European Prostitution Laws

The United States is not somewhere we are ever going to work. And Smooci notwithstanding, I do not see us going into the Far East, South America, Middle East or Eastern Europe. So, I will just discuss Europe. 

There are a number of subcategories within the legal frameworks. So though we are focusing on Barcelona escorts, it is worth looking a little wider.

  • Countries where prostitution and managing brothels and escorts is legal: Greece, Austria (since 2014, Belgium (informally), Germany (since 2002), Netherlands, Switzerland,  
  • Countries where prostitution is legal but managing a brothel or escorts is illegal: United Kingdom, Denmark (since 1999), Italy, Portugal, Luxemburg, Monaco,  
  • Countries where prostitution is legal but customers are prosecuted: Ireland (since 2017), France (disastrously since 2016),  
  • Countries where all sex work is illegal: Gibraltar(!) 

Spain, as you would expect, is a complicated anomaly. Prostitution itself is legal in Spain, but pimping is not. Owning an establishment where prostitution takes place is legal if the owner neither derives financial gain from prostitution nor hires any person for the purposes of selling sex, because prostitution is not considered a job, and has no legal recognition (though income from prostitution is, of course, taxable) Most regions do not regulate prostitution, but the government of Catalonia offers licenses for persons “to gather people to practice prostitution”.

Strictly speaking, we should make it clear that we charge a commission for advertising and answering the telephone. Not for prostitution. 

On the face of the above, the law is changing in opposite directions in Europe over roughly the same timescale.  

Germany and Austria effectively legalised the sex industry (not the same as or good as decriminalisation) in 2002 and 2014 respectively.  Denmark decriminalised prostitution (but not brothel keeping or managing escorts) in 1999. 

France and Ireland introduced laws criminalising the buyers of sex in 2016 and 2017, following Sweden and Norway, who did the same 1999 and 2008. In the cases of France and Ireland, it immediately led to problems (lower prices, increased violence against sex workers, lower condom use) and sex workers have suffered. Sex workers continue to protest against the laws and academics repeat their findings, but we have seen that politicians will never let facts get in the way of their narrative. Especially not in ostensibly Roman Catholic countries.

Women Not Protecting Women

It must be said that the more extensive ladies’ development still avoids sex labourers and even effectively battles against them. Continuously in the anecdotal structure of battling dealing. Which, as we probably am aware, truly isn’t the issue that individuals describe it. Horrendous when it occurs, yet just not so normal.

Society should discover methods for changing their demeanour and lawful ways to deal with the more extensive sex industry. In any case, rationale is probably not going to have wherever in the discussion. Government officials don’t follow up on reality. Even in Spain, where there are no laws at all related to the work of Madrid escorts. They follow up on what they see to be the popular’s assessment; which is exhibited by who yells most intense and undermines their re-appointment or advancement possibilities. A solitary model will show the point.

An escape clause made sex work, rehearsed away from public scrutiny, lawful in the State of Rhode Island somewhere in the range of 2003 and 2009.Baylor University financial analyst Scott Cunningham and his associates found that during those years the sex exchange developed. Yet, Cunningham focuses to some other significant discoveries: During that time-span the quantity of assaults answered to police in the state declined by over a third. What’s more, gonorrhoea among all ladies declined by 39 percent. Obviously, changes in prostitution laws probably won’t be the main source, yet Cunningham says, “the exchange off is in the event that you make it more secure somewhat, you develop the business.”

Rhode Island made sex work unlawful again in 2009, to some degree under strain from some enemy of dealing advocates. That is the thing; the discussion about sex work consistently gets connected to dealing, and consistently without any realities or actualities made up on the spot from an example of one. Certainties won’t sell society or legislators. What’s more, legislators won’t push forward of society.

Be that as it may, society is moving quickly toward the acknowledgement of prostitution and sex work. This can be seen effectively in the volume of enormous spending plan and prominent TV projects and movies centring on or highlighting sex work; The Girlfriend Experience (film and TV), The Client List, The Deuce, Hung, Harlots, Secret Diary Of A London Call Girl, Game Of Thrones, Tipping The Velvet, Cathouse, West World, After Porn Ends, Hot Girls Wanted and Hustlers.

Why Does The Women’s Movement Hate Some Women?

