The going rate for sex has fallen from €50 (£35) at the beginning of the crisis, to as low as just €2 for a single session, Professor Lazos toldThe Times.
OK, terribly cheap now.
Professor Lazos said that his study, which records the cases of 18,500 sex workers in Greece, ‘reflects a society in denial about the changes taking place.’
OK, call it 20k girls on the game. Sounds about right for a country the size of Greece. Possibly a bit high even.
The Greek academic’s findings suggest that Greek women now dominate 80 per cent of the sex trade industry, which has become a €600 million business.
Don’t think so really, do you? 300 million shags a year at €2 a pop, if that’s quite the correct word? That’s 30 paid shags per year for every man woman and child in the country. Even at 50 a pop it’s still 12 million shags. Two per tart per day might work out. But not at that lower price.
