Greek Sex Scene: Financial Crisis Forces Greek Students to Sell Themselves

The Greek financial crisis has sent thousands of teenage girls to the streets, not to protest, but to earn a living; however, their hourly earnings are barely enough to buy them a cheese sandwich, according to one researcher.

Eastern Europe, a former leader in terms of its number of prostitutes, can no longer boast that it has the cheapest rates for sex. Greece’s deep economic and financial problems have shifted the priorities of its students, who face the highest unemployment rate in Europe, according to the EU’s statistics agency Eurostat. The national unemployment rate was 25% as of September and the youth unemployment rate in 2014 was 52.4%; both these figures are the worst in the EU.

“Some women just do it for a cheese pie or a sandwich they need to eat because they are hungry,” Gregory Lazos, a professor of sociology at the Athens-based Panteion University told The Times while commenting on the results of his research. They “sell it very cheap,” he said, “offering the lowest prices of the industry across the continent.”

The study lasted for three years and was conducted among 400 young women, mostly students, who have abandoned their hopes that the Greek government, which has constantly been on the verge of bankruptcy, can offer them an alternative. Prostitution is legal in Greece and both brothels and prostitutes must register with the government. However, brothels often operate without any license and have seen a huge influx of female students aged 17-20 who now account for 80% of the country’s prostitutes; they often earn just 2 euros per half hour.

Greek female students become prostitutes “in order to eat or cover basic needs and extra expenses as they have no money,” The Times quoted Lazos as saying. According to Greece’s National Centre for Social Research (EKKE), the rate of prostitution has soared by 150 per cent during the economic crisis. The organization estimates that there are currently 20,000 prostitutes in Greece, of whom fewer than 1,000 are legally registered.

“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,” the study said. Full story

Our Take

If true, it shows you bad the situation in Greece is and sadly it also illustrates how accurate the Poverty index has been over the years. As this index is showing no signs of letting up, we expect the outlook to worsen both in Europe and America.  This is what joining the EU did for Greece and the same applies to weaker nations such as Bulgaria, Hungary, Portugal, Spain, etc.  These countries should have never joined as joining provided them with the option to borrow money they could never hope to pay back. 

Now that the US has embraced the Devalue or Die era and forced central bankers worldwide to adopt the same stance, we can expect situations like this all over the world.  The tragedy in this is that the innocent always pay the price and the price is very severe usually. Imagine how terrible your position has to be for you to have to sell your body for food.  This trauma will haunt these young Girls for the rest of their lives. 

Sadly our adult and poverty index predicted this situation years in advance of the current development. Take a look at the chart below, higher numbers are associated with a rise in immoral behaviour.  The index is trading at multi-year highs.

Wages are falling forcing many into the Oldest Business

The average Greek wage has fallen to just €600 (£450) a month and half of all young people are unemployed. So it’s not surprising that the people of Greece are voting for a party which seems to represent progress.

But there’s another side to Greece’s mass unemployment; one which has been little reported on.

According to the National Centre for Social Research (EKKE), the rate of prostitution in the country has soared by 150 per cent during the economic crisis, meaning that women who would otherwise have sought other types of employment are turning to sex work in order support themselves and their families.

There are currently an estimated 20,000 prostitutes in Greece (according to EKKE) of which fewer than 1,000 are legally registered.  Full Story

I was sitting a foot away on a tiny couch fitted using a plastic slipcover inside a brothel, witnessing This kind of age-old transaction. We were on Filis Street — a warren of alleyways along with dingy two-story houses — which has been home to Athenian brothels for most of the past century.

The trade can be more desperate right now because of Greece’s lost decade since the 2008 financial crisis, which has left no profession unscathed. The collapsed economy along with the arrival of tens of thousands of migrants have pushed even more women into prostitution — even as prices have fallen through the floor.

Heading to Greece now with a boatload of sandwiches and pies.

The irony could not be more striking. “Brothels and prostitutes must register with the government”. It still has not occurred to these morons that the overly regulated private sector which successive socialist governments created is what greatly contributes to the high unemployment rates which result in these women turning to prostitution. Until they are literally reduced to scores of people begging they seem incapable of grasping where they have gone wrong. Kill entrepreneurship and individual initiative and you will kill your society.

Could not agree more with you. However, Greece should have never joined the EU as they only reason they joined was the easy access to the credit markets membership provided. We all know the party has to end one day especially if you are not the US, which has the ability to create as much money as it wants out of thin air.

Over regulation though is definitely a major issue was well. However, those in charge don’t seem to care how many people they lay to waste as long as their bellies and pockets are full

Results of socialism promising everything & having no money to provide anything! had riots a few years ago because of making these crazy promises to get elected then.. oops!

It’s not in our best interest for here, in the U.S. for Federal Reserve to just print out money. It only causes more poverty in the long run. You must not live in the United States or you’d know this. Besides we owe way more money to China, that won’t ever be paid off in my generation or my child’s generation either. They can’t even pay the Interest on the money borrowed without taking out more loans. In the U.S. Kids Born in 2016 Hold $42,000 in Public Debt
By the time most of this generation can vote, their portion of the federal debt will already be $68,000 per person.

We also would rather work in a diner/McDonalds/fast food joint than sell our bodies for sex. I wonder what diseases those prostitutes are spreading around, giving to their own children that would be in their bodies later on after college??? Take a nanny job, clean houses, take in laundry anything besides being a hooker for Christmas sakes. If they ate in college they should know all those things. They sound like a bunch of lazy whores in my opinion.

Exactly the problem!
Here’s the problem: what we’re seeing in Greece right now is much, much worse than anything that’s happened in the U.S. economically since 2008. Thousands of people over there truly are lining up outside the banks. Even more Greeks are starting to hoard cash, food, and medicine. This isn’t just hurting the Greek people with overpriced homes or a bubble-inflated stock portfolio. That nation is on the heels of a real panic.
And yet while Greece’s epic debt problems have dominated the news, I haven’t heard very much about who is to blame for what’s happened in that country. When any bank or other capitalist entity fails, the news media and the general public seem to name their favorite specific villains almost instantly. The word “profit” becomes dirty somehow and public figures start pining away for a more giving society that never was. But where is the condemnation of socialism and the failed politicians who peddled a proven failure of a system not only to the Greeks but to the half billion people who live in the E.U.? Where is the recognition that when the Greeks recently elected an even more leftist and socialist government, it sped up the path to collapse? Why is this Greek crisis being depicted as simply some kind of surprising isolated incident or the failure of a quirky nation that has some kind of unique set of challenges? Even if you watch all the great interviews Michelle Cabruso-Cabrera has been conducting on CNBC with ordinary Greek citizens, you won’t hear socialism blamed by the people… ever. Even in the eye of one of the worst postwar economic storms in European history, socialism is getting yet another pass.
