PROSTITUTES

Dubai’s Night Secrets, a 14-minute investigative documentary, is a must-watch.

It is a revelation of “the Las Vegas of the Middle East” and a city famous for the world’s tallest building, the world’s first seven star hotel, the world’s biggest shopping mall, and the world’s largest man-made port.

Emerging as a world business hub in the last decade, the city strives to keep breaking new records: the world’s tallest building, the world’s first seven star hotel, the world’s biggest shopping mall, the world’s largest manmade port. Dubai’s free trade zone is a major enticement for foreign investors, and the boomtown atmosphere has attracted more than 180 nationalities to come live and work here.

In United Arab Emirates, prostitution is illegal and under Islamic law, selling sex is haram (forbidden), yet it has virtually become a national pastime in Dubai with authorities rarely doing anything about it. Couples who publicly kiss are jailed, yet the state turns a blind eye to 30,000 prostitutes imported every year to keep the expats and nationals happy, and business flourishing in Dubai.

Men outnumber women 3 to 1 in Dubai, and the variety of places to purchase sex is abundant – from the brothels where women are being sold and resold and the back alleys where migrant workers pay for a few minutes of pleasure, to the mainstream Westernized nightclubs, often inside upscale hotels, where women from all over the world congregate according to their nationalities awaiting the next client. Some women serve up to 30 clients per day in what is a sex hungry city under a facade of Islam and conservative traditions.
