    Sex tourism and child prostitution in cuba

    SEX TOURISM AND CHILD PROSTITUTION IN CUBA
    Re: Hilton Hotels Worldwide Bans Cuban Guests

    Arch Kielly, LtCol, USAF, Retired

    Communist Cuba is attempting to right its economic problems by permitting the sexual trade of its children for badly needed monetary resources.

    A generation of young people may have been invested to make Cuba’s tourism more appealing to foreign tourists looking for more than beautiful beaches and soft trade breezes.

    Fidel Castro maintains his grip on the Cuban people as long as Cuba is able to produce funds to keep his regime afloat. Take away tourism dollars and Castro may self destruct and free a generation of Cuba’s children from sexual exploitation.

    Tourism is Cuba’s most important moneymaker, generating almost $2 billion last year. In Spain alone, twenty flights leave for Havana every week, carrying to the Caribbean island a yearly total of some 200,000 single male tourists, all in search of cut-price sex. (Tunku Varadarajan, “Time-bomb that Flies in From Havana,” The Times, July 10, 1996. Lexis-Nexis document.)
    The Cuban prostitute is very inexpensive. She is able to sell her body for a pair of shoes, or for one lipstick, or for a medicine for her child, etc, etc. The Revolution supposedly was done to eliminate that kind of profession, but instead, the number of prostitutes that Cuba has right now is 100 times higher that before 1959. The Revolution just brought to Cuba’s society more poverty, more deficits of food, clothing, increased the repression, the abuses, and finally, took and place very far away hope for all people to live with dignity and freedom.

    I object to the characterization "sell her body".
    Prostitutes do not "sell their bodies", per se; they sell a service, much like everybody else.
    Whether the price they charge for this service is steep or affordable is beside the point.

    Why about child prostitution? Do you object to it or “is beside the point” because "they sell a service" too?

    Castro said in 1992 in a speech to the Cuban National Assembly: “There are no women forced to sell themselves to a man, to a foreigner, to a tourist. Those who do so do it on their own, voluntarily, and without any need for it. We can say that they are highly educated hookers and quite healthy, because we are the country with the lowest numbers of AIDS cases… Therefore, there is truly no prostitution healthier that Cuba’s…. “Cuban women become jineteras (prostitutes) because they like sex”. He remarked in 1993 that “thanks to socialism Cuban girls must make the cleanest and best-educated prostitutes in the world.”

    The regime’s tourism minister has launched an international campaign announcing the splendor of the Cubans mulatas, using them as bait, distributing posters of white sand beaches, and Cuban women topless to travel agencies around the world. Sex, of course, is the primary reason that most tourists travel to Cuba. In its report of 2000-2001, the End Child Prostitution, Pornography and Trafficking (ECPAT, UK) reported the existence of child prostitution and traffic of minors in Cuba, and adds that in the country no measures have been taken on the matter.

    But at least they have great health care. That's the best part. After you nail a Cuban whore, you can smack her around and let out your frustrations, and rest assured that she'll get quality treatment.

    For a poor people with a food deficit I have never seen such healthy people as I have in Cuba.
    I would advise against smacking a Cuban prostitute around.
    If she doesnt knock you out her brother in the next room will

    I haven't nailed a chick whose brother was in the other room since high school. Don't they have motels by the hour in Havana?

    No. And many Cuban males enjoy boxing so you would get your ass kicked, and it would be well deserved for an individual as yourself

    If they were any good, they would have defected here by now.

    Moot point anyway. You don't bring boxing gloves to a gunfight.
