Families reject 'academy of prostitution' in Spain

.- The World Congress of Families condemned a “heartless” group which they believe is taking advantage of Spain's economic crisis in creating an “academy of prostitution” in Valencia.

The so-called “Academy of Pleasure,” founded by Brandon Morales, teaches its students how to be prostitutes and promises a job to those who graduate. The course costs $129 and last ten days.

Local officials in Valencia have called for the operation to be shut down and for its promotional ads to be discarded.

In a statement sent to CNA on May 10, the World Congress of Families called prostitution “an activity that denigrates and enslaves the human person and has negative consequences for society, from the social exclusion in which it takes place, to the health and psychological problems that it entails.”

“Undoubtedly prostitution, and in general everything related to sexual experiences that do not correspond to human nature, are a modern form of slavery that is not in accord with human nature and poses a threat to the traditional family,” the statement said.

The organizers of the World Congress of Families, which will take place May 25-27 in Madrid, said the event this year would include “politically incorrect round-table discussions and seminars on sex.”

Among the topics to be discussed include “The social cost of pornography,” “Promiscuity and infidelity: collateral damage,” “Solutions to homosexual behavior,” “Purity and abstinence,” and “Love, intimacy and sexuality in marriage.”

The list of invited speakers features Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Alcala de Henares, psychotherapist Richard Cohen, Venezuelan model Vivian Sleiman, author of the bestseller “Virgin at 30,” and Christine de Vollmer, president of the Latin American Alliance for the Family.
