For my first post I’m not going to repeat a spot of by now familiar arguments, just say that I hope that most of you reading this have replied to the consultation on Scotland’s proposed criminalisation of the purchase of sex. This is a bad law, framed by people who have a narrow understanding of the sex industry and probably think it should only be done in the dark and with your pyjamas on. Everyone knows what’s good for sex workers even without asking them. There are battles still to be fought. Let’s prepare for them. Remember this is not just about so-called ‘prostitutes’ All loosely framed laws are subject to function creep and a whole lot of other consensual sexual activity will be caught in the net. The police were kicked out of our bedrooms a few decades ago. Let’s keep them out.
