The Netherlands Government's Model for Combatting Inceldom was a decision by the Dutch government's top advisory agency, the Raad van State, which in 1992 decided that disabled people are entitled to sex and sexual relations, at the government's expense if necessary. It was essentially the first known modern government ruling to make sex a human right. The entitlement to sex was made part of the Dutch welfare program, giving government money to reimburse some disabled users of prostitutes.[1]

History of sex as human right in the Netherlands

In a preliminary decision in 1992, the Raad van State ruled that the municipality of Noordoostpolder must pay a monthly stipend of 65 guilders ($38) to a handicapped man who was reportedly suffered mental anguish from the absence of sexual contact.

The money was to be used to defray the cost of a once-a-month visit to a "sexual aid worker" who charged 150 guilders for a 90-minute session.

"A psychologist said in a report that the man's mental health would greatly improve if he had sex once a month."[2]

The wider societal implication of sex-as-human-right was that if you have a physical/mental disability that prevents you from living your life like a normal person, you would be eligible for a special kind of welfare (PGB). You could go to a licensed sex worker that was also listed as a "care sex worker", declare it to your insurance company, and then the state would refund the money you'd spend.

It has been taken out quite recently in 2017 (state probably deemed it unnecessary).

It was in the news some time ago that a Dutch pornstar is trying to get this shit re-instated because she thinks sex is a vital part of the human experience.[3]

Activism to re-instate

Pornstar Ivey Passion has campaigned in the Netherlands to reinstate the sex-as-human-right policy as a matter of public health.
