Cape Town drafts sex tourism plan

The tourism authorities in the South African city of Cape Town are planning to offer advice to visitors enquiring about the services of prostitutes.

The manager of Cape Town Tourism, Cheryl Ozinsky, told the BBC that her office was drawing up guidelines which properly-run sex tourism outlets would have to abide by.

She said these would focus on fair conditions for employees, hygiene, access to sex education, and regular medical tests.

She said the aim was to help the fight against Aids.

The alternative, she said, was to sweep the issue under the carpet and pretend that the sex tourism industry doesn't exist.
