Yes to Sex Tourism in Africa? 

Afterall, “if you legalize a substance that can be detrimental to the body, you can legalize sex as a choice. My body, my choice.” Freedom and choice are necessary human rights that should not be taken away from anyone. Nonetheless, given the high rate of illiteracy and the very high rate of poverty in Africa, brought on by unfair international practices and low levels of leadership in the continent, prostitution has been detrimental to African women and should be reasonably regulated. Prostitution is one of the key causes of HIV/AIDS, other ailments and death among poor women in Africa. For now, we say no to sex tourism and to criminalization of sex work. A resounding yes to wider education and stronger regulation of sex work.
