The deployment of troops overseas is not only difficult for the soldiers themselves but it is also difficult for the families as well. And now issues are only further compounded after a new recommendation from an official Australian Defence Force website last month. Australian military wives are furious over the proposal which would send sex workers to the front lines to ‘service troops.’
It is important to note that sex work is legal in Australia but it varies from country to country.
In an essay called ‘Sex and War – A Conversation The Army Has To Have’ it recommended that the army ‘contract Australian male and female sex workers to service troops in forward operating bases and air bases.’
The article which was authored by Australian army Capt. Sally Williamson said ‘improved intimacy and sexual interaction can help combat veterans with PTSD recovery.’
Williamson went on to say that sex on deployment can help with issues such as the stress of ‘loneliness or prolonged absence from family, friends, partners, and spouses.’ Williamson went on to say that sex on deployment also helps soldiers cope with living and working in a war zone.
And rightfully so, many military wives were upset over this recommendation.
The post was deleted from the army’s Land Power site just 10 days after it was posted.
