Loose Women was cut due to technical difficulties yesterday for few minutes – as Katie Price revealed she considered hiring a prostitute for disabled son Harvey when he reaches 18.
During an interview with Kathy Lette, who considered getting a prostitute for her autistic son Julius,
Katie revealed her husband Kieran Hayler has previously joked about doing the same thing.
She said: “My son Harvey has autism, and he’s just hit puberty, and it’s obviously natural to experiment with yourself during puberty.
“Kieran joked and said maybe we should get him a prostitute when he’s 18, and I said, ‘But that’s my little Harvey and I don’t want to do that!’
“But do you wait and let him experience it for himself?”
Another guest was then asked whether he’d have liked to get a prostitute.
He said: “It’s something I’ve thought about. I think I would like some parts of it!”
Kathy’s argument for considering a prostitute for her son is that he doesn’t know is how to read social situations, claiming he “often finds himself exiled into Social Siberia”.
She said: “Autistic people have sexual needs too, and if the child expresses a desire, and a curiosity, then you might look into having those needs met.”
And viewers of Loose Women were in full support of Kathy’s argument.
One said: “I took my autistic son to Amsterdam for his 18th, he chose not to purchase any services but I would have fully supported him.”
Another added: “Totally agree, would do the same if that’s what they wanted.”
A third agreed: “I agree with hiring a prostitute for disabled people, I will be doing the same for my nephew at 18. Why should they miss out.”
