Naked female activists call for ‘Euro 2012 without prostitution’ A group of Ukrainian women stripped off for a topless demonstration against the threat of prostitution during Euro 2012. Protesters of women activist group FEMEN Angry: Protesters of women activist group FEMEN demonstrate against prostitution (Picture: REUTERS) Five members of the Femen women’s rights group donned flesh-coloured knickers and tights for the eye-catching protest. They also adorned their underwear with miniature footballs and wore toilet paper around their shins. The organisation believes that Uefa is encouraging the legalisation of prostitution during the 2012 European Championship, which kicks off in June. Spokeswomen Inna Shevchenko has alleged the international football organisation is ‘trying to influence our government’ to make the practice of selling sex legal in time for the competition. Demonstrators at the event carried banners with the slogan ‘Euro 2012 without prostitution’. However, the protest was short lived as police arrived soon after it began, and dragged the women away. Members of the Femen group are known for staging naked protests around Europe. Ms Shevchenko has previously explained the group’s unusual tactic by stating that classic feminism ‘no longer works’. ‘It is, if you excuse me, impotent. But what we do brings the desired effect. That’s why not only Ukraine needs us, but Europe as well. We are planning to take over the world,’ she said.

Rather inconsiderate and unrealistic group, taking the role of sexually liberated women who cynically wish to deny men sex. Subversive c0ckteasers if anything? They obviously while young and suitable for sex work, do not understand the male libido or sho consideration for the male tourists. A “Wo-male” activist group needs to be set up. “Wo-male” should be an all male, naked except for a sock worn over the penis (was going to say penis sheath but that could be too culturally biased unless in a country that does use those), counter protest group demonstrating to encourage prostitution.

(Compilation of excerpts from various sources) Price Control Advisory / General Pricing For Prostitutes – Original Article by @AgreeToDisagree – 4th December 2011
Twice or thrice national minimum hourly wage for each trick is typical and a reasonable maximum charge for somethin which is effectively leisure.
‘A prostitute who works 7 days a week charging minimum wage of RM5 to RM15 per trick rather than per hour to earn RM100-300 servicing up to 20 clients per day which amounts to RM3000 per month,’ says a woman’s NGO. ‘However, the prettier ones will cost more (up to 3 times minimum wage) and also the diligent one in an hour can earn as much as 50 after 10 blowjobs or 3 sex sessions at the local glory hole. In general prostitutes manage to earn no more than what a degree holder in senior management does – around 10,000 at most, with as an unwritten rule a full 10% given to madams, pimps or agents, not too much different from property agent’s commissions.’
Most of these women are from poorer Asian countries or lower class families in socially immobile Europe and the Americas. In the Middle East a foreign “wife” on a one to one assignment costs between RM30 for 6 hours and RM100 for 24 hours.
Due to social strata/status issues, and sensitivity about minimum wage for more laborious work, this prevents prostitution and pimping as a profession from proliferating uncontrollably in society. Promotion of formal legalisation of adult industry work is underway in many countries.
Examples of Abuse from lack of Legislation
Sex parties are organised by prostitutes with 4 participants, to large ones with more than 30 participants. The venue is kept secret until the last minute as existing laws tend to be interpreted to disallow even non-Muslims to have sex parties, except at private residences. Once attedees are confirmed, an sms by handphone is sent to participants. The newcomers are made to pay between RM100 to RM300 to attend, and the entrance collection is distributed by the organisers.
With a legalized sex party, there can be no abuse of such entry fees. However due to prohibition era laws in less enlightened societies, sex is a ‘rare commodity’ subject to extraction of bribes to avoid the cumbersome legal system (which states adult service industry services are illegal in Malaysia or that sex work monopolized by such groups), and compounded by the fact that no legal protection exists, it is better to not visit Malaysia or other 3rd world repressive societies due to the backward laws and opportunists or overcharging ‘clubs’ who should be boycotted.
Most people need to have sex, and most people also earn barely enough to buy a home, so until price controls and legalisation occurs, it is best to seek such fun elsewhere and not be taken advantage of financially at least.
Legalize
The government and judiciary need to legalise to address this problem that doubtless plagues any adult with any measure of healthy libido. According to Harian Metro, the services of an Arab woman “social escort” for reach as high as RM500 for the whole day, in Kuala Lumpur. Now think, why would anyone want to waste the cash on such unreasonable fees for what should even be free? Sex workers deserve to earn no more than what a degree holding professional at most – in general this is about 3000 to 10,000 a princely sum considering that no education debt comes with this profession as a premium.
Legalize Prostitution and impose price controls before the greedy people who doubtless ‘feed’ greedy police to ignore their activities, corrupt the morals of the impoverished or greedy. This is the best way to encourage higher values and yet at the same time ensure those who do have the libidos to indulge do not end up frustrated or being overcharged far beyond what is rather enjoyable work.
The only exception is the sale of virginity as seen below : “A student auctions her virginity to pay for a masters degree in Family and Marriage therapy has seen bidding hit £2.5million ($3.7m). Natalie Dylan, 22, claims her offer of a one-night stand has persuaded 10,000 men to bid for sex with her. Last September, when her auction came to light, she had received bids up to £162,000 ($243,000) but since then interest in her has rocketed. The student who has a degree in Women’s Studies insisted she was not demeaning herself.” To demean means to “debase, as in dignity or social standing.” Dignity means “The quality or state of being worthy of esteem or respect.” Or “Inherent nobility and worth.”
This one off fund (much like evading education fees to work in the adult sector, though some are simply inclined to wards this profession like adult star Sasha Grey) especially from impoverished comes at extreme social cost, effectively barring entry and climibing the social ladder which most families from middle classes hope to do some day limited the participation to the poor or the greedy.
Compared against a marriage to a poor or socially low status man and subsequent dependency though, this has become a viable social interaction, though even then those who understand sublimination of poverty into something spiritual itself are yet another dimension in the variety of individuals and variety of self expression which should NEVER be manipulated but allowed full autonomy in decision, usually concurrent with the social and personal expression of the parents as well as the society they come from. Sex work always will carry the stigma of ‘inclusiveness’ and a sense of mass consumerism that upper crust types so detest.
Typically though and legally, from various reports, sales of virginity reach no higher than 5000-8000 local monetary units is small towns, to 20,000 to 50,000 local monetary units in large towns, with the above case an exception that was hyped out of proportion. Sales are usually only reserved for the prettier adolescent aged persons.

