A reader forwarded this link to me, and I found it extremely interesting because it looks like this has been happening for quite a while and they even have hundreds of fans on their Facebook page and followers on Twitter.
It’s hilarious because they talk about “sensual experience” and a “beirut sex guide” but insist that these are “independent women (and men)” as if to legally shield themselves from being indicted with running a brothel, or at least a prostitution ring, something illegal in Lebanon.
The suggestive photos and “hourly rates” are eerily familiar to the stories you hear about prostitution rings, only minus the taxi cab drivers and disgusting venues. Just browse the website, get in contact, and it seems you’ll have quite a good time with the girls and boys available.
What’s funny is that it looks like it’s a booming business with subsidiary websites, YouTube montages and a presence on social media. As for the “massage” and “manicure” ploy, come on guys, why do I need photos of my manicurist or masseuse in a bikini and sexy poses if there wasn’t a “happy ending” involved? And blurred faces?
I don’t really have a problem with people selling their bodies for sex of it’s their free choice and they’re safe. It’s their bodies after all and I don’t really have the right to tell them what they can and cannot do, regardless of the laws. However, prostitution isn’t a dream career, it’s usually one rife with violence, human trafficking, unhealthy working conditions and even a form of slavery and often underage sex workers that are forced into this by “pimps” and the absence or failure of scumbag parents who “sell” their kids to feed their own vices.
That’s what I’m worried about most, the rights and working conditions of these sex workers, and that’s why I feel something should be done. It would be completely unacceptable to find out for example young boys and girls are being exploited, or that refugees or illegal immigrants trafficked here are being taken advantage of by criminals.
What are your thoughts? Especially with the recent “moral crackdown” by a few stupid Lebanese officials on the homosexual community that has yet to be found guilty of any crime while this obviously illegal practice is thriving?
Turns out the images are ripped off from foreign escort websites! Thank you Jean Marc S. for digging further and finding this extra irregularity! I guess when you order one of the models, you’re gonna probably get disappointed with the actual “escort”
