"There are more men with money and more women looking for this type of work." She said many men were meeting new partners abroad, on stag nights for example, and the internet and cheaper international travel meant people had more opportunities to buy and sell sex."It does not seem to be exceptional for groups of men to go away with each other for the weekend and have commercial sex.
