No Sex Please, We’re Balinese

Government Worried that Closure or Major Commercial Sex Area in Surabaya, East Java Might Cause Exodus of Sex Workers to Bali

(3/9/2014)

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika told Beritadewata.com that there are an estimated 400 commercial sex workers in Bali infected with the HIV/AIDS virus.

The Governor shared these figures against suggestions that following the closure of the massive commercial sex complex “Gang Dolly” in Surabaya, East Java, the prostitutes will shift their area of enterprise to Bali.

The Governor said the tally of 400 HIV/AIDS infected sex workers was most probably only the tip of the iceberg based on limited health checks carried out by health officials in “locations” known for their “cottage sex industry.”

Added the Governor: “There is a great possibility there are many more commercial sex workers who are positive (for HIV/AIDS) who were not examined by health inspectors or did not want to be examined by a clinic. My recommendation is that everyone avoid (sexual) indulgence outside the home.”

Continuing, Governor Pastika said he estimates there are more than 1,000 commercial sex workers operating in Bali spread across specific “locations” were these worker ply their ancient trade. At the same time, Pastika said the 1,000 figure is probablu a low estimate, as there are many more “locations” not visited by officials.

While specific places where prostitution practices are not formally permitted by Bali's government, those living in areas where prostitution is rife are, somewhat ironically reminded by the government, still subject to the law.

Certain areas of Sanur, only hundreds of meters from the doors of five-star hotels, are heavily populated by private homes operating as bordellos.

Pastika told the press that Bali would not allow the notorious “Gang Dolly” to reopen in Bali nor would permits be issued to such operations. “Those rejecting and opposing such development would not only be from the government, but from all the people of Bali,” warned Pastika.

The governor said that to date commercial sex areas in operation in Bali have no link to the “Gang Dolly” operation in Surabaya. Nonethless, the Governor wants officials to be on guard to ensure that the closure of “Gang Dolly” in Surabaya doe not bring negative impacts to Bali.
