Prostitution, in my home town, I am SHOCKED!

The story says it all. A true-to-life brothel in the very town I grew up near. (I had an Austin, Minnesota address and attended its schools so I claim this weird rural city as my hometown.)

Sure, some wouldn't even bat an eye at hearing that their city contained a brothel. Some would ask directions and its hours of operations. This is one that even the biggest sexual deviants would tend to shy away from. It's hard to believe that the unassuming little house in an area that was instantly recognizable to me was frequented my hundreds of mostly illegal immigrants as they took part in "relations" with females of the same persuasion.

It's even harder to believe that many that attended the shindig I was at on Saturday hadn't heard of this. The few that had all had remembered the most disturbing tidbit from the story.

"Two women had "serviced" nearly 80 men in one evening"

It's not a direct quote but through the mix of beer and Goldschlager it pretty much sums it up. I feel sorry for the women but they knew what they were doing as they were shuttled around the state and the stupid guys who wanted to willingly dip their wicks in something forty other dudes had "explored" earlier in the evening... I can't even find words to describe that.

The truth is that every place has prosititution in some form whether it is pimps and hoes, brothers, escort services. it is everywhere. Oldest profession.

Did the brothel in Austin involve the use of Spam, its most valued commodity?

"I feel sorry for the women but they knew what they were doing ..."

How do you come to this conclusion, when the story says most of the women working at the brothel were forced to be there?

Question: How do you know it was mostly illegal immigrants getting "serviced," or did I read this wrong?

I dug up this tidbit...

"The brothels were allegedly advertised through business cards written in Spanish."

Draw your own conclusion.

As for the fact that they were forced to work there, the women have free will even if they were being forced to do something. With the relative lack of information about this story, it's hard to say in waht way that the women were being forced to work there. I see no mention of weapons or other means of control but I would assume that pure fear was the most likely tool of motivation keeping the women indentured.

I'm almost certain that some of the "clients" may have been (dare I say it) upstanding citizens....

I will agree that anything is possible, especially in Austin where those who talk big are sometimes the biggest offenders as well.
