Seven Reasons Brothels Should Be Legalised

When it comes to discussing the future of the sex industry, how brothels fit into it is always a matter of debate. To some they are ‘dens of filth’ and the police should be closing them down.

Should Sex Workers Have Designated Areas To Work?

Here at Escort Scotland we have long called for the decriminalisation of sex work. There seems to me no sensible argument against having proper areas for sex workers to operate in, be that a brothel or designated streets.

What Happens if You Don’t Pay a Sex Worker After Sex?

ne big question in the sex industry is how does the law see refusal to pay a sex worker for services? What would happen if you had sex, and when asked for the cash, you told them ‘no’?

This is not for punters who are thinking of chancing their arm. This is for the sex workers who are affected by scum taking advantage; they need to know where to go and what they can expect.

They imagine someone who needs some extra cash, who perhaps works another job and does a little bit of escorting on the side. People tend to forget that sex workers come in all shapes and sizes, and that they can be anything from mature ladies to students. Continue reading Why Are Students Becoming Escorts?

Lib Dem Politician Forced to Resign Over Sex Work Comment

When there was a possibility that School Careers Offices could suggest prostitution as a line of work to pupils, Dennis Parsons, the chairman of Cheltenham Liberal Democrats introduced the notion that the idea shouldn’t be dismissed, and mentioned that something needs to be done to get rid of the stigmatisation of sex work. What came afterwards for Parsons were a lot of angry comments, counter attacks from his colleagues, and a resignation paper with his name written on it.
