Sex In Baghdad

Prostitution and war often go together. In Iraq, the long - now apparently permanent - occupation has made the desperation of women, especially young widows, particularly acute. The Cunning Realist has done some digging and reports on the

"International Sex Guide." It features reports from men who have visited prostitutes in various countries. Yes, there's an "Iraq" section.

Here are three postings he discovered.

Damn the IED's, anal sex with Persian girls makes it worth it.

Well done Dirk. If she's good-looking and speaks English, you've found a keeper. As one of many young widows in Iraq, she's doing this out of necessity and not for a lifestyle, so you know what she wants (the "R" word). Could be a good two-way thing. Also, Iraqi women are usually pretty hot when they're young. Keep us posted.

Outside the IZ you can get a girl for the evening for $25 you can also be unceremoniously beheaded for free. Many Iraqi women are gorgeous, and, since there is nothing that really resembles a functional economy, some of them are up for screwing to support themselves and their five kids. I ended up getting some girls from an Iraqi security contactor. Some business people who live outside of the wire have gotten contacts from the hotel staff where they reside. That being said, Ali Babba is the word of the day and most people are simply blowing smoke when they say they can get you a girlespecially within the IZ. I was EXTREAMLY stupid, LUCKY, and DRUNK one nite when I took a taxi around downtown Baghdad looking for women. I met a pimp and he took me to a house where I banged 3 girls for 60 bucks until I heard morning prayers.

Ah, war in an Islamic country.
