Midnight Sex Talk – Prostitution and the New UK Laws
There’s been a lot going on with our sex laws recently here in the UK. As with the abortion debate, where sex work is concerned there’s the usual forest of moral panic to negotiate, before you get anywhere near the people who actually do it, or who work with those who do. And media stereotypes abound – there’s either the desperate drug addict working the street, Miss Whiplash of the suburbs, or the middle class girl who’s hoping to get a book deal out of it.
However, whatever happens in parliament, no-one is going to stop selling sex, or paying for it, anytime soon.
In the studio we’ve got Jahnet DeLight to give us her take on it all, and we’ve got interviews with Ana Lopes of the International Union of Sex Workers and Cari Mitchell of the English Collective of Prostitutes.
