But even the law’s supporters acknowledge that drops in street prostitution, which countries without similar legislation have also seen, are more likely related to the advent of the internet, where it's easier than ever to offer or find sexual services, than to the power of the Nordic model.
As for men buying sex, the government evaluation raised more questions than answers. Were fewer men actually buying sex in Sweden thanks to the law, or were fewer men admitting to being johns — and thereby outing themselves as criminals in a government inquiry?
Sweden's national criminal statistics paint a less positive picture than the government evaluation. The number of sex buyers has been going up since 2008 — increasing from 187 in 2008 and hitting a peak of 1,251 in 2010 before falling again, in 2012 and 2013, to around 550.
But were more men buying sex in spite of the law — or were more men getting caught buying sex?
Kajsa Wahlberg, the national rapporteur on human trafficking, said the rise in buyer numbers came after the government increased funding to target traffickers, and the prostitution enforcement arm of the police benefited from some of that money. That funding ended in 2011, and the numbers have again hit “normal” levels for sex-buying, she said.
But these wild variations make it difficult to know with confidence what the real number of men buying sex may be. In fact, on almost all fronts, “it's very hard to tell” how well the law is working, said Kristina Ljungros, of the Swedish Association for Sexual Education (RFSU). “We don't have enough evidence.”
Ljungros' organization is the preeminent national institution on sexual health, and has found the research so limited and “so colored by [differing] perspectives” that it has commissioned its own comprehensive research review to help craft an official position on the law; the group hopes to complete the review by October.
Whatever the statistics, Patrik Cederlöf, Sweden's national coordinator against prostitution and trafficking, feels confident that the country is onto something. “I was on the street when we implemented the legislation, so I have seen the before and after,” said Cederlöf. And though the numbers are a little loose, he thinks the legislation has worked. “There's still a lot of demand, a lot of clients, of course, but at the same time, I would say the situation is better here than in many other countries.”
That's especially true, many Swedish government officials say, if you look at figures for sex trafficking. The International Labor Organization estimates that the commercial sex industry makes up $99 of the $150 billion in worldwide illegal profits from trafficking. Recent research suggests that “abolitionist” countries where prostitution is fully legal, like Germany or the Netherlands, also have high levels of human trafficking. (The Netherlands fully legalized prostitution in 2000, and Germany in 2002, meaning that unlike in Sweden and other Swedish-styled countries, brothels and other third-party “exploitation” are also legal.)
Even the best research doesn't yet show that legalizing prostitution causes an increase in sex trafficking, and the underground nature of trafficking means good data is limited — so limited, in fact, that the Netherlands' rapporteur on trafficking wrote in a report last year that recent research advancing a connection was ultimately “inconclusive.”
But Swedish law enforcement authorities say they've seen it for themselves.
The ban on buying sex “has kind of saved us,” said Wahlberg. In telephone surveillance records shared by other countries, “we can clearly hear that criminals are discussing amongst themselves, 'Where shall we bring the women?' [They think] Sweden is not a good country because the clients are afraid, you have to move women around, you can't send them to the streets, and there are no brothels.”
All of that would mean traffickers make less money from each woman and need more time to make it. The numbers seem to support that, at least: Last year, Sweden identified only 40 cases of sex trafficking, according to the State Department's annual report on human trafficking, released in June.
It's not just the ban on buying sex that makes Sweden tough on traffickers. There's another law banning both exploiting sex sellers and benefiting materially from their exploitation.
Wahlberg says the law is designed to target pimps, but admits it's not foolproof. Most of those nabbed by the law are middle managers; the masterminds run the show from abroad, over cell phone and email.
Women who sell or have sold sex, like Pye Jakobsson, say the “procurement law,” as the anti-pimping legislation is known, can make it difficult for sex workers to find safe places to work or even to keep their apartments.
“Under the pimping laws, if a landlord finds out someone is selling sex in one of his apartments that he rents out, he has to evict them or he will be charged with pimping,” said Jakobsson, who runs the pro-prostitution advocacy group the Rose Alliance and is the president of the Global Network of Sex Work Projects.

In het Nieuws 10 juni 2017.
