Polish Women In “No Sex” Protest!

When people protest, they might decide to draw attention to their cause in a number of different ways. They might take to the streets on a busy day to talk to people and make them aware of what is going on, or they might decide to stop doing something. In Poland, women there are refusing to cook and clean. They also have a “no sex” ban in order to make their voices heard on an important issue.

But what exactly does the no sex ban mean? How will a protest of no sex help their cause? Here on the Escort Scotland blog we take a look at why putting a “no sex” ban might be a great way to draw attention to the important issues.

Let’s talk about sex

We are obsessed with sex. If you want to get people talking and gossiping, the best way to do it is to mention sex. Even those people who don’t feel totally comfortable talking about the subject can’t help but see the word and be intrigued. After all, how many news stories do you find yourself reading, simply because they talk about sex?

If you want to get someone’s attention, talking about or using sex is a great way to do it. Heads will turn, eyes will gaze, and people will be curious to know exactly what is going on. Sex is a popular topic of conversation, and one that we cannot resist. No wonder people have decided to use sex as part of a protest!

No sex for you

However, some Polish women have decided that they are going to use sex in a different way to get attention. Instead of talking about sex, they are talking about no sex. In order to draw attention to the cause, thousands of Polish women are vowing to say “no” to having sex with their partners, as well as giving up cleaning and cooking, all in order to protest.

The protest is to draw attention and show disagreement with controversial abortion laws that may soon be coming into play. The bill was first introduced by a Catholic lobby group, hoping to make any and all abortions illegal. The only exception is said to be “those who are in imminent danger of death”.

Controversial laws

When it comes to abortion laws, they are often incredibly controversial. This one is no diffeerent. The fact that it has been introduced by a Catholic lobby group, who are extremely right wing, has made this a hugely debated topic. Those critical of the law have stated that it is far too severe. They believe that the law would mean that even those who deserve the choice will be unable to get the help that they need, regardless of the circumstances. Even those who have been the victim of rape would be unable to get the procedure.

The law would mean that women receiving abortions and doctors providing them would be criminalised, and many have come forward against it. Magda Staroszczyk, a co-ordinator for the strike, stated that “a lot of women and girls in this country have felt that they don’t have any power, that they are not equal, that they don’t have the right to an opinion. This is a chance for us to be seen, and to be heard.” Many have also stated that the best solution would be to have better sex education, instead of banning abortions to all.

The verdict

So far, the protest has gained a huge amount of support, as well as a large amount of attention. By stating that they will have no sex, these Polish women have managed to draw the eyes of the world their way and get people to start thinking about the important topic. Hopefully, this attention will be enough to the Sejm, the Polish Parliament, to think about the draft law that they have just approved.
