PROSTITUTION SHOULD BE LEGALISED AND CONTROLLED

PROSTITUTION SHOULD BE LEGALISED AND CONTROLLED

I KNOW A MAN IN HIS MID 50s WHO LIVES IN RURAL IRELAND. HE GOT MARRIED TO HIS WIFE WHEN HE AND HER WERE BOTH 18. WHEN THEY WERE 25 THE WIFE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS AND SHE HAS BEEN SERIOUSLY ILL WITH IT FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS. MY FRIEND HAS KEPT HER AT HOME AND LOOKED AFTER HER EVERY NEED FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS. HE IS A DEVOTED HUSBAND.

THERE IS ONE SERIOUS PROBLEM THOUGH - HE CANNOT HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH HIS WIFE - AND THEY HAVE NOT FOR 30 YEARS!

ONCE A MONTH MY FRIEND GOES TO DUBLIN AND VISITS AN OFF STREET PROSTITUTE IN HER APARTMENT. THEY HAVE SEX. THEY THEN GO OUT FOR A MEAL AND AFTERWARDS MY FRIEND RETURNS HOME TO CARE FOR HIS WIFE FOR ANOTHER MONTH. 

IS MY FRIEND A BAD MAN? IS HE A SINNER? IS HE ABUSING WOMEN? 

SHOULD HE BE CONDEMNED? SHOULD HE BE ARRESTED AND SHAMED? SHOULD HE BE PUT IN PRISON FOR REPEATED "CRIMES"? WILL GOD SEND HIM TO HELL WHEN HE DIES?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THERE ARE VERY SERIOUS CRIMES IN THE WORLD OF PROSTITUTION:

1. FORCING A MAN OR WOMAN TO BE A PROSTITUTE.
2. TRAFFICKING PEOPLE FOR PROSTITUTION.
3. FORCING / ENCOURAGING UNDER AGE PEOPLE INTO PROSTITUTION.
4. PIMPING - USING A MAN OR WOMAN AS A WORK SLAVE FOR YOU AND TAKING         THEIR MONEY.
5. ASSAULTING OR KILLING PROSTITUTES.

HOWEVER, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT IF A TOTALLY FREE PERSON OF ADULT AGE, WITH NO SOCIAL OR MENTAL ISSUES, DECIDES TO BE A "SEX WORKER", THAT SUCH A PERSON SHOULD BE CRIMINALISED.

NOT CAN I BELIEVE THAT IF AN ADULT WHO IS VERY LONELY, AND HAS NO OTHER ACCESS TO PHYSICAL INTIMACY, DECIDES TO USE THE SERVICES OF A SEX WORKER, AND RESPECTS THAT PERSON, SHOULD BE CRIMINALISED EITHER. 

IT IS NOT SOCIETY'S JOB TO BE A MORAL POLICE FORCE FOR CONSENTING ADULTS.

THIS WEEK THE SWISS AUTHORITIES HAVE STARTED A NEW EXPERIMENT. IN ZURICH THE AUTHORITIES HAVE ERECTED "SEX BOXES" IN DISCREET, OUT OF THE WAY AREAS. THESE SEX BOXES ARE OPEN ON ONE SIDE. THEY CONTAIN CAFE TABLES, LOCKERS, TOILETS AND SHOWERS. THERE ARE NO CCTV CAMERAS. BUT THERE ARE PAID GOVERNMENT SOCIAL WORKERS NEARBY AND EACH WOMAN HAS A PANIC BUTTON. 

I THINK THAT THIS OPEN AND MATURE RESPONSE TO PROSTITUTION IS A MUCH BETTER SOLUTION FOR A SITUATION THAT ALWAYS HAS EXISTED AND ALWAYS WILL EXIST.

PROSTITUTION SHOULD BE DECRIMINALISED AND CONTROLLED. PROSTITUTES SHOULD HAVE A LICENCE. THEY SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO VERY REGULAR HEALTH CHECKS TO PROTECT THEM AND THEIR CLIENTS. 

IN THIS WAY YOU CAN TAKE PROSTITUTION OFF THE STREETS. YOU CAN GET RID OF THE PIMPS THAT BRUTALISE SEX WORKERS. 
WHAT ABOUT PROSTITUTION FROM THE MORAL POINT OF VIEW?

THE IDEAL SITUATION - ESPECIALLY FROM THE CHRISTIAN POINT OF VIEW - IS THAT SEXUAL INTIMACY WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE CONTEXT OF A LOVING AND RESPECTFUL RELATIONSHIP.

ALL OF US HAVE THE MORAL OBLIGATION NOT TO "USE" OR "ABUSE" WHEN IT COMES TO SEXUALITY.

BUT I DO NOT THINK THAT GOD IS THE "ETERNAL VOYEUR" - SITTING UP IN HEAVEN WITH A TELESCOPE - WATCHING WHAT 7 BILLION PEOPLE AROUND THE GLOBE ARE DOING WITH THEIR GENITALS.

THAT WOULD MAKE GOD THE DIRTIEST OLD MAN IN THE UNIVERSE.

GOD IS MORE CONCERNED TODAY WITH THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE OF SYRIA, THE SUFFERINGS OF THE PEOPLE OF EGYPT, THE SUFFERINGS OF THOSE WHO ARE HUNGRY, THIRSTY, HOMELESS, SICK, DYING, THAN HE IS ABOUT WHAT MEN AND WOMEN ARE DOING WITH THEIR WILLIES AND FRONT BOTTIES.

IT IS MEN AND WOMEN - AND NOT GOD - WHO ARE OBSESSED WITH SEX.

PART OF THAT OBSESSION IS BEING PREOCCUPIED WITH PROSTITUTION.

THE PEOPLE MOST OBSESSED WITH SEX ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT GETTING IT !!!!!

  1. Makes allot of sense. legalise it then males & females involved can be safe & protected. Prostitution is the oldest profession in the world. On a recent flight between Knock & Liverpool a young lad told me he has a mate in Wexford who has two women "on the go" One woman has 2 children & is expecting a long term relationship. The second woman is also been seen & a third is being "lined up" The chap involved is quite proud of his record. All women were met through dating sites on the internet. This fellow I believe is engaging in pseudo prostitution. Gaining sexual favours through false pretences & raising irrational hopes. This is the kind of double standards that should be condenmed.

  2. Maybe the church needs to allow concubinage to come back.
