Brothels in the UK and the Ipswich Murders

The UK has had brothels for ages. These establishments provide sex in an environment that is clean and hygiene-conscious. Many of these establishments employ women who have been trafficked. Brothels have also been the sites of murders, like the one in Ipswich which occurred in the latter part of the 18th century. Prostitution is a problem in the UK is a concern for both men and women.

Prostitution in private isn’t a crime

In the fight against prostitution, the police could assist. They are focused on the prosecution of those who are responsible for prostitution and collaborate with other agencies to find alternatives to prostitution. The CPS assists those who are victims of prostitution , by working to find ways to get out of the business. The nature of prostitution is often one of abuse of power and men are the ones who control the majority of the sellers and businesses of sex.

It is against the law in the UK 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 for a prostitute to be paid in a brothel, and increasing the penalties for brothels that are used for prostitution.

Legal and safe paid-for-sex in a safe and hygienic environment

Prostitution is illegal in the UK. The UK government has passed a law that bans prostitution. But the law does not hinder the hiring of women by brothel owners. A recent motion in the European Parliament calls on member states to adopt similar legislation.

The UK government is also looking into legislation that would criminalize the purchase of sexual. A model based on the Nordic is being considered, and the European Parliament is promoting this by supporting radical feminists, religious organizations and politicians. This is a clear way to “crackdown” on prostitution. However it seems that the UK appears to be following the trend, and it may not be long before it happens.

Ipswich serial murders

The serial murders in Ipswich have received plenty of media attention. In certain ways, the incident is more dramatic than the Peter Sutcliffe murders, where a man brutally killed 13 women and injured seven others in a brothel in West Yorkshire. Although media coverage could compromise the fairness of the trial due to the lack of transparency the case has ignited debates about the laws that regulate prostitution. The bodies were discovered in a variety of places.

All of the victims of the Wright murders had been women. The first victim, Annette Wright, was found in a cruciform state in woodland near Nacton, and her body was asphyxiated. The body was discovered in December, and later found to be pregnant.

Legalisation of sex in the UK

Prostitution and sex-related work in brothels are both prohibited under UK legislation. The Home Affairs Minister of the moment the Dame Diana Johnson, proposed a bill to legalize both. The bill was justified using the testimony of victims of sexual trading. While the bill is a step in the right direction, it still perpetuates the stigma that sexual work is dirty and that workers are forced into this job.

Lichfield escorts and Crime Act 2009 replaced many of the laws that were previously in place to regulate prostitution. Although prostitution in brothels is illegal, it is now legal to be an escorte on outcall or prostitute for personal profit. In the UK it is also illegal to engage in street-prostitution.
