Greetings from The Slave Detective…
In the Interest of a Balanced Argument
There are many that discuss Prostitution and Human trafficking in the same breath. Those that read my blogs (currently 17,628 of you) will know that many of my posts are about this very subject.
One of my readers sent me this article.
Before you read it though consider this. When I, in my line of duty, entered brothels in the UK I rarely found an english speaking sex worker. The Pimps and madams who ran the brothels obviously spoke very well. I doubt many of the working girls in this article are ones who lobby for change!
Melissa is also based in the USA which have totally different problems to those in the UK.
Melissa Gira Grant was one of the first webcam girls, before becoming a journalist. She talks to Liz Hoggard about the proposed changes to the UK’s prostitution laws.
I Subject Myself to Q&A’s
I often get requests to be interviewed or persons doing their post-graduate studies wish me to answer questions.
Those that know me or read my blog know that what I am looking to do is highlight the plight of persons trafficked. Educate the masses.
There are many grey areas in the field of Human Trafficking. There are many factors that feature in how trafficking happens and why. I do not profess to have all the answers but I will be subjecting (if this is the right word) myself to a radio interview on the 26th March. I belive this is a live event so no doubt there will be more tricky questions for me.
The Growing Trend of Sex Tourist.
In my 200th Blog I ask:-
What drives a man to consider flying to a another country, engage in sexual acts with children in an attempt to usurp the law?
I’m not sure if this is a growing trend or it has always been lingering in the shadows of human deprivation.
In the link above a teacher was stopped flying to Belize to have sex with a 13yr old and a 15yr old girl.
It would have been his 10th trip to the country since June 2011.
Belize refused Thompson entry, however, and when he returned to Miami, he was arrested on a charge of enticing a minor for sex. He could face up to life in prison if convicted. He was initially stopped on his way out of The USA but no evidence could be gained of any offences.
