In the case of young women, the so-called “sugar daddies” take care of tuition, rent, all expenses and even travel for their “sugar babies” – young women who are often students or in financial difficulty.

Martinique 1 Ere reported that although these internet advertisements are glamorized, they “look” like prostitution.

As a result, organizers of the anti-prostitution campaign say the problem has become difficult to detect and almost commonplace. At the same time, videos and films depict the practice as romantic, classy or even luxurious.

An individual familiar with the Martinique countryside said Saint Lucia Time that job losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic have made women particularly vulnerable to exploitation.

This year, the theme of Martinique’s anti-prostitution campaign comes from a well-known song in which a young woman buys luxury clothes thanks to the generosity of a man.
