    Default Vice King v Vice Queen

    Do you think it is sociable more acceptable for a woman to run a brothel more than a man and do you think that the penalites handed down from the courts reflect this?
    You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.

    Because the majority of escorts are female, it is probably socially more acceptable for a woman. There is less of an impression of exploitation. As for the courts attitude, I suspect there is generally less harsher penalties handed out to women, that is just a general observation not specifically related to the brothel business.

    IMO women running a brothel sits a little bit better than men. If I heard of a man running one I'd immediately assume that the women working there are doing so under duress, granted a female can do the same but that's just the way I think about it anyway. Not too sure what the penalties handed down to males v's females is when caught doing this, but in general I think courts tend to go lighter on women for various reasons. Maybe society as a whole doesn't think it's right to jail women???

    Other than myself there were hardly any women who ran brothels by themselves when I was on the go; there was usually a man behind them, and the courts and Garda knew this.

    Of course we all know the answer is to decriminalise this business, then this thread becomes redundant, and society shows a maturity unseen up to this.

    I seem to remember a tv programm some years back where some sex workers were saying that women pimps are in fact much worst than men.Having a better knowledge and understanding of the woman anatomy and psychology, they can excerce pressure and coercion in a way that men would not consider.
    As for physical violence , a male pimp applies it himself, while a female will do it herself or with her minions, ending to the same result.

    The majority of brothels in continental Europe are run by women.
