Tamale commercial sex workers increase fees

Commercial sex workers in Tamale have upwardly adjusted their fees. With condom, one sexual bout or short time which was GHS5 is now GHS10 and GHS15 respectively.

For only romance and massaging, they charge between GHS3 and GHS5 cedis, Citi FM’s undercover investigations revealed.

They attributed this to what they described as the high cost of living.

According to some of the commercial sex workers, the prices of Brazilian hair weaves, cloths, shoes, quality pomade, rent and medical checkup have all gone up. The astonishing aspect of this booming commercial sex trade in Tamale Township is that some Senior High School students who are in boarding houses escape to town at night to engage in this trade, according to report.

The commercial sex workers in Tamale are usually found on the road linking the Tamale Branch of Stanbic bank with Diamond FM towards the Bank of Ghana building.
