The Danish government is under attack for paying for its disabled citizens to have sex with prostitutes.

The official ‘Sex, irrespective of disability’ campaign pays sex workers to provide sex once a month for disabled people.

The legal guidelines advise: “It could be of great importance that the carer speaks to the prostitute together with the person in their care, to help them express their wishes.”

But opposition parties have attacked the regulations, claiming it is an immoral way of spending tax-payers’ money.

Social-Democrat spokesperson Kristen Brosboel said: “We spend a large proportion of our taxes rescuing women from prostitution. But at the same time we officially encourage carers to help contact with prostitutes.”

But Stig Langvad of the country’s Disabled Association said the politicians critical of the plan are showing “double standards”.

He said: “The disabled must have the same possibilities as other people. Politicians can debate whether prostitution should be allowed in general, instead of preventing only the disabled from having access to it.”

Some years ago here in Holland a disabled person went to court to get a monthly visit from a prostitute payed from his health insurance. I do not know how the court ruled in this case. I do know that organizations exist here which provide sexual services especially for physicaly or mentally disabled, or prolonged ill people, at home or at the clinic if necessary. And why not?  Whether it should be payed by the government is another question.

I’d expect this from the Dutch, but the Danes?
