Ca niste gaini in cusca: Romance prostituate in Germania

Deși este legală în Germania, prostituția este dominată tot de crima organizată. Victime – aceleași, dar acum sub acoperirea legii: femeile. Un reportaj ziare.com

Violenta, droguri, atacuri de panica: unele femei isi vand corpul in Germania pentru numai 30 de euro. Dar profitul il incaseaza altii. O prostituata, care s-a retras din business, ne povesteste.

Intr-o noapte obisnuita, se culca cu zece sau doisprezece, uneori chiar si cu 14 barbati. Rezista pana la 3 dimineata, nu mai mult, povesteste femeia, pe care clientii o numeau Iulia.

Alte femei isi luau puterea din alcool sau din droguri, deseori cocaina, marijuana, pentru a rezista intreaga noapte si a face fata exigentelor. Deutsche Welle nu poate verifica povestea Iuliei, dar ea coincide cu declaratiile asistentilor sociali si ale Politiei, care cunosc situatia prostitutiei din Germania.

In plus, Iulia ne-a prezentat fotografii din perioada in care era prostituata. Nu vrea sa le faca publice si nici sa isi dezvaluie adevaratul nume.

Romanca de 30 de ani si-a vandut corpul timp de un deceniu, ba pe centura, ba in locuinte private, ba in bordeluri si baruri din Elvetia, Franta, Grecia si in final in Germania. Pana pe data de 10 martie, pe care si-o aminteste exact: “Clientul mi-a oferit 100 euro pe ora, ceea ce era o suma obisnuita, dupa care m-am oprit”.

S-a retras din acest business, a incetat sa se prostitueze si sa-si faca griji interminabile ca nu va gasi destui clienti pentru a plati chiria la bordel. Trebuia sa plateasca 130 euro pe noapte pentru camera in care si locuia. Suma de 130 euro trebuia platita, indiferent de cum i-ar fi mers ziua, adica 4.000 euro pe luna. Continue reading

Legalizarea bordelurilor, paravan pentru traficul de persoane, proxenetism și prostituție forțată. Infernul trăit de românce în Germania: „Este mai periculos decât să mergi la război”. Concluzia dramatică a unui documentar transmis de ZDF

Documentarul „Bordell Deutschland” (Bordelul Germania), transmis de ZDF arată că viața de zi cu zi a prostituatelor din Germania este controlată de criminalitatea organizată.
Femeile care activează în domeniu – multe dintre ele românce – au parte de experiențe șocante. De altfel, documentarul realizat de Christian P. Stracke, prezintă și poveștile unor românce care au reușit să părăsească bordelurile și încearcă să își facă o nouă viață.

Denisa, de exemplu, a reușit să se elibereze și acum participă la programe de educație contra prostituției în zonele sărace ale României.

Potrivit Biroului Federal de Statistică, aproximativ 1,2 milioane de bărbați folosesc servicii sexuale zilnice în Germania, iar numărul prostituatelor variază, de la perioadă la perioadă, între 400.000 și 1 milion, potrivit ziarulromanesc.de.

Legalizarea prostitutiei, realizată în 2002 este subiectul documentarului care va fi transmis pe 18 noiembrie, anunță stimme.de. Realizatorul documentarului susține însă că această legalizare este, de fapt, un paravan pentru traficul de persoane, proxenetism și prostituție forțată. Continue reading

Most ‘sex workers’ are modern-day slaves

Prostitution is rarely, if ever, a choice

, The Spectator

In the midst of all the outrage about modern-day slavery, usually vulnerable men forced into manual labour, there is actually a far worse form of abuse going on in the UK. It happens in every city, town and even village. It’s endemic to every culture and region of the world, and yet these days we justify it in the name of ‘liberation’. We’ve become accustomed to thinking of prostitution as a legitimate way of earning a living, even ‘empowering’ for women. We call it ‘sex work’ and look away. We should not.

For the last three years I’ve been investigating prostitution worldwide to test the conventional wisdom of it being a career choice, as valid as any other. I conducted 250 interviews in 40 countries, interviewed 50 survivors of the sex trade, and almost all of them told me the same story: don’t believe the ‘happy hooker’ myth you see on TV. In almost every case it’s actually slavery. The women who work as prostitutes are in hock and in trouble. They’re in need of rescue just as much as any of the more fashionable victims of modern slavery.

One of the most disturbing discoveries I made was that the loudest voices calling for legalisation and normalisation of prostitution are the people who profit from it: pimps, punters and brothel owners. They have succeeded in speaking for the women under their control. The people who know the real story about the sex trade have been gagged by a powerful lobby of deluded ‘liberal’ ideo-logues and sex-trade profiteers.

As much as a third of Western prostitution workers are Romanian

Loverboy movie / Stradafilm.ro

On April 22nd, 2015, Bucharest hosted, at the Parliament building, the international conference “Politicians and Civil Society against human trafficking”. The event participants on behalf of Western European civil society organizations warned that legalizing prostitution has made impossible to combat human trafficking. They also said that no more than 10% of sex workers are doing this on their own free will, stressing that this idea is an ideological assumption of the sex liberation movement and it is simply not true. They also announced statistics according to which as much as a third of sex workers in big Western cities are Romanian. Here is a presentation made by an organization who wished to remain anonymous in order not to compromise its reaching-out mission.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to share some thoughts, ideas and suggestions.  Our organization is an initiative for people in prostitution, in a capital in Western Europe.

I want to start with a quote. It is taken from the book Paid for by Rachel Moran, a former prostitution and now journalist:

Women in prostitution do not wake up one morning and choose prostitution. It is chosen for them by poverty, social disadvantages, past sexual abuse and pimps, loverboys who take advantage of their vulnerabilities and the men who buy them for sex of prostitution.

