New Norway law bans buying of sex (2009)

New Norway law bans buying of sex

A new law has come into force in Norway making the purchase of sex illegal.

Norwegian citizens caught paying for prostitutes at home or abroad could face a hefty fine or a six-month prison sentence, authorities say.

The prison sentence could be extended to three years in cases of child prostitution.

The Norwegian authorities say they want to stamp out sex tourism and street prostitution by targeting clients rather than prostitutes.

"We think buying sex is unacceptable because it favours human trafficking and forced prostitution," deputy Justice Minister Astri Aas-Hansen was quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.

Wire-tapping

The tough new measures go further than similar ones introduced by other Nordic countries such as Sweden and Finland.

Norwegian police have been authorised to use wire-tapping devices to gather evidence.

There has already been a visible decrease in women working on the streets of central Oslo, local media report.

Prostitutes will be offered access to free education and health treatment for those with alcohol or drugs problems.

The government had already launched a publicity campaign before the law came into force.

Critics of the new regulations say prostitution will simply be driven underground and will be more difficult to control.

Geez. I should've posted this here as I knew about the new law 18 months ago. As always, when stuff like this goes into effect, no-one ever says anything about the GUYS it will affect. Sure in one instance, the law can easily make the activity go underground & into dangerous hands, and in another instance, it can drive men who aren't having any luck in the sexual or romantic departments into really negative activity. This is what is never spoken about. I am not surprised at all about the way the law was justified. Onus on the men to solve their issues by themselves as usual.

It sounds to me like Norway wants to increase its rape rate. Take away men's options and some will go down the wrong path, especially those without enough money to travel abroad to bang hookers. Others will languish in loneliness.

Isnt pornography illegal also? It objectifies women. It is really a release for men though.

Start taking away all the outlets for men. Watch as new Columbine type crimes begin happening.
