Prostitutes who service naval bases around the world are suffering from a new form of battle fatigue — they’re getting burned out from pleasuring droves of U.S. sailors involved in the war on terror!
The unhappy hookers have become so exhausted from wartime duty that many have been put on temporary leave for the sake of their mental health.
“These young women weren’t around for World War II — they’ve never dealt with the intense drives of men who are engaged in a real war and are pumped up on adrenaline,” says a psychologist.
“It’s got to be very traumatic for them.”
The problem has gotten so out of hand that madam Mary-Anne Kenworthy was forced to shut down her famous brothel Langtree’s, in Perth, Australia, because her luscious ladies of the evening had become too frazzled to provide top-notch service.
Langtree’s clientele doubled when 5,500 battle-weary American sailors arrived Down Under, many of them stressed out from the war and desperate to blow off steam.
The hero seamen, from the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis, the guided missile cruiser USS Port Royal and the support ship USS Bridge, had played a vital role in America’s new war against terrorism.
“A lot of it was stress. They’d been in a war zone,” Ms. Kenworthy said in an interview. “And they were a lot more agitated sexually because they’d been at sea too long.”
Hookers from Langtree’s and other brothels worked overtime to satisfy the customers — but keeping up with the demand was impossible. “All the sex workers in Perth would have been exhausted,” the madam said.
And seeing action nonstop took a visible toll on the working girls. “The girls were starting to refuse to have sex,” Ms. Kenworthy says.
When the veteran madam realized the flesh-peddling floozies were coming unglued, she closed Langtree’s doors for a day so the gals could rest up, rather than risk damaging the brothel’s decades-old reputation.
“We’re the best,” Ms. Kenworthy explained. “I’d rather take nothing than offer poor service.”
