With a comprehensive strategy allowing for strategies at all levels and areas of local government, we hope this will allow us to effect change in a productive manner wherever we are elected.
All regulations on production of pornography in the UK are to be repealed, barring those that would expose the material to those below the age of consent or allow images of those below the age of consent of a sexual nature into adult stores. Pornography that is explicitly stated to be non consensual would also be illegal. These regulations criminalise the actions of consenting adults and entire subcultures, such as bans on production of BDSM pornography, and are more fit for a theocratic nation than a democracy.
Sex work is to be completely decriminalised (barring sex work for those under the age of consent) and active outreach work will be taken to destigmatise, but not encourage people into, this line of work. In line with this policy, sex work is to be practiced only in regulated brothels and brothelkeeping would be legalised, and though sex work in the home would not be encouraged, it would have a neutral legal status for the worker and it would be illegal to solicit the services of a sex worker for money in an unregulated environment. Brothels would be taxed as any other business.
If not previously established, a 24/7 freephone number will be formally established to report abuse specifically of sex workers and will add to the myriad of techniques currently utilised by law enforcement to avoid this happening. This will contribute to the ongoing battle against human trafficking and abuse of sex workers.
