LONDON (Reuters) – A British government minister asked California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday to shut down a U.S. website that allows men to rate prostitutes, including many working in London.

Harriet Harman, minister for women and equality, told the ruling Labor Party‘s annual conference that “Punternet” fuels the demand for prostitution — a vice she said degrades women and puts them at risk.

She said the web site was a “very sinister development” in the trade and exploitation of women and allows guests to compare and rate services in the same way as they would a restaurant, a hotel or a holiday.

Pimps put women on sale for sex on the site then clients offered their comments on line, she said..

There are a couple of points I want to raise here…

1. This story is proof that USA still owns the world. As long as we have control over the internet, we are golden. This bitch must have been pissed off to high heaven when she found out that speaking to the Kindergarten Cop was her only shot at shutting down the website. Fuck yea for Silicon Valley!

2. Are you telling me there is a Yelp equivalent for tute services out there? That’s awesome, it’s about time. There seems to be an online rating system for every other service, why not prostitution? If I’m gonna get a prostitute, it would be nice to know about any surprises…like if she only has one boob or if she has a penis. This sounds like a reasonable website to me. This  just needs to get laid.
