Decriminalising Britain's £4bn sex industry would increase protection of women. By Dr Catherine Hakim
Link Here

supply and desire New evidence from international sex surveys show large and continuing differences between male and female perspectives on sexuality in all cultures. Male sexual desire is manifested at least twice as often as female desire, and men would like to have sex twice as often as women. This gap in sexual desire between men and women is growing over time and cannot be dismissed as an out-dated patriarchal myth as argued by some feminists.

The sexual deficit among (heterosexual) men helps to explain many puzzles, including why men are the principal customers for commercial sexual entertainments of all kinds. It is no surprise that sex workers (male and female) cater to men almost exclusively. Male demand for sex invariably outstrips female demand.

Demand for commercial sex is therefore inevitable and the sex industry is likely to continue to flourish in the 21st century. Not only does male demand for sexual activity greatly outstrip non-commercial female supply, but economic growth, globalisation and the Internet facilitate access to the world's oldest profession.

Several factors suggest that the male sex deficit will not disappear, and might even grow in the 21st century. Women's increasing economic independence allows them to withdraw from sexual markets and relationships that they perceive to offer unfair bargains, especially if they already have enough children or do not want any. Changes in national sex ratios towards a numerical surplus of men helps women to reset the rules in their own favour in developed societies.

A key objection to the sex industry is that it damages women and that the presence of porn, lap-dancing and prostitution in a country promotes rape and other violence against women. However, although there are too few rigorous studies to draw definitive conclusions, all the available evidence points in the direction of prostitution and erotic entertainments having no noxious psychological or social effects, and they may even help to reduce sexual crime rates.

In many countries, including Britain, it is perfectly legal to sell sexual services; however any third-party involvement is illegal. The aim is to prevent exploitation by pimps or madams. The effect is to criminalise the industry and brothels, to prevent girls working together in a flat for their mutual protection, to prevent anyone from lawfully supplying services to a sex worker or even rent a flat to them.

The commercial sex industry is impervious to prohibitions and cannot be eliminated. Countries that criminalise buyers (such as Sweden) simply push demand abroad to countries with a more sex-positive culture. Policies that criminalise sellers directly, or criminalise third parties who supply them with services, simply push the sex industry underground, increasing risks for sex workers. The sex industry is estimated to be worth over four billion pounds to the British economy. It should be completely decriminalised.

Alabama lawmaker thinks that a massive tax on adult products will bail out the state
Link Here  full story: Pole Tax...Discriminatory taxes on adult entertainment in USA
Alabama state seal Alabama State Representative Jack Williams has proposed a 40% sales tax on receipts from the sale of sexually oriented materials as a desperate measure to help fill the $250+ million black hole in Alabama's General Fund budget.

Sexually oriented materials are described in the bill as:

Any book, magazine, newspaper, printed or written matter, writing, description, picture, drawing, animation, photograph, motion picture, film, video tape, pictorial presentation, depiction, image, electrical or electronic reproduction, broadcast, transmission, video download, telephone communication, sound recording, article, device, equipment, matter, oral communication, depicting breast or genital nudity or sexual conduct.

The tax hike would be in addition to the state, city and county sales taxes already in place, which usually runs up another 10 percent in costs.

Williams said:

We have created a class of products in this state that you have to be 18 to purchase and they have excise taxes on them. The state is broke.

Montgomery insiders say it has a realistic chance to pass, as Williams has accrued 26 co-sponsors for his bill, including Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard

Italy flag Milan's deputy mayor is claiming that sex workers should wear high-vis jackets rather than more sexy attire. Deputy mayor Luciano Sinigaglia spouted:

The sex workers should be treated as employees who work on road construction and forced to wear clothes that make them visible.

He said this meant sensible reflective clothing and no miniskirts.

Sex workers caught a second time without the right highway clothing will be hauled into the police station. We are almost ready with the definitive draft of the document. I hope to have it [the ordinance] up and running by the start of September, Sinigaglia told teh newspaper Corriere Della Sera.

Amnesty International votes for a policy calling for the decriminalisation of sex work
Link Here
First Do No Harm DVD Actresses including Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson, write an open letter opposing an Amnesty International policy to endorse the decriminalisation of the sex trade.

The human rights group is set to review its internal policy document on sex work at a meeting in Dublin next month.

