Letter: 'Convenient' for him, exploitation for the prostitute

I FIND the hypocrisy of men who use prostitutes, such as Mario Laurenza, nauseating (Letters, 20 September).

How convenient for men who wish to avoid the complications of 'relationships' to be serviced by a tribe of women who are willing to work long hours for low wages. How convenient to divide life into 'the normal' on the one hand, and the illicit, irregular and deviant, on the other.

Why should men like Mr Laurenza be serviced by family, wife and friends and prostitutes while women workers, in the sex industry and in society generally, are underpaid and treated as second-class citizens?
