AROUND 100,000 men visit prostitutes in the Balearic Islands each year, it has been revealed.
Some 2,350 female prostitutes work on the islands in an industry worth €50 million annually.
According to the new report from The Study Group for Prostitutes on the Balearic Islands (GEPIB), 5,000 local men pay for sex five or more times a month.
Around 15,000 men visit prostitutes three or four time a month while 25,000 do so around once a month.
The study also revealed that 600 of the women are forced to sleep with men 20 times a week or more.
It went on to say that Spain’s economic recession had seen a rise in women aged 40 or over turning to prostitution to pay bills.
