I have seen real ones when I was back in Wonderland on holiday but didn't know that they traded their wares online.
According to the Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights:
BYSHR acquired adequate statistics on the women who practice prostitution in Bahrain and the numbers of registered users in prostitution websites. The announced number is 13,539 persons from Bahrain. They include seekers and women. This number is increasing day after day. 1200 persons were added to the aforementioned number within only two days.
Seems like a lucrative business.
What leaves me scratching my head is that those women/playmates are available everywhere you turn your head.. so why would you seek them online?
Has the extent of the internet penetration (hehe..can't believe I am typing this) helped in exciting the business?
Or is local prostitution just developing and exploiting all available resources, including the www?
