January 18, 2006


I read in the Metro today that the government is planning to change the sex laws so that up-to-three-person 'mini brothels' become legal, where currently it is only legal for individual prostitutes to practice in a single property.

Now, I really am torn on this issue. I do not condone prostitution at all. In a perfect scenario it would be great to get rid of it completely. Anything that leads to the increase of prostitution, which this change in the law may do, is not desirable.

However, we have to be realistic: eradicating prostitution completely will never happen. In this case the converse argument is extremely valid: in these small brothels prostitutes may well be protected by safety in numbers and thus live in better conditions.

Any thoughts?
