A BBC-Arabic reporter videoed a conversation between himself and a Jordanian prostitute. The video is in Arabic. I tried to write the script of this conversation and translate it. The English translation is not funny as it is in the Jordanian slang. This type of conversation and business transaction is something new to me. [Article and video in Arabic]
W: So, do you want to go?
M: How much is sleeping over or what is your system?
W: Two hours for 25. There is a Syrian and a … (Inaudible)
M: Two hours for 25 dinars? How much are you?
W: All are the same
M: Where are you from? What’s your name?
W: Amal. From here
M: Is the house safe?
W: Yes man I have the key … (Inaudible). So?
M: How about 20?
W: No problem, but you have to compensate … (Inaudible)
M: I will
W: No problem now … (Inaudible)

The conversation itself is funny but the fact that some women sell their bodies as a way of living is disgusting. Prostitution is one of the oldest jobs on earth and it seems it will stay for many years to come. As long as their is a demand from men their will always be a supply. Supporters of of moral decay educated us via movies, newspapers articles, and novels that men like prostitutes because they do things their wives don’t do on bed or because they are embarrassed to ask the mother of their kids to do thing in a different way. As if they are trying to find an excuse for their immorality. But in reality, men who pay for sex are simply low. Not to make men the pure evil on earth, there are female prostitutes who are not forced into this business but they are in it for the love of extra money.
