    Red-light District

    Founded an interesting article about Rio De Janeiro´s Red Light District. Maybe some of the information is old, but most is from 2013. Sex and Survival in Rio’s Red-Light District Source pulitzercenter.org/ Carolina, a prostitute and community activist, stands on a street near to Vila Mimosa, Rio de Janeiro’s oldest and largest red-light district. Image by Lauren Wilks. Brazil, 2013. LAUREN WILKS, FOR THE PULITZER CENTER Turning the corner onto Rua Sotero dos Reis, a conspicuously bulky camera swinging from my shoulder, it wasn't long before I reluctantly conceded that it had been a good idea to bring Matheus. Vila Mimosa — VM as it’s known by locals — is a far cry from the glamorous sex scene of Copacabana. Away from the hubbub of downtown Rio on the west side of the city, the entire neighbourhood is currently engulfed by construction works; it is easy to miss, unless you know what you’re looking for. The area is also infamous for its criminal gangs; Vila Mimosa is regularly raided by the police for drug trafficking offenses. As a fair-haired gringa (foreigner), I’d been advised not to snoop around. Luckily, Matheus belongs to a local biker gang and his burly presence provided the protection I needed to navigate Rio’s oldest and largest red-light district. On first sight, Vila Mimosa appears to be nothing more than a jumbled warren of dilapidated buildings and leaking pipes. A mixture of ramshackle houses, laundry services, pool halls and bars clutter the main drag, posing as “respectable” businesses. Matheus explains that, although prostitution is legal in Brazil, running a brothel is not; each of these establishments therefore holds a legal registration of trade. Despite its unassuming façade, business at Vila Mimosa is thriving. According to the residents’ association, the district receives close to four thousand visitors a day, generating $430,000 USD each month. An estimated 2,000 women work here, providing cheap thrills to a primarily straight, working-class male clientele (male and transgender prostitutes are confined to other quarters of the city). Some work part-time, holding down day jobs as maids and cashiers; others work around the clock. It is mid-afternoon as we enter the crumbling edifices and business is just getting started. In dimly-lit rooms – some throbbing with neon-tube lighting, some adorned with the odd Halloween decoration – scantily-clad women drape themselves across doorframes and chat in half-empty bars with friends. Stopping to linger between rooms, we catch glimpses of female silhouettes gyrating to Brazilian funk and fawning over the few clients that have arrived early to avoid the Saturday-night rush. Others simply sit around, waiting. A world away from the image of the “happy” prostitute learning English, or the boutique “love motel” commonly associated with sex-for-sale in Brazil, Vila Mimosa is the darker side of Rio’s sex industry. Prices bottom out at $20 USD per “program” and many of those found working here do so out of desperation, necessity and a lack of real alternatives. It is as close as you can get to “survival sex.” But for some, Vila Mimosa is a place of relative freedom that offers the chance to earn quick money. Carolina is a prostitute and community activist who came to Vila Mimosa a decade ago, after working in a variety of sex venues across Rio, São Paulo and the state of Minas Gerais. I was introduced to her on my second trip to the district and, as we sat at a makeshift bar on the street where she lives, she explained why she prefers Vila Mimosa to the more glamorous hotspots of Rio's sex scene. Despite a grueling schedule, Carolina failed to make enough money in the fancier, upscale places she worked. At one high-end club in Minas Gerais, she was forced to pay 60 reais ($25 USD) just to show up to work. “If I worked a 24-hour shift, I needed seven clients just to break even,” she says. “Sometimes I would work all night and still go home with nothing.” By contrast, Carolina earned enough money in one week at Vila Mimosa to furnish her apartment; she could even pay someone to watch her children while she worked. At Vila Mimosa, she chooses her own hours and has control over who she accepts as a client. “I don’t go upstairs with guys who are high,” she asserts. Carolina knows that downtown brothels are safer – only last month a woman was shot dead by a client in Vila Mimosa — but she does not want to compete against other (younger and more attractive) women for business. In high-end brothels, she reveals, clients choose girls from a line-up. Leaving work empty-handed is a risk that Carolina, now in her forties, cannot afford. Content working at Vila Mimosa, the excitement of the World Cup will not tempt Carolina to work downtown. Because of Vila Mimosa’s peripheral position in the city, the majority of Carolina’s clients are not gringos but locals, and she intends to keep it that way. “I’ve had better experiences with Brazilians, in terms of paying and not paying,” she explains. If anything, Carolina worries that, like the Rio+20 Conference in June 2012, the World Cup might lead to a decline in business. “Rio+20 was the worst time ever. Nobody came for a program; they only wanted to interview us.” When asked about other concerns facing residents, Carolina shrugged off eviction. She believes proposals to build a high-speed train connecting Rio and São Paulo (and cutting right through Vila Mimosa) won’t come off. Even if they did, she argues, it wouldn’t bring substantial change for those living and working here: they will continue to turn tricks at rock-bottom prices. For Carolina, there are more pressing concerns than the looming threat of eviction. Increased competition caused by the proliferation of “saunas” in Rio’s business district, poor working conditions, social stigma and daily risks to health and safety are just a few of the issues we discussed. The spectre of eviction and the promised bounties of the World Cup are simply not on her radar. Vila Mimosa is just one of several areas of prostitution in Rio where “the World Cup effect” is likely to be limited. “Everybody thinks Copacabana and Vila Mimosa are the only areas of prostitution,” says anthropologist Thaddeus Blanchette. “But we’ve mapped 279 prostitution points across the city, including Vila.” Little is known about the day-to-day existences of those living and working in these less-documented areas, less still about those engaging in sex work in favelas. But it is likely that life in these places resembles that in Vila Mimosa more closely than that found along Copacabana’s glitzy beachfront. Like other communities located beyond the beating heart of Rio’s city centre, Vila Mimosa is largely untouched by the development plans that are transforming other (more desirable) parts of the city. Residents are too preoccupied with their daily struggles to fret about the lingering possibility of having to move. Disconnected from the opportunities and excitement found elsewhere in the city, they expect to reap little of the rewards that others are already claiming from the World Cup. Like Carolina, most will continue to sell sex for as little as $20 USD per “program.” Carolina’s name has been changed to protect her identity.

