Switzerland media outlets are reporting that escort services are fully booked for the week.
“Erotic entertainment” provider Aargau told the daily newspaper 20 Minuten that diplomats and businesses have hired their escorts for “themselves and their employees” to party in Davos hotels.
“For example, our women have already been brought to Davos by diplomats and company bosses. Some also book escorts for themselves and their employees to party in the hotel suite,” said the studio’s managing director.
Escorts are being hired for dinners and “subsequent sexual services.” Hired escorts describe the clientele as more demanding and having higher standards.
“The customers are more demanding than our normal clientele. Above all, women with a model figure and top appearance are in demand,” the manager said.
Some escorts are even being booked for a full three-day workload.
The head of Xenia’s “sex work department,” Christa Ammann told the Swiss outlet that her escorts offer a special wider range of services for elites at events like the WEF summit.
“The WEF belongs in the category of such events,” said Ammann.
Erotic services provider Villa-Velver has had their services fully booked with eleven reservations and 25 inquiries coming in per week.
“But I assume that there will be more,” said the organization.
“As soon as a customer books one of our ladies for at least four hours, she drives into the mountains.”
An entire night with one of their escorts costs up to $2,753 USD.
160 people were arrested by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Vice Unit during a seven-day undercover human trafficking operation, “Fall Haul 2,” which began on Tuesday, August 30, 2022. PCSO was assisted in the effort by police departments from Winter Haven, Haines City, Lake Wales, Davenport, and Bartow, as well as the Office of the State Attorney 10th Judicial Circuit, State Attorney Brian Haas, members from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), and social services organizations: One More Child, Heartland for Children, My Name My Voice, Selah Freedom, and the Children’s Home Society of Florida who provide on-site services to identified or potential trafficking victims.
Those who traveled to provide prostitution services were screened by detectives and social services organizations to determine if they were being trafficked or exploited by others.
Two trafficking victims, and another five possible victims, were identified. All prostitutes taken into custody were offered services by the social services organizations at the operation. Follow-up will be conducted with those who are suspected to be sex trafficked or exploited.
“The online prostitution industry enables traffickers and allows for the continued victimization of those who are being trafficked. Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and arrest those who are fueling the exploitation of human beings (Johns) and those profiting from the exploitation of human beings. Prostitution is not a victimless crime – it results in exploitation, disease, dysfunction, drug and alcohol addiction, violence, and broken families.” – Grady Judd, Sheriff
Some interesting notes from the operation: • 26 of those arrested told detectives that they are married. • Detectives charged those arrested with a total of 52 felonies and 216 misdemeanors. • Criminal histories of everyone arrested included 419 previous felonies and 619 previous misdemeanors. Some of the prior histories include charges for kidnapping, robbery, aggravated battery, and sex offenses. • 15 of the arrested were from other states and one was from Puerto Rico (Georgia, Michigan, New York, California, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Arizona). • 16 suspects live in Polk County. • 12 suspects told detectives they receive government assistance. • Detectives seized cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, MDMA (Ecstasy), and marijuana, from those arrested during the operation.
Most of the women engaged in prostitution have experienced severe sexual abuse in childhood, according to testimonies from women caught up in the cycle and those who have left it.
Na’ama Goldberg, founder and director of the Don’t Stand Aside (Lo Omdot Mineged) organization, said women entering prostitution in Israel are those who have no choice.
“In many cases we are talking about severe traumas such as incest, girls coming from non-functioning homes, complete with neglect of their emotional needs, running away from home and straight into the arms of pimps with the aim of seeking love. That’s where the vicious circle begins.”
A pilot scheme in Leeds to allow sex workers to ply their trade on the streets without fear of arrest will continue indefinitely after the council announced it had improved the safety of prostitutes and made it easier for them to report crimes.
The scheme, piloted by police and the local council, allows prostitutes to work in a “managed area” between 7pm and 7am.
The decision comes just three weeks after a sex worker was murdered in Holbeck, an area in the center of the city. West Yorkshire Police Superintendent Sam Millar called the scheme “brave” and pioneering.
“Having gone through years and years of enforcement, which hasn’t achieved the outcomes of breaking the cycle of sex work, we wanted to do something different which might help us better achieve those outcomes, to be brave and take some risks.”
Councilor Mark Dobson said although the scheme is not a “universal cure-all,” it offers a “pragmatic approach” to the issue.
The council says the scheme has improved community relations, the safety of sex workers and allowed prostitutes to report incidents of harassment without facing recrimination.
