I have heard of many ways that councils have tried to attack the sex industry. In Scotland, they are doing everything the can to close down proper massage parlours, and therefore forcing the working girls onto the street. Across the Irish Sea, the Northern Irish Assembly looks like it is going to make it illegal to buy sex, and in doing so, push the industry underground. However, this tactic coming from Australia blew my mind.
The Best Job in the World?
A Sydney council are using a man called ‘John’ to go around massage parlours to have sex with the girls there, to prove that they will have sex for money.
The 60 year old, quite unsurprisingly, enjoys his job rather a lot.
’m sure plenty of fellas would be a bit envious of how I’m earning a bit of pocket money from time to time. But I’m being paid to do something most people pay good money for. More often than not though, it’s just a handjob. It’s not your typical nine-to-five, Monday-to-Friday job. There are no time constraints, and there’s never been a stage where I’ve felt threatened or worried about my safety.
OK, my mind is already going in eight different directions here. How the hell does a job opening like this come up? Well, it seems that Hornsby Council lost a court battle with a massage parlour that cost them $100,000. Apparently they never had enough evidence sexual activity went on in the establishment. Therefore, John comes along these days, gets his hand-job ,and then rats the sex workers out.
It really does sound like the best job ever. John only sees prostitutes once every three weeks. One suspects that others would be doing it much more often.
One question that sprang to mind is ‘how the hell do you apply for that job?’ I hardly think that position is going to be found in the job section of your local paper. I can just imagine 1000’s of applicants if it did.
Now this all sounds pretty funny. It seems like heaven for guys to go round sleeping with prostitutes, and getting paid for the privilege. However, call me Captain Killjoy, but I have got a few issues with this. one.
This guy may be having a field day, having sex with the girls, and then giving his feedback to the authorities. However, the girls should not be having some guy sleeping with them as a trick to get them into trouble. Surely that is sexual fraud?
To me, this smacks of him treating women as meat. The plan is to stop women having sex for money because it is damaging for them, by having sex with them. You really couldn’t make it up.
I doubt this guy has even thought of it on this level. He just sees it has getting his oats. However, I can see him in court at some point; I kid you not
However disgraceful this is, when you scratch the surface, I could use this idea for good. I could get paid to go around, sleeping with escorts, marking them, helping rate all the escorts in the country, and letting everyone know who the best of the best are.
If anyone thinks this is a good idea, contact me. I will stop writing blogs immediately!