    The most important word in Ecuador for mongers is "chongos"; In Loja there is five clubs named Las Vegas, Manhattan, Escorpion, California, and Imperio. They are about five km out of town and price of girl is $3-4 US. You will know you are getting close by when pavement quickly turns into dirt road and street lamps will disappear. Two police guards are at the gate and a sign that reads "Zona Tolerencia,". Down a hill you spot five neon-lit buildings and tou will be at Red Light Zone of Loja.

    I guess in Keflavik there is some call girls. Selling sexual services is legal. Paying for sexual services is illegal. In 2007, buying and selling sexual services was legalized as long as third parties did not profit from the earnings of prostitutes. In Apr. 2009 the Icelandic Parliament passed legislation to prohibit paying for prostitution.

    Latvian President Vaira Vike-Freiberga called ‘Buy Bye Beauty’ by Pål Hollander ‘political propaganda’ that didn’t meet standards of objectivity. Hollander’s movie, recently shown at the Gothenburg Film Festival, depicted a gloomy picture of the sex industry in Latvia. Hollander interviewed a number of people involved with the Latvian pornography industry while making the film, many of them prostitutes. Based on his interviews, the filmmaker claimed there are about 18,000 prostitutes in Latvia. According to official statistics, there are 2500 to 3000 prostitutes in the country. Hollander also claimed that about 50 percent of Latvian women have had sex for money. Prostitution is Legal and girls are Required monthly health check. Brothel Ownership is Illegal.

    Prostitution is illegal in Lithuania but remained a problem. The penalty is a fine of 300 to 500 litas (approximately $124 to $207) for a single offense and up to 1,000 litas ($415) for repeat offenses. In the first eight months of the year, police charged 72 women with administrative violations for prostitution… Penalty fine is quite high if you compare it to the average monthly salary in Lithuania, which is $943 a month.

    Prostitution is legal in Luxembourg, but the activities associated with organized prostitution, such as profiting from, aiding, or trafficking prostitutes are punishable by law. The country is a destination for women trafficked transnationally for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Source countries during the year primarily included Romania and Ukraine. During the year the government identified nine victims of trafficking. At year’s end authorities were prosecuting one perpetrator for trafficking, and had tried and convicted nine others for procuring prostitution and human trafficking.