It has to be said that the wider women’s movement still excludes sex workers and even actively campaigns against them. Always in the fictional framework of fighting trafficking. Which, as we know, really is not the issue that people make it out to be. Horrific when it happens, but just not that common.

Society will have to find ways of changing their attitudes and legal approaches to the broader sex industry. But logic is unlikely to have any place in the conversation. Politicians do not act on fact. Except in Switzerland, where Geneva escorts work in a safe legal environment. They act on what they perceive to be the public’s opinion; which is demonstrated by who shouts loudest and threatens their re-election or promotion chances. A single example will demonstrate the point.

A loophole made sex work, practiced behind closed doors, legal in the State of Rhode Island between 2003 and 2009.Baylor University economist Scott Cunningham and his colleagues found that during those years the sex trade grew. But Cunningham points to some other important findings: During that time period the number of rapes reported to police in the state declined by over a third. And gonorrhea among all women declined by 39 percent. Of course, changes in prostitution laws might not be the only cause, but Cunningham says, “the trade-off is if you make it safer to some degree, you grow the industry.”

Rhode Island made sex work illegal again in 2009, in part under pressure from some anti-trafficking advocates. That’s the thing; the debate about sex work always gets linked to trafficking, and always with no facts or facts made up on the spot from a sample of one. Facts will not sell society or politicians. And politicians will not move ahead of society. 

But society is moving rapidly toward the acceptance of prostitution and sex work. This can be seen easily in the volume of big budget and high profile television programmes and films centring on or featuring sex work; The Girlfriend Experience (film and TV), The Client List, The Deuce, Hung, Harlots, Secret Diary Of A London Call Girl, Game Of Thrones, Tipping The Velvet, Cathouse, West World, After Porn Ends, Hot Girls Wanted and Hustlers.

The Sex Industry In Europe

Mainland Europe has been viewed as progressively liberal in its perspectives toward the most seasoned calling. Also, truly that has been valid. The women of the Moulin Rouge and Folies Bergere, and the streetwalkers in Montmartre and on the Champs Elysee are set up French social symbols and have been deified from Toulouse Lautrec through Picasso and forward.

The Netherlands has the house of ill-repute windows in the De Wallen shady area of town of Amsterdam where anything has been practically allowed as long as the ladies were regarded and safe. And in a far more hidden way, the mature London escorts of Classic Courtesans ply their trade.

Germany and Switzerland, regardless of their Calvinist and Catholic roots, have both legitimized houses of ill-repute and prostitution since a long time before Germany turned into an assembled nation in the eighteenth century. In the nineteen twenties (the period of the film Cabaret) prostitution was completely acknowledged and upheld as a social decent. Houses of ill-repute and clubs were regularly one and the equivalent. The main time Germany prohibited prostitution was during the Nazi time. The ace race needed to attack France and Holland to discover monetarily secured sex.

The late nineteenth century saw a nadir for the sex business, yet that has changed over the most recent twenty years. The accessibility – universality – of pornography, has made it standard and even popular. There was a rush of “hooker chic” during the disco time, however this is an a lot more prominent and likely irreversible marvel. We have moved from VIPs engaging in sexual relations tapes discharged and getting to be more extravagant and increasingly well known (Pamela Anderson) to individuals getting to be big names since they discharged a sex tape (Kim Kardashian) and now individuals are transferring their home recordings as a “side hustle” to make a couple of quid on the off chance that it gets enough perspectives on YouPorn.

It is a prosaism to discuss the hyper sexualisation of society and the media. Be that as it may, that doesn’t imply that it isn’t valid. Sex is prominent all over the place and in pretty much every specific circumstance. This makes one flood of weight for change in the public arena.

More weight for change originates from ladies properly guaranteeing responsibility for bodies, their unrestrained choice to self-assurance and their sexuality. Ladies from each heading of the socio-world of politics are seeing sex fill in as a litmus trial of ladies’ entitlement to pick what befalls them and survey their opportunity inside society. At the point when Amnesty International backers for the decriminalization of all sex fill in as a right to speak freely issue and to battle sex dealing, there is something changing on the planet.

Decriminalising sex work

Amnesty International and The Economist are very different organisations, but they have reached similar conclusions on policies regarding sex markets. Last August, the International Council of Amnesty International decided to back the complete decriminalisation of prostitution. Decriminalising prostitution, they reasoned, would better protect the human rights of sex workers, and be better for the health and safety of all involved. The Amnesty’s International Council took care to declare opposition to criminalising sex work for both clients and for sex workers. Criminalisation both on the demand side (clients) and the supply side (sex workers) implies pushing this ‘market’ into the hidden economy, increasing the risks that sex workers face.

