KKNK: Sex on the sidelines

2004-04-04 12:56
Oudtshoorn - The annual Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) is not only an economic boost for Oudtshoorn businesses, it is also a very busy time for sex workers.

Bettie, a pimp, says "her girls" earn between R4 000 and R6 000 a night during the nine days of the festival.

A well-known businessman last year even bought one of her girls a R35 000 house in Bridgeton.

Another sex worker, one with a 40DD bosom, charges men R600 for just touching her assets.

Bettie says farmers, businessmen and foreigners of all races -whites, blacks and Indians - "find the coloured girls irresistible".

She says the girls have permanent clients, but new ones are added every year.

"Not everybody visiting the KKNK attend the shows. Many of the men drop off their families at the shows before heading their smart cars to their favourites spots."

One such a spot is a difficult to reach hill outside town, known as "steam hill", where the men go "to let off steam".

Celebrating 10th anniversary

The KKNK is celebrating its 10th anniversary and more people are expected to attend this year. The sex workers are also hoping to get more clients.

"We are not counting our regular Oudtshoorn clients. They are our 'gold card' clients, and include top municipal workers, dominees and lawyers. Policemen get free sex in exchange for silence."

One top municipal official has had "sex on credit" 15 times. The particular sex worker says she's going to expose him if he doesn't pay the R1 500 he owes her.

The girls also have their "Sunday specials". These men drop their wives at church before picking up a sex worker to take home with them, "straight into the warm bed where the missus had been sleeping". The men return the sex workers before collecting their wives from church.

During the KKNK, foreigners pay R400 for the "main course", while local clients pay only R250.

Bettie says her girls get a bonus and a holiday after the festival.
