Did the world flip over twice or what?

Anyway, COVID 19 means a lot of sex workers now have no income AT ALL, and Ruhama were, apparently, too busy demonising clients to use their inexplicable amount of political influence to ensure provisions for the self employed would cover *ALL* sexworkers (they may be able to get it, but they may have to tell porkies, no guarantees and it will not cover rent or kids) - so if you have some spare money you know where to put it.

It reconfirms my view that, looking at the last 100 odd years of freedom, the state got its freedom, but also reduced the personal freedoms of millions of us.

So the 2017 law isn't a huge surprise, but more suited to 1617.

The state now has passport controls, cctv, airlines info, the internet, all the tools needed to find and prosecute bad guy traffickers. If lots of trafficking is going on, and nobody is being prosecuted, you'd assume that bribes are being paid all over the place. But there's no proof of that either.

We can expect the "high level" investigation to come up with all the answers, but as it is sponsored by the Dept of Justice it won't criticise the Dept., will it?

And at the back of it all, many of the "clients" will be lonely guys from abroad working here for a foreign corp, business that the state and IDA has bust a gut to encourage. The "ladies" from abroad are only following the same path of opportunity here.

Nobody is saying that a guy at google seconded from Paris has been trafficked here against his will, are they? Yet without the surrounding help from google he would not be working here.
Good point , we are banking our economy on the I.T sector which men are better at, those immigrants are well paid but not getting sex. Women immigrants will want to make money too and if young and pretty then working in the sex industry is an obvious choice. We should be upfront about such things.

In this time of great difficulty for us all and it is particularly hard for some workers and professionals in some sectors including sex workers -

The Sex Workers Alliance of Ireland (SWAI) have set up a hardship fund for sex workers and you can anonymously donate if you wish at -

Ruhama has released another report looking for more "resources" supposedly to help sex workers leave the industry.They say 90% of sex workers want to leave the industry, but don't because of "....Vulnerable sex workers have not been given the supports and resources they were promised – supports which could help them leave prostitution and dismantle the illegal sex trade...."


We all know that such resources would probably end up going to Ruhama, given the tens of millions that have gone to it over the past 28 yrs since it was established. Ruhama is arguably an industry in itself.

All these state sponsored charities are businesses first, building little empires around sound bites.

The general public doesn;t even have to give a damn, just 5 or so TDs who are scared of getting bad headlines. Then the snowball starts.

It's a cliché that many sex workers are from eastern europe. If every girl born there was given €30,000 a year from age 16 for doing anything or nothing, most would end up doing something else. But they're not. That's the solution, TDs and MEPs, get on with it.

Always a minority of women are very happy having lots of sex, and for them this is the ideal work.

But don't wait for the ruhamas to sell their houses to help the trafficked victims, this is about guilt-tripping a nation that likes to feel guilty about not a lot, and getting down on its knees to men in dresses. True freedom can only begin when we learn to stop believing these fantasists' fantasies.
