The Price of Sex around the World Mapped from $ 10 to $ 10,000 a day
The Prostitution business makes US$186 billion per year. According to Economist, In 2006, the cost for one hour of sex with a female sex worker averaged $340 worldwide. Nowadays, the average rate is down to $260. But how does this billion-dollar industry trickle down to the workers who make it possible?
To find out, the Havocscope team analyzed thousands of profiles of female sex workers on 200 websites, covering 55 countries, from escort directories to agencies and some of the most recognized international sites.
The prices obtained for the visualization aren’t “the standard,” rather the approximate average of prices published in 2019 by the many escorts on the web.
It’s worth mentioning that we are not talking about prostitution in general but independent escorts or legally authorized agencies. These are not prices that you can find in the streets late at night or in the famous red-light districts, so they are much higher than one would think.
To make the task easier, all costs are converted to U.S. dollars and reflect only the costs for 1 hour of service, without including transportation costs or extra services.
