    I was drugged at a club and I’m convinced someone was trying to sell me into a sex ring but luckily my friend was on me the entire time and got me medical attention asap. I had one drink at this time straight from the bartender. I was told that 25% of the time bartenders are paid off to
    Do this. Please be careful. Look after another and the children too

    What I find funny and disgusting at the same time, is how so many of the people who make/keep these types of things illegal, indulge in it themselves. How many politicians have been busted for hiring prostitutes or buying drugs in the past 10 years? Like always, they have that “rules for thee, not for me” mentality.

    Amazing reporter she knows her job well. You can stop this type of work if you invest wisely. Most times, it amazes me greatly how I moved from an average lifestyle to earning over $83k per month. Utter shock is the word. I have understood a lot in the past few years to doubt that opportunities are bound in the financial markets

      @Hamza Younis Really? That’s funny, because SHE’S the one who brought up the fact that if it was legal, the sex workers would STILL be going into the customers “space” alone since not all of them would be working at a brothel. Yeah, she obviously has her own opinions and biases, like we ALL do, but she at least tried to see it from both sides. Something most journalists can’t seem to do

  • Lizzy

    Loved the part when they explained that the reason there is more violence than there needs to be is BECAUSE it’s illegal. The criminals know the victims won’t report their criminal behavior, so they know they can get away with it.

    As far as the legalities are concerned, Dennis is spot on. The exact same is true about drugs. Make it legal, provide safety and oversight while generating huge tax revenue. Whether it's prostitution or drugs, legalization is clearly the best path forward. Keeping them outlawed only benefits criminals, organized crime syndicates and of course, the Mexican cartels. Apparently our government wants these people to remain filthy rich while keeping courts and prisons packed with violence through the roof

    • Hunter Young
      Hunter Young 4 months ago

      @Maybe David I don't think it would make a difference because its been illegal forever in the 1980s they started giving pimps life sentences, yet that really hasn't stopped anything. IMO either you make it more business like or its stays pretty much the same.

    • Maybe David
      Maybe David 6 months ago

      HIs description of the sex trade is correct...the vast majority is exploitation and destruction of innocent lives. His solution however, is very narrow-minded and actually ignores the reality he describes...it does not 'solves' it. The solution is already in place in several parts of the world: The pimps and those who purchase sex must be criminalised. Not the prostitutes themselves. ie. It should be illegal to purchase sex. This helps solve the exploitation problems. Unfortunately, too many politicians around the world are too caught up in this industry themselves to pass such rational legislation.

    I'm not exactly sure how I feel about prostitution. I would never want my daughter to do it. BUT selling sex is going to happen. I do think there should be protection for these women. So if legalization is the way, then so be it. I was really struck when the woman said that people treat them as subhuman because they know the worker cannot report assault/victimization to police for fear of self-incrimination. That definitely gave me a different perspective on the industry.

    The first girl talking about retirement - my first thought was how smart that is. It got me to thinking... I feel like if it was to (ever) be legalized all around the US, there could be courses offered to help teach these ladies (and the men) how to handle their finances. Paying taxes, learning about savings, how to be responsible with their money as a way to make it easier for them to exit this line of work when they decide they're done. I'm sure so many probably stay when they actually want out because they're not sure what to do financially.

  • Mera Aleta
    Mera Aleta Year ago +7

    Decriminalization hasn't worked well in many places in which it's been tried (ex/Sweden, Canada), as it tends to view sex workers as victims, criminalizing the Johns in place of the sex worker. This eliminates the safety argument, as Johns are very afraid of the basic safety tactics used by workers, such as recording identifying information such as their license plate number, phone number, credit card number, etc, or taking the time to 'vet them' (particularly important for survival sex workers who are often in touch with one another and sharing information about violent Johns). Legalization is imperfect, but a much better option. It's true the brothel owner was super creepy, but this is a man who can at least be charged for coercion or impropriety, as he is known.

