Seamen ahoy - Darwin women can't keep up as US Navy officers arrive
Northern Territory News ^ | 29th June 2010 | Alyssa Betts

Posted on 06/29/2010 6:46:24 PM PDT by naturalman1975

DARWIN'S prostitutes and local ladies have been busy trying to keep pace with the swell of cute, horny US seamen on our shores.

But they must be more than capable because at least one chemist is reporting low condom stocks and a number of Navy blokes asking about Viagra.

USS Peleliu and USS Pearl Harbor have docked at Fort Hill Wharf and unleashed hundreds of young, well-cut and hot-to-trot sailors.

Ship rules mean no sex on board - beyond what's on offer in a magazine. Michelle Love, who operates Blondies in Darwin, said her 30 girls had been kept busy servicing the Yankees. But she said the increase in US clients had been offset by a temporary slide of local customers - suspected of either being jealous or considerate.

"Most of the local boys don't even call when the boats are in town. They probably think the girls are busy and worn out or they may get their noses out of joint," she said.

Ms Love said the US boys were never any problems - "they treat the girls like gold".

She said the only possible issue was competition from the amateurs.

"Every horny woman comes out of the woodwork," she said. "But there's enough to go around."

Taxi drivers are also enjoying a business boom. They've reported dropping off lusty groups at hotels who use rooms for short periods.

A Darwin driver delivered two ladies for a rendezvous with Navy sorts yesterday.

"One told me, 'Oh honey, I might call you later to pick me up again - I got a couple of jobs'," the driver said. "She said she can make up to $4000 a day because she's so busy."

A chemist assistant in Darwin's CBD reported a spike in condom sales yesterday.

Somewhere at Treasury, someone is working up a proposal that if we bring all the boys home for liberty, we’ll boost the economy big time. Talk about a stimulus!

With the typical journalists level of knowledge of the military, they’re lucky she’s not talking about soldiers in boats.

“Ms Love said the US boys were never any problems - “they treat the girls like gold”.”

It’s not that the Yanks treat the Aussie hookers so well. It’s that they treat them so much better than the Aussie men do.

In Australia, women have their uses, but an Aussie male would much rather head down to the pub for a pint a “punchup” with his mates, than hang around women.

American men are the only water in that emotional desert.

Charming.

At 1st I thought this was a story on how US “seamen” (no pun?) are dying in droves because of STDs.

“Darwin’s prostitutes...”

Hence, the Darwin Awards?

Guess I was wrong.

Slander and calumny against the sailors of the United States Navy . Probably originated and disseminated to deceive our Australian cousins by some POMy Poofter boss-tawd.

I agree. Why would anyone buy it?!?! Obviously, many do, but the logic escapes me. One of those great unanswered mysteries of life (for me at least).

Well, I for one am shocked. As a former Naval enlisted and officer I can state firmly that sex was never the first thing on my mind when I pulled into port after a couple of months at sea and saw those tall, lanky, tanned beauties in bikinis with the soft hair blowing in the summer breeze laying out a towel on the beach and breaking out the suntan lotion and rubbing it into one another's...[sound of BtD taking a cold shower]...where was I? Oh, yeah. "Excuse me, Miss, could you tell me where the nearest Christian Science Reading Room is?"

Port call in Oz. Oh, hell...

When I was in Australia in ‘93, I observed the exact same thing. We sailors would walk into a pub and ask for a Budweiser and every girls head would turn, order us a Victoria Bitter instead, and ignore the Aussie dudes.

Green: Prostitution legal and regulated

Blue: Prostitution legal, but organised activities such as brothels and pimping are illegal, prostitution is not regulated.

Darwin is in the blue portion, close to the center-top of the map.

“....ignore the Aussie dudes.”

Indeed, if you have an appetite for “fishing”, Australia is like have your own barrel to yourself. It’s hardly challenging, when the competition doesn’t even know how to bait a hook properly.

Because it is usually far better value than the 'free' stuff.

As an old friend who is both a boater and airplane pilot (and twice divorced) says, 'If it flys, floats, or F****" the better deal is to rent it, not buy it." ;~))

I’ve read articles that referred to someone who got arrested as being a Navy Officer. To me, that means either a warrant officer, or Ensign on up. Then further reading reveals it was a Petty Officer. Sheesh.

Not just the hookers. I met some Aussie girls on holiday in Istanbul while stationed there in the Army. I took them around to see the sights, bought them dinner at a couple restaurants (big deal, $5 a plate) and paid the taxi fares. They were honestly afraid I would expect them to put out. OK so I was HOPING one might put out, but the way they explained it, an Aussie guy could pretty much commit what we call date rape. I told them how enjoyable it was to hang out with a couple cute blue eyed strawberry blondes that spoke English. They had a good time, I had a good time, and if their plane didn't leave 2 days after I met them... Anyway, I've got lots of friends that did vacation in Australia and not a single one didn't have a great time. In Al Gore terms, they all had their second Chakra's relieved.

Hey! I may have flown with that guy.

As an airline pilot of some 20+ years, the guys that “buy it” have seldom been married only twice. Most “real” airline pilots have been through at least five marital cycles by the time they approach retirement. Are you sure he’s really an airline pilot?

As a perpetual victim of the air transport industry, I’m still working on my first marriage (but many have called me an underachiever because of it). Do you suppose that it could be as simple as having never invested in rental services? We may have stumbled onto something here.

:-)

This is no way to run a business.
If you don't know enough to hire temps during the busy season, you shouldn't complain when there's too much to handle.

So to speak.

Yes, temps. Perhaps one of your daughters is available?

If that offends you, remember, the temps you refer to are somebody’s daughters.

I am really heartsick about the references to the prostitutes on this thread. There seems to be no concern whatsoever about whether this behavior offends God or hurts anybody (the whore, the john, the john’s family, the unintended babies created. . .)

Yes, I can ‘feel your pain’.
I can remember the distinct lack of reading rooms etc when visiting such dull ports as Bangkok, Manila, Hong Kong and several other various cities in the Far East.
Olangapo PI had a definite lack of reading rooms etc and it was hard pressed to find something to do.
However there was ALWAYS some SYT around to help pass the time.
Ah, the memories of a ‘glorious youth’ on Unka Sugahs dime...
Some people ought to try the 24/7 routine, under a constant stage of semi-siege, then tell me how they act after being ‘penned up’ for days/weeks/months etc at a time.

Pulled into Darwin a few times, Perth twice, Mackay and Brisbane but Perth was the only port I went to when I was single. I don’t recall hookers being a necessity there, plenty of women available for all. I guess an LHA and LSD together would push a small place like Darwin to the limits though especially if they have Marines onboard, which I assume they do.
