A FLOATING brothel on a luxury yacht servicing Monaco Grand Prix spectators has been busted.

East European hookers - some models and porn stars - were used to lure men aboard for 300-an-hour sex sessions.

Others paid 20,000 for 24 hours on the 120ft craft moored in Monaco harbour and with good views of the street racetrack.

The brothel was advertised on the net in the run up to the F1 weekend.

Police, who raided after public complaints, said: "We found around 25 working prostitutes and various clients." Three men were arrested and charged with aggravated pimping.

The girls and clients were cautioned. The yacht was impounded

If you're going to start in about prostitiution being a victimless crime, you really need help.

How do you aggravate a pimp? Don't pay him!

Hmmm, lessee, that can't be right...

Personnel experience Chris?

Dockage fee for a Med tie-up can be $10,000 per night at that event!

Katherine, prostitution exploits women only because it is illegal. Since the law will not protect them, they are forced to turn to pimps to protect them, except the pimps don't, they exploit them. The pimps would go out of business, or at least be forced to accept a reasonable cut of the income, if it were legal. The Netherlands does a good job with it. They have actually established a streetwalkers park in Amsterdam, a "hooker country safari," to allow them to practice their trade safely. Seems to work well.

Unless it your husband or boyfriend out looking for the hooker.

That sounds like a personal problem, Katherine.

Thats a whole nother can of worms. I have never sought the services available, I am very happy at home. Some men are not, that may be a pathology, it may be something else, I do not know. But I do believe that the exploitation of prostitutes is made possible by the fact that its illegal, and would not be possible if prostitution were legal and regulated.

It would seem that the Boyfriend or husband has the problem if he is out looking for a hooker. ;)

I agree with legalization of prostitution.

Does buying dinner count as "payment"?

I didn't make that comment. You don't strike me as someone who'd put up with that sort of thing. But I have seen that the auto business is a "good old boy" sort of milieu, with golf outings maybe followed by some paid entertainment being thought of as semi-tolerated, winked at behavior, boys will be boys after all. I am disgusted at such goings on, myself.

I don't golf. But I will admit that I business trips, I've seen some less then professional behavior. I've also noticed that the after hours entertainment is different when there are women traveling in the group then when it is just men.

What a great idea!
As far as prostitution goes... I don't really care. No matter how much you protest that you don't, you do pay for it every time, no matter whom it is with.

05-28-2005, 10:17 AM
MrLeft, that sounds like a personnel problem. :D

Prostitution was decriminalised here in NZ recently. Ther was a huge debate about it. I dont think its a great thing. Some people need sex and some need money, its a reality but I dont think it should be encouraged. The thing that got me thinking was what if your 16 year old (legal) daughter got involved? How would you feel if the "client" was a friend, or an enemy?.

Its like the so called war on drugs, the war is lost and can never ever ever be "won" Lets educate instead as there is no use moralising and denying and locking people up over it.

Prostitution is legal in most parts of Aus. I think. Ligit business, members of chambers of commerce, you can even buy shares in some. Protected by health and safety laws and all. Of course there are still street workers, drug abuse, illegal imprisoned asian women forced into the trade by violence. It's that sort of industry, too much money to be made to keep corruption out of the picture.
As far as floating brothels, in the late 1800's a couple had a barge on the Murray/Darling river system with a rum still on one end and a brothel on the other. Had it moved by passing paddlesteamers if the trade got slow. Did quite well I bet :rolleyes:

There was a brothel boat on the mooring next to me a couple of years ago. I only ever saw it go out twice - furtive looks by all on board as they slipped the mooring.

It obviously didn't cover its costs and was gone after a year.
