Sex workers report on the latest proposed law to criminalise men and endanger women

Full story: Criminalising Paying for Sex in England and Wales...A selfish campaign to lock up men

Paying for sex could become a criminal offence in England and Wales if parliament approves a new private menbers bill which has been put forward by Diana Johnson, Labour MP for Kingston upon Hull North. Johnson has put the bill forward in a bid to protect women from potential sexual exploitation and trafficking, but the proposal could have the opposite effect.

The bill is opposed by sex workers and groups including the Royal College of Nursing, Amnesty International and many harm reduction and women's rights charities. It's argued that those calling for criminalisation are driven by ideology and not evidence, and sadly sex workers are often removed from the conversation in the hallowed halls of parliament.

Currently in the UK a lot of the work is already criminalised. You can sell sex, but you can't solicit it in a public place, and you essentially have to work alone because of laws against running brothels -- two prostitutes working together constitute a brothel in the eyes of the law.

Johnson's bill would impose what is known as the Nordic model. Sweden's 1999 legislation -- which decriminalises the seller of sex and criminalises the client -- is often dubbed as a 'progressive' solution to prostitution and is built on a feminist definition of prostitution as a form of male violence against women. To radical liberal feminists, what's not to like -- punish the men who buy sex in this patriarchal world. The Nordic model is legislated in Norway, Iceland, Canada, France, Sweden and Northern Ireland in a bid to reduce demand and ultimately abolish the trade.

But the idea of the model is misleading and in fact evidence shows it has led to more violence against prostitutes in all of these countries. Attacks against sex workers in Ireland alone have risen by 92%, since the introduction of the model in March 2017.

The bill had its first reading in the House of Commons on 9th December 2020 and was originally given a 2nd reading date of 21st of January 2021 but this didn't occur. The wording of the bill hasn't been published and the only information published so far is the description:

A Bill to criminalise paying for sex; to decriminalise selling sex; to create offences relating to enabling or profiting from another person's sexual exploitation; to make associated provision about sexual exploitation online; to make provision for support services for victims of sexual exploitation; and for connected purposes.

Full story: Internet Censorship in Thailand...Thailand implements mass website blocking
The miserable Thai Government, through the acting Minister of Digital Economy and Society, has confirmed that popular adult website Pornhub will stay blocked in Thailand, giving the reason that the website allegedly encourages poor moral standpoints and can affect youth in a negative manner,

Itthipol Khunplume, the current Minister of Culture (who was previously the Mayor of Pattaya, which allegedly has many adult entertainment-oriented businesses), made the statement to the Associated Thai press.

This decision also has banned hundreds of other prominent adult websites which, according to the Thai Government, are obscene and conflict with good morals for upstanding citizens.

Obscenely inconsiderate...

Thailand warns its sex workers that going online during the covid crisis may result in prosecution for 'obcenity'


Link Here22nd February 2021
As more Thais have opened OnlyFans accounts to support themselves during the pandemic, legal experts in the Southeast Asian kingdom are warning about the uncertain status of the content produced given the country's notoriously harsh obscenity laws.

The Bangkok Post recently published a profile of local people who had entered sex work for the first time during the pandemic, after opening an account on the popular premium service.

But in Thailand, the report explained, publishing obscene content online is punishable by up to five years imprisonment, a B100,000 (£2500) fine, or both. Furthermore, as pornography is considered by law to be a disruption to peace in society, anyone can file a complaint to snitch on or settle scores with people they don't like.

The newspaper spoke with legal expert Natchapol Jittirat, a lecturer at Chulalongkorn University's Faculty of Law, who said adult content creators cannot demand protection under the law when their photos and videos are unlawfully disseminated by others, as under Thai laws, the content is considered 'obscene' material.

And although some people may consider OnlyFans a private space, Jittirat opined that the courts will still consider it to be a public space, as the platform can be easily accessible by anyone with access to the internet. If they want to be safe from legal action, they will have to do it outside the Thai courts' jurisdiction and the content must not have any consequences in the kingdom.
