The future of Sosua

With the attempt at ending the prostitution in Sosua, so that Sosua may be reborn as a family destination, does anyone know what the actual plan is?

Would it not make more sense to just move the prostitution to another area and attempt to 'control' it? It's not like you can end it, the mongers will continue to come, and the ladies will continue offer their services.

So if you force them to go elsewhere isn't elsewhere gonna have the same "Problem?" Why wish it on elsewhere?

If the problem is that families don't want to walk down the street filled with prostitutes, then by moving the prostitution to a sanctioned area, would that not solve the problem and keep business going?

This has been discussed to a large extent on DR1. While there are no laws against a prostitute to offer her services directly to a john, there are laws against other people pimping those services. Setting up businesses to aid and promote prostitution could be considered illegal. That may be why a "red light district" is hard to realize.

If the prostitution were not "in your face" you would not see the various actions taken over the years like closing the fronts of businesses, dress codes, etc. The government certainly has no easy and viable approach on this.

Many people, including Dominicans do not choose to ignore it. Are you going to tell them they should ignore it? As a Libertarian, I think people should be able to do whatever they want to as long as it does not hurt someone else. Many people do not think that way.

What about the families living there? Don't they count?

I'm not sure there has been any decision to make Sosua a "family destination."

That is a classic Straw Man argument.

There was a move to institute a semi-official "red light" area near the new Cestur station a couple of years ago. The idea being that the business could continue, away from where the hoards of families would go. Somebody actually started constructing a place where the bars could be. Of course, as the plan changes with the wind here, the construction was brought to a screeching halt by the "powers that be" and the scheme never got off the ground.

Yes, they're the ones making the change. Do you really think we have any say in the matter?
Me? No. I think it is none of our business! No idea how to state that more clearly.

H’mmmmm? Your numbers seem inflated? I was there last night too. Having dinner and drinks on the patio at the former Rumbas watching the street. The number of “strollers” seemed significantly reduced during the time I observed (8:30pm-10pm approx).

For that entire time period, there were two female police officers stationed on either side of the sidewalk in front of Bourbon Street. I didn’t see them make any arrests, but most chicas seemed to be pretty intimidated by them. They would start to walk down PC from the Dr Rosen corner, but as soon as they saw the PN (they were Policia National. Not CESTUR) they would stop for a moment, then usually do an about face.

It almost seemed to me that the PN was trying to harass the Bourbon Street Bar by stationing the PN there. The place was empty.

I can’t say what happpened after 10pm though.
