Yes, videochat, both Iaşi and throughout Romania, is regarded as an activity of the extremely low morale, and girls and boys working on a videochat are stigmatized by society, called whores or prostitutes online.
I have never seen such mean words a person with a financial status and moral well done. Usually, only people with a very precarious financial situation to comment so get acid in their frustration that they are not able to "degrade" in so long, and people financially fantastically good, but considers it is very simple to have a decent paid job in Romania. Pfff ... dreamers.
You know very well that there are thousands of Romanian women who wash down geriatrics for 40 euros per day through Italy and other foreign countries. No, they will not recognize seldom endures many foreign countries for the 30-40 euro per day, but try to get under the skin and they'll recognize you, or tell you how lecherous old men put their hands on bottom breasts like heaven to wash the penis school are like heaven even sexual favors.
But no, the Italians came back to the country after years of torment not know how to vărbească Romanian, they ask "peperoncino" or "como is called" that figures so much they forgot to converse in Romanian. But they are seen better society ... had the courage to go to Italy, returned to the country and have cosntruit house.

Yes, I hate hypocrisy lot, I hate everything that is hypocrisy! And why? Because "prostitution" (or rather the exchange of sexual services) is the oldest profession in the world!
I have no idea how many of you look at things, but only to wash geriatrics / babe down for 40 euro per day (not to mention other details still more indecent) prefer to show my pussy for $ 500 per day, ok?
So, courtesy of the website Descopera.ro, here the history of prostitution (a little anyway). Since their article is quite structured, I completely over so that it can read and you. Click here if you still read it in the original.
Stigmatized and condemned by nemumarate times in history, but secretly funded, prostitution is considered the oldest profession in the world. Although now associate this occupation decay and even dirt living a certain social category, sidelined in the past profession was regarded very differently.
Prostitution seems to be one of the "necessary evils" of human civilization, as has been mentioned since ancient historical documents. However, it is common in tribal communities such as the Aborigines of Australia or tribes of Burma.
The first mentions of this jobs appear in the documents of Babylon, Sumeria and Phoenicia, where prostitution was not stigmatized, on the contrary, it was considered a sacred profession.
In this case we speak of giving the body for sexual pleasure as a form of religious ritual, not for financial gain.
In Babylon, for example, every woman was obliged once in a lifetime to give to a stranger, in the sanctuary of the goddess of love and fertility. This deity, represented by Aphrodite / Venus in Greco-Roman mythology, is known under various names, depending on the region where it was venerated.
Assyrians called him Mullissu in Mesopotamia was called Ninlil and later in Babylon and Akkad was called Ishtar. Sumerians possessed by Inanna and the Semitic peoples Astarte.

The custom is mentioned by the Greek historian Herodotus, who wrote about the "houses of heaven" dedicated to various deities, where the practice of this form of sacred prostitution. Temples were closed until the fourth century AD, the emperor Constantine.
Rituals of this kind, considered fornication in Judaism, are condemned in the Bible where the Jews are advised not to become kedeshah, given time followers and pagan Canaanite religion advocated practicing prostitution in temples.
The Greek civilization has adopted this form of worship of fertility gods. From historical documents we know that the city of Corinth, the Temple of Aphrodite, called hetairai serving women, men offering carnal pleasure and habit were later Hellenistic world in Cyprus, Sicily and Asia Minor.

The ancient Greeks did not condemning prostitution even when it was not her as "sacred". In Athens there were legal brothels, state-controlled prices officially established, employing not only women but also teenagers.
At the same time, the law condemns to death the author of rape or adultery, if he was caught red-handed.
As a convicted sex outside of marriage and the age at which a Greek man was married about 30 years, he did not have much choice if he wanted to have sex before that age. That there were prostitutes or slaves, who were often also used to meet these needs including the master.
Prostitutes "low-cost" luxury courtesans
In ancient Greece prostitutes were clearly established hierarchy according to claim the money available to the client. Most of the "low case" were called and started working under the supervision of a pimp, they provide only part of the money earned. Usually they were slaves or girls abandoned, rejected by family.
The next step were prostitutes working on their own are required to pay a fee to local authorities in the city working. Often, they found their clients among men for dancing or singing at private parties.
At the top of the social hierarchy of the profession were hetairele, who had a similar status famous geisha in Japan. They were highly educated, and sometimes even had their own business.
The most famous prostitute in this category is Aspasia, mistress of Pericles, who was often seen in the company of Socrates, Phidias or Sophocles.
Interestingly, in the brothels of ancient Greece among loyal customers included the women, usually older, who came to enjoy the charms of boys who worked here. The documents have been even complaints from dissatisfied customers of the services received.
However, most clients were men, homosexual acts between an adult and a teenager are regarded as something natural in Greek culture.