    As with the drug trade, we know unequivocally that the practice will continue legal or not. If legal, in both cases (as with alcohol) the trade can be regulated to better protect our fellow citizens who work in the trade and those who are their customers. In the vast majority of sexual experiences between non married (and in a lot of those within marriages) consenting adults I believe there is a trade of sex for some type of compensation (dinner, alcohol, companionship, jewelry, a dress, new shoes, etc.). That as a society we make the experience illegal only if the participants don’t pretend there is no exchange of favors seems to me blatantly hypocritical, illogical and supported by very little in the way of reason.

      The problem is that it will inadvertently make women who are under financial pressure choose the easy way out by trying the prostitution "addiction" for couple of times till their problem is fixed. Little do they now, that prostitution or porn is like an easy-money addiction that make you lose your self-confidence to do any other respectful job . It's easy to get in, but once you're hooked, it's not as easy to get out.

    When I was younger I worked at one of these in Toronto, I made 150$ for every 30 minutes. I had about 8 to 12 customers a night each for 30 mins, sometimes more. It was legal, no sex, the men were very respectful and followed the rules. Most of them were single and couldn't get women, some just wanted the company of a woman to talk to, and a lot were unhappy in their marriages (dead bedroom), then I got some of the older senior men who lost their wives or divorced or just don't have time for dating, and then the young men. It's good money.. but I had to be drunk every night to do it. It was a dark time in my life. I'd never go back there, no matter how much money. But everyone is different.. some people can handle it. Definitely not for everyone, but those who can handle that life it's good money. Better than being on the street, this is safe.

    I just spent 7 months living with a sex worker in Vegas. These guys she had to see were awful. One time she was all bruised up and she was scared of someone coming to the apartment. I urged her to get out of this life, it’s no good. But no use. People in her circle fuck with benzodiazepines and all sorts of stuff. She was a complete wreck. She could do so well with one good man but I guess she’s hooked to the lifestyle. It’s so sad. That friendship did not end well. She accused me of stealing her keys and wallet when I proved I didn’t but I guess she assumes everyone is as messed up as she is.

    Dennis Hoff sitting there, pretending he’s a business man, when he’s only a pimp. The women are still made to feel not good enough? “I didn’t get picked but that’s okay” She didn’t have time to hide the look on her face. Sad. Hope she realizes they psychologically manipulate her to feel bad. Praying for them all.
    If it’s legal, why aren’t the pimps from née York and every where moving here? This has a STRONG mob cringe to it. She’s terrified to give any answer but a positive one. She’s probably been used since she was a child. Sad world we live in.

    No one seems to understand why the owner gets half the money. But he has to use it to keep that property going. One of the women who works there did a tour of the area. There's a pool, multiple poolside suites, a bar, performance area, barns for the horses she owns, security spots, rooms for each lady, a kitchen where they're served breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a laundry area, a doctor's office on-site, and SO much more. It's a very nice place for the women to be, but money has to go towards it. The money ultimately goes to them, because all those areas and resources allow them to be in a safe environment and keep working.

    have this organized like most of japan - it becomes a viable option instead of being exploitation. And especially since american men don't respect their objects (let alone other humans, especially when they are not also men), it is paramount for it to be regulated and for them to have physical protection (also why foreigners are more or less outright banned from these establishments in Japan). If only we had humanity in and drew a line for others instead of waiting them to be able to assert their own, wouldn't it be fucking nice if we were considerate, just, empathetic?

    Good on you sister. These were heart wrenching stories. Especially when I saw you hug that lady when she said even we are humans that was so satisfying. That’s why Islam brought you the solution it’s so clear that marry 1-4 women so that you can protect them and give them what they deserve a reputation of being a wife they never be called as sex workers and take their and their children responsibility in your life. It’s so simple I wonder why people don’t read n understand (human manual)Quran it has clear message. It has no contradictions no hate in it. Don’t draw lines just after watching Islamophobe on media each individual do your part. ‘Research’.
