Dear Editors,

Such exemplary sexual behaviour from male clients of prostitutes in the U.K. is difficult to believe.

Especially when studies in Greece show that almost nobody likes using condoms when visiting a prostitute, almost nobody does in effect use them, clients pay more to convince a prostitute to make an exception for them, clients would rather visit an illegal prostitute, without a licence, to avoid using condoms, etc

This irresponsible and dangerous behaviour among Greek men is so widespread that it makes it very difficult to accept the impeccable conduct described in this research.