Franța: Solicitarea de „servicii sexuale” va fi sancționată cu amenzi usturătoare. De ce s-au întors feministele contra prostituției?

luxembourgprostitutionÎn luna aprilie, legislativul francez a adoptat o nouă lege care privește lupta contra prostituției și traficului de persoane, prin care se interzice solicitarea/cumpărarea de servicii sexuale, nu însă și oferirea/vânzarea lor. Clienții prostituatelor vor fi amendați sever și obligați la urmarea unor cursuri despre răul pe care îl provoacă traficul de sex.

Legea, votată cu 64-12 în Adunarea Națională, camera inferioară a Parlamentului francez, este una dintre cele mai dure din Europa și a fost promisă încă din campania electorală din 2012 de actualul președinte F. Hollande și de Partidul Socialist.

Prostituția este tolerată în Franța, dar bordelurile și proxenetismul sunt ilegale, iar oferirea de servicii sexuale ale unor minore este circumstanță agravantă la infracțiuni.

Spre deosebire de vechea lege din 2003, care interzicea oferirea pasivă de servicii sexuale pe stradă, noua lege mută atenția pe „clienții” prostituatelor, căutând astfel să atragă atenția asupra faptului că în marea majoritate a cazurilor, prostituatele sunt victime.

” Is Prostitution Just Another Job? “

Chelsea Lane was a freshman at Reed, the esteemed liberal-arts college in Portland, Oregon, when she first became ­interested in sex work. Someone in her humanities class had a Tumblr about being a prostitute, prompting a lively debate among fellow students over whether they could ever sell their bodies. “I started reading sex workers’ blogs,” Lane explains. The women behind the blogs sounded confident, financially secure. “And within Reed, it was like, ‘That’s cool. That’s edgy.’ ”

Lane describes herself as “fat and hairy” and is so pale she almost glows. She grew up poor but “had a zero-trauma childhood” in a conservative Northern California town. “My parents were the most supportive,” she says. “They’ve been married for 35 years and still love each other. They did tell me I’m beautiful and awesome.’ ” But she still felt insecure about her body and about sex. “They’re your parents, so they don’t say, ‘You’re a beautiful sexual creature.’ Because that’s creepy and weird. There’s a disconnect between thinking I can do anything in life versus thinking I’m beautiful physically.” Lane, who had lost her virginity to another virgin at Reed in what she describes as “really disappointing and bad” sex, started contacting the sex-work bloggers, asking if curvy girls could be strippers. “I didn’t feel attractive or wanted, but these ladies told me that everybody has beauty and that there is someone out there who will appreciate it — who’ll even pay for it.”

The more she learned, the more appealing sex work became. She had visions of going to grad school and liked the idea of having wealthy men fund her education. Later in her freshman year, she posted a personal ad on a sugar-daddy website. She met her first client at a hotel. “The sex was really bad,” she says, “but he was a decent guy. He was in his mid-40s. He told me that I was the second person he’d ever slept with, other than his wife. He put the money in my purse. As soon as I got in my car, I counted and was like, ‘Holy shit, that’s $300!’ At this point, I’m 18 and working at Sears. I was excited.”

” To Reduce Human Trafficking, Fight Corruption and Improve Economic Freedom “a

January was National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness month, a time set aside to reflect on the way forward in global efforts to combat trafficking in persons, and this month the 22nd annual edition of The Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom was published. It is an opportune moment to highlight one of the best ways to eliminate the pernicious scourge of trafficking: adopting policies that promote economic freedom.

The Correlation Between Economic Freedom and Human Trafficking

The U.S. Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report measures countries’ compliance with minimum standards for combatting TIP and ranks countries from best to worst in four categories: Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 2 Watch List, and Tier 3.

Of the 18 countries on Tier 3 in the 2015 TIP report, all but two were considered “Repressed” or “Mostly Unfree”—the lowest categories in the 2016 Index of Economic Freedom.[1] The two exceptions, Thailand and Kuwait, are considered only “Moderately Free.” Economically repressed countries on Tier 3 include North Korea, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, and Iran, to name a few.

In contrast, countries designated Tier 1 in the TIP report predominantly rank as “Free” or “Mostly Free” in the Index. The implication is clear: Countries that promote economic freedom are more likely to be effective in combatting trafficking in persons.

A close examination of human trafficking and the principles of economic freedom—especially strong rule of law—reveals the robust connections between these two desirable societal outcomes.

Stronger Rule of Law Reduces Human Trafficking

” Kids Are Renewable Resources “

RENO, Nev.—The number of women selling sex along Fourth Street’s string of dilapidated motels here used to be so high that fights broke out among pimps over who controlled each block.

As the city tries to fix its image as a poor-man’s Vegas and technology makes it easier to buy and sell sex online, much of the local sex market has gone underground. The shift hasn’t diminished prostitution, but it has made it harder for law enforcement and victim advocates to address. “Online social media has formed a beautiful platform for trafficking,” says Kelly Ranasinghe, a senior program attorney with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, and one of the leaders of its child sex-trafficking arm. “It’s getting much more clever and harder to prosecute.”

Melissa Holland, the founder and director of Awaken, a Reno group working to end sex trafficking, says the organization is encountering more girls looking to get out of the life. Whether that’s the result of an increase in trafficking or awareness is unclear, but Awaken helped 65 girls in 2014 get therapy, secure housing, find work, and enroll in school. In 2015, that number was 85. Nationally, the advocacy group Polaris says it saw a 24 percent increase in trafficking victims reaching out between 2014 and 2015. “We’ve not seen a decrease,” Holland says during an interview in a cozy sitting room above her office dotted with bright pillows, designed as a welcoming space for women seeking help.