Perhaps less predictably, The Economist, in a report on paid sex in 2014, also argued for a complete liberalisation of the market and against criminalisation policies. Robert Skidelsky, a prominent Keynesian economist and member of the House of Lords, recently joined the cause. In the interest of protecting the health and safety of sex workers, he advocated against criminalisation and in favour of regulation of the market.

At the same time, a number of prominent actors and organisations continue to advocate the so-called ‘Swedish approach’. Since its adoption in Norway and Iceland, this is more accurately called the ‘Nordic approach’, and is enshrined in the Kvinnofrid (violence against women) act of 1999, which condemns the industry as a locus of female oppression, and aims to combat the oppression of sex workers by criminalising sex workers’ clients. The Swedish government has promoted the approach domestically and abroad, through public education and conferences, fact sheets and intense lobbying at the EU and the UN.

As economists, we believe that public policy ought to be based on relative welfare considerations. In other words, under which arrangements are the actors, and the public, better off? Throughout our research on the economics of sex work, we have asked ourselves a set of basic questions around the welfare of those involved. What do we know about the agents, the prostitutes, the pimps, the clients and others? What types of people are they in terms of their sociodemographic characteristics, behaviours and motivations? Surveys and studies provided the data. How do they compare with the population as a whole? Importantly, as economists, we were particularly interested in the various institutional arrangements – streets, brothels, parlours, apartments – in which different actors might act, and how these respond to different regulatory arrangements. Regulation, after all, is not one thing, but rather exists on a wide spectrum, with different modes and degrees of criminalisation, decriminalisation and legalisation.

We have spent 15 years researching these questions using data from US and UK clients and an international sample of sex workers from eastern European and former Soviet Union countries, as well as from Africa, Latin America, China and South East Asian countries. We have worked with many collaborators and subjected our work to extensive peer review and professional criticism in papers, conferences and books. Here’s what we can tell you.

Sex workers, or prostitutes, are not just women. They are also men and transgender people. They face risks to their health, risks of violent assault, and risk of fraud (not getting paid for their services). In every case, these risks are higher where prostitution is criminalised, partly because criminalisation makes collaboration with both medical personnel and law enforcement more difficult. Criminalisation of sex work also makes the detection of under-age or trafficked people more difficult.

Perhaps surprisingly, our research on sexually exploited trafficked women shows that women who work in the streets are in some ways better off than sex workers in parlours, clubs or hotels. Street workers enjoy more freedom of movement, suffer less physical and sexual abuse, and are more likely to have access to health services than women who work in parlours, clubs or hotels. These market dynamics of sex work apply to women trafficked into sex work, too. For both clients and for sex workers, demand-side and supply-side, criminalisation pushes the market into secluded and, for the workers, isolating places. Flats, clubs and massage parlours are more separate from the rest of society. The welfare of sexually trafficked women decreases in these dangerous environments.

Sex workers’ clients are mostly men, but not exclusively. They are, for the most part, average guys. When we matched client data in both the US and the UK with the rest of the male population, we found no difference between the two groups on most measures. Still, clients care about the effects of buying sex on their reputations, and they face more risk when prostitution is criminalised. But by and large, clients of sex workers tend to be risk-takers. There is a high correlation between paying for sex and engaging in other risky behaviours. To many men, criminalised prostitution is actually more attractive than decriminalised or legal sex work. So pushing prostitution into the shadows not only makes sex work more dangerous, it actually increases demand.

I Do Not Like Car Parks

I would not regularly be discovered dead in an underground vehicle stop. Such a large number of individuals I knew had been discovered dead in underground vehicle parks. It is a word related danger for individuals in a large number of occupations. What’s more, from being a young fellow straight out of school, it had been my parcel that those were actually the sort of occupations that I would in general be enticed or constrained into. Simply good fortunes I presume.

Be that as it may, it is similar to they say in the MasterCard adverts. Paying to have somebody shot to death in an underground vehicle stop? Five thousand euros. Seeing it coming so it doesn’t transpire? Invaluable.

