S Korea To Pay Men Who Promise Not To Buy Sex

SEOUL, South Korea -- South Korea has launched a campaign offering cash to men if they promise not to buy sex from prostitutes after year-end office parties, government officials said Tuesday.

The move is aimed at changing the party culture in this male-dominated society by winning commitments from male employees to abstain from hiring prostitutes after the parties, said an official at the Gender Equality and Family Ministry. A total of $5,000 will be paid to companies based on the largest number of volunteers who sign a pledge, the official said. AP
