The World Economic Forum annual summit in Davos is reportedly fuelling a surge in prostitution as the demand for sexual services spikes at the Swiss resort town.
The global elites, lecturing us about gender inequality and climate change, jetted in from all over the world on private jets and are now apparently fuelling the sex trade.
According to a report from The Daily Mail, high-class escorts are booked into the same hotels as high-powered bosses and their employees.
One sex worker, named Liana, said she dresses in business attire to blend in among executives.
Liana told Bild she regularly sees an American attendee who visits Switzerland multiple times a year.
Liana charges around €700 ($760) for an hour and €2,300 ($2,500) for the whole night, plus travel expenses.
According to a manager of one escort service located 100 miles from the summit in Aargau, they have received 11 bookings and 25 inquiries already this week.
“Some also book escorts for themselves and their employees to party in the hotel suite,” she told 20 Minuten.
Another sex worker, Salome Balthus, posted on Twitter: “Date in Switzerland during #WWF means looking at the gun muzzles of security guards in the hotel corridor at 2 a.m. – and then sharing the giveaway chocolates from the restaurant with them and gossiping about the rich… #Davos #WEF.”
The 36-year-old, who is staying at a hotel near Davos, refused to reveal who the influential clients are.
“Believe me, you don’t want to get into litigation with them,” she said.
An investigation by The Times in 2020 found at least 100 prostitutes travel to Davos every year for the event, according to a Swiss police officer.
Over 1,000 private-jet flights arrived and departed airports serving Davos in May.
Forum president Borge Brende acknowledged on Sunday that some government leaders and chief executives fly that way.
“I think what is more important than that is to make sure we have agreements on how we, overall, move and push the envelope when it comes to the green agenda,” he said.
