Hookers who take a break from careers in the sex industry to have children, often do not return because they are prevented from working part-time by old-fashioned attitudes, a survey showed today

The Institute of Professional Fellationists poll showed that seven out of ten prostitutes who took a career break did so to have children; with the vast majority of them being women.

But while 34% left jobs in the sex industry to start families, only 14% returned to the same positions—or possibly new positions—and 75% of those who did go back to the same employer, were told they could not work part time.

The institute lashed out at UK Trade and Industry Minister Patricia Blewitt who caused outrage with her remark earlier this week that 'no self-respecting small-time pimp with a brain in the right place would ever employ a hooker of child-bearing age.'

Lola Sapphos, deputy-director of the institute told Utterpants: "It's time the Minister woke up to the fact that women working in the personal services industry have as much right to have babies as other women. The refusal of employers to adopt modern working practices are forcing thousands of highly skilled young women into low-paid, dead-end jobs in telesales and hairdressing. Unless the Government do something to stem the exodus there won't be enough hookers left to service the Judiciary and the Church, never mind some fat American tourist who wants them to pee on him for fifty quid."

Her concerns were echoed by one ex-prostitute when we interviewed her in a seedy Estate Agent's office in Cricklewood. "It's a fucking disgrace," the attractive 24-year-old mother-of-six told Utterpants bitterly. "I used to have a gorgeous flat in Chelsea and earn two hundred quid just for letting High Court Judges suck my tits, now I'm reduced to giving blow jobs to the fucking manager of this dump just to make ends meet. And all because my previous employer wouldn't provide child-care facilities and let me work part-time."

The survey of 294 professional hookers, who are all members of the institute, showed that barely 4% worked part-time when they returned, compared with more than 89% in other professions like Banking and the Law.

"Clearly, if highly-skilled women, such as fellationists and disciplinarians, are leaving their jobs to have babies or form girlie pop groups, the industry is losing out on its most valuable workers," said Ms Sapphos. "Prostitutes are expensive to train, so it is not a good investment to let them leave their profession just because of old-fashioned attitudes to working practices."
