France Set To Ban Prostitution; Pay Sex Workers & Get Heavy Fine

france to ban prostitution

April 7, 2016 – It Is Now Illegal To Hire Prostitutes For Sex As France Passes Anti-Prostitution Bill That Carries £1,200 Fine

A new bill has been passed in France to deal with anyone caught paying for sex.

64 out of 76 France MPs have approved a new legislation banning prostitution.

The France parliament started debating the controversial bill in 2013, but the final vote was delayed after several hearings owing to sharp divisions between the lower parliamentary chamber and the senate.

Anyone caught hiring sex workers will be fined and forced to attend classes on harms of prostitution.

There would be a €1,500 (£1,200) fine for a first offence, rising to €3,750 for a second, which would also be put on the person’s criminal record.

    Great moves. But can we really adopt this in Nigeria without first create jobs for the teeming youths graduating from high schools yearly to add to the unemployed ones already seeking for jobs many years after graduation without success?

    Am not trying to state here that prostitution should be lagalised or that its should be the next best way out of joblessness but I dare to say here that many prostitutes you see today are graduates. Reasons being circumstantial not that they really love what they are doing.

    So if we must adopt this France new system in Nigeria, that means we have to wait till maybe 2030 when I may be made the President, or wont you guys give me your votes when the time comes?
    My regime will make even the Angels want to come nationalized in Nigeria*wink

    Thumbs up! But can this be effectively legislated? In a world where mobile phones have taken the day, a phone call will always seal an appointment. And if you walk into a hotel with a woman to book an accomodation, who the hell could know for certain that she ain’t your girlfriend? Who could substantiate whether or not you would pay her money as soon as both of you have shut in yourselves in a brief, unholy privacy?

    Prostitues will ever exist in every given society, no matter how stringent their legislation, no matter how austere or religious they are.

    They are using the doctrine of supply and demand, the idea that if there is no demand then nobody to supply, i am afraid it will only lead to underground which then means more danger to the women they seek to protect. prostitution oldest profession of human race. Good luck with that.
