People with a lot of "first hand knowledge" probably don't use prostitutes.

Many people enjoy sex without emotional involvement. Just look at the number of 'one-night-stands' etc.

People? Or men?

Antisocial DIY people, depriving the professionals of income.

There will be lots of "unhappy prostitutes" from France that may even come to Zurich or Amsterdam.

You get paid to have sex. What's not to like?

. but unless this particular woman was prostituting herself against her own will, why should we feel pity?
I think it's OK to feel pity for a lot of people. I feel pity for people in shit jobs of all descriptions, even if they are there by choice.

I commend the woman described in the original post for demanding not to be treated as a victim of some sort. It's her chosen profession, so why should she feel bad about it?
People complain. It's a human thing. Everybody moans about their job sometimes, or about not being understood or about having it tough or any number of other things.

The sex with a prostitute is free, you pay to leave immediately afterwards

Why should this be a Friday thread? Human trafficking and the areas surrounding this is not a topic that I find funny.

Really, Odile has already provided you with a response.
Perhaps you should start your own "Paying for Sex in Switzerland Thread".

Might be very educational.

Re: Happy Prostitutes?

And here comes the moral cavalry riding (sic) over the horizon casting their goodness and shadows of well meaning spirit to the sinners who, since the beginning of biologically equipped humankind, have had the urge to get laid.

Some pay hookers, that's the cheap way, others take them home after the wedding and shell out for them for years. Humans being human.

Human trafficking is not the same thing as prostitution.

And human trafficking is illegal.

Re: Happy Prostitutes?

And human traffic doesn't only involve prostitution. Among many other everyday things, fruit/vegetable picking, and near my old hometown, furniture manufacture, also attracts people who are happy to exploit the vunerable.

If prostitution disappeared tomorrow, do you think those involved with human trafficking would just get an honest job?

Human trafficking = deplorable and contemptible act of enslaving other human being (sad)

Prostitution = consensual act to provide pleasure and service offered by human to human (it can be funny)

Re: Happy Prostitutes?

'Director Alice Russell's deft portrait of gender lines in the sex industry, featuring testimonies of men who have bought sex, mimed by women.'

It's a bit weird to watch but interesting.