A similar mode of organization and control of prostitution appears in ancient Rome. There were large brothels called brothels, especially in Pompeii, where they kept inscriptions and frescoes erotic scenes.
While the Romanian men had the right to call prostitutes of either sex to satisfy their fantasies (as in video chat: D), those who practiced this profession were slaves or infamous, that free men, but do not enjoy the rights granted Roman citizens.
In Islam, prostitution is prohibited and considered a great sin. However, rich men had the right to buy any woman wanted for their harem, also could sell slaves or concubines.
Dancing geisha customer
In Asia there are mentions of courtesans, serving different types of customers. Some of them were educated and knew how to sing and dance, their main role is to entertain men at parties, like geisha. Sex was not included in the contract, although often getting to that relationship. In Japan they were called oiran and South Asia tawaif.
"Sin" Christian Europe regarded with indulgence and Islam
Christianity was officially banned prostitution, but this job was tacitly tolerated and considered a necessary evil. The girls from very poor families often end up in brothels, even sold by their parents. Were frequently encountered with military garrisons, they even accompanied the battlefield.
The prostitutes were required to wear special dresses and brothels could not only work on certain streets, specially marked. Priests or married men were not allowed to visit these places.
During the Renaissance emerged new regulations of this job. They set the fees, rates and trying to control venereal disease, forcing prostitutes to regular health checks.
In the sixteenth century, official brothels in Europe were closed after a devastating epidemic of syphilis, which was then a deadly disease, but this measure has not solved the problem, banished women from brothels continue to practice their profession street.

Although Islam prohibits any form of prostitution, Ottoman documents from the eighteenth century noted that massage therapists working in Turkish baths, usually teenagers, which helps customers to wash them and gave them different sexual the services are on request.
There were even claims depre rates required personal data about boys, plus sexual practices and customer success enjoyed by each employee.
Besides women selling their bodies on the street or in brothels, there was always a selected category of prostitutes, courtesans. They were educated and usually very rich.
One example worth mentioning is Rhopopis a prostitute in ancient Egypt. The Greek historian Herodotus wrote about her that was so rich that he built a pyramid, paying construction of the money he earned with her job.
And in Rome courtesans had a great influence. They gave tone on fashion styling and jewelery, married women being considered a model of elegance and refinement.
Like hetairelor in Greece, courtesans have occupied an important role in Islamic culture, many love poems dedicated to making it. They not only provide sexual services but also quality entertainment. A similar role was played by the geishas of Japan.
Whether you gather wealth and luxurious life they led, courtesans wished to escape this job by marriage. Just so women could become respectable, without being considered inferior because of their profession. Some succeed, some do not.
Some lucky ones are Thais of Athens was mistress and then wife of Alexander his general, Ptolemy, who later became king of Egypt, founder of the Ptolemaic dynasty.
There is only one example. Theodora, wife of Byzantine Emperor Justinian had previously prostitute in a brothel in Constantinople, for customers with modest incomes, along with her sister.

He then became an actress and has attracted the attention of Justinian, who was then heir to the throne of Byzantium.
In order to marry his chosen Justinian repealed a law prohibiting marriage noble men with prostitutes.
Becoming Empress Theodora gave laws by which women had the right to property and built shelters for prostitutes who wanted to quit the profession.
An illegal industry with an annual turnover of 32 billion dollars
Currently, prostitution is viewed very differently by the governments of the world, some countries are very lax, while others chastise practicing this activity.
Prostitution is legal in Canada and several countries in Europe, the most famous B such the Netherlands (since 2000) and Belgium, and Germany (since 2002).
Here, women working in the sex industry have a union of their pay and benefits medical insurance and unemployment. Moreover, prostitutes in Germany are entitled to sign a special contract by which they are entitled to choose their own customers and the services they will provide for them.
On the other hand there are countries who take radical measures to try to combat the phenomenon. Sweden, Norway, Iceland, and France and Scotland have adopted the "Nordic model", which criminalizes clients, even risking their six months in prison. At the same time, the law in these countries consider the prostitutes victims of crime.
Between the two extremes, somewhere in the middle is the law of most European countries, including Hungary and Romania, where prostitution is legal, but tolerated. Pimping is punishable by law, but not clients who use these sexual services.
Beyond these legal regulations, there is a whole industry of human trafficking for forced labor or sexual exploitation.
According to the U.S. government in 2013 were globally more than 27 million victims of this illegal industry, which has an annual turnover estimated at 32 billion dollars, making it the 2nd, after drug trafficking industry.
In 2011, Human Rights estimated that a victim of this industry annual costs only 1,895 dollars, while profit you make is over 29,000 dollars.
