In Sydney. No one else seems to have heard of it.

Sex worker Ivy McIntosh said people in her profession were being overcharged when they placed ads in local papers. “I’m paying too much for a measly two inches,” she said in a statement.


Meanwhile the Salvation Army has apologised for a newspaper advertisement for Red Shield Day. The ad featured a drug addicted prostitute who had been rescued by the Salvos and taken to rehab.

The assorted whores (their word) found the suggestion that someone might be forced into prostitution to feed a drug habit offensive.

In fact there are close links between drug abuse and prostitution.  Annoying as this may be to ‘respectable’ sex workers, pretending otherwise does not help anyone.

The Salvation Army should not have apologised.
