    A friend from my hometown in Los Angeles sent me this story from the below link.

    It just sickens me! Althought it involes mixed races.
    The thing that is a total outrage is how the weak and the poor are preyed(sp) Upon, this happens everywhere it trandscends race, gender and country but not power and wealth. I found it very disturbing.

    I certainly found the paragraphs on children in the sex trade appalling, though not new. The article's focus, though, was on wealthy foreign women having sex with 20-something men in exchange for money and gifts. That didn't bother me.

    Preditors[sic] should be Predators What would be really good on here would be a Spell Checker!

    I find it amusing that the authorities are upset about the unwholsome relations between older women, and 20 something young men.

    Yet the child sex industry is so prevalent and overlooked that '1/3' of the local young teenage women are involved in the trade.

    I don't condone the sex trade at all, but...

    Don't you think there just might be a double standard there?

    BTW -

    'Homosexuality is outlawed in many African countries, including Kenya, and is often condemned as being "un-African" - a 'disease' imported from the West.

    Though rarely enforced, punishment in Kenya for gay sex is five to 14 years in jail. Sex between women is not mentioned in the law. ' - Reuters

    Africa is a very dangerous place to admit that you are gay, or apparently a woman not in a traditional role.

    I agree with Ducky44. These women are wierd, creepy, and desperate. 50 and 60-year olds traveling thousands of miles to have sex? icon_rolleyes.gif

    If you think this is bad you need to get out more.
    Guys do it all the time here and abroad. Does that discuss you. Women need unattached love too.
    Anything with underage children is sick no mater where it is.
    I say go for it ladies.

    Women with boytoys on the side is hardly new. It's just not talked about much.

    We have a hot straight friend, now happily married, who was the object of several wealthy women's affections when he was younger & single - but they didn't confuse it with love - it was a case of quid pro quo from the beginning.

    The shock to him was that he was disposable once they tired of him. That had never happened with traditional girlfriends.

    I have not read the article but I kinda get the message. You guys have not been travelling much do you. Male gigolo is everywhere in Asia. Try Kuta Beach Bali.Really poverty make people do all kinda things to survive. Try those nite club in Phuket, Kuala Lumpur , Pattaya . It really disgusting seeing all this overweight, old man with younger Asian kids. Throwing themself just to make money. Of course , because of my sexuality I dont know much about older lady, but I sure have heard about it.

    By the way one of my ex bf, is a younger kid who was a kept boy of an older Australian man (after we broke up). This kid have a series of western bf and view them as passport to migrate for a better life overseas. Like my bf , the Australian guys brought him to Australia , paid for his education, and his livimg expenses. Now he is a succesfull business men and a restaurant owner in his new country.

    Sorry to go off topic

    Actually zakariahzol has a point...

    I happen to know an American guy, VERY WEALTHY, who picks up street kids - say 14 yo's - he puts them up, pays their expenses, educates them - best schools, then Princton, Yale, etc, and gets them started in their carees. On their 22nd Birthday he buys them a car and a small condo. Then he starts over.

    At this point he is in his 70's, and I know several of the men he has 'helped get started'. a Doctor, two Lawyers, an Engeineer, a Teacher, I have to admit I have never heard one of them complain. they seem to care for him very much.

    It used to be pretty common in our communitty - even here in the US.

    Not all predators prey on children.

    There are those that prey on: The weak, the poor, the elderly, the ill, immigrants and the disenfranchised.

    Someone made a comment that they really did not see a problem with what was going on in Kenya. I have a huge problem with many because if your toss enough money at someone from an improvised nation, town or community.

    You can basically get them to do what you want you have power absolute over them, period.

    If you have never been in the position of not knowing where your next meal is coming from, and has always been empowered to make your own decisions, then of course you won't understand.

    But there are children, women and yes men, who do not have the luxury, who are prey on by the Rich and powerful.

    That is why I find what is going on in underdeveloped countries and in here in the US, because it happens here as well. It's called Human Trafficking. It's an outrage

    ducky, the the situation with the 20-something men in the article is NOTHING like human trafficking. Compare: a grown man who goes to bars to seek out sex with women of his choosing in exchange for gifts, versus a fourteen year old girl who is locked in a small room and raped by whomever pays her owner a fee.

    Actually, the most disturbing part of that article for me was the women who didn't like protected sex because it "ruined the fantasy." You know what else ruins the fantasy? Contracting HIV. How much common sense does it take to use protection when you are soliciting the services of a veritable sex worker in a nation where AIDS is so pervasive?

    I agree with you totally about these women or anyone for that matter not using protection!

    Squarejaw - do you say this because these are 20 year old men and not children. My point is it's under reported, there are quite a number of young adult males who are forced in to human trafficing .

    Just like there are unreported cases of male rape.

    My point is the across the board.

    What happens to young girls and women globally is ihnuman and if you were alluding that I was saying otherwise. You are mistaken sir.

    I have only sisters and I know vulnerable they are.
