The sex trade: A customer's perspective: If you caught Radio Noon on Friday, you might have heard an e-mail from a man in St. John's who believes prostitution should be decriminalized. His reasons are personal. Like most people, he's interested in being part of a romantic couple. But, he has a disability; and as he puts it, people don't see him as an ideal partner. That's where sex workers come in. He sees them as an alternative... a way to get some intimacy in his life instead of always being seen as an asexual person. He speaks with host Ramona Dearing.

He's the Deputy AngajukKah of Nain. He speaks with host Ramona Dearing.
