Letter: 1900 telephone sex lines


by Dr. Arnold Jago

News Weekly, December 16, 2000

Sir,

In 1999 the law was changed so that people wishing to access 1900 telephone sex lines must "opt in" by signing a written agreement.

This has resulted in the industry going virtually out of existence.

For example, the Sunshine Coast Daily (Queensland) reveals that "the local industry fell from 1.5 million calls to just ten subscribers" under the new laws.

Gone also will be those offensive late night ads on TV. Congratulations to the federal government for, on this occasion, doing something constructive for Australian families.

Dr. Arnold Jago
Mildura, Vic
