French bill fines men who buy sex

prostitute

A new bill introduced by the French socialist government would fine prostitution customers thousands of dollars.

Those found guilty would pay 1,500 euros ($2000), doubled for repeat offences.

In addition, customers would have to take an “awareness” course on the harms of prostitution, similar to ones on the dangers of drink-driving given to traffic offenders.

The bill also targets pimps – since France’s legal sex trade has led to soaring rates of sex trafficking.  There are an estimated 20,000 prostitutes in France, 90% of them of foreign origin. 

A BBC report (11/11/13) said the bill had a good chance of passing, despite strong opposition from prostitute collectives – along with men who have signed a “Hands off my tart!” petition.

SA brothel bill will fail

SA Labor MP Steph Key’s Decriminalisation of Sex Work bill is the opposite of the French legislation. 

It would decriminalise almost all forms of prostitution.  Pimping, home brothels, street walking and gutter crawling would all be legal. 

The bill’s drastic provisions have not been reported in the mainstream media, but the bill cannot pass.  Ms Key has conceded that a vote is not possible before the end of the current parliament.
