S Korean men paid to stay away from prostitutes

South Korea’s ministry of equality is going to pay companies whose male employees promise not to visit a prostitute to see in the new year.

The BBC reports that the scheme is part of an attempt to crack down on “a culture in which men get drunk at parties and go on to buy sex”.

Which is all well and good, but Jesus, how bad does it have to be when you must pay men to stop buying women.
