Well if you happen to have a disability pretty soon there will be a place where you can get your jollies taken care of. Becky Adams, 44, plans to spend £50,000 on the establishment, which she hopes will become the first of its kind in the world when it opens in 2014.
“A soldier who comes home from war disabled doesn’t stop being a normal, healthy person with normal, healthy needs. For many, disability can get in the way of fulfilling those needs. It can be very frustrating and painful.
“Our new brothel will be kitted out with ramps and hoists for wheelchair access, just like any other service for disabled people.”
The two-roomed establishment, called Para Doxies from the old English word for prostitues, will be sufficient for two sex workers, carers and staff to assist clients with their day-to-day needs, says Becky.
And, she adds, the brothel will provide transport to collect clients and take them home afterwards.
Becky said: “There’s nothing illegal about spending disability living allowance or benefit money on sexual services and the brothel will not be run to make money, it will be organised on a strictly not-for-profit basis.”
It is currently legal to buy and sell sexual services in the United Kingdom but illegal to involve any third party, such as pimp or brothel madam, in the transaction.
Becky argues the Para Doxies team will simply “educate and facilitate disabled people in their sexuality, with third parties acting as aides, performing functions disabled clients themselves cannot”.
Former madam Becky currently runs Para Doxies as a TLC Trust-supported, not-for-profit, telephone-based service where volunteers assist people with disabilities or their carers to source trust worthy, reliable sex workers, enablers or body-workers.
As part of the service she offers help from a “legal team” who can advise people wanting to use the service on all aspects of UK law and European Human Rights law and how it affects the provision of sexual services for people with disabilities and those caring for them.
And Becky, who ran illegal brothels in the Home Counties for 20 years before retiring in 2010, said she receives around 12 enquiries a week from disabled and vulnerable people looking to solicit from trusted sex workers.
One person she is supporting is cerebal palsy sufferer Chris Fulton.
Chris, 29, from Worcester, last week urged the Government to do more to help disabled people pay for prostitutes.
Mr Fulton, who also has muscular dystrophy, wants the government to adopt a Dutch-style grant scheme.
In Holland disabled people can receive public money in order to pay for sexual relations up to 12 times a year.
But lobby group Disabled Rights UK said pushing for a new system which would make it easier for disabled people to use public money to pay for sex was not considered a priority.
Becky, who recently published her memoir Madam – Prostitutes, Punters & Puppets, expects most of the new brothel’s clients will be referred from charities and advocacy groups, such as the TLC Trust, which has created links between disabled people and sex workers for the past 13 years.
She said: “Some people will think this is wrong. Sex work polarises opinion. Disability is also an old taboo. Sex workers and disabled people are alike in that they are both vulnerable and have very little voice in society. No-one ever listens to them.
“Add benefits and state support to the mix, and this becomes the biggest taboo imaginable.”
