Sex workers in Accra increase charges over economic hardship


Sex workers popularly known as Ashawo in the Country’s capital  have increased their charges due to the economic hardship in the country currently.

Some of them explained to  JoyNews that the cost of almost everything has gone high due to the economic hardship , so they have been left with no option but to increase their charges.

Myjoyonline.com reports one of the sex workers identified simply as Vivian as having lamented how the bad economic situation is having a negative impact on the income they get from their work.

“There has been an increase in goods lately. To pay my rent is difficult now and because of that, I have increased my price.

“Food these days is very expensive. I clothe myself, and the rest of that. So, I can’t reduce my price,” she said as quoted by the news website.

She pleaded with the government to find a means to remedy the situation to enable their work to flourish, adding that she “was taking ¢200 for short” in December last year, but 2022 has been bad due to the economic challenges.

“Things have become very difficult for us, so they should reduce some of the goods. Even the ones that are on the street and company workers.”

According to the report, many of sex workers say they had been charging ¢50 for a short session that lasts between 15-20 minutes and as much as ¢300 for a full night.

“Some people don’t cum quick. If you know you don’t release early you have to give her more money. You have to pay the girl well to make her happy.

Some of the notable areas in Accra where sex workers ply their trade are Lapaz, Cantonments, Osu, and East Legon.

Prostitution is illegal in Ghana, but the law that prohibits it is one of the most flouted as the trade keeps booming and getting more patronage. Once in a while, the police round some of the practitioners up, but they are mostly left off the hook eventually.