    I guess most people who live in Luxembourg would travel to nearby countries to fuck hookers because of cheaper rates and options.

    I would think that only Oslo have street prostitutes and other cities have mostly hookers working in private apartments and hotels. One article I founded: A new law has come into force in Norway making the purchase of sex illegal. Norwegian citizens caught paying for prostitutes at home or abroad could face a hefty fine or a six-month prison sentence, authorities say. The prison sentence could be extended to three years in cases of child prostitution. The Norwegian authorities say they want to stamp out sex tourism and street prostitution by targeting clients rather than prostitutes… The tough new measures go further than similar ones introduced by other Nordic countries such as Sweden and Finland. Norwegian police have been authorised to use wire-tapping devices to gather evidence. There has already been a visible decrease in women working on the streets of central Oslo, local media report. Prostitutes will be offered access to free education and health treatment for those with alcohol or drugs problems. Selling sexual services is legal in Norway, but purchasing sex is illegal.

    How is the law in Romania now when it comes to the prostitution? I founded this article and according to that; Romanian authorities are planning to legalize prostitution as a way to help fight human trafficking and sex slavery, police said on September, 1st. Selling sexual favors is now a crime punishable by fines or up to three years in prison in Romania. However, because the crime is considered petty, most prostitutes only face fines, with some prostitutes collecting over 500 fines in the last two years, Bucharest police said. The fines are rarely paid, and tax collection authorities cannot enforce them as most prostitutes have no legal income…. Pimps face up to seven years in prison, or up to 20 years if they traffic minors, but despite efforts by law enforcement sex trafficking remains widespread.

    According to this article, Quarteira in Portugal seems like a good sex tourism destination if you look the cheap price of sex! Prostitution in Quarteira has been steadily rising over the past years, mainly due to the influx of immigrant women from Eastern Europe, Brazil and Africa. At the moment there are 80 street prostitutes in Quarteira, according to AIDS Support Movement… They sell their services for as little as €20 and many times must settle for less as the interested parties haggle and the harsh competition forces them to accept the cheaper price. Their clientele is extremely varied; labourers, doctors, lawyers, tourists, students and even the elderly drive down the street at an idle speed to satisfy their urge, explained the psychologist who has been helping women protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases for the past seven years. The AIDS Support Movement distributes condoms and information pamphlets teaching prostitutes how to put on a condom even if the client does not want to use one… In 2007 there were 80 prostitutes working in Quarteira, 78 women and two transsexuals, 65% of them were foreign. Prostitution is Legal in Portugal, but brothel Ownership is Illegal

    Prostitution in Russia is illegal, but is not a serious crime. The maximum punishment is a fine up to 2000 rub; however, organizing prostitution is punishable by a prison term. Prostitution in Russia became common after Peter The Great’s military reforms that created a sizable class of unmarried men who were serving in military. These soldiers started generating a demand for prostitution. Monarchs who followed Peter I, had different approaches to prostitution, ranging from complete abolition to decriminalization. By the late 19th century, prostitution was legal in the Russian Empire. Numerous brothels existed in most cities, ranging greatly in class and prices. Customer included diverse groups ranging from aristocracy to working class. Legally, only women were allowed to own brothels. However, illegal street prostitution was still dominated by male pimps. The term kot was used for a male pimp, while female pimp was referred to as bandersha. Prostitution has been illegal in Russia since the establishment of the Soviet Union. However, during the post-Soviet years this industry experienced significant growth. Tochka is a popular euphemism for an outdoor market for prostitutes in Moscow and other large Russian cities, a word literally meaning ‘point’ or ‘location’ in Russian. The word “tochka” may also be used in many other contexts. Its usage is originated from the notion “a point on the map”. Initially it was used in military and geologist slang to denote, e.g., a military or geologist base or other specific location. Over time its usages was expanded. For example, in alcoholics’ parlance, a “tochka” is a place where vodka is sold. You can read more from: http://www.wikisexguide.com/wiki/Russia