Franklin Waterval onderhield warme banden met Dino Bouterse en Desi Bouterse en onderhield contact met de omstreden Surinaamse Counter Intelligence Unit. Er wordt omtrent de mogelijke betrokkenheid van Piet Wortel bij de moord op Franklin Waterval druk gespeculeerd in Surinaamse kringen. Franklin Waterval en Piet Wortel hadden het regelmatig over een zekere Baas-Man. Franklin Waterval bracht boodschap over aan Piet Wortel dat deze laatste namens �Baas-Man� de Surinaamse onderwereld zou gaan controleren.
Piet Wortel was hoofdverdachte in de zaak Tidore. Tidore is codenaam van onderzoek dat in 2010 is gestart nadat in de haven van Rotterdam ruim 1.100 kilo cocaine werd aangetroffen in een lading whisky. Tidore is het grootste onderzoek naar wereldwijde grootschalige cocainehandel dat de Nationale Recherche heeft gedaan. Desi Bouterse wordt genoemd in de zaak Tidore. Piet Wortel kreeg zeven jaar cel vanwege betrokkenheid bij grote cocainetransporten. Piet Wortel was medeverdachte van Haroun �Harry� A. van Haroun �Harry� A wordt gezegd dat hij een buiten kind – zoon – van Baas. (Desi Bouterse) Haroun �Harry� A is verdachte in de zaak Tidore.
Haroun �Harry� A is nu verdachte in het witwasonderzoek naar onder andere twee schroothandelaren uit Nieuw-Schoonebeek. Andre Bakker is de hoofdverdachte in het witwasonderzoek Nieuw-Schoonebeek. Andre Bakker is oud-ijzerhandelaar afkomstig uit Nieuw-Schoonebeek en heeft bedrijven op Sint Maarten en in Suriname.

Witwasspoor leidt naar vriend Bouterse.
2 mei 2017 John van den Heuvel en Mick van Wely Telegraaf.
Opnieuw komt een groot rechercheonderzoek akelig dicht in de buurt van de Desi Bouterse. Dirk Staphorst, een persoonlijk contact van Desi Bouterse, speelt een belangrijke rol in een zaak rond het witwassen van 8 miljoen euro. Het rechercheonderzoek met de naam �Lenwe� is zeer omvangrijk. Het OM legt voor 8 miljoen euro beslag op panden. Twee schroothandelaren, waaronder Andre Bakker, uit Nieuw-Schoonebeek en Sint Maarten staan centraal in de zaak. Ze importeren oud metaal via bedrijven uit Suriname en Sint Maarten.
De recherche focust op geldstromen van en naar deze twee mannen. Een van de personen die naar voren komen, is Luz Mery Mejia Cardano, een vrouw die is geboren in het Colombiaanse Cali met de bijnaam �Mammie. Luz Mery Mejia Cardano is getrouwd met Dirk Staphorst geboren in Nijmegen. Hij blijkt in Suriname te verblijven.
Uit tapgesprekken blijkt dat twee schroothandelaren uit Nieuw-Schoonebeek vermoedelijk een lening hebben gekregen van 200.000 euro van Dirk Staphorst . Ze praten over het betalen van een rentebedrag van 24.000 euro. Een van de mannen werd in april vorig jaar nog aangehouden in Amsterdam met 100.000 euro, waarvan hij de herkomst niet kon verklaren.

In Suriname is de smokkel van coke het laatste jaar geexplodeerd. �Deze massale smokkel kan alleen gebeuren met medeweten van de overheid. Het is een ongelooflijk zorgwekkende ontwikkeling�, zeiden de Surinaamse oud-politiecommissaris van Paramaribo Chan Santokhi en parlementslid Krishna Mathoera in een interview met deze krant in maart.
23 augustus 2016 De moord op Franklin Waterval allesovermisdaad.nl Laatste update dossier:
Bouterse is eerder gezien in het bijzijn van zware criminelen. Eerder publiceerde De Telegraaf foto�s waarop Bouterse poseert naast een in augustus in Paramaribo geliquideerde topcrimineel. En het kan nog dichter bij huis. De zoon van Bouterse, Dino, zit in de Verenigde Staten een straf van 16 jaar uit voor coke- en wapensmokkel.
29 maart 2017 Crimesite.
