Sacred Prostitution.

See Natasha Walter's new book, Living Dolls. The rise of feminism, and it's feeling that the hedonism/toleration which took off in the '60s has gone too far, or off in a wrong direction. Feminists hate that porn has gone mainstream (or 'porn that degrades women'), that lapdancing has gone mainstream, that what would once have been called 'white slaving' has returned (consider that it is a plot device in Thoroughly Modern Milly in the 1960s, would it be suitable for a comedy musical today?), that prostitution seems to be going mainstream with TV programmes like Respectable and Secret Diary Of A Call Girl making it look like just another career choice. The example of Sweden and Norway, which show that making it illegal can be forced through the legislature, points the way. 'Sending signals' is considered more important than efficacy. Compare with the ban on pistols a few years ago. Its effect on their use in street crime was negligible, indeed there was no significant problem there to be tackled, but sending the signal that "Britain hates guns" was considered more important. Now Ireland has copied it, and several other countries are copying it. It has been shown to be doable, at least in the administrative sense, and as for the illegal scene, well, there's not much they can do about those, they were always into criminality.

Some truth exists in some of these points. Porn has become more extreme, and unattractive in some of its aspects. White slaving, renamed, does exist though not to the extent that lobbying groups say it does.

seems to be rooted in feminism these days. Harriet Harman and Jaqcui Smith are both feminists, as is Fiona MacTaggart and Denis MacShane is married to one. The others all seem to be either the usual religious types (archbishop of York) or simply licking the boots of HH and JS (vernon Coaker) to try and gain favour with them. Seems to be the same in Sweden etc.

"I think prostitution remains taboo because if it were openly accepted it could lead to the breakdown of society as we know it."

Essentially I agree with what your saying except i believe people fear the breakdown of the morals of society rather than society itself.

Going off track a bit, What I find an abominable is the acceptance that children "conceived" and bought up in a same sex relationship can be condoned and supported in this society. I would vouch that any homosexual currently proffering and endorsing that view would not be alive if it were not for a Heterosexual relationship which gave issue to them. Long live straight sex with the opposite sex................and preferably a WG.

Rant over.

An excellent assessment, and I like your comparison with the seemingly impotent banning of hand guns.

Whilst there is clearly a cabal of neo-feminists with their own agenda, I suspect that there is also true concern amongst even the more liberal of our politicians and law-makers that our hedonism, as you put it, is running rife. When I started "exploring" this "hobby" 8 years ago I was quite adept at using the web and although escort sites were fairly plentiful, you had to search deep to find what you wanted, although PunterNet made that a lot easier. But now, Adu1twork alone carries adverts for over 11,500 female escorts - and all on one site!

The internet is awash with porn. You can find complete videos - not just enticing clips - of pretty well any (legal) sexual act for free. I've never paid for anything from the web and am sometimes curious as to what further "perversions" these paid-for sites have to offer! Indeed, as I recall from reading the review of Natasha Walter's book, the thrust of it was on how pornography has become all-pervasive in our society, even being watched by children from the age of 10 upwards, and certainly often before they have any other sexual relationships, and how this affects their perceptions of the sexual encounter.

The girl Walter had interviewed who'd become a prostitute, bemoaned the fact that even amongst her friends the boys wanted to indulge in anal sex, threesomes etc. so moving onto being paid for it was no big deal, she thought.

You don't have to be a religious moralist to see a threat to society and understand where political thinking may be coming from.

So we're profoundly subversive? (Makes you feel quite proud.)

Quite a possibility and on the same lines -

Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. :confused:
