Author: Dr Patrick Dixon is author of "The Rising Price of Love" published by Hodder 1995, director of Global Change Ltd.

Huge media coverage followed launch of this book. Along with the social, emotional and health costs, Patrick Dixon has actually calculated the financial price of modern morals, with help from the UK government's Actuary Department. He argues that in some parts of Western society, the pendulum is swinging back so fast towards traditional values that government policy is often totally out of step with popular thinking.

Drawing on his highly respected work in AIDS care, Dr Dixon's controversial new study explores how the fresh excitement of freedom turned sour. Including a ten point action plan for society it shows the way for everyone to get involved in cutting the escalating cost of free love.

I have worked as Christian aid for sexually abused children. I must say unless the male acquire a skill and self-control over their sexual urge, this disgusting problem will not end. It is the hardest thing for the mankind, especially men to control their sexual urges.

Even priests and monks of any religions cannot control it. Priesthood and sex has always been a controversy.

I disagree totally with Patrick's comments. It has nothing to do with marriage, divorce, economy, etc, etc.

Because we cannot find the final solution for men's sex control, we cannot stop the sexual abuse.

Once in a nation called Nagaland, the north of Bangladesh had a law that no single male from the Europe and other regions were permitted to visit the country. They had to travel with the spouse with marriage certificate. Nagaland was taking precautions against child sexual abuse and trafficking which is still rampant in Asian countries. However, since three years ago, this clever law was abolished as they aimed at more economic growth as to catch up with the neighbouring nations.

Again the same issue, the mankind and greed. Never ending story. The ideal looking solution, chopping off the penis will not work either. The men still abuse children and women sexually. To be extreme, these abusive men need to be shot dead - introduction of capital punishment is the only solution.
