Outrage after Welsh Government offers sex industry career advice
Share This Article:
Wales' First Minister Carwyn Jones has launched an investigation into the careers guidance offered on the Business Wales site, which until very recently included advice for hopefuls eager to enter into the sex industry. Recommendations included setting up an escort service catering for businessmen, and offers of earning up to £48,000 a year by working as a stripper. Politicians, such as Jocelyn Davies of Plaid Cymru, have been quick to judge the site and the guidance offered: “Stripping is degrading for women and the Welsh Government should not be promoting the view that sexually exploitative work is an acceptable career.” This moral outrage is understandable, given of course that we as a society wholly condemn the sex industry as immoral. Going to a strip bar for example has never been viewed as a rite of passage and prostitution certainly has never been tacitly accepted or viewed as entertainment in TV shows, blogs or novels or even glamourised… Despite the undeniably distasteful nature of stripping and prostitution, assuming that clientele have to view their supplier as a mere body or object, we should first admit that we ourselves have a very troubled relationship with the sex industry.
