The corner of Park Lane and Club Lake streets in Pinetown has become a spot for prostitutes. Residents now refer to it as the “sex street”.
Residents said the influx of prostitutes started four months ago. They roam around the street offering to sell their bodies and demanding for sex with virtually every man who walks past ‘their road’.
The prostitutes have seemingly drafted a tempting ‘summeer special’ where any willing man can have sex with them on credit then pay later on, while we enjoy the fine weather of summer.
“They even tell men they can have sex on credit and pay at month end. But one day they spotted a man who owed them and they caused a scene,” said the man.
A man who also doesn’t want to be identified said he is too shy to walk in “sex street” because the prostitutes use strong language when canvassing for clients.
“They used to be on the other side of town. Now people are scared of walking in this street because they get harassed,” said a man who asked not to be named.
Street vendors said they used to make a lot of money but things changed in the last four months.
“You must mind your own business!” said one of the prostitutes to a group of people.
“This is our street, we get a lot of clients here compared to the other street where we used to operate and we won’t move,” she said.
