Those seeking to change life are looking for a passport as well as a lifelong income.
No way Hussein, I said, they look much younger than that.
They took up position in the space created by our semicircular table.
There were curtains you could pull across the doorway.He looked to be in his fifties, plump, bald on imaginary friends in young adults top and with long, wispy brown hair hanging from the sides.You recognize the fact that they are prostitutes by the way they dress and they look at potential clients.Hussein was already through the door, leaving us to pay the fee.As our eyes grew accustomed to the light we could make out a man sitting on an adjoining sofa.Dawn was just breaking and at a nearby mosque a man sang across the rooftops, beckoning the faithful to early morning prayers.Hussein did a disapearing act.The majority (54) revealed they had not used a condom in the 30 days before they were interviewed for the survey, either because they weren't carrying one or because their client did not want to use.In the center there was a fountain and small tree, while around the walls were low tables and sofas.Hussein hissed in my ear: I can get you anything, girls, drugs, alcohol, camels.Madame brought over the bill.We went back into the main room and sat on a sofa.We guessed who would have to pay for the taxi.Most of them were love songs.We were soon chatting away.
Hussein would have none of it: Mustapha, Achmed, I know a special club, used only by Arabs, the girls are very cheap.
We had to move carefully in the gloom, feeling our way along.In 98 of cases, prostitutes have sex wherever their client takes them, either in rented apartments or a riad rented exclusively.We were the only westerners in the club.The schoolgirl pressed her body against mine.He gave a nudge and a wink straight out of a Carry On film.Hussein gestured towards the girl.The food was very good.

In the ancient Jewish district Mellah, women offering sex are older and tariffs go down to 20 Dirham, or 2 euros for sex just two steps from the souk.
Then it was over.
