In Summary

  • Just like other years, sex workers are heading to Davos during the five-day World Economic Forum annual meeting.

    • The annual conference brings together business tycoons, government heads and leaders from civil society to address myriad issues such as climate change, the cost of living crisis, and food insecurity, among others.

    Demand for the world's oldest profession is expected to skyrocket in the Swiss Alpine town of Davos as the Global elite tackling worlds greatest's problems meet at the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos.

    The forum will see business tycoons and world leaders come together to address the state of the world and discuss priorities for the year ahead.

    Irrespective of the high class the event is regarded, reports indicate thatthe event also sees sex workers booked into the same hotels as high-powered bosses.

    Liana, one of the sex workers who serves an American businessman, has revealed that she charges around €700 ($760) for an hour and €2,300 ($2,500) for the whole night, plus travel expenses.

    The manager of one escort service in Aargau further says that she has already received 11 bookings and 25 inquiries and expects many more to follow this week.

    "Some also book escorts for themselves and their employees to party in the hotel suite," Liana told Bild.

    Salomé Balthus, another sex worker from Germany, who is staying at a hotel near Davos, took to Twitter to share her experience.

    “Date in Switzerland during [World Economic Forum] means looking at the gun muzzles of security guards in the hotel corridor at 2 am – and then sharing the giveaway chocolates from the restaurant with them and gossip about the rich,” she said.

    In 2020, an investigation by The Times found at least 100 prostitutes travel to Davos for the summit according to a Swiss police officer.
