About Me

I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Women Flock to Senegal for Sex

Female sex tourism in Senegal attracts women who will pay for romance with Senegal’s young men.

Women — often white, European and “of a certain age” — flock solo to Senegal’s shores year-round for what one hotel manager called “the three ‘S’s: sun, sea and sex.”

The growth of Senegal’s female sex tourism has its roots in poverty and the lack of jobs for the country’s young men. Senegal’s unemployment for youths is estimated at 30 percent, according to the International Labor Organization, and the average person in Senegal earns about $3 a day, according to the World Bank.

“It’s a question of survival. Life is hard. If I didn’t have these women, I’d be struggling,” said Moussa, a 31-year-old dreadlocked drum player who has been “dating” female tourists since 2003. Read more

Why Would a Woman Pay for Sex?

Women, like men, are paying for sex. Monica Shores explains why.

Just because it’s not talked about doesn’t mean it’s not happening: Women, like men, are paying for sex. Recent years ushered in the prominence of feminist sex shops and sex worker rights activism, causing women across the country to think about the sex industry in new ways.

Armed with expendable income and encouragement to claim their right to sexual pleasure, women could become consumers in a field previously reserved for men. However, the notion of a female client is not entirely new. Circa 1980s American Gigolo paved the way for the 2009 HBO series Hung, and Xaviera Hollander’s bestselling memoir of the ’70s, The Happy Hooker, describes several women who were regulars of her call girl agency.

America’s First Legal Male Prostitute Likens Himself to Rosa Parks

I’ve never paid for sex myself, but paying for it should certainly be legal. Most, if not all, of the problems associated with illegal prostitution don’t exist when prostitution is legal – and I don’t mean just allowed by corrupt cops and government officials – but legal.

Ladies–say hello to Markus, America’s first legal male prostitute. Markus is the newest hire at the Shady Lady Ranch brothel in Tonopah Nevada, a business that recently got the go-ahead to hire a few good men. However, as Markus told Details magazine, he’d really prefer it if you’d call him a gigolo:

I think for a male, if you want to be successful in this type of venture, you’re not a prostitute. You’re a surrogate lover.
He likened his decision to rise up and become a gigolo to the civil rights struggles of the ’60s. Read more
