mallgirls_05Mall Girls: teens who sell sex in Poland, and their sponsors (Galerianki)

Japan’s enjo kosai are the most famous teenagers who have sex with older men in order to buy stylish goods, but research reveals this relationship around the world. What seems to signal a loss of morals (for many commentators) is that the teenagers in question are not ‘poor’, since poverty is seen to ’excuse’ selling sex. See recent ideas about the desire to keep whore stigma away from women engaging in transactional sex. [..]

Katarzyna Roslaniec shot Mall Girls at a shopping center in central Poland, where four teenage girls turn tricks with men they call sponsors. ’Look at a guy’s shoes, his watch and his phone and you can tell if it’s expensive. It’s a start, right?’ Sex is exchanged for products like blouses, not for cash, and is provided in mall toilets or cars in the parking lot (Poland Looks Inward).

Fourteen-year-old Alicja enters a new middle-school class. She is a wise and prudent girl who finds herself up against a group of arrogant classmates decked out in the latest fashions and accessories. In the beginning these girls make her life impossible, snubbing her and sneering at her. Alicja later finds out how they manage to have such luxuries and be so trendy: after school, in fact, they frequent malls where customers choose and buy the glittering objects in the showcases and where they can meet young men who “sponsor them”. Alicja thus begins to sell herself in exchange for a new mobile phone…MALL GIRLS (Galerianki)

 

Human-Stupidity analysis

  • We hesitate a little to publish this. Information about underage prostitution will get feminists another goal to rally against.  These transactions seem legal in Poland.  Of course feminists will find ways to promote more government surveillance and heavy penalties to prohibit such consensual agreements. Consent, rape & minors. What is consent to sex? * Feminist arguments against prostitution debunked
  • Underage adolescents who actively offer sex in exchange for luxury items. Not the downtrodden impoverished hungry girl forced to prostitute herself by hunger, nor by a greedy pimp. Impossible according to feminist theory.  Oh yes, it happens in Japan, too.
  • The antifeminist mentions how feminists hate a free sex market
  • The teens were not happy about their sex with ‘sponsors’.  But Alla screwed up sex with the inexperienced school boy crush just as well. Inexperience about how to have satisfying sexual relations is a problem. Lack of advice by experienced older sex positive  people.
  • Those worried about Teenage morals and health could offer VOLUNTARY counseling for the teens. Treat citizens of all ages with respect instead of using police state methods of repression. Should police really substitute parental surveillance?
  • Those who think this is immoral and not good adolescent behavior are probably right. But the solution in most countries is that government imprisons men for decades for something parental education  should take care of.
  • Smart phones and designer clothes should not be so important for teenagers. Something should fill the void in these shallow teens. But we object to the modern feminist moralist solution to use legal police and court terror to prevent teenagers from finding sponsors to fulfill their fashion desires?
  • Paid sex happening in shopping center toilets? Sex with the school crush in a stinking ruin? Full legality, privacy, non-shaming sex positive environment could provide better,safer, more hygienic conditions.
  • Discussion about prostitution rarely deals with the frustration of men who can not get sex. Men who can not get the satisfaction and inner strength gained from easily accessible sex. Even nerds and losers feel the pain of, well, being despised losers. In our modern discussion nobody cares about frustration of men and boys.
  • Yes, there is another movie "Piggies" about adolescent boys that have sex for money. But the moral panic is always about girls, not about men.
