Sex in Recession

Sex sells but not as much as it used to. Not even the Jamaican sex industry is recession-proof, it’s the latest casualty of the current economic crisis. Though far more resilient than other industries it isn’t immune to the economics of supply and demand. Prostitutes and sensual massage parlours have seen a 50% decline in profits and clientele. A sensual massage usually comes in second when it’s up against gas for the car, food for the table or lunch money for the kids. Jamaican sex workers are scrambling to retain customers by offering a 33% reduction in their hourly rates, from J$1,500 to J$1,000. You know it’s bad when you can buy sex for the price of a pizza or a bucket of fried chicken.

Glad you had the article as reference. Thought for a minute you had gathered primary data on the subject.

I take your point on the priorities issue, guess men will have to go back to having sex with their spouses.....Unthinkable:)

Nah, I passed on the field work. Aside from the occasional trip to the go-go club I don't patronize the local sex industry. “Role playing” is the closest i'll get to sex with a prostitute.

"sex with their spouses", Oh the horror! :)

@ Gussie, " I passed on the field work." ROFLMAO. Nuff respect!

Things are really rough when even the price of sex has to be slashed to maintain an income. Basic needs will always take forefront, food, clothing and shelter.
