Brothels in the UK and the Ipswich Murders

Brothels in the UK and the Ipswich Murders

The UK has had brothels for centuries. These establishments offer paid sex, in a clean hygiene-friendly environment. A lot of these establishments employ women who were trafficked. Brothels are also the site of murders, like the one in Ipswich which occurred in the latter part of the 18th century. Prostitution in the UK is a problem that affects both women and men.

Prostitution in private is not a crime

The police have a duty to play when it comes to combating prostitution. They focus on prosecution of those who are involved in prostitution, and work alongside other agencies to find alternatives to prostitution. The CPS also supports those who are victims of prostitution by working to find ways to stay out of the business. Prostitution is often seen as a type of abuse of power. escorts tend to dominate the majority of businesses and sellers.

In the UK It is illegal to pay for prostitutes in private brothels. The Home Office announced that it will review the laws currently in place regarding prostitution. This includes making it illegal to pay a prostitute in brothel facilities, and increasing penalties for keeping brothels that are used to provide prostitution.

Safe and legal paid-for sex in a clean and safe environment

Prostitution is illegal in the UK. A new law has been adopted by the government of the United Kingdom that prohibits the sale of prostitutes. However, the law does nothing to stop brothel owners from hiring women. A recent motion in the European Parliament calls for member countries to adopt similar legislation.

The UK government is looking at legislation to criminalize the purchase of sexual. The European Parliament is supporting radical feminists, religious organisations, and politicians by promoting a ‘Nordic” model. This is an obvious way to crack down on prostitution. However the UK appears to be following the trend and it’s possible that it won’t be too far away.

Ipswich serial murders

The Ipswich serial murders have garnered a lot of media attention. The case is more sensational than the Peter Sutcliffe serial murders in which a man killed 13 women and injured seven others in a West Yorkshire brothel. While some of the media coverage may jeopardize a fair trial however, the case has provoked debates on the laws that regulate prostitution. There were several different places where bodies were discovered.

The victims of the Wright murders were all women. Annette Wright was the first victim. Her body was found in a cruciform place in the woods close to Nacton. The body was discovered in December and was later discovered to be pregnant.

Legalisation of sex-related work in the UK

UK law makes it illegal to perform prostitution as well as engage in sex work in brothels. The current Home Affairs Minister the Dame Diana Johnson, proposed a bill to legalize both. The bill was justified with the help of testimonies from those who have been victims of sexual trafficking. Although the bill is a step in the right direction but it perpetuates the negative stigma that sex work can be dirty and that workers are forced to do this work.

Many of the laws that controlled prostitution were replaced by the Policing and Crime Act 2009. Prostitution in brothels continues to be illegal, however working as an outcall escort or prostitute for profit is not. It is also illegal in the UK to engage in street prostitution.
