Skip to comments.Seamen ahoy - Darwin women can't keep up as US Navy officers arrive
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!
Since the first army and navy was formed, this has been going on. Or so I ‘ve heard, never having been myself. [snicker]
Someone should explain to the author that Navy officers and sailors aren’t the same thing.
With the typical journalists level of knowledge of the military, they’re lucky she’s not talking about soldiers in boats.
I wonder how the story will read after repeal of DADT?
“Every horny woman comes out of the woodwork,” she said.
Hmmmmmm, I don’t quite know what to make of that. Hahahaha. Maybe if you are at sea long enough they all look good. Chuckle, chuckle, snort, snort.
“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.
At 1st I thought this was a story on how US “seamen” (no pun?) are dying in droves because of STDs.
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.
“Or so I ve heard, never having been myself. [snicker]”
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).
I am sure glad Seamen was spelled correctly for this article.
“American men are the only water in that emotional desert.”
Just to let you know I appreciate a well turned phrase.
Port call in Oz. Oh, hell...
Snap out of it, sailor!
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.
Do they give out Darwin awards?
“....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.
sometimes I think AIDS has a point.
too bad marriage vows mean so little these days
The Aussie women appreciate the American men in uniform more than some Americans do.
“Every horny woman comes out of the woodwork.”
Guess she’s never been to a country-western bar in the States.
“I wonder how the story will read after repeal of DADT?”
There will be Plenty of Hustlers to service the Poofters.
I'm guessing most of that is actually at night.
That and semen and seamen are different
Obama would pronounce it “SeaSmen”.
Go Team USA!
Well there ain’t much else to do in Darwin now is there? Box jellies and salt water crocs make land based..er..recreation more appealing.
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.
Call for Mamie Stover...Call for Mamie Stover...pick up the white courtesy phone....
(By the way, you owe me a keyboard.)
***Guess shes never been to a country-western bar in the States.***
And the men I work with who pick up girls there always get crabs and clap!
Sounds like they need to select a better grade of skank!
“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.” ;~))”
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.
Perhaps we are the only two who find this thread very disheartening.
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. . .)
“Ship rules mean no sex on board”
The demise of “don’t ask-don’t tell” will change all that!
Well, I wouldn't know about that, but I would say that you're the only ones who would wish a fatal venereal disease on your fellow human beings. That qualifies you as virtuous, I suppose, and the rest of us as sinful. Have a very nice evening.

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.
I have not wished a fatal venereal disease on anybody. What are you talking about?
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.
I see the name of my old gray lady, the USS Peleliu...
And it’s a story about prostitutes.
