Success!

TUC Says NO to Pimps!

The TUC has voted resoundingly against a motion to decriminalise pimps and punters.

The motion was brought by train driver's union Aslef (95% male members), backed by the GMB, who had already been lobbied hard by the sex industry. Clearly getting the TUC to support the legitimising of the sex trade is a key goal of the industry.

This is despite the fact that the TUC's own Women's Conference support the diametrically opposite stance and call for the criminalising of pimps and punters as the only way to end the sex trade and all the abuse associated with it.

Congrats and thanks to all (including Nordic Model Now! who were busy talking and flyering ASLEF and TUC delegates).

BMA says NO to Pimps

We are thrilled that the BMA voted last week not to legitimise pimps and punters, rejecting a motion by Junior Doctors to 'fully decriminalise' the sex industry (which means decriminalising pimps, brothel keepers and punters as well as prostitutes).

Government to Age Restrict Internet Porn

Soon porn will no longer be 'for kids of all ages'.

Despite fierce lobbying from supporters of porn and 'extreme' liberalism the Government will finally age-restrict internet porn. Why? Perhaps because:

90% Porn shows Violence vs Women

10% 12/13 Year Olds Addicted to Porn

Mayor’s Vision for a Safe, Healthy City?

The Mayor has recently consulted on his strategy for a Diverse, Inclusive, Safe & Healthy City - with not a mention of the Sex Trade to be found.

Read our response where we ask:

  • Why is there no mention of London’s prolific, deeply damaging sex trade, from massage parlours to strip clubs?
  • Why a commitment to tackle the demand for prostitution by pervious Mayor, Boris Johnson, has been written out of Policing Strategies?
  • And why does TfL allow the Metro and ES, distributed all over the London transport network, to advertise the sex industry?

Protest at Porn Awards

It was great to join protesters outside the 'Adult Industry' (aka porn) Awards on Tues night at Leicester Square. A surprising number of people, including many men, came up to us to find out what was going on and where genuinely supportive of our concerns.

The fact that the awards had categories like 'MILF' and 'GILF' of The Year rather helped make the case for us (i.e. 'Mother I'd Like to F***' and 'Grandmother I'd Like to F***')
