Dutch Driving Instructors Can Now Accept Sex As Payment

0 41

The new law, called ‘Ride for a Ride’, has just been introduced by the Dutch government for any student as long as they are over the age of 18.

Prostitution is legal in Holland, if the person has a valid escort licence and pays their taxes on a self-employment basis, with this new law taking things one step further.

But not everyone is impressed by the ruling.

Gert-Jan Segers, from the conservative Christian Union Party, tabled a question to the Dutch parliament saying the practice should remain illegal.

Responding, Netherlands Transport Minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen and Justice minister Ard van der Steur said: ‘It’s not about offering sexual activities for remuneration, but offering a driving lesson.

‘It is important that the initiative lies with the driving instructor, and focuses on offering a driving lesson, with the payment provided in sexual acts.

‘When a sexual act is offered in lieu of financial payment, that is prostitution.’

Web searches for ‘Ride for a Ride’ have apparently increased after the law got the green light.
