"In Taksim square in the heart of Istanbul, Hayrettin Bulan reads a declaration calling for male brothels. The call is being made by the anti-poverty group "Sefkat Der". The group is fighting for an end to state-run brothels. Bulan says their radical move to call for brothels for women comes out of frustration. They had to change tactics in their anti-prostitution fight, she says. [...]
Opponents of prostitution like Sefkat Der want prostitution to be abolished. But since the state has refused to heed their call so far, the opponents have changed their tactics and are now calling for equality and therefore the introduction of brothels where women can visit male prostitutes..."
