Houseboats in the State so important for the state’s economy,  has brought with it both foreign and domestic tourists looking to enjoy sexual encounters with local women and sometimes even children.The queens of this lucrative sex trade in this houseboats capital are three women – Jessy, Zeenath and Shehna, Deccan Chronicle discovered in a week-long investigation.

The three are experienced hands in the industry with influential connections. Zeenath is the top gun and has bought lands in several areas near town, reveals a sex worker.Only a couple of weeks ago a young girl was supplied to an Arab tourist on a houseboat this way, according to her.

“It was her first sexual encounter. The 20-year-old girl from Adoor in Pathanamthitta district was taken by Jessy, an agent living in a rented house in Edathva here, to the Arab tourist for three days for a sum of Rs 45,000 with the help of Zeenath and Shehna.

The young girls are more in demand as they are seen as disease-free by tourists, according to others in the trade. The agents therefore charge double for supplying them, pocketing 50 per cent of the amount as commission. The younger the better for some as Alappuzha appears to have become a hunting ground for paedophiles as well.
