    Default Irish Sex Trade

    Just saw this on MSN News


    Ruhama reports on Irish sex trade

    An organisation which works with women involved in prostitution has expressed concern about the number of underage girls who are being lured into prostitution.

    An organisation which works with women involved in prostitution has warned that Ireland is now 'firmly enmeshed in the global sex trade'.

    Ruhama expressed concern about the number of underage girls who are being lured into prostitution, some as young as 15 years old.

    The organisation, which is marking its 20th anniversary, launched its Biennial Report for 2007 and 2008 today.

    Spokesperson Geraldine Rowley said the organisation has seen an increase in street-based prostitution among Irish women since the economic downturn and it is feared some women will enter into the trade due to poverty.

    Of the 341 women cared for by Ruhama between 2007 and 2008, less than 50% were Irish nationals.

    Most of the women trafficked into Ireland were originally from Eastern European countries and Nigeria.

    They were trafficked into Dublin, Cork and Belfast and moved around the country.

    'Covert sex trade'

    Speaking at the report launch, Ruhama Director Kathleen Fahy said prostitution was very visible on the streets of Dublin in 1989 but 'this has gradually changed over the years and today we are dealing with a predominantly indoor and more covert sex trade.'

    She says 'Ireland is now firmly enmeshed in the global sex trade bringing with it new problems and challenges not anticipated 20 years ago.'

    Technology has played a big role in the expansion of the sex trade and enabling operators and users to keep a low profile - she says it has also impacted on their ability to access women as they too are less visible on our streets today.

    Despite all the media attention given to prostitution, Ruhama says they generally find a lack of understanding by many people in regard to the women involved and the structure in which they operate.

    Ms Fahy highlighted the fact that many women involved in prostitution are controlled by criminals.

    'These criminals now operate in a hidden world and use modern technology to control and market the women. Of the 341 women we assisted in the past two years, 167 were street based, less than 50% - and this of course represents the new trend of invisibility for the women'.

    Comments anyone?
    The Truth is out there.

    This is a very sensitive issue, If it is true that there are mafias, Ireland and worldwide. And thanks to blackmail and extortion exploit women against their will to do what they do.

    But for the solution to this problem is very important the cooperation of customers, if a person sees the minimum rarity in a place, its moral obligation to denounce, but this does not happen because the client obviously requires discretion, and know whether there is some way to report anonymously, yes in spain.

    But it is important that everyone should contribute what we can.

    Maybe I am naive, but I would assume that the majority of escorts who advertise as independent are doing it of their own free will and are not tied in with pimps or criminal elements.

    Hmm, how many of us here would even sleep with a 15 year old. We'd be asking the ESCORT for i.d, not the other way round. And sometimes these articles are full of crap too. YES, women are lured into the trade, by THEMSELVES, NOT pimps. It's called money and they don't need a pimp to encourage them to get into it.

    Scare tactics, what's new.

    manybe this problem has to come from a different angle, no matter how you see it, this trade will never stop, better take it out of the hands of pimps and make legal, so health and the girls safety come first, a side line to this is what is scary, is the number of adds in london for bareback at 89 quid an hour

    I so wish that was true
    Yes, the numbers may be inaccurate, but there are girls around who are controlled by someone.

    I have recently seen a review where someone was saying he got a strange feeling seeing 3 doors locked behind him as he entered I heard lots of stories as well I wish them not to be true either but there is a good chance some are.

    Default Ruhama is a load of bollox.

    Ruhama is an organisation run by mainly a group of nuns (look it up on the web) and they have an agenda to exaggerate the problem in Ireland.

    Why because they are in receipt of Government funds for their work and if they say the problem is small etc the funding would be cut. Even nuns like to work in an "Important" organisation, meet important people and travel on junkets to international meetings about prostitution.

    For Example they said today in the media that "Street prostitution is on the increase"
    Firstly I work near baggot Street and to go home I have to go through the Abour Hill area both of these are our "red Light" districts in Dublin and I can safely say that there has been FUCK ALL increase in dirls on the game. In fact compared to 10 - 15 years ago there is comparatevely fuck all street girls.

    Also I personally have not seen any under age girls plying their trade.

    There is statstics, statstics and damm lies.

    Anyway I would'nt trust any nuns anyway as they participated in the wholesale abuse including sexual of our children in former decades.
