 Sex Ads Banned from Jobcentres in Britain
Ads for lap-dancers, webcam performers and strippers have been banned from job centres by the British government.

The Government feels the move would protect jobseekers from having to consider jobs they are uncomfortable doing.

"It's absolutely wrong the Government advertises jobs that could support the exploitation of people," Sky News quoted Employment Minister Chris Grayling as saying.

"We shouldn't put vulnerable people in an environment where they're exposed to these types of jobs and could feel under pressure to work in the sex industry," he said.

The Jobcentre Plus network will no longer advertise jobs that involve the direct sexual stimulation of others - such as strippers, topless barmaids and lap-dancers.

However, they will continue to accept vacancies in the retail, manufacturing and distribution sectors of the industry, such as a cleaning job in a lap dancing club or making lingerie.

The ban follows a public consultation that revealed concerns about the ads, and also indicated people who worked in the industry could be vulnerable to harassment and discrimination.

The ban is an interim measure as the Government intends to introduce permanent legislation.
