Belarus is a popular tourist destination, particularly for Russians since gambling here is not banned as it is in their own country. With a reputation for being Girls looking for sex Belarus of the capitals of European sex tourism, the country receives a lot of international attention for its adult industry tours. Though prostitution is illegal, we wanted to know why Belarus has this reputation and how this compares to how sex is viewed in society. In this guide, we take a look at the prostitution and pornography laws in Belarus as well as looking at what kinds of porn the Belarusians are watching.
Situated in the north east of Europe and bordered by Russia to the east, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west and Lithuania and Latvia to the north, Belarus is home to a population of around 9. It is a large, flat but forested country, aroundsq. Belarus incorporates some beautiful cities like Minsk, Grodno and Brest; Minsk itself is home to around a quarter of the population of the country and is therefore one of the most populous cities in Europe.
Belarus is a Slavic nation and has strong ties with the former Soviet Union and shares many cultural similarities to Russia; from religion and architecture to the social class systems and values, there is a lot of correlation between them. So close are the two nations that Belarus has been in negotiations with Russia since in an attempt to form a single state to be called the Union of Russia and Belarus.
This followed a referendum in when Russian was adopted as an official language alongside Belorussian. Although, Belorussian is widely spoken, Russian is the more common tongue. A staunchly conservative nation, Belarus is the only country in Europe where the death penalty is not just a legal one but has been used several times in the last decade.
By and large, the country is considered very safe as well as being clean and green with compared to Ukraine and Russia excellent ro.
In fact, according to statistics, out of almost cities, Minsk was ranked in terms of danger and is one of the safest capitals in the world. The President, Alexandr Lukashenko, has been in office since and has been at the centre of official sanctions imposed by both the EU and the U. Belarusians are considered very friendly, hard-working and hospitable people with a humble and sincere attitude. However, in the latest World Happiness Report which ranks countries by general happiness measured by satisfaction on freedom, income, health and social supportBelarus is ranked just 73 rd.
This suggests that the rest of us are getting happier or that the Belarusians are growing more discontent with their lot. Some of the findings included:. Belarusian women have a reputation for being feminine, beautiful in that classic Slavic way and very friendly but quite shy. Sex, in general, does not happen fast unless you are paying for it! Due to the political landscape and quite strict visa legislation, there is less of an influence in Belarus from Western capitalism and consumerism along with the inherent culture that this brings.
In this way, much of the orthodox values of their society have been preserved. However, the country has a reputation for being one of the sex tourism capitals of Eastern Europe and there is much underground prostitution. Though illegal, there is the suggestion that the authorities turn a blind eye to this kind of activity.
Overall, the culture in Belarus is a reasonably orthodox one and sex, whilst not a taboo subject, is a private matter and not something that is generally talked about. The predominant characteristic is one of conservatism and traditionalism with some strong views being held on same-sex relationships see LGBTQ in Belarusbelow. On the flip side, prostitution and sex tourism are common but, in general, remain discreet.
Pornography is illegal in Belarus and the production, promotion, distribution and sale of pornographic materials or pornographic objects carries a risk of a criminal offence. As a result of these strict laws, there is no legitimate porn industry in Belarus. Not wishing to risk criminal convictions, both adult film actors and producers are known to work in other parts of Europe. Despite only recording about a dozen movies, one of the most enduringly popular adult film stars of Belarus is Lita Girls looking for sex Belarus.
She is a bit of unknown and mysterious name in porn and there has been little from her since the release of Sweethearts Special 47 in but she has garnered interest in her anal action and lesbian scenes.
She is an all-natural performer with an enticingly cheeky smile and should, by rights, have a much bigger back catalogue. According to XVideos, the top porn stars from Belarus by overall rankings and video views are as follows:. Prostitution is illegal in Belarus but is considered an administrative offence rather than a criminal one. Despite the illegality of prostitution, Belarus has become a popular country for sex tourism, particularly from Russia where there are no visa restrictions.
There are also sex tours that operate to the capital from both Western Europe and from Turkey. For the Russians, the draw is two-fold with gambling being legal in Belarus and not in their own country. High-rolling Russians hit the casinos, stay at the top hotels and come to expect a bit of action on the side.
In fact, some of the casinos are thought to have at least a few links with the sex industry. Whether this is true or not is open for discussion but anecdotal evidence suggests that, if you can pay well, you can easily find brothels in Belarus. The majority of prostitutes working in Belarus are either Belarusian or Russian with women also coming from other Eastern European states including Ukraine and Moldova.
