Cops don’t yet know if two teen girls dancing partially nude at a cash-for-sex party were part of the crew of prositutes. They do know who was running the party – the mom of one of the sixteen-year-old girls.
Police broke up what amounted to a temporary brothel in Detroit took the daughter into protective custody. They sent her mother off to jail, along with several men who seemed to be involved in a scheme that required johns to pay a $15 cover charge to get into the party and another fee to have sex with one of the nineteen adult women in the house. In a statement released by the Wayne County Sheriff, police say they don’t know if the girls were paid for sex. I don’t think it matters.
We’ve written fairly regularly on the ‘Derby about parents who seem to cross the line of permissive when it comes to sex and their teenagers, but pimping parents are another class entirely. Kids will have sex, often before we want them to (trust me, as the mother of a girl, I am NOT looking forward to this day). But letting someone pay to have a look-see at your teenage daughter – even if they don’t touch – sounds like sexual abuse to me.
