Ireland escorting in the News
A candlelit vigil takes place outside the Department of Justice in Dublin to mark International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Sex Workers. The campaign group Sex Workers Alliance of Ireland (SWAI) blames recent violent attacks against sex-workers on 2017 legislation criminalising the purchase of sex.
As part of operation quest, the Irish pigs have been looking at websites (intelligence-led) and staking out areas of Dublin, Waterford, Cork, Mayo, Sligo and Louth. The days of action were to harass those participation in consensual sexual activity for payment.
Five men were arrested concerning attacks on Irish Escorts in Dublin. Three of them are to appear in court on Thursday. The Gardai are appealing for information from anyone. If you feel able to, please contact them.
Since the middle of October, there have been at least seven targetted attacks on escorts in Ireland, mainly in the Dublin area. It appears they receive a booking from an online advertisement, on answering the door they are confronted by a group of men who violently attack the woman and steal money and property. The Gardai are seeking information from sex workers. The police are the same group who enforce the law on brothel-keeping and inform landlords that their property is being used to sell sex. It seems many women are not going to provide information to the police for fear of being evicted or prosecuted.
Gardai are urging sex workers to avoid online appointments following the results, as Cute Catriona comments, This fucking headline is ridiculous - the vast, vast majority of appointments are made online. This is essentially telling sex workers not to earn money till these people are caught. Twitter Thread
Rachel Moran, an ex-sex worker and author of For: My Journey Through Prostitution who is often used to represent the evil side of sex work has often been accused of not working as a prostitute on the streets. Nobody has remembered seeing her work where she states she worked. A particular vocal sex worker, Gaye Dalton has been particularly vocal able her belief that Rachel never worked selling sex. She has all recently come to a head, and Rachel is seeking an injunction against Gaye. Judgement has been reserved until next week.
The judge has told Gaye, that she must cease posting false and defamatory statements about Rachel Moran. He deferred on costs because Ms Moran was alleged to have raised legal costs through crowdfunding. Read more here.
THE Sex Workers Alliance of Ireland (SWAI) is hosting a focus group in Cork, aimed at gathering research on the issues sex workers face. The research is being conducted by Adeline Berry, who works with SWAI. Berry believes the law needs to change. “It is unrealistic to say we are going to end demand by criminalising the purchase of sex.
It is believed over 100 men from all walks of life are being questioned for the consensual purchase of sex from escorts working in the Republic of Ireland. Four men have been convicted, and 20 files have been submitted to the prosecutors.
As a part of an operation to target men purchasing sex, the Gardai ran an Operation called Quest, which was supposedly intelligently run. They targetted areas in Dublin, Kilkenny/Carlow, Cork City, Kerry, Galway and Donegal in both rural and urban areas. Some 38 men were spoken to and files are being prepared. This is the second national operation targeting the demand for prostitution in 2019 and further operations are planned.
Rachel Bloom (27) has been an escort for five years, starting out funding her college education. She had been having health problems and needed a job. Escorting fitted the bill, a job with flexibility and high pay when she could work. She prefers to work with someone else, but can't because of the risks of being caught for brothel-keeping. Over 85% of those convicted for brothel-keeping are women, with 27% being prosecuted, mothers.
From their lived experience, the new law has required them to be more secretive and thus has increased risk, made them less likely to seek help from gardaí and other authorities and has increased stigma rendering them more vulnerable to violence. In their view, the 2017 law has given the client even more transactional power over them.
Law change urged as migrant women overwhelmingly convicted of brothel-keeping - 8th August 2019
A study has shown the majority of those convicted of brothel-keeping in the republic of Ireland are women (85%). Those convicted are normally non-nationals, and in 27% of the cases, one of the women was a mother. In a large majority of the cases, the escorts pleaded guilty, which is concerning that they are not demanding their right to have a solicitor present when questioned. Additionally, in 90% of the cases, the women were named in the press. Senator Ruane said the research is proof the law has failed and should be changed. Policing policy around sex work clearly needs to be reformed to ensure that vulnerable people are not the targets of policing activity in this area
2nd July 2019 The new Irish laws have made Irish escorts lives more dangerous, says activist Kate McGrew
It has been two years since Ireland made the buying of sex illegal. The law targetted sex buyers and their pimps. Supports say the law is to protect sex workers by reducing demand for services. Critics of the law say it makes it more dangerous for escorts, forcing them to work alone. Sex workers are also more likely not to report crimes to the Gardai. The reported incidence of crimes to escorts has risen according to UglyMugs.ie. An organisation that collates reports from those working as escorts in Ireland.

7th June 2019 Kildare judge jails prostitutes for nine months
So the Irish state and the nuns want to protect women against exploitation by men. So how is it that two women in Newbridge have been jailed for 9 months each operating a brothel. The pair were charged with keeping or running a brothel, and evidence was given to the court by the gardai that the pair were also the prostitutes. The Irish Government were warned that this would happen and that most brothels in Ireland were operated by the women themselves. This Judge does seem to have a vendetta against escorts. Their solicitor said that the women had a sum of money available that could be paid to a charity. But Judge Desmond Zaidan was not inclined to give them this opportunity. They weren’t forced into this position. and he then sentenced the pair to nine months in prison. This was despicable. the women were working alone and had not come to anyone's attention before.
Ms McGrew, director of the Sex Workers Alliance Ireland, said the change in the law in 2017 was "heralded as a law that would protect sex workers - but we at SWAI cannot understand how jailing two young migrant women will protect or rescue them." The facts of this case show the 2017 Sexual Offences Law is not fit for purpose.