There is also an appetite from tourists for Asian girls and there is a high proportion of Vietnamese women working in the industry. Owing to the fact that a lot of prostitutes work from the streets, the peak season for prostitution is during the summer months with very little action at all during the winter. This is also due to the fact that demand dries up during this time due to a lack of visitors. Of course, the top-end brothels continue to operate whatever the season.
You can find sex for sale in almost all areas of the adult nightlife of Minsk including the saunas, spas, and clubs as well as from the street, near hotels and via escort or online directories. Despite pornography being illegal in Belarus, there is a good appetite for internet porn. However, it is thought that many users access their porn using a VPN or proxy-server as there are laws in place which prevent ISPs and Wi-Fi hot-spot operators from allowing traffic to porn sites.
Each year the behemoth of porn, Pornhub, produces statistics on the traffic to its site by country and Belarus last went under the microscope in July The data used to produce this report is based solely on the traffic to Pornhub but, as the most visited adult site in Belarus ranked 45 th of the top 50 sites visited in the countrythe stats are indicative of general trends. First off, although Belarus is ranked 92 nd in the world in terms of its population it is the 66 th most frequent visitor to Pornhub by traffic.
Next up…staying power. Belarusians spend an average of 9 minutes and 6 seconds on the site which is around 5 seconds longer than Russians but almost half a minute shorter than the global average. Other popular searches from Minsk include:. Due to the lack of professionally made porn from Belarus there is very little adult content Girls looking for sex Belarus material shot in the country. Certainly, there are no archive websites that specialise in this area.
Being homosexual in Belarus is highly restrictive and, although completely legal, carries with it a highly negative social stigma. Homosexuality was legalised in with an equalised age of consent but it is far from being an accepted lifestyle in modern Belarus. In the case of the latter there are no laws to protect LGBTQ citizens against any form of discrimination, either in the workplace, in public or within the health and law enforcement services.
There is no legislation which covers, directly or indirectly, any prejudice and inequity on the grounds of sexual orientation or gender identity. Homosexuality and transgenderism are both classified as mental illnesses in Belarus and there is a high suicide rate within the community. It goes without saying that same-sex marriages are banned and there is no legal or social recognition of homosexual relationships.
However, just one in ten want the law to be changed to outlaw same-sex relations. Public support is exceptionally rare and political leaders both in power and in opposition are vocal on their condemnation of homosexuality. The community face the constant threat of anti-LGBTQ violence and reports of attacks, beatings and rape. In addition, victims report that the police often refuse to register such attacks and do not conduct thorough investigations into these incidences. In addition, they also accuse the authorities of collecting personal information from them which do not relate to the crimes committed.
Furthermore, the police are also accused of inciting violence and perpetrating unprovoked harassment of establishments known to be frequented by the LGBTQ community. As a result of the constant threat of discrimination, abuse and violence there are no official LGBTQ organisations in Belarus with just a handful of groups who do Girls looking for sex Belarus best to represent the interests of the community. Several attempts have been made by these various groups to organise rallies, marches and peaceful protests but all have met with some form of official resistance forcing many of them to be cancelled.
This being said, there have been a dozen or so Pride marches held in Minsk, the last being in There are no official figures on the of homosexuals in Belarus but one of the main sources of community online, the gay blog Sunshine. Overall, the situation in Belarus for the LGBTQ community is not a positive one and there is much scope for improvement.
Generally, the country is not regarded as either a safe or desirable location for gay tourists.
The internet, for many, is still a relatively new technology and has almost doubled in a decade. This is particularly true in more rural parts of the country. As a result, dating sites are not popular in Belarus as a whole but are quite useful in the capital city of Minsk.
Certainly, Tinder has not got much coverage outside of tourists who use it in Belarus. Where it is used by Belarusians, it is generally to make new friends to practice English with. In fact, the hook up culture has not yet penetrated Belarus with most Belarusians primarily being interested in long-term relationships. Casual encounters with genuine singles are rare and there are not that many opportunities for a one-night stand. It is unsurprising that the three most popular dating sites in the country are all Russian with the following offering premium and more mainstream dating opportunities:.
There are a couple of international sites that offer a free -up with some interesting in Belarus:. These sites are more geared towards casual encounters but, be warned, there are also tales of cat-fishing, scamming and hoaxes on all of them. Most foreign observers report that dating in Belarus is quite easy and it is often the best policy to do this the old-fashioned way and head to the bars and clubs in Minsk. Belarusian women tend to be very open-minded when it comes to the advances of foreigners and statistics show that Italians and Turks are their preferred choice.
