While brothels are legal in the UK However, that does not mean that anyone can’t sell sexual sex. escort are any establishment where more than one person is engaged in prostitution, usually in exchange for money. A television show titled A Very British Brothel aired earlier in the year, and showed the darker side of the industry.

The management of a brothel’s business has been punished with steep fines

The Government has seen fit to implement tougher laws on brothels. The Greiner Liberal government increased the severity of the law on solicitation in 1988 in response to public pressure. The new laws will be implemented in stages. Warnings and cautions are included. A prosecution is more likely in the most serious of incidents.

The new laws were based on section 33 of 1956’s Sexual Offences Act. It is illegal to run or manage brothels. The penalties will be more severe under the new laws.

Trafficked women work in brothels

Brothels are places where women who are trafficked provide commercial sex for large numbers of men every day. These women are typically Latin American in origin, however, they aren’t exclusively. They are recruited by traffickers who pretend to be boyfriends or falsely offer jobs. Traffickers also focus on women who are in financial difficulties.

Trafficking is a serious problem worldwide. Many victims have no other alternative but to perform sexual acts to earn money. They are not educated and are often denied job opportunities, which is why they turn into prostitution to support their families. In brothels, women are confined to their homes and are required to perform sexual activities to earn money.

Legalization of sex work in the Netherlands

In the Netherlands the legalisation of sexual work is a relatively new development. The Dutch authorities allowed brothels to operate in the year 2000. They did so in the hope of making brothel owners more accountable. The new law makes sexual work a legitimate occupation and sex-related workers have the same rights as other workers. Since 2011 they also have to pay taxes on their earnings.

The Dutch government’s goal was to improve the conditions of prostitutes and fight human trafficking. However, after twenty years it is now clear that the policy has failed. Even the mayor of Amsterdam has acknowledged that the red light district is unsustainable.
