Iea Legalise Prostitution - Men Want It More Then Women

Recommended Posts

http://www.iea.org.uk/publications/research/supply-and-desire-sexuality-and-the-sex-industry-in-the-21st-century

Summary:

New evidence from international sex surveys show large and continuing differences between male and female perspectives on sexuality in all cultures. Male sexual desire is manifested at least twice as often as female desire, and men would like to have sex twice as often as women. This gap in sexual desire between men and women is growing over time and cannot be dismissed as an out-dated patriarchal myth as argued by some feminists.

The sexual deficit among (heterosexual) men helps to explain many puzzles, including why men are the principal customers for commercial sexual entertainments of all kinds. It is no surprise that sex workers (male and female) cater to men almost exclusively. Male demand for sex invariably outstrips female demand.

Demand for commercial sex is therefore inevitable and the sex industry is likely to continue to flourish in the 21st century. Not only does male demand for sexual activity greatly outstrip non-commercial female supply, but economic growth, globalisation and the Internet facilitate access to the world’s oldest profession.

Several factors suggest that the male sex deficit will not disappear, and might even grow in the 21st century. Women’s increasing economic independence allows them to withdraw from sexual markets and relationships that they perceive to offer unfair bargains, especially if they already have enough children or do not want any. Changes in national sex ratios towards a numerical surplus of men helps women to reset the rules in their own favour in developed societies.

A key objection to the sex industry is that it damages women and that the presence of porn, lap-dancing and prostitution in a country promotes rape and other violence against women. However, although there are too few rigorous studies to draw definitive conclusions, all the available evidence points in the direction of prostitution and erotic entertainments having no noxious psychological or social effects, and they may even help to reduce sexual crime rates.

In many countries, including Britain, it is perfectly legal to sell sexual services; however any third-party involvement is illegal. The aim is to prevent exploitation by pimps or madams. The effect is to criminalise the industry and brothels, to prevent girls working together in a flat for their mutual protection, to prevent anyone from lawfully supplying services to a sex worker or even rent a flat to them.

The commercial sex industry is impervious to prohibitions and cannot be eliminated. Countries that criminalise buyers (such as Sweden) simply push demand abroad to countries with a more sex-positive culture. Policies that criminalise sellers directly, or criminalise third parties who supply them with services, simply push the sex industry underground, increasing risks for sex workers. The sex industry is estimated to be worth over four billion pounds to the British economy. It should be completely decriminalised.

Will the lure of boosting GDP and tax revenues prove too great to resist?

Prositution is legal in the UK. But all the activities around it (soliciting, pimping, allowing a property to be used, etc.,) aren't.

Plus the clusterf@ck of strict liability if you happen to have sex with a trafficked woman (no matter how much due diligence you do)

It would be interesting to see what the effect on male/female relations would be if men could easily, and reasonably cheaply, have sex with very attractive women.

I think most men still want the 'girlfriend experience' in real life, rather than just anonymous sex. If you read forums by so called 'Pick Up Artists,' there is an almost irrational fear of prostitution amongst its practitioners. I read about one 'PUA' who 'gamed' a woman only to find out she was a prostitute - and he 'made his excuses and left'. But the end result (casual sex) would have been the same. So a lot of men must want something more than just sex - even if it's just validation and ego-boosts, which cannot be gained through payment.

I would imagine that cheaply available attractive prostitutes would appeal more to divorced men in middle age who are less likely to want to go back into the dating/marriage game, hence the popularity of places like Thailand for them.

I agree, most men want a proper girlfriend/wife who actually wants to be with them and who they get on with. This can be hard to find however!

I wonder if legalized prostitution would remove the need to spend evenings pursuing women who you're only interested in because you fancy some sex - it would be a more efficient way to take care of that need every now and then.

I wonder if that would change though if the stigma of paying disappeared.

After all, it wasn't that long ago that doing online dating, and before that dating agencies, was regarded as a bit sad and only for the undateable. Now it is completely mainstream.

Change it up a gear again - and consider how advances in technology might make even paying prostitutes unnecessary - and I think we could have a new sexual revolution on our hands.

I agree both genders probably still like the idea of romantic love, and feeling that someone else out there likes them enough to bump uglies occasionally/watch their back during life's ups and downs. But separating out possibly differing sexual needs from the relationship could be liberating for both.

'Normal' women would have to very quickly step up their game. Ordinary/ugly/fat women will be dead in the water.

This is different from sex. Men compartmentalise.

Nearly all men would like a 'proper girlfriend', but that has nothing to do with lots of men also wanting to use prostitutes to deal with a physical need.

Sex is just not the same as wanting a girlfriend.

Ask your mate who got married; he'd be target market!

I agree with all of the above, although I think an increasing amount of women 'compartmentalize' too these days. And with that in mind, dealing with a physical need via someone who is a pro, and is regularly tested, and is attractive, seems a better bet than spending time and money trying to pork some drunk woman you meet in a nightclub. Especially with rape accusations and all that; I don't know many people but I know of two second-hand stories where girls got buyers remorse and tried to claim they'd been raped - in one instance the bloke was saved by a CCTV camera clearly showing the girl all-over him and dry humping him in the street. Classy.

Some PUAs are into 'shoring', which is banging a prozzie for free.

A really distasteful aspect to the PUA game are the guys that lead on non sex worker girls in poor countries by letting them believe that they are looking for a wife. Pump and dump. Loss of virginity without marriage in some countries makes life difficult for the girl. To be an unmarried mother is virtually life over. Kid to look after and no prospect of ever getting married. Shameful behaviour and the same scumbag guys berate whoremongers.

Anyone with experience of Australia or Germany? Would be interesting to know the attitude of women towards men in a 1st world country where pay for play is legal.

Just to repeat what has already been said above. It is legal in the UK.

Yeah, it's just so morally frowned upon that no man would publicly admit it for fear of being shunned by society.

I don't see how an overt contract to pay for sex with a willing participant is morally more wrong than getting a girl drunk/pursuing drunk girls in the hope that it will lower her inhibitions and get you a shag.

The recommended sale price is 51p so he would be running at a loss.

Multipacks. Yes your not allowed to resell them, but the criminal aspect of the Mars bar will only arouse them more. Birds love a bad boy.

Well I dunno, but Johnny has a point. Hoover tried giving away air tickets that were worth more than the hoover. I don't have an MBA either, BTW.

If she had been born later, she could have had bigger sized Mars bars.
