    Kinda pointless really, more like an advertisment than anything else! Dont really understand the purpose of the article...
    Also, I dont think they should have given the web address or mentioned any names.

    They are only competing to sell more newspapers than their counterparts.
    They dont mean what they say, are full of BS and dont give a crap about the women working in the industry and you know why Sweet?
    Why would anyone say that there is a huge problem with internet access and then give the actual web addresses? They encouraged the problem ,not prevented it. You can bet that there are guys out there who had no idea of the addresses of these websites and now they do with the good ole Irish Examiner.
    But i will say this ,the owners of this web dont give crap about the industry either.Its all about money on both sides and has nothing at all to do with protecting any woman.
    The interesting thing that that article outlined was the price difference between here and Amsterdam.
    Its like an alchoholic lecturing someone for smoking too much.Look there will always be this industry whatever name you want to call it.It should be legalised.Then some sense of protection,legality,and of course the gov grabbing taxes will come into it.

    The toughest thing for me was not the illegality,the prices or anything else.The hardest part for me was actually meeting someone in the buisiness that cared about me and i the same about her yet never see her.Good for the ego, horrible for the mind.

    I guess it helps to prove the old law of advertising that Sex Sells, and by promoting the article in their radio ads it helped to boost circulation for the day.On this occasion the depth or quality of the article seems to matter little as long as it had the desired effect, CIRCULATION... After all is said and done the most likely outcome of this article will be a fresh crop of punters that thanks to the publication of the web site addresses will now know where to go shopping for an escort.

    The article does kinda read like an advert for E-I.

    As the owner of E-I of course I can't complain... Free advertising!

    However, as a human being and a news consumer, I can well see the point of anyone who thinks our journalists should have better things to write about.

    Smile Maybe........... but....................................................

    Dear Miss X,
    Someone should write into the numnut and ask him if they are so worried about it, why advertise it. Plus he looks like a natural form of contrapcetion for women. I dont know if you saw his pic, dont. I think i might wait outside the offices to feel even more talented than i actualy am.I know one or two journalist and they are intellectually constipated.They are so busy looking for some sensational shit to write about that they end up in mental homes by the time their fifty. Thats why they are all young. Their brain bogs down and ceases.
    You should have a competition for the Numnut Of The Year Award. A grand prize money.You know the winner.


    Hugs and Kisses,
    Westside. xxx

    It isn't journalists like this examiner one that really concern me.

    There is a lot worse than that.

    For example, the media coverage of a recent murder of an escort in England was disgraceful I think.

    E.g. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/a...39;/article.do

    I for one think it is WRONG that this poor lady's life has been talked about the way it has.

    The tabloids have been full of juicy articles about who she apparently slept with in her life, and you might expect that from those guttersnipes as unfortunately they have a habbit of stooping to that level, but articles like the above from mainstream newspapers naming her daughter etc is pretty low in my opinion.

    all depends on the target audience doesn't it? for the examiner it's mostly Cork/Waterford dairy farmers and their wives... just the reporting of the fact that prostitution exists at all is enough to titilate them - and about as far as a national broadsheet should go for the article above it's "breakfast roll man" that's the expected audience... and an attempt to sensationalise in order to beat the competition - at least the examiner reports the facts as they stand - doesn't seem to be any obvious untruths in the article.

    There is a lazy assumption that prostitutes are vectors for sti's when there is very little evidence of that in fact. you can find plenty of research on that exact point on the web so it bemuses me that they never take the small amount of time to inform themselves, I suppose it's a better story if you can underline some preconcieved fears.

    The picture the media would like to paint is either of vulnerable women/men forced against their will into servicing depraved men OR of the evil harlot luring men into dens of iniquity where they infect them with unspeakable diseases. They rarely, if ever, try to go any deeper into the story....
