Brazil’s sex tourism boom

Lisa Thompson

Young children are supplying an increasing demand from foreign tourists who travel to Brazil for sex holidays, according to a BBC investigation. Chris Rogers reports on how the country is overtaking Thailand as a destination for sex tourism and on attempts to curb the problem.

Her small bikini exposes her tiny frame. She looks no older than 13 – one of dozens of girls parading the street looking for clients in the blazing mid-afternoon sun. Most come from the surrounding favelas – or slums.

As I park my car, the young girl dances provocatively to catch my attention.

“Hello my name is Clemie – you want a programme?” she asks, programme being the code word they use for an hour of sex. Clemie asks for less than $5 (£3) for her services. An older woman standing nearby steps in and introduces herself as Clemie’s mother.

“You have the choice of another two girls, they are the same age as my daughter, the same price,” she explains. “I can take you to a local motel where a room can be rented by the hour. . . .

  1. How can it be that women world-wide have found themselves in this position. How can we as American women accept that even here we are unequal.

    This article mentions Thailand and Brazil but anyone who has seen Born to Brothels know that India is no different and the women living under Sharia Law and the killing or aborting of girls… can anyone think of even one place on this whole planet where women and girls are safe from gender specific crimes???

    but let the conversation continue to be about whether or not someone was called the n word.

    Woman is the Nigger of the World
    ——John Lennon

    Woman is the nigger of the world
    Yes she is…think about it
    Woman is the nigger of the world
    Think about it…do something about it

    We make her paint her face and dance
    If she won’t be a slave, we say that she don’t love us
    If she’s real, we say she’s trying to be a man
    While putting her down, we pretend that she’s above us

    Woman is the nigger of the world…yes she is
    If you don’t believe me, take a look at the one you’re with
    Woman is the slave of the slaves
    Ah, yeah…better scream about it

    We make her bear and raise our children
    And then we leave her flat for being a fat old mother hen
    We tell her home is the only place she should be
    Then we complain that she’s too unworldly to be our friend

    Woman is the nigger of the world…yes she is
    If you don’t believe me, take a look at the one you’re with
    Woman is the slave to the slaves
    Yeah…alright…hit it!

    We insult her every day on TV
    And wonder why she has no guts or confidence
    When she’s young we kill her will to be free
    While telling her not to be so smart we put her down for being so dumb

    Woman is the nigger of the world
    Yes she is…if you don’t believe me, take a look at the one you’re with
    Woman is the slave to the slaves
    Yes she is…if you believe me, you better scream about it

    We make her paint her face and dance
    We make her paint her face and dance
    We make her paint her face and dance
    We make her paint her face and dance
    We make her paint her face and dance
    We make her paint her face and dance

    • You got it! So long as they keep the focus on them but wearing out the race card – the bigger problem doesn’t get covered! Meanwhile Women are “the Niggers of the world” always were – but when do we start bitching loud enough to be heard?

    • Ms. Why waste our time with this nut.

      We are talking Same Sex marriage here – ya know like in monogamy! 50 % of hetero sexual marriages end in divorce and 90% of those are because of cheating and this nut is screaming about a gay germ that gays might pass around if we let them get married? What am I missing?

      Committed Gays stay together longer than do married hetero’s for heaven sakes – this is just a homophobe bigot who has no idea what the hell is what.

      This person is not even arguing the gay marriage bit – this person obviously wants gays eliminated altogether! Now I want to know what this person intends to do with the germy straight perverts who are running around with STD’s? What do we do with everyone this person doesn’t like ? Or does this person just not like gays but pedophiles might be ok? Oh I don’t know let’s ask? Since this person knows everything!
