Brazil´s Employment Website Offered Tips for Those Wishing to Attempt Prostitution

Brazil’s anti-HIV policies were recognised globally as a success in the 1990s

According to the locals, it’s the bar capital of the world, with more than 12,000 catering for the five million citizens of Brazil’s third city. Others will recall Belo Horizonte as the scene of England’s most humiliating football defeat, when a hearse driver and teacher from the US stunned the national team at the 1950 World Cup. But if the 5,000 or so English ticket holders expected here for England’s final group game against Costa Rica in a few weeks’ time look a little more closely, they may remember it for something else. As is the case across Brazil, peer behind the mask and another reality stares back at you.

In downtown Belo Horizonte are 23 brothels, known locally as zonas. They are hidden up narrow staircases between shops in the grim city centre, a place so grey, in parts, that you could be in the old Soviet Union except for the scorching sun above. Nearby, in an empty office on the top floor of a shopping centre, a handful of the 2,000 or so prostitutes who work the city are getting English classes from a volunteer in order to cash in on the six matches the city’s Mineirão stadium will host (including one semi-final). All the while, tucked away at the back of an indoor car-park, is Aprosmig – a union for those within the industry in the state of Minas Gerais (the name is a contraction of the “Minas Gerais association of prostitutes”). “For sure [the city’s prostitutes] will get more money with the World Cup,” says the fiftysomething woman working the desk. “In the nightclubs they’ll be earning a lot. It’s normal for foreign guys to look for them, they always do, and now there’ll be more foreign guys. They’ll do very well.

Inside, pasted to a grubby wall are erotic photographs and charts of the body, notes about diseases, numbers for doctors and timetables for psychology sessions. As the woman potters about, she tells her story, a familiar narrative. Having become pregnant and seen the factory she worked in shut down, she took a job as a cleaner. But the family she worked for put pressure on, insisting they should adopt her child, and she felt she couldn’t keep both job and baby, but neither could she go hungry. There was one avenue to walk down. “I prostituted when my child was sleeping,” she sighs. “But it was weird, lying there in a room as guys looked in your door before deciding. I just remembered I had to bring food to my house and I had to pay bills so there was no choice. But I spent my life working in that room. I missed out on so much.

    Miss Jean;Were you a Biologist in an earlier life? You have much information that appears to be pretty much on track. As far as Homo sapiens is concerned, humans are omnivores with predatory instincts. Unfortunately their prey is often other humans which is a great waste of resources because otherwise, when humans hunt other animals they usually eat them.

    Cierto, me confundí. Lo miré en la página de Renfe y como ya tengo la costumbre de poner Salamanca-Valladolid… ;-)En cualquier caso, el billete de ese AVE Salamanca-Madrid sería muy caro comparado con los 15,85 que cuesta el tren regional, o los 10,90 que cuesta el Auto-Res (servicio normal), y a casi nadie le compensaría utilizar el AVE para ahorrarse poco más de una hora.Pedir un AVE Madrid-Salamanca me parece símplemente una nueva ocurrencia para tratar de demostrar que el gobierno está contra Salamanca.

    Man kan have mange meninger om mange ting, og det er i orden.Min mening om det amerikanske præsidentvalg er at det har temmelig meget konsekvens for verden hvem der sidder ved roret i det land, der vel nok stadig er verdens største supermagt.Obama, som bare er en almindelig konservativ, eller Romney som er ultrareligiøs og ultrakonservativ… SÃ¥ … jo, det interesserer mig. BÃ¥de for min egen og og verdens skyld, og for de mennesker, som jeg holder af i det skruptossede land derovre.So sue me.
