A Ukrainian prostitute in Berlin

Mauro Bottaro / Anzenberger / Redux

 

On a hot Sunday night, a car pulls over in the port of Odessa, southern Ukraine. About 30 girls swarm around it, posing in the glare of its headlights. The driver´s window rolls down and a female pimp — known by the girls, almost lovingly, as a mamachka — leans inside to negotiate a price. Within a minute, two girls have hopped into the car and the rest go back to chatting and dragging on their cigarettes. Business is brisk, but the girls look bored. For them, this is basically downtime.

"The real action is in the Emirates, Dubai or Antalya," says Masha, a stick-thin 19-year-old who teeters a little on her heels. "Don´t be confused," she says. "Nobody takes us by the hair and drags us onto the ships." She gestures toward the mouth of the port. "Those are like the gates to freedom for a lot of us," she says. "Yeah, like the Statue of Liberty," adds another girl, and the group of them erupts into laughter.

Have you paid attention to the red bold text? They think it´s their freedom.

Have YOU paid attention for what I wrote above?  As I said, for every article like this, there are reports of very different stories.  Women are frequently promised legitimate jobs, visas and a new life and often pay huge sums of money to "agencies" for this service.  When they arrive in the new country, they find that it has all been a hoax and that they are trapped into prostitution.  Some are literally kept prisoner, others are bullied, abused and fed drugs. Cases have been well documented. 

Posts (and articles) like yours give a very false impression - there is a horrible and growing sex trafficking trade out there.

While the report you posted shows women willingly going abroad to become prostitutes, I would like to see them interviewed in 5 years time.....or even 6 months.  It would be a very different story...

An interesting article - although written in 2006.  Human trafficking has increased hugely even since this was written:-
