Covid 19 coronavirus: The adult industry in Queenstown is struggling without tourists | Instant News

The absence of wealthy foreign tourists has affected the adult entertainment industry in Queenstown, as New Zealanders are unwilling to spend a fortune.

Indulge Me NZ owner Antonia Davison-McDonald said her striptease company had lost 80 percent of bookings due to Covid-19.

Australians at bachelor parties, hen parties and men’s weekends will use the agency to hire topless waiters and order striptease by men or women.

The lack of bookings means five of its staff have moved away from Queenstown as they can no longer afford to live there.

Davison-McDonald said its staff work for Indulge Me NZ as side jobs to help pay their rent or fund their lifestyle, and in some cases the pandemic has meant they have lost their main job.

He and others in the wider adult industry say Christmas tends to be a quiet time, but his business is still recovering from a loss of revenue in August – usually the busiest time.

“This year has been very bad; last August we had 26 bookings and this year we got five.”

Small groups of wealthy Australians are usually paid to have women work on the large properties they rent, while New Zealanders book fewer staff and for less time.

However, Bon Ton’s high-end escort business has decided to open in Queenstown.

Jennifer Souness, who started an agency in Wellington, said without COVID-19 she would have no problem with demand, but wealthy foreign tourists are prohibited by restrictions so her business doesn’t accept bookings until September.

After initially struggling to recruit due to advertising problems with Trade Me, he received numerous applications from “sex-loving” women who wanted to earn money, but Christmas proved lean.

“Talking to my friends who have agencies in different cities, they told me that business is good, but Queenstown is different.”

He felt the transtasman bubble would be “big,” because his company didn’t want to serve the mass market.

An independent chaperone, who did not wish to be named, said he has had a steady number of clients since moving to Queenstown in November, mainly from the older population.

New Zealand’s Sex Workers’ Collective national coordinator Dame Catherine Healy said sex workers were generally made difficult in Queenstown through “hostile regulations” that were incompatible with other countries, and that few sex workers remained.

He said the sex workers continued to tour the South Island, including Queenstown, but stayed only a few days while proactively seeking clients.

“It is business as usual, but Queenstown is a tourist town so sex workers will rely on domestic men to visit them.”

Dame Catherine said the regulations, which generally prohibit brothels, created “a potentially very threatening situation”.

However, he did thank the Queenstown police for making sex worker safety a priority.

The last old brothel in Queenstown closed in 2008, although illegal ones have been discovered since then.

The Brothel Control Bylaw 2017 prohibits brothels from being on or under the ground floor of a building, within 100m of other brothels or in certain areas of Queenstown and CBD Wanaka.

Axes and AKs: Fashion has a big moment at Nazi LARP in Michigan’s Capitol | Instant News

Want to know what’s hot for fall? Look no further than the hundreds of trendsetters, fashionistas, human mayonnaise packages, and armed militias who stepped up their belongings – and challenged Governor Gretchen Whitmer and his “sham-demic” coronavirus policy – on the Capitol’s measures on Thursday.

Be careful, Paris fashion week! Walk, New York! Back to your hometown, Milan! This is where Michigan displays the best MAGA, misogyny, and fools. Look at some of the boldest, wetest, saddest fashion statements we have seen in Lansing.

Michigan’s unique libtard weather forced anti-Whitmer demonstrators to wear their best rain gear. And, kid, did they become creative.

A protester even found some vintage inspiration from the first lady and Queen Obama-birther herself, Melania Trump, is wearing a similar outfit Zara’s controversial jacket in 2018 when she goes to visit migrant children who have been separated from their families by her husband’s racist hand-in-chief. Hey, at least they spell “tyranny” properly!

Want to blend and stand out at the same time? Whos not ?! Just slap the camouflage poncho and hold a weapon that can fire 600 revolutions per minute in public and in broad daylight. Besides, nobody says, “Hey, don’t look at me or my weapon again” like white people … just white people.

Because many people are forced to coat, covering what we have to imagine to be very suitable for curating, that accessory is the most popular. Not really. The accessories really hate.

Look at this grandfather’s incel! Neither rain nor general courtesy could stop him from tying the rope around Whitmer-inspired Barbie dolls! Also, someone had clearly swept their Tyra Banks “smize!” Fierce! And actually very scary.

Do you know couples who have been together for a long time and love each other so much that they start to look like each other? Yes, we really like the flag-to-flag-from-flag energy of this couple who only shout “missionary sex once every election cycle!”

Another hot accessory trend? Children who don’t know why they are dragged out of the house to stand in the rain without a mask and watch a group of adults with frightening weapons who will most likely learn how to run from when the drill school shoots screaming about a woman who works so hard to keep children like them, and their stupid parents, safe. Don’t have kids? No problem. Acting like that. It seemed quite popular on Thursday.

For those without spare children, partners or Barbie dolls to damage, all you need to make a statement is just a poster board, markers and messages. Take it from this person who has all three! A teaching aid for his Google search that really tells him how to spell correctly “vaccination” and “deez.” Good luck with your diagnosis of polio in the future!

Now, for those who have a strong artistic vision, an Exacto knife, some tin foil, and zero clues as to what the prison actually is, accessories can also be used practically. Take these people who cannot defend their constitutional rights as much as they can rely on them. You go, Karen!

Fashion is meant to push boundaries. The same thing can apply to weapons. This guy does both when he brings a good old-fashioned ax to the crossfire / Trump. And, reason youMr. Who says you can go straight kill in the constitutional graphic hoodie? What an advanced and fashionable way, truly strained to remind yourself and your neighbors about your constitutional rights. Yes, not all of them, only what you choose to enforce using intimidation tactics, weapons, and hatred of a woman in power.

While so many people who attended the Lansing protest were very serious about their fashion statement, imagination also had a big moment. From the DIY mask, DIY signs that imagine Whitmer as Hitler, and, well, just look at this … Pokemon-people.

Remember, friends. Stand for what you believe is always in style. Unless you dress like a child anime creature holding an AR-15. Then maybe, just don’t. And please, until Big Gretch says otherwise, stay home.
