Spanish Police Break Up Male Prostitution/Human Trafficking Ring In Brazil

Spanish police have for the first time broken up a human-trafficking gang that brought men to the country to work as male prostitutes, providing them with Viagra, cocaine and other stimulant drugs to be available for sex 24 hours a day.

14 people, mainly Brazilians, were arrested on suspicion of running the organization and another 17 alleged male prostitutes for being in Spain illegally. A police official said he did not know if the male prostitutes serviced men or women (My guess is male))

The men were recruited in Brazil and saddled with debts of up to euro4,000 ($5,000) as the cost of bringing them to Spain. Some were duped into thinking legitimate jobs awaited them; others knew they would be working in the sex industry, but not that they had to be available for sex around the clock and would be moved from one province to another.
