sex tourist

Describing 'Chris Dangerfield: Sex tourist' as 'a new spin on an old argument regarding the sex trade', Tony McKenna in his response 'Hell de Jour' then goes on to provide an old spin on an old argument regarding the sex trade, whilst almost completely avoiding the points I raised.
It's strange that for centuries we've happily paid for other humans to exert their bodies for our pleasure, whether it be a postman, a waiter, a boxer or comedian, whatever. We've also a long, long history of having sex for pleasure. Is bringing those two things together and paying for sex such a bad thing?
