Punched in the face, kicked down stairs, bitten, starved and beaten - women involved in prostitution in Ireland are increasingly at risk of violence. Does this rise in sexual aggression identify a link between degradation of women and the universal availability of hard pornography? The release last week of the annual report from Ruhama, the charity for women affected by prostitution, triggered a mild flurry of curiosity about the lives of one of the most contentious groups in society.
They were punched in the face, in the stomach, were kicked down stairs, beaten for refusing to have sex with men, were locked in, were refused food, were burned and bitten. The notion of a mutually pleasurable, damage-free transaction — as promoted by the industry and supporters of legalisation — sits wildly at odds with the reality of these engagements.
Were it not for the wreckage they leave behind, the self-delusion of the average sex buyer would be laughable. At one level, these men — some of whom pay for sex up to 10 times a month, according to their own posts — must delude themselves that the women find them irresistible.
She went by a different name then. She hates her clients, hates the job, hates the world. Stay well away from it. I hope one day you give me another chance.
The men are getting younger, she says, and more physically aggressive. The stories about lonely men just wanting to chat, are a myth in her experience. Marie agrees that there are women who freely choose prostitution for the money. The link between increased aggression and more degrading demands from younger men with the universal availability of hard pornography is impossible to ignore.
