A 'man of 21 with learning disabilities has been granted taxpayers' money to fly to Amsterdam and have sex with a prostitute.

His social worker says sex is a 'human right' for the unnamed individual - described as a frustrated virgin.

His trip to a brothel in the Dutch capital's red light district next month is being funded through a £520million scheme introduced by the last government to empower those with disabilities.

They are given a personal budget and can choose what services this is spent on.

The man's social worker, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said his client was an 'angry, frustrated and anxious young man' who had a need for sex.

'He's planning to do more than just have his end away - he's having a holiday,' he said.

'He has been to two sexual health and sexual awareness courses and basically wants to try it.

'The girls in Amsterdam are far more protected than those on UK streets. Let him have some fun - I'd want to.

'Wouldn't you prefer that we can control this, guide him, educate him, support him to understand the process and ultimately end up satisfying his needs in a secure, licensed place where his happiness and growth as a person is the most important thing?

'Refusing to offer him this service would be a violation of his human rights.'

Paying for sex is not illegal but soliciting sexual services, kerb crawling and paying for sex with women who have been coerced into prostitution is.

Critics yesterday said the use of taxpayers' money to fund sex trips abroad as 'deeply worrying'.

In Greater Manchester and Norfolk, social care clients have used their payments for internet dating subscriptions.

Why don't the d00d just buy a blow-up-doll or have a Tom-Tank like the rest of do when we feel in the mood.

What a waste of money and I bet it's an E.U. grant funded scheme.

That cuts right to the core of the perception issue. I'd much rather see money from taxpayers improve the quality of life for people here in the UK than to destroy the quality of life for people in Iraq and Afghanistan. The man was given a personal budget to spend as he pleased and that was what he chose to do with it - it's not like the council has a 'prostitute fund'. It's a sensationalist story but that is to be expected from the Daily Mail, which obsesses over celebrities and deliberately misrepresents stories. Just look at the top five stories linked to on the right at the moment:

1) Tulisa wearing PVC
2) Twilight star's description of herself
3) The pregnant wife of a footballer
4) A photo that makes it look like Miley Cyrus has no feet
5) Kate and Wills' evening in Mayfair

It's absolute trash. It's a gossip rag that pretends it's a newspaper.

And yes, it's a very old article that does not warrant reposting. Further, I'm sure it was already posted here on Neowin.
