Prostitution exist well than you might believe in Mauritius! This is the 3rd and final IC Hard Talk series where the discussion will be about prostitution in Mauritius and what Mauritians think about it. You can also check the IC Hard Series previous posts here if you missed any.
We talked about Sodomy Legalization and Marijuana Legalization in Mauritius but todays topic is not about legalizing prostitution! Today’s post is to discuss about the work we call prostitution and which is also known as the oldest work in the world.
For the short note, a prostitute is a person (male or female) who have sex with other person in exchange of money or other favours. Now we all know that prostitution exist since the dawn of civilisation!
In many countries prostitution is illegal. In other countries prostitution is allowed but with certain criterias to abide to. One place which is famous for being totally legal to prostitution is red-light district in Amsterdam.
In some countries (eg Japan) prostitution is allowed but it depend on what type of act is done! Oral is allowed while vaginal is a crime. In other countries (islamic ones and others) prostitution is a crime and is punished by death penalty.
In Mauritius prostitution is illegal! But we all know the truth na? Anytime you go to “Jardin Companie” you can get a prostitute to do a job for you. If people in Mauritius want quality prostitute then there are many hotels and beauty salon who do prostitution services in the back! In casinos of Mauritius it is known that “sociable” prostitution is done!
Prostitution is not a rare gem in Mauritius. Any tourist who come to Mauritius can have these services offered to him! Now the question is what do Mauritians think of prostitution? Do you think its a problem or is it a normal part of society which should be allowed? Is it a crime or is it acceptable? What is your general opinion on prostitution and about its effect in Mauritius? And to end, do you think prostitution in Mauritius attract tourists or it will have a bad effect on tourists activity in the long run?
