You have to give them credit for using the idea after all a happy resident is a healthy one. Hey the elderly are alive not dead so why not have a little fun. Recently a British nursing home has had to defend their practices of hiring prostitutes for their residents regularly after local authorities found out. The Times of London reports the Chaseley nursing home in Eastbourne, England, regularly schedules sex workers who meet with residents in a special room with a red sock on the door where they can have privacy and caregivers check on them every 15 minutes. The nursing home mostly caters to ex-soldiers. The current manager Sue Wyatt told The Sun that these third party consultants arrange for these sex workers who provide the residents with what they need. Helena Barrow, the ex-manager, explained that these professionals offer both therapeutic services to the residents and help the staff. She continued to explain,”If you have a resident who is groping staff, one way of resolving that problem is to get a sex worker in who is trained to deal with that situation… The fact is sex workers are allowed by law to sexually enable people but care workers are not.” The Inquisitor reports that the East Sussex County Council is looking into the practice to make sure the residents are not getting harmed. Another nursing home Kildegaarden in Denmark also reportedly uses the practice but is greeted with skepticism by politicians reports Bloomberg. Slate magazine’s 2007 Sex Issue reports that a survey found the same year about a quarter of Americans between 75 and 85 were having sex. Earlier in the month, The Sun reported on a brothel planned and designed for disable clients with transportation provided by a non-profit Para Doxies in Milton Keynes, England. “People have the same sexual urges whether they’re disabled or not. Everyone deserves to experience and enjoy sexual contact,” said former madam Becky Adams, who will head up Para Doxies.
