    Default Prostitutes

    Hi again.

    We were planning on sleeping a night in Samana Town so that we can be up early to take the 9am Whale watching trip.

    I noticed when I was in Sosua, there was an overwhelming amount of prostitutes and their patrons. I can imagine that Samana might be much the same...and I don't want to really be around that (while I don't condemn it.)

    Any info?

    I spent an afternoon in Samana once, and dont remember seeing any prostitutes at all.

    Maybe it was their day off, but I got the impression it was nothing like Sosua.

    i can't understand either the obsession with this subject. are you afraid you might partake and heaven forbid that ?

    wear a "i'm a poor dumb gringo" sign and they'll be sure to leave you alone...geesh !!

    I dont know what these guys are worried about, but in my case if a prostitute were to cross my line of vision and or I were to look in her general direction for more than a split second my Dominican wife would punch me in the head.

    So for me its healthy not to have any in the general vicinity.

    Default Where is the real "problem" or danger.

    As far as I'm concerned here is a bigger problem if you are worried about prostitutes. See below in article from the DR1.

    The women need to feed their families and will never bother a husband and wife walking together in Sosua or Samana. A simple shake of a finger will suffice even if you are alone.

    This is off DR1 web site. In case anyone wants to know where all those Dominican men learn to speak English. ******US returns 64 felons****** The United States returned 64 convicted criminals to the Dominican Republic after having served their jail sentences. The Listin Diario reported that the 64 were residents of New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Brooklyn and New Jersey. They had all been convicted of felonies and their return brings the total number of such cases to 3,165 so far this year (October 2003).

    The sexual culture here is open and above board with no hidden agendas so you need to embrace it and if you want to ignore the obvious then do so. If you are so inclined you can avail yourself of the sexual pleasures available or you can go your merry way without partaking.

    Default why not answer the question?

    Hi:

    Not sure why posters feel the need to project their personal opinion on a subject instead of providing an answer, but: My three visits to Samana provided the impression that it (Samana) is nothing like Sosua, not full of night clubs and or working girls or clients needed for them to exist

    Samana is a very small "nature" oriented town where Sosua caters to the Ex Pats with a plethora of bars, nightclubs, discos and all that goes with it

    From what I experienced in Samana you would have to ask a local to find a "paid escort" should you so desire, I doubt you will be bothered or even notice any working girls

    Agreed. To answer the OP's question, Sosua is in a league all it's own. There in nowhere in the DR quite like Sosua.

    You may notice an occasional female that will give you the impression she may be working, but other than that, you won't see squat.

    Now I am under the impression that the member of the forum Squat lives in the Samana area – so – whilst its unlikely that you will see Squat in Sosua, you may see him in Samana!

    ( Im so funny this morning! )
