Sex industry

Germany has become one massive brothel

While the Act candidate is wanting more “choice” for the community regarding prostitutes, the Germans are spoiled for choice as liberalisation of prostitution has turned the country into a massive brothel.

Oktoberfest may soon be renamed Root-fest.

Germany thus embarked on an experiment in liberalisation just as Sweden, a country culturally similar in many ways, was going in the opposite direction. In 1999 the Swedes had made it criminal to pay for sex (pimping was already a crime). By stigmatising not the prostitutes but the men who paid them, even putting them in jail, the Swedes hoped to come close to eliminating prostitution.  Read more »

ACT candidate not happy with the quality of Chch hookers?

The ACT candidate in the Christchurch East by-election has issued a clanger of a press release that appears to be moaning about the state of the cities hookers and demanding more choice.

ACT’s Christchurch East candidate, Gareth Veale, wants more local choice to control street prostitution.

Obviously not happy with the standard of the city’s pay per root slappers.

He says there should be “local rules for local reasons” and points out how this is already happening with alcohol. “The new liquor laws give Councils the right to produce their own Local Liquor Policy,” he says. “That proves it can be done.  Read more »

A bludgers tale


Too afraid to face people for a job, but not to protest.

The welfare reforms have brought out all manner of bludgers to cry a tale of woe to a gullible media. Take Beau de Royce as a case in point.

“I’m going to counselling with ACC – I can’t even face people properly; I get too frightened and I hide – and yet they’re still trying to push me out into jobs”

Ok that’s understandable and could be a legitimate issue… but then the next comment is:

“I don’t want to go out pinching, I don’t want to go to jail, that’s horrible, so the only legal thing I know is prostitution.”   Read more »

Erotic Republic of Iran

They might have Mahmoud Ahmadinnerjacket in charge but Iran is really experiencing a sexual revolution rather than their ongoing Islamic revolution.

Changing attitudes toward marriage and divorce have coincided with a dramatic shift in the way Iranians approach relationships and sex. According to one study cited by a high-ranking Ministry of Youth official in December 2008, a majority of male respondents admitted having had at least one relationship with someone of the opposite sex before marriage. About 13 percent of those “illicit” relationships, moreover, resulted in unwanted pregnancy and abortion — numbers that, while modest, would have been unthinkable a generation ago. It is little wonder, then, that the Ministry of Youth’s research center has warned that “unhealthy relationships and moral degeneration are the leading causes of divorces among the young Iranian couples.”  Read more »

Iceland trying to ban sex industry

Iceland is trying to ban online pornography and the sex industry in general. Good luck with that.


ULTRA-LIBERAL Iceland wants to ban online pornography. It is just the latest step in its attempts to eliminate the sex industry entirely. In 2009 it introduced fines and jail terms for those who patronise prostitutes (whom it treats as victims). In 2010 it outlawed strip clubs. In February the government decided to take on the glut of smut online and floated the idea of banning violent or degrading pornography, which some Icelanders take to mean most of it. No country has yet wholly succeeded in controlling commercial sex, either through legalisation or criminalisation. But all over the world, particularly in rich democracies, policymakers are watching to see whether Iceland succeeds—and may follow in its footsteps if it does.

Iceland’s proposal is in its early stages and may lose momentum after an election on April 27th, which the government is expected to lose. But its plan puts it in some odd company. Saudi Arabia similarly bans strip clubs, prostitution and pornography. But it also stops women from driving, forbids them from travelling without a man’s permission and restricts their right to vote. In the World Economic Forum’s 2012 Global Gender Gap report, which compares progress in 135 countries towards sex equality, Saudi Arabia ranked 131st.

Iceland, however, is determinedly pro-women. Half the cabinet and 25 of the 63 members of Iceland’s parliament are female. The country is run by the world’s only openly lesbian prime minister. Iceland is also pro-sex. Its supermarkets sell condoms and mini-vibrators next to checkouts. A new sex-education film informs teenagers that sex should be something they want to do again and again, and then maybe again. Some 65% of Icelandic children are born outside marriage, more than any other country in the OECD. Same-sex marriage has been legal since 2010 and gays and lesbians can adopt children. Icelandair ran a campaign featuring the tagline, “Fancy a dirty weekend in Iceland?”

The country’s initiatives against the sex industry have been championed by a powerful feminist movement. “Tackling online porn, particularly the violent kind, is part of a broader set of policies to protect children and reduce sexual violence,” says Halla Gunnarsdottir, a political adviser to the interior minister who has proposed the law. But the more ambitious Iceland has become in its war against the sex industry, the less success it seems to enjoy.

Bizzare. They came for the strip clubs first…

Did Farrar cause Ron Jeremy’s health scare?

Obviously David Farrar’s hurty arse and the mention of Ron Jeremy are connected to the hospitalisation of the porn star with an aneurysm…I can see it can’t you:

Cult porn star Ron Jeremy is in a critical condition in hospital after being treated for an aneurysm near his heart.