The issue with working in probably the most well known and breathtaking places of interest in the Mediterranean is that – by definition – they are occupied and brimming with decent cars. So vehicle parks are required. And if you are working with Ibiza escorts you cannot work without a car as you need to go from one place to the next fast. What’s more, underground is the main place that they can be. Also, in the event that I have a circumstance where a driver isn’t reasonable, vehicle parks are basically unavoidable.

It is somewhat similar to swimming in decent warm oceans. The decisions may be among swimming and suffocating, however regardless you have to watch out for sharks.

Be that as it may, ashore, the sharks look somewhat changed and move a little slower. Be that as it may, I am glad to state, they are likewise a damn site progressively unsurprising.

I strolled down from Plaza Antonio Banderas into the vehicle stop by the staircase farthest from my vehicle and furthermore from the gathering I had been visiting. The better to look at things. They say that it isn’t suspicion when individuals truly are out to get you. What’s more, for a wide range of reasons that will turn out to be clear later, I am not neurotic. I am simply cautious.

Remaining alive when individuals really are out to get you can either be down to fortunes or being cautious and indicating decision making ability. Speculation which I incline toward? There is a familiar axiom which is completely ideal for all that it is a buzzword. Remaining alive whern individuals need to execute you relies upon practical insight. Trustworthiness is the aftereffect of experience. Experience is frequently the aftereffect of terrible judgment.

A Day Running Escort Agencies

Most days are equivalent to some other day – you get up, practice wash and dress and leave for work. Perhaps get some morning meal in transit. Different days you get up, exercise, wash and dress and leave for work and take off for breakfast. In any case, at that point you find that while in transit to one of the eateries you use – blend it up as propensities can be destructive – you end up being trailed by a couple of folks driving a yellow Hummer H2. That is to say, truly, for screws purpose, who attempts to tail somebody in yellow vehicle, not to mention a screwing Hummer.

As it happens I am pretty observation mindful consistently in any case. In any case, a visually impaired folks hound will see a three ton banana tailing them without leaving a space. On the off chance that you are in the matter of running escort offices and speaking to the best escort Cheshire has to offer you generally need to keep an eye open. In any case, an enormous rough terrain military vehicle painted banana yellow is truly cursed hard to miss in your back view reflect. Actually, it fills your mirror so that not exclusively can you not miss it, it is difficult to seen whatever else. It sort of emerges.

Indeed, even in some place like Knutsford in August where the roads are loaded up with mirror complete Lambos and metallic purple Rolls Royces. Aside from Prince, who could escape with it, who the damnation would do that to a Rolls Royce? Also, the vehicles are loaded up with conceited looking folks and their Knutsford escorts who are both dressing and getting a charge out of the people watching them.

Indeed, even there, the banana stodd out like, well, a three ton banana.

They had lifted me up as I fell off the principle A556 expressway toward Knutsford and onto the labyrinth of roundabouts that make the place a bad dream to tail somebody except if you are great, relaxed and working with a group of no less than three vehicles to continue exchanging. Toss in an infrequent stop and occupation done. That will flush ninety per cent of observation. Except if they are great.

It Is Not Just About Looks

The best and most wealthy escorts in the world are good looking but they have something more important than just beauty. The best top end international call girls have two big talents that the average prostitute does not. The first skill is that they know how to manipulate men. The second is that the very best and most wealthy prostitutes actually adore sex. When a woman likes make love with men, men will know that. Women who like to fuck are sure to be more popular as sex partners than women who do not enjoy sex. Certainly women can pretend to be having a good time in bed more easily than a man can. But unconsciously men know when a woman is really enjoying herself and they will pay more for that experience.

A woman who really enjoys sex will always make good money as a professional high class prostitute. Men always know when a woman is really enjoying sex. Whether they know it consciously or not, men always know when a woman is pretending to enjoy sex. When a woman really enjoys sex with a men, that man will be almost guaranteed to want more time with her. And when the woman is one who escorts Leeds clients as a high class escort, when a man wants more time with her that means more money for the woman. In the sex industry, more time is more money. If you are a whore, enjoying sex is the best way to make more money.

I used to make a lot of money when I was a whore. I made a lot of money while I was working as a prostitute and the main reason was not my beauty. The main reason I was so successful and became so rich as an international and very exclusive call girl is that sex is my passion. I have always had a lot of sex and I really enjoy it. Having sex is my hobby and I found a way of turning my hobby into a very rewarding job. My clients all knew that I was not pretending about enjoying sex with them. Most normal men want to have sex with a woman who is enjoying it.

