School for Johns: Reports and Critiques

Below are critiques of THEIR 'Schools for Johns,' part of a repressive trend in law enforcement which unfairly scapegoats clients and male sexuality. Clients are entrapped in prostitution stings and coerced into paying a large fee ($1000 in San Francisco) to be insulted and chastised as part of a diversion program. The SWOP-USA (OUR) John's School is THE OPPOSITE, a supportive program in which sex workers and clients can learn from each other in a sex-positive and supportive atmosphere.
