Prostitution is one of the oldest trades known to mankind, dating back to the existence of civilization. Women and, with the advancement of years, men, have lined dimly lit street corners, luring clients for centuries. And now in the current digital era, prostitutes around the world, Kenya included, are moving the trade to a new frontier – the internet.
Commercial sex work, although illegal, is a rampant daily occurrence in Nairobi.
“Approximately 7,000 sex workers operate in Nairobi per night, with each having an average of 3-4 clients, which translates to between 21,000 and 28,000 sexual activities a night,” a report said.
City authorities ruled out legalization of prostitution despite demands by sex workers that they be recognized. Some of the registered licensed massage parlous are actually operating as sex dens and brothels with both owners and patrons aware of the same, hence increasing the popularity of sex work in Kenya.
Kenya’s government has been severely criticized because of its lack of response to the booming sex tourism and child exploitation especially on the Kenyan coast. This booming trade in sex tourism goes on with the Kenyan Tourism Police’s full knowledge.
They do not want to discourage the hundreds of thousands of white tourists from coming to Kenya’s coast, regardless of the damage it does to young Kenyans. Moreover, it’s no secret that most of our leaders are regular clients in these sex dens.
Kenya has in fact been ranked as the 7th most popular destination for sex tourism, WORLDWIDE. To date, no single website has been blocked by the government and the rate at which they are growing is alarming.
These days, prostitution is very much an online enterprise. The Kenyan blogosphere has just recently been graced by not your usual blogger and not your usual genre: Digital prostitution.
Global adult content has been growing by the day, and Kenya has jumped on the bandwagon. Escorts advertise on personal websites and email with clients before meeting up. All of this, according to them has made the black market safer and somewhat more lucrative compared with the days when they could mostly walk the streets looking to pick up men.
A number of sites have a section where clients can leave reviews for escorts. The following is a list of links to the most famous websites which prostitutes are currently using to market their trade in Nairobi.
More ads are also found on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