Jeremy, 59, who is perhaps the adult film industry’s best known faces, checked himself into Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after experiencing severe chest pain.  Read more »

I bet he was registered when he paid a teenager to have sex with his 16-year-old girlfriend, while he watched.

The various teacher union oppose Charter Schools because they say the teachers won’t be required to be registered. They reckon kids will be at risk.

I’ll bet this teacher was registered when he was offending:

A former Tauranga teacher paid a teenager to have sex with his 16-year-old girlfriend, while he watched.

Andrew Loader, 49, pleaded guilty to a charge under the Prostitution Reform Act 2003 in Tauranga District Court today, the Sunlive website reported.

A charge of paying a 16-year-old for sexual services was withdrawn and replaced with one of contract sex with a person under 18.

Loader paid the man, who was in a consensual sexual relationship with the girl, to have sex while he watched. He was remanded on bail for sentencing on March 15.  Read more »

Maybe they just want a root? Ctd

Yesterday I blogged about hookers and  brothels and suggested that contrary to the reported study that men just wanted a root.

Of course a few of my women readers jumped in and over analysed the issue but one gave this explanation for why men visit hookers:

Which is awesome. That’s the perfect excuse.

Imagine it…you come home after letting a bit of pressure out of the back wheels and the missus goes all “Inquisition” on you. Using Lucia’s fantastic excuse, you simply bat off the query with a nonchalant response like this:

“I was in the knock shop looking for God. He wasn’t there so tomorrow night I will have to try the one down the road where I heard he stopped in for a few beers, the free bbq and a blowie Saturday arvo.”


A winning strategy

A car wash in Malaysia has cottoned onto a winning strategy….though perhaps they should have tried this in Las Vegas. Perhaps Air New Zealand should try this to “realign” their Air Points scheme:

Malaysian police have shut down a car wash that was offering regular customers free sex after every ninth car wash.

Malaysian newspaper The Malay Mail reports the car wash in the Kuala Lumpur suburb of Sunway Mentari had been open for three months and had formed a partnership with a local massage parlour, enabling customers to redeem free sex from the brothel as part of a customer loyalty scheme.

The Mail reports that police stormed the parlour and found several stamped loyalty cards that had been used by customers to cash-in on the car wash deal.

Malaysian officer Emmi Shah Fadhil told The Malay Mail that the bust was unexpected.

“It was supposed to be just another routine operation,” Emmi Shah told the paper. The police squad that raided the massage parlour were told of the deal during the raid, and they found five customers taking advantage of the offer.

“To get the extra ‘offer’, customers must send their cars for washing nine times within a certain period,” Emmi Shah says. “The tenth car wash will entitle them to free sex.”

Maybe they just want a root?

I knew a wise old geezer who once told me that you don’t pay a hooker for sex…you pay them to f*ck off afterwards. Another mate thinks you pay cock tax no matter what, so at least the cock tax with hookers is pre-negotiated and agreed before hand.

Katherine Feeney has discovered some interesting research:

Suggestively and succinctly entitled The Hobbyist and the Girlfriend Experience: Behaviors and Preferences of Male Customers of Internet Sexual Service Providers, the work is newly published in the American journal Deviant Behavior and comes from two experts credentialed in the field of prostitution and personal relationships.

And the conclusion basically finds most men surveyed preferred not to consider the women they ‘bought’ as “dirty whores” or bodies “for sexual release”.

Instead, the majority of the 584 male subjects paid for sex because they were looking for the “girlfriend experience or GFE over all other personal qualities and behaviours”.

How does that sit with your expectations?

Does it fit with your thoughts about why some people pay for sex?

The demographics are intesting too:

If it jars, then you might be interested in the author’s disclaimer. Their subjects were members of a particular adult services forum, and they were all male – mostly white, middle-aged, educated married and earning six-figure salaries. In other words, they are not representative of every person who pays for sex (and I say person, because females hire sex workers too).

But still, it’s important to note these blokes weren’t conforming to the usual, negative John stereotypes. They were seeking an “idealized version of a girlfriend” in the women whose services they purchased, with ‘ideal’ seemingly meaning a woman who is up for sex, interested in his needs, not too emotionally demanding and cares to come when he “makes the effort to bring her there”.

I’m curious, how does this ideal fit in with the male readers of this blog? Is this what you want from women?

And they want fairly straight sex too…which will please Andrei and Lucia no end:

Furthermore, the researchers found these guys preferred good (pardon the moral deliberateness) old-fashioned “penile-vaginal coitus” to any other sex act. Not anal or oral or any other kind of freaky-deaky sex so commonly thought of as the kind men really want.

Again, I’m curious about how this finding fits in with the male readers of this blog.

I think Katherine Feeney is all at sea…I bet Cactus Kate knows exactly what the real answer is…that the blokes just want a no hassle root and for the chick to shut up and disappear afterwards, just like my wise old mate from Wellington said.
