WOULD YOU PROSTITUTE YOURSELF TO FEED YOUR CHILDREN IF THERE WAS NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE?

THIS IS AN ONGOING DISCUSSION I HAVE WITH HUBBY. I AM CUBAN BORN, NOW I LEFT THE ISLAND VERY YOUNG AND HAVE NOT LIVED THERE IN OVER 50 YEARS, BUT THE SITUATION THERE IS DEPLORABLE. PEOPLE DO NOT WORK BECAUSE IF THEY DO THEY DON'T GET PAID ENOUGH TO EAT, SO WOMEN GO OUT AND SELL THEMSELVES TO TOURIST IN ORDER TO FEED THEIR CHILDREN AND EAT. I TELL HUBBY IF NEEDED BE I WOULD HAVE PROBABLY DONE THE SAME FOR MY CHILDREN'S SAKE AND HE GETS UPSET AT ME, WHAT WOULD YOU DO??IF YOUR ONLY ALTERNATIVE WAS BECOMING A PROSTITUTE SO YOUR KIDS COULD AT LEAST EAT AND SURVIVE.

  • If that was the ONLY ONLY ONLY alternative then yes. But ONLY if I couldnt get assistance or at least be a dancer or something. It would have to be the only way I would be able to provide for my family, and I know I would look everywhere else before

  • If there was NOTHING else I could do, then yes I would. But I would look for anything else first.

  • ANON, STRIPPING OR ANY OTHER JOB IN CUBA DOES NOT PAY ENOUGH FOR ANYTHING, SALARIES RANGE FROM 5 TO 10 DOLLARS A MONTH IN ANY JOB. LIFE IN CUBA IS PURE HELL, THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN FIND FOOD IS IF YOU OWN DOLLARS AND IF THEY ARE LUCKY TO FIND SOMETHING TO EAT, IT COSTS AND ARM AND A LEG IN DOLLARS.

  • When I was married I felt like I was doing exactly that, prostituting myself to my husband for the sake of the children and their welfare. So I divorced him to regain my dignity. Funny how it's not really called prostitution when you are married to the person but it still felt like it was just that.

  • We have also had this conversation and yes if it was the ONLY option to feed my child I would be a prostitute.

  • My kids come first. I would do whatever it took to make sure they were feed and clothed.

  • If it was 100 percent the ONLY option, I would do it. I would hate my self for it, but would do it.

    Thankfully, in this country, that is generally not the only option available...
