  1. 1. WHY MEN RAPE.


    “I am a bad person now. I have done horrible things with all these people. I am worth nothing. I am what she said I am”. In a few short words, the tale of a human psyche destroyed in detail… Natasha had her dead-eyed expression reassembled for the day ahead. The veterinary student from Stavropol was gone again.

    That, at least most of the time, is how a normal woman becomes a prostitute. The prostitute with whom our friends and brothers have their adventures. The subject of the knowing glances, the winks, the laughter as we sit together over coffee at some later date. And that’s why I don’t think it’s so funny.

    … apart from the health issues, and the victims of prostitution directly, I think there is another issue worth mentioning. How does having sex with numerous different women for money, affect a man’s general view of women? There is another sad thing, I believe, about the prostitution culture among khaleeji men. Any woman who he gets his hands on outside of marriage, can immediately be given the same status as those exploited sex workers. A “whore is a whore”. Someone even asked me about an Omani businesswoman I know recently: “Oh, Z? She’s a prostitute right?” He actually used that word in English. What he meant was that he’d heard she had a boyfriend. She was in some kind of relationship with a man, and he drew no distinction between her, his co-religionist and compatriot, and a sex worker. What’s more, it was clear what he meant by the analogy – it was two things: on one level “what a low, worthless woman”, and on another level “do you think I can get a turn?”. Such is the common duplicity of male culture around here.”
