Double standards

The Telegraph reports:

The government in the Netherlands has clarified that it is legal for driving instructors to offer lessons in return for sex, as long as the are over of 18.

However, it is illegal to offer sex in return for lessons.

Transport Melanie Schultz van Haegen and Justice minister Ard van der Steur addressed the issue in response to a question tabled in by Gert-Jan Segers of the socially conservative Christian Union party, noting that, although ‘undesirable’, offering driving lessons with sex as payment is not illegal.

In a letter to the ministers said: “It’s not about offering sexual activities for remuneration, but offering a driving lesson. It is important that the initiative lies with the driving instructor, and focuses on offering a driving lesson, with the payment provided in sexual acts. When a sexual offered in lieu of financial payment, that is prostitution.”

Isn’t that nuts?

This used to be the law in NZ. It was legal for clients to offer money for sex, but illegal for prostitutes to offer sex for money.