But the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) said that if the new policy was adopted, Amnesty would in effect advocate the legalisation of pimping, brothel owning and sex buying that forms the basis of the lucrative global sex industry.

Signatories from the lucrative media industry also includes Emily Blunt, Lena Dunham and Anne Hathaway.

Amnesty is reviewing its policy amid evidence that criminalising adults for consensual sex work can lead to greater abuse against sex workers . The charity is in the final stages of receiving feedback on the draft policy but stressed that no decision had yet been made.

Offsite Comment: The Guardian's high priestesses of PC speak in favour of a violent and exploitative environment for sex workers

3rd August 2015. See  article from  theguardian.com

The Guardian Obviously, Amnesty is right to say that sex workers have human rights and that these should be respected ...BUT... many Amnesty supporters believe that the trade itself tends to corrupt or to violate these rights, except for a lucky few participants. The broadest coalitions unite around the narrowest agendas. A call to legalise sex work is a distraction from Amnesty's core mission, and dangerous to it too.

5th August 2015. See  article from  theguardian.com . By Luca Stevenson, coordinator of the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe and Dr Agata Dziuban, the organisation's policy officer in Poland

What should matter to Amnesty's directors and members is the strong, growing and undeniable evidence collected by academics and international organisations such as the World Health Organisation , Human Rights Watch and the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women that criminalising any aspect of sex work makes sex workers more vulnerable to sexual and other forms of violence, forced rehabilitation, arrests, deportation and contracting HIV.

What should matter even more is the voice of the sex workers themselves, who from every corner of the world are organising -- often in the most difficult environments -- to advocate for their rights and to change laws and policies that harm them.

Update: Amnesty International votes to support the decriminalisation of all aspects of consensual sex work

12th August 2015. See  article from  strangethingsarehappening.com

amnesty international logo Men just want to get laid, whilst the sex workers just want to earn a bit of money to feed their kids. Yet some would like to see all these innocent people get jailed, just so that extremist feminists can feel good about their gender equality.

And it's good to see that Human rights group Amnesty International has also come out against the persecution and jailing of innocent people by voting to support the decriminalisation of prostitution at their biennial International Council Meeting.

Delegates from around the world gathered in Dublin for the meeting, and voted to adopt a resolution that will allow the organisation to develop and adopt a pro-decriminalisation policy. The resolution recommends that the full decriminalisation of all aspects of consensual sex work is supported by the organisation.

Salil Shetty, Amnesty's Secretary General, said about the resolution:

We recognise that this critical human rights issue is hugely complex and that is why we have addressed this issue from the perspective of international human rights standards.

Amnesty International now joins a host of other groups in their support for decriminalisation, including the World Health Organisation, the United Nations AIDS programme UNAIDS, and leading medical journal The Lancet .

These groups see the stigma and criminalisation that surrounds prostitution as roadblocks to stopping abuse, trafficking and the spread of diseases like HIV and AIDS.

Comment: Moron of the Week: The Guardian

13th August 2015. See  article from  moronwatch.net

moron watch logo History has just been made. The world's leading human rights organisation, Amnesty International has finally, belatedly, accepted that sex workers are people with rights, and has called for their trade to be decriminalised.

For liberals, this kind of decision would once have been a no-brainer. But liberalism has become infested with puritanical, authoritarian ideas, and many liberals are highly illiberal when it comes to core issues of individual liberty -- most of all, when sex is involved. Almost 4 years ago, I began to wake up to this, and wrote a piece about the Guardian's sexual hang-ups . My observation that the secular left and the religious right had almost blurred into one entity was one of the catalysts that ended my Guardian subscription, and began my growing disenchantment with the increasingly conservative political left.

PornHub introduces a premium subscription service along the lines of Netflix

pornhub logo Pornhub, a vast network of online adult content which attracts a 6 million visitors a day, has launched Pornhub Premium, a paid subscription platform it calls Netflix for porn .

For $9.99 a month, members will receive access to exclusive, full-length HD videos, along with the ability watch the rest of Pornhub's 3m videos without being subjected to pop-up ads and with faster video playback and higher streaming quality. The service will complement the company's free offering.

While Pornhub describes the new site as Netflix for porn , a more apt point of comparison is Spotify, which also offers a free, ad-supported version to go along with its core paid product. Considering the challenges unique to its space, if Pornhub finds a way to convince users to cough up cash every month, it will pose an instructive model for the rest of the digital content industry.

