Prostitution: Perception & ideology

  • The aim of the session is to demonstrate how and why some people get involved in prostitution, try and dispel some myths and stereotypes of those concerned and why they may remain in the street and indoor prostitution (issues involved could be love for sex, supplementing income, not getting enough sex from partner etc, adventure)
  • The session has been designed to demonstrate how prevailing belief systems about prostitution in society have a direct often negative impact on the lives of those involved
  • The session will also explore the impact that being involved in prostitution has on an individuals’ health, welfare, education and sexual health

You can come along to one, two or all of them – what ever works for you.
