For One Shilling!

"According to Danny there were two prostitutes in San Pedro in those days as well. Strangely enough, they were both Mayas. One lived south of the village and one lived north of the village. They serviced the young men of San Pedro, but occasionally we heard of married men who felt the urge to take a walk north or south of the village after dinner. These women charged a shilling (25 cents) and that was a day’s pay for most men so it was considered expensive."

So, Scubaldy, based on your local knowledge and your observation that some things never change, could you please advise those that might be interested as to where these services are available for the price of 25 shillings.

If have to do the conversion to get today's prices. Personally - I didn't have enough self esteem to charge.

Been available since the beginning of time and will still be here in a 1000 years, where there is a demand it will be filled.

Personally i think it should be legalized as well as legalizing all drugs it works in Portugal so no reason it wont work in other places based on their own success.

Controversial yes but the results of the studies dont lie.
