Hypocrisy rages whenever sex is the subject.

The mass influx of immigrants into the sex trade highlights less sexual exploitation as the developed world's economic exploitation which grinds the majority into poverty and sets so many in search of a living at any cost.

Poorly paid workers sweat their lives away under inhuman conditions in so many industries across the world, the sex trade is but one.

Our complicated approach to sexuality means that while we still haven't ensured our children receive proper sex education, the rich world becomes ever more sexually explicit.

Videos, magazines, songs and fashion are deliberately and provocatively sexual, yet Janice Turner suggests payment for sex is the next PC avenue for attention. 
It is, but not as she argues.

Exploitation, intolerable working conditions and health and safety issues must be improved in every industry until they reach acceptable standards.

For this to happen, the sex industry must be legalised and brought under the structures of accountability that govern all others. 
Driving the sex industry further underground is the greatest hypocrisy.

It allows the big commercial players to continue to profit out of their use of sex and it means that men will continue to pay for sex, but 'legitimately' by funding a night out,  drinks at the nightclub, the dating meal or whatever other way they can manoeuvre their way into gaining a woman's consent for sex.

No matter for the PC brigade, that most of these transient casual sexual encounters are more damaging emotionally and psychologically to both genders, than the more honest and respectful exchange involved in properly monitored prostitution.
