World Cup Booty Takes a Pounding

Most of the fans filling the World Cup stadiums are men, and if there are 3 or 4 things most of those men enjoy, it’s beer, babes, beer babes, and the occasional dust-up. Just being honest, which makes this story all the more interesting.

According to recent reports, local booty sales have been taking a serious pounding. With some South African brothels reporting an 80-90% drop in business, those male football fans just aren’t living up to expectations. That’s not the amusing side to this tale of woe … the theoretical reasons why “sales” are down … that’s the fun part.

During interviews with some media outlets like CNN, local prostitutes and law enforcement have been pitching some interesting theories. They think the taste for entertainment amongst male football fans has changed. It’s no longer babes and big parties, it’s all about the cultural activities.

Yessiree, booty calls may well have dried up in South Africa, but the activity at local museums and art galleries is booming. That’s right. Fans are hitting the stadiums and bars to watch the game, but once that game is over, they’re heading back to their hotels or spending their dough on more highbrow cultural experiences.

I suppose it’s possible. I suppose someone might have snapped their fingers and the teeming masses of men suddenly developed a taste for culture. Although … maybe there’s a more logical reason.

  • Maybe it has something to do with those newfangled female condoms that were being passed out on the streets for free. They’re meant to prevent rape, but still a little unnerving.
  • Maybe it has something to do with the foreign female fans … like this one over here » » Hey, the stadiums are filled with gorgeous women. Why chat up a hooker when you can shmooze with regular gals that share a common interest? [Theoretical question, no need to answer.]
  • Maybe it has something to do with the barrage of news stories over the last few years warning people about the ridiculous levels of crime in South Africa.
  • Or maybe, just maybe it has something to do with all the coverage talking about AIDS and HIV in South Africa. With a population of 49.5-million of which 5.7-million have AIDS or HIV, the odds are somewhat unpalatable.

Whatever the reason may be, I say … kudos to the male football fans in South Africa.

I’m pretty sure that the nearly 1 in 8 odds of locals having AIDS or HIV is the real reason for avoiding the working gals – the odds are 1 in 3 for women aged 25-29 – but hey … if you want to pitch culture, I’ll play along.
