Irish Debate on the Criminalisation of Buying Sex – Tonight With Vincent Browne

The episode of Tonight with Vincent Browne broadcast on January 30th 2013 is, sadly, no longer available on the TV3 website.

On the show, there was a debate concerning the proposed legislation to criminalise the buying of sex in Ireland and an interview with an Irish woman who is a former sex worker.

“Being in prostitution and being threatened goes hand in hand… if they don’t threaten you and make you afraid… they’re not going to get what they want out of you.”

When asked how working as a prostitute made her feel, she said ” like a toilet, where men came in, emptied themselves and left.” She told herself it was okay for feel that way because she would go home to her partner (who lived off her earnings) and receive praise for earning more money.
