SA Minister Proposes Taxpayer Funded Prostitutes

by on 28 March, 2012

THE state's Dignity for Disability MP wants taxpayers to fund sex workers for people with disabilities.

Today, Kelly Vincent will weigh into the debate on decriminalising sex work by calling for a more "permissive" culture around using disability services funding to pay for access to a sex worker or sex therapy.

Ms Vincent conceded there would need to be eligibility criteria and limits to government-funded access to sex workers but this could be facilitated through the Government's new self-managed funding system. However, this would be reliant on the passing in Parliament of a Bill decriminalising sex work.
