Peaches (not her real name, nor even her real sobriquet), a former escort now in her mid-20s, says that the busiest days were from Friday to Sunday, when as many as 20 clients might come in each day. So a conservative estimate has around 2,000 men visiting massage parlours, but this figure doesn’t include men who go to brothels (where the price for sex is lower) and assumes it’s the same men throughout the year.
Add to this, another 100-plus women working at the various well-established brothels around the country, and estimating another 100-plus who work on the streets at night-time, and there may be at least 400 full-time prostitutes in the country. That might not seem a large number, until you consider that the age of females in such a profession is necessarily narrow: most would be between 18 and 24 years old. Since there are about 75,000 females in that age range in T&T, this would mean that one in every 190 young women in the country is a sex worker.
Are these women busier during the Carnival season? A survey by Sudhir Venkatesh of Columbia University in New York found that demand for prostitutes rises during the Fourth of July long weekend holiday in the US. “Most interestingly, this surge in demand attracts a special kind of worker—a woman who steers clear of prostitution all year long but, during this busy season, drops her other work and starts turning tricks,” write Levitt and Dubner.
“Summer” (again, not a real name nor sobriquet), a woman in her late 20s who specialises in exotic dancing for bachelor parties and such events, says that business actually drops from January to March. “Men prefer to spend their money to go to a fete,” she says. Her most profitable months are June to August, when there are weddings and other events. “Sex is constant throughout the year,” she says.
Peaches, however, says there is an increase in demand during Carnival. If so, this is not reflected in the classified ads, which show only a slight rise as compared to other months (just 8-10 per cent). Nor are there more ads targeting foreigners, as might be expected if there was more demand for escort services at this time.
Nonetheless, Peaches does identify one holiday period which has the highest demand for the year. “Christmas,” she says.
$2m bail for prostitution charges*

Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar granted the bail bond to 30-year-old Anthony Smith when he appeared before her in the Eighth Magistrates’ Court on 21 charges against the woman on various dates between 2014 and last year at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad hotel in Port of Spain and Cane Farm Road, Arouca.
He is on five charges of inciting the woman into prostitution, 13 charges of having intercourse with her and three additional charges of committing the act of common assault on her.
“ Stunning Hotel but serious prostitute problem! ”
Because the casino entrance is in the reception, they all flock around outside it ( in reception), the pimps were siting in the bar area there are usually about 2 or 3 of them they sit and read a newspaper all night long , we left te bar at 3.00am and they were still there!
If I wrote each item down, it would sound terribly petty — but therein lies much of the problem. It’s just one insult/nuisance/irritation after another at this place and piled on, they just add up in ways you could easily avoid and stay elsewhere. [When you have to say to each other, "We are not going to let them spoil our trip," probably a good sign you’re at the wrong place.]
I won’t even waste more time to write how horrible the staff was once we did get down.
Prostitutes defend woman pastor from sectists.
Scantily dressed ladies of the night made up part of a crowd which defended a female woman pastor from the verbal abuse meted out to her by a group of all-male roadside preachers in Port of Spain.
After reading a story in Newsday on Tuesday, Apostle Dr Shereece Holder who lives in the United States contacted this newspaper yesterday to confirm the earlier story. Holder told Newsday a crowd which included prostitutes and the destitute was moved to protect her from the insults of the preachers who cursed and called her a whore.
Based in New Jersey, Holder who said that in addition to being a pastor, she is also a prison officer and mother of four, added that she is in Trinidad on a mission to bring God’s, “powerful message”, to locals. She said the roadside preachers challenged her to state God’s name on Monday, to which she replied, “Elohim”.
“They began to get irate. They told me a woman is not allowed to watch a man in the eye and speak to him. It became very disrespectful. They began to call me a whore. They said I’m a slim Missie Elliot,” Holder said. The preachers insulter her hair weave. “What onlookers saw was a group of men in robes insulting and bullying a woman,” she said.
“A boy, he could have been about 15, was with them and hearing with the men were telling me, he came and said that I was a slut. I told him, ‘touch not the Lord’s anointed’,” Holder recalled. She said that as the cursing preachers grew angrier and a crowd formed to defend her, she began to pray.
