The ladies have taken it on themselves to regulate the Spanish banking sector by withholding sexual favours from bank employees.
reports that in the Spanish capital, Madrid, the largest trade association for luxury escorts has started an indefinite strike. They say that until bankers return to providing credits to Spanish families and also small- and medium-sized businesses, there will be no sexual pleasures for their employees.
The whole thing began with one of the escorts, who forced one of her regular clients to grant a line of credit and loan, by refusing sexual services until he “fulfills his responsibility to society.”
A spokeswoman for the trade association has praised them, stressing that the government and the Bank of Spain have previously failed to adjust the credit flow. She stated: "We are the only ones with a real ability to pressure the sector. We have been on strike for three days now and we don't think they can withstand much more.”
The spokeswoman further said that some of their banking clients had made "pitiful attempts" to use their services by pretending to be architects or engineers.
“But they don't fool anyone since it has been many years since these professionals could afford rates that start from 300 euro an hour," she said.
The Mexican news website, SDPnoticias.com
, reported that the bankers became so desperate that they even called in the government for mediation in the issue.
The newspaper cited the Minister of Economy and Competitiveness as saying that lack of legislation in regulating the escort sector has made it difficult for the government to intercede.
He was quoted as saying: "In fact, there has not even been a formal communication of the strike - the escorts are making use of their right of admission or denying entry to…well, you know. So no one can negotiate."
Meanwhile the ladies are sticking to their guns and sending the bankers packing.
