Thread: Are you hobbying less these days because of c-36?

  1. #1

    Are you hobbying less these days because of c-36?

    I hobby the same as before, the SPs and MPs are complaining that things are really slow. I suspect some guys are cutting down or cutting out.

    C-36 hasn't changed a thing for me, business is slow because it's winter which is generally the slow season and is on it's way out just like Harper(thank god), as the temperature warms up so will business.

    Totally agree with Joe, I remember last February was incredibly slow. Everyone I know who has been in this business a while has told me that February is the worst month. It's just a seasonal thing and it will pass.

    I actually consider myself fortunate in that I have stayed pretty busy for this time of the year. I'm definitely not complaining.

    January and Febuary...worst months for sure...

    But probably the best month for the brave souls who don't bow down to the cold and all :P You shouldn't have too much problem seeing the girls you want to see since its slower for everybody. But i know some girls that just DON'T work during these times of the year, because they know the business will be crap...

    For me, probably not right now, but i'll certainly be more discreet & careful the next time i'm in town. No one's been charged yet in Mtl (as a john) since the new law came into effect, but i wouldn't want to be the first one either.

    To answer the ?'in, No. And Joe, Tianna and HMike are correct that it is just a seasonal thing as always. The ONLY thing that will change with me is not taking anymore chances off backpage or announce like before unless she has been reviewed here by someone i know, aka a friend. Not worth the risk when there are so many reputable agency and Indy's here on Merb.

    I didn't think this sort of thing had a season, I'm only a few months in so I don't know what it's like in the summer. I would have never thought that the cold would keep people away.

    I actually like coming in from the freezing cold and into the arms of a warm body.

    Maybe that's why I never had an issue with someone being available.

    Well the reasons are from my knowledge that people come to mtl (out of town people) to enjoy other stuff as well, wich winter, especially cold crap winter, make it hard to partook in. They prefer to cum when there is festivals in the summer and plenty of stuff to do.

    Other people just like to receive SPs in more light cloathing, stuff like that...

    I think tough its really the outsiders that change the business dynamic more, cause as you say yourself, for a montrealer, the difference between winter and summer, if you receive an SP at home is probably very minimal...lol

    Maybe some dude don't enjoy going out in the cold to got to an incall as well too... anyway, just reporting what i personally experienced and was tell by experimented bookers.

    To answer your question, I am hobbying about the same as I did prior to that dark day in December (when c-36 became law). I am a hobbyist of opportunity, and have still seen at least SP from BP since then. I honestly can't see LE bothering with "sting" operations unless things such as underage girls, human trafficking are at play.

    Interestingly TERB had a thread with this article. To my knowledge, no one in Quebec either has been charged as a "John"

    I would have just posted a link to the Sun News network site, but that is a different story about why they aren't around anymore!

    DANIEL PROUSSALIDIS & IKE RAI | SUN NEWS NETWORK

    http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews...04-151017.html

    TORONTO - No charges have been laid against johns in Ontario even though it became a crime to buy sex from a prostitute about two months ago, Sun News Network has learned.

    Ontario's Office of the Attorney General says by January 26 of this year, courts had received 14 charges under new Criminal Code provisions dealing with prostitution that came into effect in early December.

    Most of those charges are under two new provisions to deal with pimping, but police have also laid four charges for the new crime of advertising the sale of sexual services.

    However, none of the charges are connected to the actual "purchase of sexual services" - something the feds made illegal in hopes of reducing the demand for prostitutes.

    Asked about the stats from her own officials, Ontario's attorney general seemed caught off-guard.

    "Listen, it's not the information that I have," said Madeleine Meilleur. "So, we are going to check on that and we'll come back to you."

    Pressed for an answer, Meilleur insisted the law is being enforced in Ontario.

    "Of course it's to the police to lay charges," she said. "And we are not directing the police how to do their work. But the law has been passed, and we are applying the new law."

    Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has said she has "grave concerns" about the new anti-prostitution law, and has asked Meilleur's office to prepare options in case the law is found to be unconstitutional.

    Still, Wynne has also said, for now, the law should be enforced as is.

    Federal Justice Minister Peter MacKay has called the criminalizing of the purchase of sex a key component of a "made in Canada" approach toward fighting prostitution.

    Even so, the lack of charges against johns in Canada's most populous province doesn't seem to faze him.

    "Whenever a new law comes into effect there may be a lag time," said MacKay in Ottawa. "There may be a bit of a period of adjustment."

    The minister also insists Canada's new anti-prostitution law is effective, even before charges have been laid under one of its key provisions.

    "Keep in mind this is a whole package of not only one particular law, but it also comes with funding and programming to assist those involved in prostitution in finding an exit strategy," he said. "So it is starting to have an effect and impact."

    It's not clear yet if criminal charges against johns have been laid against johns outside of Ontario.
