Front promotes sex tourism
Posted by charliegrrl on October 23, 2006
FRONT have written an article promoting sex tourism.
They interview two men, who went to Germany for the World Cup and whilst there, visited the country’s biggest brothel, or in their words, ‘biggest whorehouse’:
“It would be cool if there was a large crowd to hopefully watch Germany get fucked, then we can go and do the same to their women” (pg 80)
“There’s something simple and pure about going with a prostitute” (pg 80)
They refer to a website- The International Sex Guide, which is a ‘guide’ to sex tourism, where men can rate the cheapest brothels and compare experiences and share photos.
Here are some quotes from The International Sex Guide Forum:
“Had tremendous service from a Nica at Musas, 11,000. No documentation. Short cute face not a spinner.
Also Zona Blue is rocking.
Had a double with Cyndi & Lisa. Cyndi was really good , Lisa so-so.Brenda and Pamela are very special girls.Picked a couple of college girls from Limon at Blue Marlin. Paid $100 for total noche. Tried one night and one the next. Both lacked experience, but tight.”
“I got a 23 year old chica in Guatemala to fuck me for free four times over the course of a week after she knew that had I stolen her cell phone from her in the club. All in good fun, of course.
She loved to punch me in the arm and tell me I could never borrow her cell phone ever again. When they hit you it tells you that you are really making progress!
But I’m not cheap, either. After our last night I gave her a enough to return to her country and see her family, along with a boxful of presents for herself and her baby who she had not seen in eight months.”
FRONT call this an ‘online support system’ that has ‘emboldened men who previously might have been reluctant’ (pg 80).
FRONT raise the issue of underage girls being involved in sex work, but then dismiss the responsibility of the men…because he may have drunk too much…and he may not be able to tell how old she is as 15 year olds can look 20… They also raise the issue of exploitation:
“For unskilled females, especially in poor countries, prostitution is often one of the only ways of avoiding total poverty…If it’s the only way for girls to get a better life, am I exploiting them?” (pg 81)
FRONT refer to sex tourism as “the perfect example of our global economy, with modern transportation and the Internet, matching itself to man’s most primitive needs” (pg81).
A primitive need..? More like an excuse to exploit and rape women and underage girls because they know they can get away with it. FRONT glamourises sex tourism and normalises paying for sex. Can these men not see past their penis to acknowledge the exploitation of paying a woman for sex..? And what’s worse is this imperialist mission to travel to a poor country to take advantage of their poverty and inadequate criminal justice system, just so they can have sex with women. In such distant countries, they can leave behind their responsiblities and do what ever they please to the sex workers, because they know they will get away with it. Why else would they bother travelling abroad to have sex..?
