This morning, an excellent TVR customer contacted me a little disturbed by this message he received via WhatsApp. It’s intentionally that I did not hide the phone number because I believe that this kind of practice should not be protected but rather exposed to all of us.
For those who do not understand German, I summarize briefly. This message is a threat. The person is presenting himself as a member of the mafia and wants money from the client. In return, he promises to leave him alone. If he refuses, he threatens to contact his family. I reassured our client by telling him that this type of message does not surprise me and does not scare me either. It’s intimidation. I advice him to ignore it and block the sender.
Indeed, these are the indirect consequences linked to the restrictive measures of the Covid … The sex industry is of course not spared and is certainly one of the sectors most seriously affected by this crisis which began in 2020 and which is not about to end.
More than 8 out of 10 girls have a Pimp. More than 7 out of 10 girls who work in Switzerland come from eastern countries. These men have got their hands on these girls who must bring them money. But since the Clubs, Studios and Champagne Bar are facing an unprecedented crisis, the incomes of these men have of course fallen and that does not help their business. So they have to find other ways to get money….
Very often, they have a foreign number but from a country in the European Union (Spanish, French, Dutch…), a country where it is easier to obtain a telephone number anonymously and a country which inspires more confidence than numbers of some other countries whose names I will not mention.
Dear Gentlemen, when you contact a girl, you think that because she answers her phone herself that she is really independent … You are wrong. In the 5 years that I have been managing TVR, I have been faced with multiple situations which have proved the contrary. What I’m going to tell you will certainly shock you, but in reality in Switzerland most working girls who have a pimp are working :
* In Clubs / Bar (these places get all these girls thanks to Pimps networks. This is also why all the girls you will meet in such places are coming from the same countries…)
* On the street (a girl does land in the street on her own. She may end up staying there by choice but in the vast majority of cases, a pimp has put her there)
* In a room / apartment that she rents by the week (many of you are very naive. Just because a girl answers the phone herself does not mean that she is free and does this job on her own will. Pimps also prefer girls who work alone in their room / apartment because they have more control over the girl, over her schedule, over her actions. Some even invite themselves into their room / apartment when they want, whether she agrees or not, call / WhatsApp them 20 times a day to find out how much money they have made …). Sometimes while you’re with her he’s hidden in the next room. He controls, hears everything and imposes his presence without you even noticing it.
A girl who answers the phone by herself, a girl who only answers by text (usually a man / pimp who takes the appointments for her) does not mean that she does this job freely. And from these guys who are only interested in money, these girls have a lot of pressure and feel obligated to do everything (very low prices, sex without a condom, no regard for hygiene …) to bring back a little bit of money for fear of being hit, threatened or even raped.
Escort Agencies and Erotic Studios are less popular with these Pimps because they have usually less control over their victims. Against all odds, you will find a lot of girls working in Agency and Erotic Studios who are really there of their own will.
As for independent girls, you should be very careful because despite appearances, many are in fact not as independent as they claim…
Anyway, here are my few tips for you Gentlemen living in Switzerland and who visit Escort Girls regularly:
* Never contact an Escort with your personal number. Me for 5 years now, I have been been using three phones which I permanently have with me. I have no other choice to preserve my privacy.
* Prefer a girl who receives you in private, whom you already know or who works in an Agency / Erotic Studio which inspires you confidence.
* Do not contact an Escort who does not have a Swiss number or who only takes appointments by text / WhatsApp. This is generally not a good sign.
* Avoid certain nationalities. Sad to say but unfortunately the number of exploited girls from some specific countries is extremely high. They are beautiful, young, often do not speak / very little English / German and seem to be happy to be there by your side but in fact they are in pain, sad and afraid.
* Don’t go too personal with an Escort, even if you feel good in her company. Have fun and keep it friendly but remember that’s a business, after all.
At TVR, I go to great lengths and make sure to manage this agency with a lot of ethics and respect for girls, even if financially, it is not always profitable because for me, a good reputation is something invaluable. Over the years, many girls have taken advantage of my kindness/generosity, but many others have appreciated it (thanks God!). Some clients sometimes don’t endorse my decisions because they don’t understand how this industry really works. They only see the tip of the Iceberg.
You don’t care? If you want to contribute indirectly to Human Trafficking, that’s your problem and that of your conscience. As long as the TVR Agency will exist, I will make sure that it only represents girls who are here because they want to be here.
Some will tell me that TVR doesn’t have the prettiest girls compared to other places. What do I answer to that? Beauty is very subjective. On the other hand, at TVR, the level of service, the hygiene and the ethic of work are very high compared to what you will find elsewhere. Why? Because at TVR, we truly care. As simple as this.
