Just because one girl is completely devoid of any morals or ethics, doesn't mean we all are. Some people are seriously way too eager to pass judgement and put all of humanity in the same basket.


Reality check. Most parents would be completely livid if their son or daughter behaved in this manner. It's about time people who broke the law were made an example of, but as long as we have New Labour for a government, that's never going to happen.

The court was too lenient with this amateur hooker. They should have booked her for prostitution, solicitation etc. If she wants to play the game, she ought to be able to pay up as well. She can easily sleep her way back to all that money in no time. Unless she is locked up behind bars along with other prostitutes for a couple of weeks, there is really no meaning in this punishment.

This kind of thing is not shocking at all. It is only the old timers here who find this thing to be something shocking or new. Hell, there were girls in my highschool who would have sex for money or goods and that was in the 90s. How is she any different ?? She just moved on to better pastures.

Lets face it, for a woman prostitute, the per hour pay is probably one of the highest for any profession, legal or illegal.

I feel sorry for her clients who were probably not told they were committing a 2 crimes at the same time.

prostitution is LEGAL in the UK , in fact its legal in most countries around the world , its the advertising of said profession which is illegal.

Women are just as perverse and just as loose as any man be they of any age. In fact girls are more promiscuous at an early age as they mature faster than boys. Today this kind of activity is not surprising in the least from girls of that age.

You are simple ignorant to the realities of kids these days. What parents "know" and what kids do are usually worlds apart. The parents who actually find out about thier kids activities are few and far between. Also, most parents would not actually be interested to delve into the sordid sexual histories of their children as that would be both intrusive and unwelcome by the children themselves.

I don't understand why some folks think this is a recent development in human nature. Traci Lords was active in the Porn Industry at the age of 15.
She used fake IDs and nobody was the wiser. She was doing hardcore XXX stuff at this age.
I don't think she ever went to jail for it and this was quite some time ago.

I don't think the Gov should have taken her money without making arrests of some sort.
Take her money and don't charge her? She'll be back at it in no time. Way to go Gov.

I just don't get it. I get the part that this girl was a minor,and therefore not legal to consent. What I don't get is all the outrage at prostitution in general.
Anyone that has held a job where they had to put forth physical effort,was selling their bodies for money.Plain and simple,if you use your body to make money YOU are a prostitute! In a day and age where the general consensus is,a woman has controll over her own body,what's the problem?

Prostitution is a marketable skill,and honest,at least you know in advance what your end results will be. Prostitution is a personal choice,just like a political affiliation,or religion.

The real SHOCKER in this story is that a 15 year old girl is SAVING her money. I mean isn't the whole reason a young girl wants money is to go shopping?

Was she saving up for some goal she has? Was she planning on helping someone with the money? I'd be interested to know what her purpose was.

As for what she did, it's sad. The money she makes will come and go, but she'll never get her innocence back. Corrupt at 15 or 14? What a waste.

technically - they can`t actually keep the money , since prostiutuion isn`t illegal in the UK.

I have read throught the thread and God,morality,and gut-reaction aside,I personally would need to know more of this young girl's backstory before I passed judgement.
Perhaps she needed to do "something" to better her lot in life and at 15,what are your options except to become a ward of the state unless you have someone to care for you and provide for your needs?
Many women in general run out of options in life for many reasons and not all of their own making,some just earlier than others and maybe,just maybe she was trying in her way using what she had to earn herself a shot at a something "better?"
Before I cast judgement on her,I'd pass it on the "officials" who took her hard earned money from her like they had a right to do so: why not set up a fund for her and offer her some real life-options so she might be ready to use the money wisely when she becomes of "legal" age?
Naw...easier to steal from her and throw what's left of her to the wolves.

Apart from her age..and 15 is really not that uncommon for both boys and girls alike to be having sex,especially in the uk.I dont see where all this *she must be having troubles* *Wheres her morals!?* I think she found the easiest way to make quick money from a business ie prostitution which is as old as civilization and is rampant in every society...Like the other poster said though,i'd like to know what she was saving it for.

So you think.

So if you made up your mind already, see first quotation above, why would you need an answer?


This is a general thought and not directed at anyone in particular:

Most humans are driven by the desire to possess money. It is hardly a matter of age. But we are all different and we all have our own desires. Nobody can judge someone else based on his/her own limitations.

That is curious indeed, I know that I can't save money very well, and I'm only about a year older than her. Curious indeed.

