Residents of red light areas very happy, says study

Thu, Jul 28, 2016, 12:00 PM
Residents enjoy living in red light areas and regard the goings-on in their areas as 'better than daytime television,' a new study claims.

Families also see the scantily dressed prostitutes in nearby massage parlours as 'neighbours who put the bins out like everyone else'.

Blackpool-born Dr Emily Cooper, of the University of Central Lancashire, interviewed more than 50 residents, prostitutes, and police and council workers over 18 months.

She was astonished by the findings which she says 'smashed' her preconceived ideas about the impact of massage parlours in Cookson Street and Central Drive in the UK.

Dr Cooper said: "The ***** industry, specifically ***** work and prostitution, has long been perceived and regulated as a 'dirty and disorderly' feature of residential communities.

"The stereotypical, and unfair, view of ***** workers is that they are vectors of disease and social contagions; it's a moral hangover from the Victorians."

One resident even told her that watching the comings and goings around parlours was 'better than daytime television'.

Dr Cooper, 28, continued: "Very few residents in the study explicitly stated that they would like to see the red light area removed.