Shagging & Cash

To a limited degree, I would state that with regards to dating, I take a genuine enthusiasm for concentrate how cash changes who we consent to date. Furthermore, it is much all the more fascinating when you examine who individuals at last wind up in a genuine association with. Obviously, in a “standard” relationship – if there is a wonder such as this – cash will dependably be an issue. What’s more, I don’t just allude to the lack of cash making issues and contentions, which it can and does – yet not for everybody. I know bunches of couples who are to a great degree content with no cash by any means. I additionally know bunches of affluent couples who despise absolutely loathe one another. The fact of the matter is that on the off chance that the relationship isn’t running great in each other zone, accounts will turn into an issue, regardless of whether the couple have excessively cash or too minimal expenditure.

Any blogger or columnist that has composed genuinely about these kind of things identifying with sentiment will have turned out to be exceptionally disagreeable and will have likewise have been forced to bear bunches of contempt, pessimism and misuse. That will essentially have originated from escorts Las Palmas who trust that anybody saying that females appreciate how much cash a man has and how liberal he is with it a man it somehow or another degrades ladies and is against women’s liberation.

In the event that you have perused any extremely fair blogger or analyst who examines sex and connections, you without uncertainty will have seen how regularly cash emerges starting at course, cash is similarly as critical in any discussion about escorts and the sex business. Sex and cash, it appears, go together like sex and cash.

Heaps of articles have been composed about the financial matters of sentiment and how cash influences who we date and also how the ways of managing money of a male who is looking to get a date with a lady are utilized to demonstrate whether they esteem the lady that they are dating. Essentially, a man who burns through cash on a lady is viewed as a superior catch than a man who does not. Also, on the off chance that he burns through cash on his current lady, he should esteem her more profoundly than a man who does not spend on his lady. Skeptical, absolutely, yet evident once you evacuate the inclination of political rightness.

However, that is simply crazy. Realities are certainties and don’t have conclusions. As a man that works rambles with ladies who are working call young ladies, the immediate connection among sex and cash isn’t forbidden to me. In the sex business, the connection among cash and sex isn’t covered up underneath dating customs, for example, who pays for diversion, dinners and beverages. Indeed, a considerable number of men see escorts precisely on the grounds that it costs significantly less cash than going out on the town and ensures a greatly improved outcome!

Some Customers Have More Money Than Sense

There is an old British expression which says about people “they have more money than sense”. It is normally intended to relate to the type of person who buys things that they do not have any real need for. Sound systems, designer clothes, sports cars, holidays, sports equipment. I am sure that you know the kind of man that I am describing. This type of behavior is as relevant to sex in exactly the same way as it does to toy and things. All high-class prostitutes will be able to easily talk about the fact that some customers have more money than sense.

Every high class prostitute understands that she is worth whatever any customer pays her for her sexual services, companionship and time. A very good escort girl can also fully appreciate that some customers do not understand the value of the money that they are spending. Some customers of escort Las Palmas agencies lavish whores with outrageous gifts with the hope that those things will persuade her into treating them better than normal clients. That might mean giving them more time or into offering sexual services that they might not normally offer – rimming, anal sex, oral sex without a condom or maybe ejaculating in her mouth. Or those clients might believe that they will get time with their favorite escort free of charge in return for the money that they have spent on gifts.

Some customers of escort agencies spend a lot of money for their sexy time with beautiful escorts, and the clever clients are aware that if they do not take care, they will be building up difficulties into the future. Prostitutes with no conscience will keep booking sessions with those clients all the way to where the cash runs out and the and credit cards no longer work. But the most professional escort women will stop meeting a client who can no longer afford to meet with them. Sex professionals might have sex with men for money, but that does not mean that are bad people. Good escorts do not want to be the cause of financial problems to wreck the life of a man that they have been paid to have sex with.

Some customers of sex workers may pay for luxury breaks and holidays, or pay for big presents and spend money as though it had no real meaning. These clients think that they can impress a sex worker with their money and they try to use their money to persuade prostitutes to treat them in a better way. The reality is that the majority of whores adore gaining a rich and generous client, but at the same time they will also have less respect for a customer who does not know the value of their money. That is especially true because whores work so hard to earn their money and can resent it when men spend money without thinking.

