One City’s Simple Answer to Horny Men Looking for Prostitutes Is Downright Clever

18K

Police in St. Louis have been getting complaints from people who say men looking for prostitutes have been soliciting them.

Starting this week in two St. Louis neighborhoods, the city is tackling that problem head-on, publicly humiliating men on the prowl by mailing them bright yellow postcards that read:

“The City of St. Louis, its residents, and your neighbors would like to remind you that lewd, lascivious and/or suggestive behavior (including but not limited to prostitution, solicitation and prostitution loitering) are a violation of city ordinance and state law.”

Here’s a photo of one of the postcards:

By humiliating (and hopefully deterring) potential customers, police predict that occurrences of prostitution will decrease as well. Thoughts?
