The website of one Edinburgh “sauna” featured a photograph of a young lady wearing just her sparkly shoes, lying on her back with her knees apart in the air. Her modesty was preserved by a strategically placed banana.
On flimsy evidence like this, some jump to the conclusion that such saunas are actually illegal brothels!
Prostitution is illegal because it is ultimately damaging to all parties involved (despite their consent), and their families (who do not consent), and to the relational ethos of wider society.
How bizarre that we need an individual, Mr Anthony (your report, 8 November), to campaign to persuade Edinburgh Council and the police to uphold the law.
And, to top it all, he has failed!
