An unnamed 54-year-old man has been charged to court for hiring his wife,46, for sex to 2,742 men in Paris, for four years. The man was said to have made about £5000 monthly by prostituting his wife. The man was said to have used four internet sites and text messages to organise clients for his wife. The couple were arrested and released on bail last Tuesday, while the husband now facing a criminal trial.
The prosecutor, Emmanuel Dupic, told the court that the husband exercised a psychological power over his wife, which made her submit to his vile act. The counsel said prostitution is legal in France though, it is unlawful to solicit for sex.
