Name and Shame Campaign Of Romanian Working Girls

It is a bizarre new trend in Romania - where young men have taken to videoing prostitutes offering their services beside the road - then posting the video online so the women's friends and families can see what they are doing. Many of the working girls are poor mothers forced on to the streets to feed their families. The shame they feel at being "outed" in this fashion is "immense," according to social workers. In this video on YouTube, the working girl was filmed by an anonymous man who tried to find out the rate of her services on camera. It was shot less than 70 miles from the capital Bucharest. The woman who tries to move away hits the man and his camera with her handbag before walking away across a busy road and into a field to hide. The camera is trained on her all the way. The video has already attracted 250,000 views with some insulting the woman, while others criticising the man filming her. Some of the users debated the physical shape of the prostitute. User Behehe Fun said: "How can you have sex with her, she looks like a monkey? God forbid!". Another called Roxy Ramone adds: "She is so bow-legged!". User Teodorescu Filip said: "If her pimp had caught you, he would have shoved that camera up your ass and you would have got a free endoscopy". But a Romanian Orthodox Church spokesman said the video and the comments were a sad sign of the times, adding: "We condemn the sin but not the sinner and this is no way to treat these women. There is nothing funny about it, it is only about degradation and shame for all those involved."