De politie heeft woensdag nog een verdachte aangehouden in het internationale witwas- en cocaineonderzoek rond een schroothandelaar uit Nieuw-Schoonebeek. De 47-jarige man uit Almere was op 13 maart, aangehouden voor een ander onderzoek.
In de woning van de man is huiszoeking gedaan. Daarbij is beslag gelegd op 100.000 euro aan contanten, een stroomstootwapen en een waardevol horloge.
De recherche heeft Haroun �Harry� A. (47), Surinaamse man uit Almere aangehouden die eerder verdachte was in het cocaine-onderzoek Tidore, waarin ook de Surinaamse president Desi Bouterse werd genoemd. Haroun �Harry� A wordt verdacht van witwassen. Van Haroun �Harry� A wordt gezegd dat hij een buiten kind – zoon – van Baas (Desi Bouterse)
Suri-Kartel springlevend, crimefighters maken zich zorgen.
21 februari 2017 arkinoh.com.
Bijna maandelijks worden enorme hoeveelheden �Surinaamse� cocaine onderschept in en buiten Nederland. Terwijl de economie ineenstort, floreert de handel in coke. Twee van de beste en meest fanatieke crimefighters van Suriname zijn uitermate bezorgd over de gevolgen van de smokkel in hun land en Nederland.
We spreken in Paramaribo met oud-politiecommissaris van Paramaribo en parlementslid Krishna Mathoera en voormalig officier van justitie en politiechef, Chandrikapersad Santokhi. Beiden zijn van de oppositiepartij VHP.
�Er gaat veel meer cocaine via Suriname naar Europa dan ooit tevoren. In de jaren tachtig landden vliegtuigen op airstrips in Suriname met meestal zo�n 500 kilo. Nu worden er partijen van 1000 kilo of meer gesmokkeld�, vertelt Mathoera in een horecagelegenheid in het centrum van Paramaribo. Achter haar wuiven de palmen uit de tuin van het presidentiele paleis van Bouterse.

To being with, we are from different social classes. She identifies as middle class whereas I am from a working class background, raised in council housing. My family was severely impoverished and I came to prostitution through homelessness and destitution. I can only assume, from what she writes, that DCG�s early upbringing was the opposite, and unlike me, she came to prostitution though the grooming of sexual abuse. Many women mirror my entry point and many women mirror hers. A lot of women, tragically, mirror both.
Our stories are also different in other ways. I was prostituted from the age of fifteen to twenty-two, throughout most of the nineties. She was prostituted from twenty-one to twenty-six, through the latter half of the noughties (I hate that term, but we have no other).
I worked in all areas of prostitution; the streets, brothels, massage parlours and escort agencies. She worked privately, in escort agencies, advertising online, which was an area of prostitution only taking off the same year I left it. I consider myself lucky to have missed that, especially for the sake of the creepy punters online �reviews�, where punters review every aspect of the women they have bought � pouring verbal contempt and scorn all over them. This contempt repulses me beyond measure, and I have the deepest sort of sympathy for the innumerable women who�ve endured it.
Our prostitution histories are different also in the sense that, unlike DCG, I didn�t come to understand prostitution as something that was damaging retrospectively. I lived every moment of it as sexually abusive right there, as it was happening. This would obviously have made the experience of it more painful, but I strongly suspect it makes the memory of it less so.
On the subject of survivor memoirs: not in spite of how different, but rather because of how different, the memoirs of prostitution survivors compliment each other and are mutually strengthening, in a profoundly significant sense. This is because they cause people to understand that a woman or girl can come to prostitution through a myriad of circumstances, at any time, at any age, for many reasons, or for a mish-mash of reasons. Our different stories assert this. They emphasise and state and declare it. These are our truths. They are different truths, but they all end up in the same place � that mind-shattering reality of having your heart broken and your legs open on a brothels bed.
The fact is that the blogs and books of every survivor who honestly lays down her story do not detract, but rather affirm the writings of other women. For all these reasons and other reasons besides, it is essentially important that the stories of survivor women stand alongside each other; just as us women must do and should do. We are all living the survival of the same pain and those of us who choose to speak out live all the same fears, are subject to all the same threats, suffer all the same traumas and are targeted at all the same points of our obvious vulnerabilities.
