The government in the Netherlands has clarified that it is legal for driving instructors to offer lessons in return for sex, as long as the students are over the age of 18.

However, it is illegal to offer sex in return for lessons.

Transport minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen and Justice minister Ard van der Steur addressed the issue in response to a question tabled in parliament by Gert-Jan Segers of the socially conservative Christian Union party, noting that, although 'undesirable', offering driving lessons with sex as payment is not illegal.

In a letter to parliament the ministers said: "It's not about offering sexual activities for remuneration, but offering a driving lesson. It is important that the initiative lies with the driving instructor, and focuses on offering a driving lesson, with the payment provided in sexual acts. When a sexual act offered in lieu of financial payment, that is prostitution."

It's been noted that web searches for driving lessons in exchange for sex, or 'a ride for a ride' as the practice has been dubbed, have recently increased in popularity.

Gert-Jan Segers protested that the situation should be illegal as the (apparently entirely theoetical) learner drivers would not have an escort license, and would not be declaring the sexual services for tax purposes.

I don't get it how this one is prostitution and the drivers accepting sex as payment is not.

I don't mind the law because I don't care how they "pay" for it as long as there are only adults involved but what the hell, accepting one way and condemning it the other way around is utterly bullshit.
