The Concept of “Whore Island” Just Came A Lot Closer To Becoming A Reality Thanks to Hellenistic Style Fiscal Mismanagement

Meanwhile In Soviet Greece “Austerity” says F*ck You Too!

Greece’s crippling debt crisis has meant that more women in the European country are selling sex with prices tumbling as low as the cost of a sandwich.

A new report reveals that more Greek women than Eastern European women are working as prostitutes in Greece following the difficult years of austerity.

‘Some women just do it for a cheese pie, or a sandwich they need to eat because they are hungry,’ claims the report’s author, sociology professor Gregory Lazos at the Panteion University, Athens.

Professor Lazos said that his study, which records the cases of 18,500 sex workers in Greece, ‘reflects a society in denial about the changes taking place.’

The going rate for sex has fallen from €50 (£35) at the beginning of the crisis, to as low as just €2 for a single session, Professor Lazos told The Times

The academic carried out the three year piece of academic research, having previously written about trafficking and sexual values in Greece.

‘These cases — about 400 — may be nominal compared with the thousands of other sex workers operating nationwide, but they never existed as a trend until the financial crisis,’ he said.

Prostitution is legal in Greece and with the fall in wages and rising unemployment, the industry has been growing rapidly.

‘Factor in the growing number of girls who drift in and out of the trade, depending on their needs, and the total number of female prostitutes is startling,’ Mr Lazos said.

The Greek academic’s findings suggest that Greek women now dominate 80 per cent of the sex trade industry, which has become a €600 million business. greek-girl[1]

In 2003, over 150 prostitutes in Greece staged a vigil outside a brothel in protest to proposed changes to prostitution laws ahead of the 2004 Olympic Games.

The Greek government had tried to shut down a number of brothels after they were found to be located close to schools and churches.

Only ten of the estimated 525 brothels in Greece are thought to be operating with a legal license.

FYI: There is also an equal chance that this entire story was cooked up by the Greek Tourism board just to drum up business.

    During the 1980 recession American whores who were plying their trade on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls Canada had the price for alley hummers down to 13 bucks Canadian(Pre GST).

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      That’s $37.50 today after adjustments for inflation since 1980.
      You mentioned “Pre-GST” so I’m wondering what GST would add to that.
      Do prostitutes in Canada even collect GST?

        Sure, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Trichomoniasis.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Yeah, but you also got all that totally sweet FREE Canadian health insurance!
          So that kinda smoothes off the rough edges of $37 BJ.

      If the word gets out and foreign men start flocking there, some of them will start investing in local businesses if only as an excuse to keep returning and effectively revive the economy. It worked in Thailand.

        Hey, if they would do it for the price of a sandwich then I bet Jared Fogle is kicking himself for not opening a subway there.

          Or he could have gone to Southern Baja where the age of consent is twelve.
          $150 plane ticket and totally legal.

          I wonder what happens if you try to bring you 12-year-old bride back home? I’m sure someone has to have tried that.

          • Alain

            Twelve is pretty old by Muslim standards.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            It is, but Mexico’s the best we’ve got.
            I was wrong earlier, you can have sex with a twelve year old there, but cannot marry until she’s 14.
            So they got that!
