Beyond Babedom

We're (way) over 40. Deal with it.

Economic Boost

Spain’s economy is suffering, like the rest of the world’s. But thanks to young men,  one part is booming. Which part? Oh, the part where illegal networks of criminals ruthlessly trick foreign women into thinking there’s a job waiting for them, only to have them discover that the “job” is in a fancy club, a private apartment, an industrial complex or on a lonely country road. . . as a prostitute. Plenty of men like to think these working women are there by choice. And some may be. But of the 200,000 to 400,000 women working as prostitutes in Spain, 90% are victims of trafficking. 90%. Guys like to brag about their sexual exploits with prostitutes and when it’s suggested that these women are being forced to have sex, they often say “But I think they are having a good time.”

Good time? Really? Do they really think women who are tricked into going from Romania to Spain to support their children like having those childen’s lives threatened if they try to leave? Do they think women like servicing one man after another and being modern-day slaves? Yes, slaves. They are sexual slaves, bought and sold, like commodities.

And it isn’t limited to prostitution. It’s where they get the women to pose for all that online porn. Yes, guys. When you’re pleasuring yourself while looking at those Asian and Russian nymphs, think about how they got there. Oh, and think about the fact that many of them are merely girls. Maybe even the age of your own daughter. Still turn you on?

Don’t go getting all self-satisfied by thinking that this problem is a European or Asian one, because the same thing is happening in the U.S. Every year about 50,000 women and children are brought into this country for the same reason – sexual slavery.

People like to say that prostitution and porn hurt no one and, believe me, I have always loved porn. But they aren’t just props. They are people. They are people who, in most cases, had no idea what they were getting into. And now they can’t get out. These barbaric traffickers (and some are women) use every trick in the book, including threats to rape or kill the children these women were trying to support by taking these “jobs.”

Yes, Spain’s tourism economy is booming on the backs of these women and girls while they are on their backs. Think about that.