A Few Clients Have More Cash Than Sense

A few clients of sex laborers may pay for extravagance breaks and occasions, or pay for enormous introduces and burn through cash just as it had no genuine significance. These customers believe that they can inspire a sex specialist with their cash and they endeavor to utilize their cash to induce whores to treat them betterly. Actually the dominant part of prostitutes love picking up a rich and liberal customer, and yet they will likewise have less regard for a client who does not know the estimation of their cash. That is particularly obvious in light of the fact that prostitutes buckle down to procure their cash and can dislike it when men burn through cash without considering.

There is an old English articulation which says in regards to individuals “they have more cash than sense”. It is regularly expected to identify with the sort of individual who purchases things that they don’t have any genuine requirement for. Sound frameworks, garments, sports autos, occasions, sports gear. I am certain that you know the sort of man that I am portraying. This sort of conduct is as pertinent to sex in the very same path as it does to toy and things. All high-class whores will have the capacity to effortlessly discuss the way that a few clients have more cash than sense.

Each high class prostitute comprehends that she merits whatever any client pays her for her sexual administrations, camaraderie and time. A decent Tenerife escort girl can likewise completely welcome that a few clients don’t comprehend the estimation of the cash that they are spending. A few clients of escort offices pamper prostitutes with over the top blessings with the expectation that those things will convince her into treating them superior to typical customers. That may mean giving them additional time or into offering sexual administrations that they may not ordinarily offer – rimming, butt-centric sex, oral sex without a condom or possibly discharging in her mouth. Or on the other hand those customers may trust that they will receive time with their most loved escort gratis as an end-result of the cash that they have spent on endowments.

A few clients of sex laborers may pay for extravagance breaks and occasions, or pay for enormous introduces and burn through cash just as it had no genuine significance. These customers believe that they can inspire a sex specialist with their cash and they endeavor to utilize their cash to induce whores to treat them betterly.

That is particularly obvious in light of the fact that prostitutes buckle down to procure their cash and can dislike it when men burn through cash without considering.

A few clients of escort offices spend a considerable measure of cash for their attractive time with wonderful escorts, and the smart customers know that in the event that they don’t fare thee well, they will incorporate up troubles with what’s to come. Whores with no heart will continue booking sessions with those customers rall the best approach to where the money runs out and the and charge cards never again work. In any case, the most expert escort ladies will quit meeting a customer who can never again bear to meet with them. Sex experts may engage in sexual relations with men for cash, yet that does not imply that are terrible individuals. Great escorts would prefer not to be the reason for monetary issues to wreck the life of a man that they have been paid to engage in sexual relations with.

Does sex sell?

The simplest and shortest answer to that question is yes, sex sells. The slightly longer answer is that sex sells some things, some of the time, for some people, to some people, in some situations. Which obviously is not quite as sexy an answer a s a simple yes! But it is more truthful and accurate. Human beings are very sex focused. It is not just me, and it is not just you. Humans crave sex. Of whatever kind and with whomever floats their particular boat. I am not suggesting that people wander around constantly fantasising about what kind of sex we can have next and with whom, or that people are looking for and thinking about all the time. Actually, yes that is exactly what I am suggesting, but it is based on research. And on years working in the sex industry actually selling sex.

Incidentally, selling sex is nothing like as easy as you would think. Everyone has this idea that if you are a sex worker or run a brothel or escort agency such as Elegant Escorts Geneva then all you have to do is just put some adverts out, and you will immediately become a millionaire. And then you just have the problem of managing all your newly earned wealth – and presumably laundering your money and avoiding taxes. Nope, not close. It is nothing like that at all!

I came across some research recently – not literally, because that would be embarassing and messy and indeed expensive because I was reading the research on my laptop! Anyway the research was published in The Journal Of Sex Research – which you would think should be my favourite reading but it is actually norally irritating.

The research reported that the average male thinks about sex around nineteen times a day. I am not sure what the research methodology was, but that sounds like a hell of a lot of under reporting to me – nineteen times a day? I think more like nineteen times an hour! Or maybe they actually meant more than just a random horny thought at a photo or whatever. Perhaps they meant explicitly panning a sexual encounter or fantasising about a specific sexual act with a specific person (or thing!).
