Men hooking hookers to be shamed!

Asian News International

The UK government has decided to give lessons to men, who are caught picking-up prostitutes, about the brutal realities of the sex industry, in a bid to eradicate prostitution.

The new anti-prostitution drive comes after a survey revealed that men who pay for sex in the UK has doubled in a decade.

In the move, men who use hookers will be given lectures about how women are raped and sexually harassed by pimps and traffickers, reports the Mirror.

The lessons will mirror the "John Schools" used in the US to shame men caught using prostitutes.

There is also concern at the scale of sex trafficking to the UK, as 19 women from overseas, held against their will at a brothel in Birmingham, were found by the police.

"Need to understand the nature of abuse," the paper quoted Home Office minister Paul Goggins as saying.