Our sincerest warm wishes for each other are a healing balm that should be poured liberally and continually, with love and without restraint. So to answer the question I was asked the other day: stupid jealousies and resentments should never get a look-in here, because, besides anything else, you can�t be in competition when you�re on the same team.
Hate Mail and other Ignorant Nonsense.
This is a short post to inform those who have recently begun to bombard me with hate mail and ignorance in some of its other boringly blatant forms, that their efforts are wasted. Those posts will not be displayed here. There are plenty enough other areas of the internet that are infected with such bile; I am hardly about to allow my own blog become one of them.
As to the lies that have been circulated about me recently, well there is not much I can do about those. In all honesty, there’s not much I would do if I could. They are fairly obvious, most of them. For example I am said to be just out of prostitution, despite that anyone who bothered to read this blogs ‘About’ page would know I am out of prostitution fourteen years. This lie was constructed in order to query what business I have not being semi-literate. Because, you see, former prostitutes are supposed to be, apparently. Strange that this notion was constructed by a current prostitute!
There are many others, each one less worth repeating than the last. They all have the same aim, which is to discredit me and everything I experienced and witnessed throughout seven years that spanned prostitution’s entire social spectrum. These are common silencing tactics from the pro-prostitution lobby; all of us survivors experience them. Well, as I said to a good friend of mine recently – none of this BS is going to keep our arses off interviewers� seats or our books off the shelves. Roll on next spring when my book is published and I will be making my identity public, for the primary reason that I damn-well intend to stand over my own experiences, and I will not be silenced by anyone.
Trafficking and Prostitution � and the Differences that Don�t Exist.

Girls in China are kidnapped and trafficked through Burma to Thailand. In one kidnapping scheme in the central Thai provinces, an agent photographed village girls on their way to school; showed the photos to a brothel keeper who ordered the girls he wanted. The agent returned and kidnaped the chosen girl. (CATW – Asia Pacific, Trafficking in Women and Prostitution in the Asia Pacific )
The networks in Thailand involved in the trafficking of women have liaisons in Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. (Chulalongkorn University, “There’s money everywhere for Thai police,” The Nation , 25 February 1997)
Thailand is a staging point for the international trade in prostitutes and illegal workers, with facilities for the production of false travel documents and processing of foreign nationals to third countries. (Chulalongkorn University, “There’s money everywhere for Thai police,” The Nation , 25 February 1997) Russion women, looking for a better life and to escape the Russian economic crisis, are being trafficked to Pattaya. Most of the women became involved with job placement agencies offering high-paying work as dancers, waitresses, domestic servants or sale representatives. Trafficking networks in Russia charge the women anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000 (60,000 to 120,000 baht) and once in Thailand, the women are kept in constant fear. They have their passports taken away upon arrival. The women are forced to work long hours for little pay and threatened with death or the death of their families if they don’t cooperate. (“Pattaya: Murder, prostitution and tourists,” Bangkok Post , 22 April 1998)
Most European women in prostitution in Thailand are from Russia, the Czech Republic and Romania. The women enter via procurers in Thailand and their native nations. Procurers take women to Yaowaraj, Surawongse, Urupong and Kingphet to be prostituted in apartments. (“Thailand popular haunt for foreign prostitues,” The Nation , 15 January 1997)
Brothel owners in Thailand prefer foreign women because they are easier to control and more ”loyal”. ”They will not cheat us like Thai women do, or escape from us. They are also abundant in number. Certainly, the clients prefer them to Thai women, they say the foreign women are less likely to be infected with HIV.” (Kritaya Archavanitkul, Institute for Population and Social Research, Mahidol University, The Passage of Women in Neighbouring Countries Into the Sex Trade in Thailand , “Academic urges action in war against flesh trade,” Yindee Lertcharoenchok, Mukdawan Sakboon, The Nation , 28 May 1997)
The AIDS pandemic is how the sex industry is excusing recruiting more young girls from remote areas in Thailand, Shan State in Burma, Southern China, Kampuchea and Laos, under the false pretense that younger girls will not be infected with the disease.