Honestly though, it's not a big surprise that she's selling herself, it may be my lack of faith in the human race, or just the fact that I think in realistic terms, but at least she's using condoms. I'm not saying prostitution is a good thing, but you've got to make money somehow, and honestly, she can just go make more if she hasn't been jailed.

exactly true. I remember being very mixed up about sex when I was young - I thought I was supposed to be and feel things I had no experience to be or feel. the only real guidance I had about sex was what I read in magazines and historical romance novels (not so much media available to me back then, in the early70's). I remember my older cousins teasing me about being a virgin at 12. 12!! we were sexualized too, very young, and had I been exposed to exhibitionism and prostitution as a norm at that age, who knows? the majority of us don't have a good sense of our self at that age, our brains aren't even fully formed yet, let alone our sense of dignity and morality. in a society where sex and money are so glorified, is it any surprise young girls will find a way to pursue both??

shame on everyone who villifies this girl. she may not be a victim in the sense that she may have made her own choices, but she's as much a victim of the media and morals of today's capitalist world as the rest of us.

just one last thought... unless the teacher who went into her bag is a klepto, she or he must have had some reason for doing so - either a suspicion, someone ratted, or she felt that the girl was disturbed or at risk and wanted to help. unless of course (s)he had something against the girl and was simply looking for something to nail her with (you never know eh).

this girl obviously needs some guidance and morals and sense of self worth instilled in her. she would NOT get that in a jail (shame on those who think that would be the solution).

However, the point is how sexualised and how would that sexuality be expressed? I think it's misleading to think that puberty is the real or perhaps only catalyst in this. Puberty is, in a sense 'neutral' in that it awakens or creates a sexuality, but it's the pressure of culture that shapes and determines how that eventually manifests. Arguably, you could say that, thanks to mass-media, those pressures are actually now in place and being felt before the natural/neutral pressure of puberty.


You could also state that the culture of religion manipulates human behavior. The insistence of maintaining ones virginity until marriage is unnatural, marriage itself is also unnatural. Does it mean that that behavior is wrong?

ok while I might agree about maintaining ones virginity until marriage being unnatural at least for some people, I don't get how marriage is unnatural? I'm married, and it seems like the most natural thing in the world. and I didn't get married young either - not until I was 40. you could say I didn't get married until then because it never seemed natural until then.

My parents have been married for 45 years - is that unnatural?

There are animals that mate for life - is that unnatural?

I would still say that a 15 year old prostitute is one very mixed up young woman, whether she realizes it or not. It's not natural to sell your body like a commodity, especially not at that age.

Knowing our government and how it always seems to get hold of the wrong end of the stick and balls everything up, I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped any charges for prostitution, under age sex or soliciting and took her to court for dodging the tax on her money!

And something else while we're at it, where is this girls parents? They're the ones who should be publickly flogged for allowing their daughter to get into prostitution in the first place. At fifteen she should have been in the family home where her parents knew she was safe not selling herself to sicko's on street corners.

To be honest, I think that marriage is only natural for some people. I am honestly very happy for people that are able to be married for 45+ years!! ..Or any amount of time, when it feels natural and the two people involved knows it was the right choice for them.

But the reality is, more marriages seem to end in divorce than not. I would say that it should be more common for people to be careful about making such a big choice.

My honest opinion on human sexuality is that we are VERY social animals.. Just like a group of gorillas, it would seem natural that any one person is compatible to any number of others.

Only until someone makes the conscious decision that they found a life partner that they can be with forever.. Marriage should be at the back of their minds.

As for the girl, I kinda agree with the person who said that she took advantage of sex and wealth, in a way that she could -- Both being heavily glorified to us all from a young age. And to be honest, with this horrible economy.. I have wondered if MORE people are making the decision to do this, as jobs become more scarce.

I think all the failed marriage at least in part have to do with how quickly people seem to jump into marriage. I agree marriage should be at the back of their minds - if people have marriage as a goal, chances are they may make some bad decisions. I used to say I didn't want to get married; hence, getting married at 40! I walked in eyes wide open.

I agree that we are likely compatible to many; however, are we matrimonially compatible to many? Perhaps not, which again leads to the high divorce rate.

What it comes down to is many people are living shallow lives, trying to keep up to some idea of what they think they should be - what the media and society tells them they should be. I think that's the only thing, likely, this girl is a "victim" of. She was taking advantage of sex, of her sex, for sure. But why save so much money?? I wonder about that...

I kinda wonder what she was saving up for too, but hey it's not really the world's business...

Still though, at 15.. maybe she was saving for a car. Maybe she was trying to help her parents with a financial mess they had.. We don't know her situation, or if it really was in desperation to help her parents out with a huge problem.. and they didn't know?

Just speculating.. as a normal 15 year old would be having the time of their life, buying everything they see!
