The National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will pay $2.6 million in U.S. tax dollars to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly on the job.

Dr. Xiaoming Li, the researcher conducting the program, is director of the Prevention Research Center at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit.

The grant, made last November, refers to prostitutes as "female sex workers"--or FSW--and their handlers as "gatekeepers."

"Previous studies in Asia and Africa and our own data from FSWs [female sex workers] in China suggest that the social norms and institutional policy within commercial sex venues as well as agents overseeing the FSWs (i.e., the 'gatekeepers', defined as persons who manage the establishments and/or sex workers) are potentially of great importance in influencing alcohol use and sexual behavior among establishment-based FSWs," says the NIH grant abstract submitted by Dr. Li.

We're not even training our own whores with this money? That's just wrong.

Well, I read the article and was pleased to see that the Chinese prostitutes being trained to avoid alcohol were actually in China and not here. :D

I know, I know. I was actually working (WORK!!!) today and just got off a plane from Lexington to Detroit. I'm in a bar right now in the Detroit airport and thought I'd better attend to it during the layover, else my reputation might suffer. :D

I say we tax prostitution. Then we can use the revenue to pay for studies about prostitution.