I�ve finally arrived in Mae Sai! I took a bus from Chiang Mai and arrived about four hours later. I had a window seat in the VIP upper deck complete with a recliner chair, foot-rest and individual a/c. Eat your heart out, Greyhound. Mae Sai is the most northern city in Thailand, an authentic Thai city bordering Burma. There were several police check-points along the way. The police would come onto the bus and ask to see people�s tickets and/or documents. Mostly, they are asking Burmese passengers. They have never once asked to see mine. The police have guns here � something I�ve haven�t seen anywhere else in Thailand, but I do not feel unsafe. I�m in a border region now and there are tensions between the Thai and Burmese governments. Just as when I traveled to Belfast in 1997 when tensions were high between the Sinn Fein and Northern Ireland, I feel as if the political problems do not involve me and I�m treated as such. I do not profess to understand the complexities of Thailand�s relationship with Burma, but I know it changes daily and the border is often closed as a result. Burma has suffered a military regime and internal conflict since 1948. The conflict is largely between the Burmese government and the ethnic groups that live throughout the country. Opium production is widely rampant and the Thai government has done a lot to eradicate its production and distribution in Thailand. For more on the ethnic minority groups and the impacts of their migration to Thailand, see my earlier post “Ethnic Minority Hill Tribes.”
I�m surrounded by mountains, tropical forest, and dense vegetation. The plant life alone is diverse, tropical, green and lush. The air is cleaner and the mountains are breathtaking. I can even see the stars! My volunteer coordinator retrieved me from the bus station, set me up in a resort for a few nights while I await my apartment � it will be ready on February 1 st . My resort is off the beaten track. I have a private balcony overlooking the mountains, which are much closer to me than they were in Chiang Mai. Spoken English is pretty wide-spread in the touristy areas of Thailand. Outside of them, not so much. I can tell I�m in for it now! Tourists typically only venture to Mae Sai to do visa runs or shop in the border markets – most don�t stick around. The only Westerners that stay for any length of time are those who are doing what I�m doing � volunteering or doing paid work with NGOs.

800AD-1600AD: Unexpected in the Amazon region : Researchers are surprised to find evidence of “civilization” in the Amazon Rainforest region, spread about a 39sq/km area at the headwaters of the Xingu River, a 1000-year-old network of towns and villages, evidence of a complex, sophisticated society aware of “mathematics, astronomy and other sciences”, The area was occupied 800AD-1600AD. There were about 19 villages each housing about 2500-5000 people, spaced 2.5-3.5 km apart, and connected by straight roadways up to 45 metres wide. The people utilised ditches, bridges, irrigation, ponds, causeways, canals. One view about the findings is, “not earth-shattering, but not expected in the Amazon”. Researchers involved include Robert Carneiro of American Museum of Natural History, lead archaeologist Michael Heckenberger, of University of Florida and Jim Petersen, archaeologist of University of Vermont.

Ye Olde Wives Tales from Olde England.
Life in the 1500s: some interesting things to ponder. submitted “from the Net”
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whiskey. The combination would sometimes knock them out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a “wake.”
England is old and small, and they started running out of places to bury people. So, they would dig up coffins and would take their bones to a house and reuse the grave. In reopening these coffins, one out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they thought they would tie a string on their wrist and lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night to listen for the bell. Hence on the “graveyard shift” they would know that someone was “saved by the bell” or he was a “dead ringer.”
Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May and were still smelling pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the b.o.
Baths equaled a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.”
Houses had thatched roofs. Thick straw, piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the pets. dogs, cats and other small animals, mice, rats, bugs lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying, “It’s raining cats and dogs.”
There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could really mess up your nice clean bed. So, they found if they made beds with big posts and hung a sheet over the top, it addressed that problem. Hence those beautiful big four-poster beds with canopies. I wonder if this is where we get the saying “Good night and don’t let the bed bugs bite. ”
The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt, hence the saying “dirt poor.” The wealthy had slate floors which would get slippery in the winter when wet. So they spread thresh on the floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on they kept adding more thresh until when you opened the door it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed at the entry way, hence a “thresh hold.”
They cooked in the kitchen in a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They mostly ate vegetables and didn’t get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes the stew had food in it that had been in there for a month. Hence the rhyme: peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old.”
