Last nights episode of Prime Time on RTÉ was a report by Paul Maguire on those who profit from organised prostitution in Ireland.
A female member of the production crew placed an ad online offering ‘escort’ services and began receiving calls within minutes. They received over 350 calls and text messages in a 5 day period from men looking for sex.
It’s almost surreal for me to see that the society I grew up in has such a huge demand for prostitution. I wonder if it would be any different if the Johns were to know how the industry is run by career criminals. Does empathy exist within the market or are the paying customers willing to turn a blind eye so long as whatever misery there may be isn’t for them to bear?
