1 In 20 Students Works In The Adult Industry Claims Survey

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-32068673

More than a fifth of students have thought about being involved in the sex industry, according to a major research project.

About 6,750 students from across the UK took part in an online study by Swansea University.

It claims nearly 5% of them had actually worked in the sex industry and male students were more likely to become involved than women.

Work ranged from stripping, phone sex chat, erotic dancing to prostitution.

It included escort work but also work, which did not involve direct contact, such as webcam work and glamour modelling.

The first time 'Jenny' was paid for sex, she was 18.

It was in a stranger's car, in a lay-by.

Around a year later, as a university student, she decided to "take it seriously" and signed up for an escort website.

Now 22 years old, Jenny still chooses to earn a living by having sex with strangers, but she says she is "always on her guard" whenever she is with a client.

I wonder if the numbers are increasing because of student fees?

Like I said, as machines take over jobs, the oldest (first) profession in the world will become the last profession, too.

Well, till we create sex dolls that perfectly mimic reality.

All of existence makes me anxious, from the tiniest fly to the mysteries of the Incarnation. Just to give you an idea of a typical day.

Thanks for watching the new episode! We throw ourselves into futile, inconsequential pursuits because we have not learned to love ourselves.

My selfies are such that they will only be properly understood after my death. This too is my penance.

Depression is my nature, that is true, but thanks be to the power who nevertheless also gave me this consolation: great makeup & hair.

It should be properly legalised, to be honest - with licensed brothels etc. I don't see what the problem is.

Fiat money.

Prostitution is legal provided it is not "organised" i.e. its illegal to take a cut of someone elses earnings or for multiple people to operate out of the same residence. Its also illegal to "solicit" but not illegal to offer services.

Er, right. Even forgetting my moral and philosophical objections to the government licencing and regulating every aspect of private life; do you really think inspectors from the council are going to create a good night out?

Doesn't it work in Germany/Belgium (I think)/Australia etc? How would an inspector get in the way of you enjoying a paid-for night with the girl of your choice?

i have this terrible vision of some clipboard-wielding nonentity from the local council hovering over these people while in the act,and asking them a lot of box-ticking type questions about their encounter,in order to ascertain the level of business rate that should be levied.

Don't forget the mandatory hi-vis, ear defenders and goggles. You can't be too careful!

I call bull excrement on that survey.

There are roughly 2.3 million students in the UK. If we assume that the survey is representative of all universities, then we're looking at 115,000 students working in the adult industry - and that's just the students. So multiply that number several times to get the total of all people involved in the adult industry.

I find it hard to believe that so many people are involved in 'personal services'.