Drive-in/Drive-thru sex stalls – Zurich Considering Drive-In Sex Stalls, Making Prostitution More Convenient For Everybody Written By Esteban November 21st, 2011
How many times have you wanted to pick up a hooker on the way home from work, only to have your desire for a quickie thwarted by a lack of motel rooms that rent by the quarter hour? Well, residents of Zurich, Switzerland, may soon have a solution to this common problem. Back on September 14, the city parliament voted in favor of a proposal to erect a new publicly funded prostitution facility outfitted with what they are calling “performance stalls.” Basically, these are drive-in sex rooms that allow customers to be quickly and conveniently “serviced” in (or on, I suppose) their own automobiles. In addition to these sex stalls, the new prostitution facility would include a variety of amenities and services for the McHookers, such as an on-site counseling office. As you might imagine, there has been a great deal of opposition to this plan to build a modern drive-in/drive-thru whore house. However, critics aren’t really opposed to the facility on moral grounds. For the most part, they’re fine with people buying and selling sexual favors. What they don’t like is the “socialist” idea of using public money ($2.8 million) to finance the private economic endeavors of sexual entrepreneurs. As councilor Ruth Anhorn explains, “It is about the oldest profession in society. The taxpayer should not co-finance a bordello.” Opponents have succeeded in calling a referendum on the issue. So now taxpayers themselves will get to decide if they want to spend their money on a public drive-in sex facility. How would you vote?

Vote aye. How about some pedestrian sex stalls for ‘Walking Streets’ (non car venues) as well? It’s not too different from breastfeeding IMHO as a natural function, and Sex Booths (Toilet Stall Styles perhaps?) for pedestrians shouldn’t be too far off – for Red Light Districts and Adult Services Districts at any rate.

‘If you don’t take a job as a prostitute, we can stop your benefits’ – by Clare Chapman 12:01AM GMT 30 Jan 2005

A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing “sexual services” at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefit under laws introduced this year. Prostitution was legalised in Germany just over two years ago and brothel owners – who must pay tax and employee health insurance – were granted access to official databases of jobseekers.The waitress, an unemployed information technology professional, had said that she was willing to work in a bar at night and had worked in a cafe. She received a letter from the job centre telling her that an employer was interested in her “profile” and that she should ring them. Only on doing so did the woman, who has not been identified for legal reasons, realise that she was calling a brothel.

Under Germany’s welfare reforms, any woman under 55 who has been out of work for more than a year can be forced to take an available job – including in the sex industry – or lose her unemployment benefit. Last month German unemployment rose for the 11th consecutive month to 4.5 million, taking the number out of work to its highest since reunification in 1990.

The government had considered making brothels an exception on moral grounds, but decided that it would be too difficult to distinguish them from bars. As a result, job centres must treat employers looking for a prostitute in the same way as those looking for a dental nurse.

When the waitress looked into suing the job centre, she found out that it had not broken the law. Job centres that refuse to penalise people who turn down a job by cutting their benefits face legal action from the potential employer.

“There is now nothing in the law to stop women from being sent into the sex industry,” said Merchthild Garweg, a lawyer from Hamburg who specialises in such cases.

“The new regulations say that working in the sex industry is not immoral any more, and so jobs cannot be turned down without a risk to benefits.”

Miss Garweg said that women who had worked in call centres had been offered jobs on telephone sex lines. At one job centre in the city of Gotha, a 23-year-old woman was told that she had to attend an interview as a “nude model”, and should report back on the meeting. Employers in the sex industry can also advertise in job centres, a move that came into force this month. A job centre that refuses to accept the advertisement can be sued.

Tatiana Ulyanova, who owns a brothel in central Berlin, has been searching the online database of her local job centre for recruits. “Why shouldn’t I look for employees through the job centre when I pay my taxes just like anybody else?” said Miss Ulyanova. Ulrich Kueperkoch wanted to open a brothel in Goerlitz, in former East Germany, but his local job centre withdrew his advertisement for 12 prostitutes, saying it would be impossible to find them.

Mr Kueperkoch said that he was confident of demand for a brothel in the area and planned to take a claim for compensation to the highest court. Prostitution was legalised in Germany in 2002 because the government believed that this would help to combat trafficking in women and cut links to organised crime.

Miss Garweg believes that pressure on job centres to meet employment targets will soon result in them using their powers to cut the benefits of women who refuse jobs providing sexual services. “They are already prepared to push women into jobs related to sexual services, but which don’t count as prostitution,” she said.

“Now that prostitution is no longer considered by the law to be immoral, there is really nothing but the goodwill of the job centres to stop them from pushing women into jobs they don’t want to do.

Discouraging people from taking benefits in this method is clever as too many are simply taking advantage of the welfare system. Look at the number of foreign workers having jobs and even paying taxes. Why should other taxpayers support these lazy people? Ther definately jobs for them, the government knows that and is retaliating/subtly educating in this manner to make them make haste to take jobs (or be drafted into prostitution), from foreigners which is also good to keep money in the nation.
