Cannes Offers Target-Rich Environment for Prostitution
The annual Cannes Film Festival offers a cavalcade of film exclusives, celebrity sightings and amenities that would make an Occupy Wall Street type rush to grab cardboard and magic markers.
It's also a mini-Mecca for prostitution.
Fox News reports prostitutes can earn up to $40,000 a night during the film festival, citing an expose in The Hollywood Reporter.
Many of the "Johns" requesting the services hail from the Middle East, which would appear to clash with Sharia Law to state the obvious.
Arabs are the most generous people in the world… At Cannes, they carry money around in wads of 10,000 euros. They don’t even like to count it.”
Prostitutes told the magazine that lots of deals indeed go down in parks and hotel lobbies, where men use hand signals to negotiate prices and communicate their room number....Men, mostly from the Middle East, then gave “gifts” of thousands and thousands of euros to have sex with them.
