Bali News: Baliís Booming Sex Industry

(11/4/2013)

Figures provided by the secretary of the Commission for the Control of AIDS (KPA), Made Suprapta, and published by The Bali Post estimate there are 125,000 customers of commercial sex workers in Bali and that most of these “customers” are Balinese.

KPA counts between 8,000 – 9,000 commercial sex workers as being “on the job” in Bali.

Of concern to those observing developments in Bali’s sex trade is the shift from new HIV/AIDS infections from intravenous drug users to infections link to sexual contact.

The number of HIV cases in Bali as of August 2013 numbers 8,141 victims with the total number of infections, both known and undiscovered, put at a figure nearer to 25,000.

While KPA has been successful in raising awareness on the need for safe sex practice in Bali among workers in the sex industry, there remains strong resistance to the use of condoms by those who patronize prostitutes.

This resistance to use condoms on the part of Balinese customers of prostitutes is also blamed for alarming rate of new HIV infections among wives and children within the larger Balinese community.
