You know how NsromaMedia did a piece on Takoradi prostitutes and how they are the best, France is turning the whole prostitution into a whole new thing; expensive by the day.
This is how CNN reported new prostitutions laws in France:
Paying for sex in France is about to get a lot more expensive.
France has joined a growing number of European countries that criminalize clients of prostitutes.
The French National Assembly outlawed the hiring of prostitutes while eliminating penalties for sex workers. Paying for sex services now carries a fine of 1,500 euros ($1,700). Repeat offenders could be fined up to 3,750 euros ($4,260).
Clients will also have to enroll in workshops to learn about the plight of sex workers, according to the National Assembly’s website.
Meanwhile, sex workers will no longer be fined or jailed for public soliciting. And foreign sex workers actively trying to get out of prostitution can be given a six-month residential permit and state funding to prevent prostitution.
The measure has been quite controversial in France, having bounced back and forth between the legislature’s two chambers since 2013. It passed Wednesday in the National Assembly by a vote of 64 to 12.
“I think this prostitution bill is a good thing,”one Parisan wrote on Twitter “They finally understand that the clients are guilty.”
But many wondered how prostitution could be legalized if the purchase of sex is now illegal.
“This anti-prostitution law is as if we allowed bakers to display their cakes but didn’t allow people to buy them,” Micky Marty tweeted
France follows at least four other European countries that have criminalize the purchase of sex: Sweden, Norway, Iceland and the UK
