Six years of crippling financial crisis have sent Greek students to the streets. However, not for anti-austerity protests but for sex. They allegedly “sell it very cheap,” for the price of “a cheese pie or a sandwich,” thus “offering the lowest prices of the industry across the Continent.”
“Some women just do it for a cheese pie or a sandwich they need to eat because they are hungry,” Gregory Lazos , professor of sociology at Panteion University in Athens told The Times and spoke about the results of a study he conducted .
Lazos conducted the study among 400 women working on the streets. The study has lasted 3 years. Many of these women were students.
They sell sex for a piece of bread – so to say – “in order to eat or cover basic needs and extra expenses as they have no money,” The Times and Lazos on The Times claim.
“80% of prostitutes in Greece are Greek women aged 17 to 20”.
The price for sex has dramatically decreased from €50 euro for 60 minutes down to “€2 for half an hour.“
“From the 18,500 prostitutes who work mainly in the streets throughout the country, since most brothels operated without a license, the majority now are desperate Greeks.”
End of quote.
I expect this level of desperation to spread quite rapidly in the coming months and years. What life blood is left in the global economy and the countries that make it up is being has been drained.