  Decriminalising Britain's sex industry would protect women...

New Institute of Economic Affairs paper identifies the benefits of decriminalising Britain's sex industry
Link Here

supply and desire The sex industry should be fully decriminalised, as all attempts to regulate prostitution are ineffective, ill-informed and a waste of public money.

The demand for commercial and professional sexual entertainment is growing steadily world-wide, as economic growth drives demand for luxuries, the internet creates new meeting places for sexual encounters (both amateur and professional), and globalisation makes sexual markets international in scope. Recreational and non-marital sexuality is becoming just as important as reproductive and marital sexuality, and the distinction between amateur and professional sexual encounters is becoming increasingly blurred.

In a new report for the Institute of Economic Affairs, leading academic Catherine Hakim identifies large and continuing differences between male and female perspectives on sexuality, finding that they are pervasive in all cultures, even in Scandinavia. Male sexual desire is manifested at least twice as often as female desire, with the gap growing over time. Given this sexual deficit among men, it is no surprise that men are the main customers for commercial sexual entertainment, and that sex workers, both male and female, cater to men almost exclusively.

Dispelling the feminist myth

  • Sex surveys around the world show a substantial gap in sexual desire and motivation between men and women. This cannot be dismissed as an outdated patriarchal myth as argued by some feminists.

  • Several factors suggest that the male sexual deficit will not disappear, and is even growing in the 21st century. Women's increasing economic independence allows them to withdraw from sexual markets and relationships that they perceive to offer unfair bargains, especially if they already have enough children, or do not want any. Changes in national sex ratios towards a numerical surplus of men also help women to reset the rules in their own favour in developed societies.

  • Male demand for sexual entertainments of all kinds is thus growing, and ineradicable.

Decriminalisation will lead to better outcomes for women

  • A key objection to the sex industry is that it damages women and that the presence of pornography, lap-dancing and prostitution in a country promotes rape and other violence against women. However, all available evidence points in the direction of prostitution and erotic entertainments having no noxious psychological or social effects, and they may even help to reduce sexual crime rates.

  • Whilst it is perfectly legal to sell sexual services, any third-party involvement is not. This serves to criminalise the industry and brothels, not only preventing girls working together in a flat for their mutual protection, but also stopping anyone from lawfully supplying services to a sex worker or even renting a flat to them.

  • Countries that criminalise buyers (such as Sweden), simply push demand abroad to countries with a more sex-positive culture. Policies that criminalise sellers directly, or criminalise third parties who supply them with services, simply push the sex industry underground, increasing the risks for sex workers.

Conclusion

  • The commercial sex industry is impervious to prohibitions and cannot be eliminated. It is estimated to be worth over four billion pounds to the British economy alone. It should be completely decriminalised.

Commenting on the paper's release, its author Catherine Hakim, said:

Internet dating has fundamentally changed meet markets and sex lives in the last three decades. Laws on prostitution are now outdated, misinformed and redundant. The very concept of prostitution is no longer workable in today's fluid sexual markets, where anyone can meet anyone, on whatever terms they choose. Decriminalisation is the only workable way forward. The proposal to copy Sweden and criminalise customers in the sex trade is a complete waste of public money, unforgiveable in a time of austerity.

Another Windows 10 warning as it searches through your best porn pics and displays them to all as a screen saver
Link Here  full story: Microsoft Snooping...Microsoft’s Windows 10 is a privacy nightmare
windows 10 logo One Reddit poster was in for a nasty surprise after he installed Windows 10 and woke up the next day to discover pictures from his porn collection scrolling across his desktop.

Those who have used Windows Phone will be familiar with their photos appearing in the scrolling tiles on the phone's home screen, but those who are new to Windows 10 might not be prepared for the exposure the operating system will give their snaps.

Redditor FalloutBoS posted his warning:

Loaded up WIN 10 last night and left it on to do its thing. Woke up to wife asking why I set it to rotate all my porn images right on the desk top view. I have no idea how to shut that feature off and that computer is staying shut down until I do. Free windows and a free trip to the doghouse. Thanks Microsoft!!!

Don't make my mistake, keep your private pictures out of My Pictures, no matter how deep you hide them in sub folders.
