When a male resident at Kildegaarden nursing home in Denmark made an indecent sexual proposal to a member of the staff, the home's director, Inger Marie Kristensen, told a nurse to telephone for a prostitute.
"There was a considerable change in his demeanor after the escort girl had paid him a visit,'' Kristensen said in an interview. "We do this for our clients just as we offer them other services that they need as human beings.''

Kildegaarden, located 100 miles (160 kilometers) west of Copenhagen in Skanderborg, has about 100 residents, including victims of Alzheimer's disease and strokes. Nurses arranged visits by call girls three times in the past three years.

I feel off my chair reading this, a little early for this at 5 am ....

Definitely right !!!!..

Why not?? Why should people be denied sexual pleasures, just because they are older, infirm, disabled ... or even offenders in prison??..

Surely, once the sexual frustrations have been removed, people are happier, calmer, and easier to deal with for the rest of the world ...

A shag should be on prescription for a lot of people ... I know a few at work that could do with a "good seeing to" and perhaps they would turn up after a good weekend with a smile on their faces instead of a sneer and a grunt ..

Can you picture.... rocking up to a pharmacy and handing them a prescription for a shag....??

If the pharmacist is a looker i'd recommend asking your GP for a couple of repeats??

Sexual addiction is as destructive as any other addictions.
Do you see prostitutes leading the good lives?
Do you think porn actors and actresses very happy?

It is very disgusting what you wrote,you have no idea how people in the sex industry end up?To ease their pain they turn to alcohol and drugs.

It is indeed sad that prostitution is becoming acceptable.

Most definitely WRONG!
A moment of sexual gratification is not enough for an intelligent human being to have a meaningful and satisfying life like an enduring loving relationship.
Sexual gratification is the cherry on top in a respectful loving relationship,it has disasterous effects when it turns to lust.
Your statement is very demeaning to any human being,we should help people to come out of such a trade not encourage them.

Sexual addiction????

Because people need sex like they need to eat, breathe, sleep ... Nothing to do with addiction!!???...

It has been proven that people who enjoy a healthy sex life, even without "love" ... are far more happy, healthy, smiley and easy to get along with ...

It is quite easy to see in here, just for a cursary glance, who needs a bloody good shag ... LOL

And NO, I do not believe that people who are prostitutes or porn "actors" are happy ... But if they are going to do it anyway, at least try to keep it legalised, if they are drug addicts, at least give them clean needles ... lots of condoms ... regular check-ups and if they want to get out of the "profession" loads of support and help to lead a different sort of life ... just as in Holland .. otherwise it is just a "public show" of moral belching and "holier than thou" attitudes .. because no matter what you or I do, it is going to exist ...

You can say "oh how disgusting" .. but whether you like it or not .. it will exist. So why not make it legal?? At least, the violent pimps keeping their prostitutes in control with violence and drugs will no longer be "at work" ...
At the end of the day, I do not agree with prostitution .. I do not like to think of any woman having to degrade herself in that manner and to live a life like that .. But if I try to tell myself it does not exist because **I** don't like it ... then I am deluding myself ...

And no, I do not believe either that the any country or state should play "pimp" either .. but at least look after teh girls and women .. instead of arresting them, and then throwing them right back on to the streets, to their pimps, to the drugs and to the downward spiral of drugs, drink, illness and no doubt death eventually ...

I agree in an ideal world, everyone should enjoy the extreme pleasure of having sex in a loving, close, trusting relationship ...

But we live in the real world .. and it is not always like that .. so what do you expect people who are confined to prison .. to hospital .. disbled, locked up .. unable to get out to meet people, but frustrated, angry ..

so they should just "bottle it up"??? A lot of research has shown it simply does not work ... men turn to other men ... again, lots of research has been done on this in prisons or other institutions .. and women turn to other women, when confined for long periods of time ..

This is a FACT .. not something I am making up just for "the sake of it" ...

The urge for sex is one of the strongest in human beings .. and it is not going to be stopped "just" because people are not in a loving relationship ... please get real here ..

Of course for an intelligent person in the long run, it is not sufficient .. but believe you me, I think most men would agree that a one night stand is better than no stand at all ... Men are hunters ... women can sit around and wait until the "right" man (we always hope) comes along ... but men .. nah ... there is a huge difference in the way men and women operate regarding sex ...

That is also the reason that so few homosexual relationships among men work .. two hunters!!!... Even when they are gay, they hunt .. a lot of it is about sex, not love. Please do not kid yourself .. LOL ...

TO RAY;

I just came back from the romantic diner in my memory so I will be VERY blunt in this post to you RAY........

Now RAY, are you going to tell me that sex is not part of life ? If you do all I can say is; LOOOOOOOOOOOL !!!!! If you are a normal human, sorry to inform you but sex is PART OF NORMAL LIFE.

I have been trough my so called "lows" re this (sex), and trust me I am a nasty piece of shit to be around, if I do not get it after months. Like DANETOO said, some of her co workers need to be lazid good and get a smile on there faces.... I understand that one pretty well, let me explain.....

After the seperation from Gil, sex was not in my cards, I became a nasty bitch because I lacked something..... And I am dead honnest here.....

Things have changed ... THANK GOD, or I think some posters on here would have been dead because of he lack.... no details needed!

God made Adam and Eve for reason, you figure out why !!!!!!
