    Default The future of Sosua

    With the attempt at ending the prostitution in Sosua, so that Sosua may be reborn as a family destination, does anyone know what the actual plan is?

    Would it not make more sense to just move the prostitution to another area and attempt to 'control' it? It's not like you can end it, the mongers will continue to come, and the ladies will continue offer their services.

    If the problem is that families don't want to walk down the street filled with prostitutes, then by moving the prostitution to a sanctioned area, would that not solve the problem and keep business going?

    This has been discussed to a large extent on DR1. While there are no laws against a prostitute to offer her services directly to a john, there are laws against other people pimping those services. Setting up businesses to aid and promote prostitution could be considered illegal. That may be why a "red light district" is hard to realize.

    If the prostitution were not "in your face" you would not see the various actions taken over the years like closing the fronts of businesses, dress codes, etc. The government certainly has no easy and viable approach on this.

    What about the families living there? Don't they count?

    I'm not sure there has been any decision to make Sosua a "family destination."

    That is a classic Straw Man argument.

    Yes, they're the ones making the change. Do you really think we have any say in the matter?

    There was a move to institute a semi-official "red light" area near the new Cestur station a couple of years ago. The idea being that the business could continue, away from where the hoards of families would go. Somebody actually started constructing a place where the bars could be. Of course, as the plan changes with the wind here, the construction was brought to a screeching halt by the "powers that be" and the scheme never got off the ground.
