THERE are between 300,000 and 400,000 prostitutes in Spain and, thanks to the crisis, from all walks of life.Housewives, graduates, waitresses, office workers and students are turning to prostitution to make ends meet. It is a solution increasingly sought by university students faced with cuts in grants and higher registration fees.“For some time now young girls have been approaching us for information,” Concha Borrel, president of the Sex Workers’ Association, told a 20 minutos interviewer. “We now have between 20 and 30 students on our books,” she said. “A few years back there were perhaps two or three.”Sofia, a student whose father lost his job and can no longer pay her rent in Madrid, is one example. She earns €3,000 a month with three or four “services” a week although her family believes she works in an exclusive discotheque. Once she graduates and finds work, she can forget it ever happened, she said.
