A Welsh government website has promoted stripping, lap dancing and being an escort as “aspirational career opportunities” to young people.
The website’s support of jobs in sex establishments apparently came as a surprise to Wales first minister, who launched an investigation into the site after being questioned about it Tuesday, according to the Huffington Post.
The website told readers that careers in stripping and lap dancing could earn an individual between £24,000 and £48,000 a year, according to Sky News.
The government’s site advertised the jobs of escorts, strippers and lap dancers as void of prostitution and sexual activity, glossing over or blatantly failing to disclose information about the career choices.
"Escorts provide companionship to the client when attending events such as a formal dinner or the theatre,” the site said. It continued its questionable description, stating that women hired as escorts “accompany” single businessmen to events and it is an offence for an escort agency to “incite escorts to act as prostitutes.”
The website also included links to websites where an individual could pay for "transsexual post-operation and submissive escorts".
