Buying Sex Causes Harm

Things are not as they seem.

Beatings, rapes and murder are a reality of prostitution. ​

This reality will persist for the vast majority in the sex trade as long as sex buying continues.

Top reasons not to buy sex:

  1. It’s against the law.
  2. Getting arrested is against most employers’ code of conduct. You will likely lose your job.
  3. Your marriage and children could be exposed to risk.
  4. ​You could lose your wife and access to your children.
  5. Buyers are often robbed at gunpoint and beaten by criminal gangs running prostitution networks.
  6. You could get murdered.
  7. ​You could give your wife or partner a sexually transmitted disease – or MRSA and even HIV.
  8. Once your photo and name are published online, you will never live down the negative reputation for being arrested for prostitution. ​
