  • Safe Sex?

    (I wonder if this thread will get a lot of views )

    Having heard our Home Secretary defending the forthcoming legislation designed - she says - to protect unwilling prostitutes from exploitation, I'm wondering if the time has come when every packet of condoms should be sold with a free affidavit.

    For men who pay for sex with trafficked women, ignorance is no longer a defence | Society | The Guardian

    From the article: "Key facts

    · Men to be prosecuted if they pay for sex with women who are trafficked or under control of a pimp

    · Ignorance that woman was being controlled not to be a defence and conviction to carry hefty fine and criminal record

    · Men who knowingly pay for sex with trafficked women may face rape charges

    · First-time kerb crawlers face prosecution and naming and shaming"

    A question arises: Does that mean that if a woman has sex with me, she can be charged with rape, because she knew I support my wife financially? Surely it can't be easy to prove that money changed hands.

    Or is this a piece of sexually biased legislation?

    You couldn't make it up, could you. Good intentions, but not thought through.

    What about chemical castration for men like that? It would be good for pharmacy--we could dispense the drug and claim daily supervised consumption fees! (mind you that adds a whole new meaning to "daily pick-up"--groan)
