A new Sexual Offences Bill was passed in the Republic of Ireland under the radar in spring 2017. First published in 2015, a seemingly unlikely alliance between liberals and religious conservatives under the 'Turn Off the Red Light' banner pushed for the criminalisation of the purchase of sexual services, also known as the 'Swedish Model', despite being practically unanimously opposed by actual sex workers.
