Legalized Prostitution Vancouver

*Should Prostitution be Legalized Before the 2010 Olympics?*

Vancouver- The legalization of prostitution has been a long neglected
topic in the City of Vancouver. It’s time to revisit the question,
consider alternatives, and look at solutions once again. The coming 2010
Winter Olympics make the topic especially timely.

How will a mega-event that will bring thousands of tourists to Vancouver
affect the sex trade in the city? Will the recent implementation of a
sex worker's cooperative help or merely compound the problem and further
exploit already marginalized women? Is there a solution to Vancouver's
sex trade? What about the trafficking of women? Can a rationale policy
that recognizes the multiple dimensions of the sex trade be found?

Please attend a free public forum in order to foster greater public
awareness on this important topic.

Some of the speakers and organizations attending are:

Vancouver Rape Relief - Daisy Khler
- AWAN (Aboriginal Women's Action Network) - Carrie Humchitt
- XPALSS (Ex-Prostitutes Against Legislated Sexual Servitude) - speaker
to be confirmed
- Tamara O'Doherty (Researcher specialization in experiences of
victimization for off-street workers in the sex industry)
- Dave Dickson (Vancouver Police Depart, Sex Worker Liaison)
- BCCEW (British Columbia Coalition of Experiential Women) - Susan Davis
- Jamie Lee Hamilton - Transgender Sex Worker Activist
- Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres - Lee Lakeman
- Pivot Legal Society - Elin Sigurdson
- FIRST – Esther Shannon

The forum will present an opportunity for the public to hear and air
different perspectives on the sex trade. A question and answer session
with the panel will follow the presentations.
**Childcare is provided.**

Time and place:
Tuesday, March 11, 2008, 6:30pm – 9:00 pm at the YWCA, 733 Beatty
Street, Vancouver.

Event titles

I need your help. You're just so much creative than I.

First I am looking for an enticing name for our new monthly Bondage Night at Libido Lounge, and I can't come up with anything on my own.

Second I am looking for an enticing name for our new Members Only Parties. A party where everything goes ...bondage, sex, spanking, swinging and socializing!

Send me your suggestions, and keep it as a one or two word title for each night please.

Come up with the winning name and you'll be gifted with tickets for you and your date to attend the night for free as my way of saying thank you!

Little Sisters undergoes change

This article reminded me of how things are changing in local sex-culture. This just seems so fast really. And makes me kinda sad.

I hear though, that Jim may run for City Councilor in Vancouver as his next pursuit.

Interesting thought!

friends that give

Another load of books were donated last night at the Members Party, SIXTY FOUR to be exact.

Five new DVD's and thousands of hours of music put on our portable hard-drive, by a friend.

And someone else brought in three new adult board games.

There was also half a dozen fitted sheets added to the collection.

A set of goat forceps.

Two packages of baby wipes.

And lest we forget the three massive rolls of plastic and tarping.

All for Libido Lounge. Our booty collection is inspiring, we truly are an adult playground!

Then there was the dozen long stemmed roses for ME, along with a box of chocolates from a hot guy in leather shorts and vest.

Today is all about recovery. Two parties, two nights in a row, is enough to leave me feeling weary.
