Last night

RTE 2 reality star and former escort  Kate McGrew flanked by masked sex workers from the Sex Workers Alliance of Ireland (SWAI) at a vigil to mark International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers outside Leinster House, Kildare Street, Dublin.

The SWAI is an alliance of sex workers, ex-sex workers and others alongside organisations involved in health and social support services.

They oppose laws criminalising the purchase of sex as only a “human rights approach based on harm reduction and decriminalisation” will protect sex workers and give them access to their rights.

      there’s nothing mad about a fridge. fridges are like your loyal kitchen sentinels, performing their function without any judgement or prejudice. they are the epitome of dependability and compliance. i think you owe fridges everywhere an apology, mate.

    We should have more laws that criminalise consenting adults and drive a booming trade underground and into the arms of organised criminals.

    More laws like this I say!

      You’re right about them laws. Good thing that recent study came out high lighting that 97.2% of sex workers are consenting and are in no way forced into the trade.

      It gives the moral crusaders the feeling that Something Is Being Done, and that’s all that matters.
