Public relief officials in England have approved funding prostitutes and lap dances for the disabled as legitimate expenses under social services regulations. In one case, local officials paid off on the use of public funds for a prostitute in Amsterdam.
The Amsterdam trip was paid for a 21-year-old with learning disabilities to have sex with a prostitute. His social worker insisted that the agency must meet the needs of their clients and that the young man was frustrated and angry over his circumstances.
Likewise, another social worker insisted that lap dances were important to the “mental and physical well being” of their clients — a position that many men have taken with less success in conversations with their wives.
Another man with mental health problems from Norwich received public support for an internet dating site and a trip to Tunisia.
