Is it surprising that this research published on line a few years ago and which soon is to be a book yet again confirms that New Zealand since decriminalisation is the safest place for sex workers to work.
One more piece of research to add to the lengthy list that confirms what should be basic common sense. If you criminalise an industry then you will create opportunities for criminals to abuse both workers and clients. You also create an atmosphere in which sex workers are isolated from society and fearful of the police who should be there to protect them.
I hope this new piece of evidence is also presented to the new British government along with all the other reams of evidence that exists in the hope that they look again at the laws surrounding the selling of sexual services by consensual adults to other consenting adults.
