    You may have noticed certain activities in Santo Domingo and Sosua as well with the same thrust of trying to remove prostitution from public view.
    I was in the capitol for about a week. I drove on the Malecon a couple of nights from the east side out to Nunez and counted about 30 or so girls waiting for clients in plain view. I remember years ago they chased them past Lincoln but now they start once again right after Gomez.

    And this will be accomplished in Sosua by systematically closing down every Venue which kept it Indoors ?

    I think them closing down a few more bars is just that, closing down a few more
    bars/ clubs. If they were serious about getting rid of prostitution in this country,
    they would start with the education sector. I think they are serious about cleaning
    up the DR´s sex tourist reputation but nothing more.

    I would not know about that. When I was there that one time, it was all over for all to see.

    I am all for keeping it indoors. I have been to SD and Santiago and have seen it in the streets a bit but not like Sosua.

    Bingo. It is all about cleaning up the sex tourist reputation.

    I guess I must be missing something here; "isn't prostitution legal in the DR"?
    If the powers-to-be wish to curtail the business I would think a law should first
    be passed that makes prostitution a criminal offense.

    The issue in play right now it appears is 'the sexual exploitation of women'. Either pimping them or having them on your premises to attract punters in, knowing they are selling sex, appears to be the target of the authorities.

    Now ladies exploiting desperate men (including those waiting all along the Malecon) is by all accounts perfectly legal?

    Yes, its LEGAL, and yet people even here are posting that the Johns should be arrested ( and in the DR being arrested, usually includes a HEFTY Shakedown and Extortion).
    Not to mention Massive Attorney Fees.... which of course the Corrupt Cops and Lawyers would Split up..

    Then you get back home you may find out you have lost your JOB, and are probably going to be Labeled a Sexual Predator in your Community.

    Yes, that should solve it.. and improve Tourism.

    An extract from the piece in today's DR1 News: " Reportedly, 32 women were rescued from sexual exploitation." Rescued? Don't make me laugh!
