Hello Lina, I don't know whether I told You - I have lived in London and moved a bit in high secular MENA circles. Not much because I get bored with them lol. I love how You describe them, because it's very true. London and Paris are very similar in some respects, but very different at the same time. These are my 2 all time favourite Cities and I love both athough I'd rather live in London. Like You I am very tolerant and accomodating but within the frame of social settings. I still tremendously respect other cultures and religions but on condition my culture and beliefs are respected too. And no, I will never sacrifice my freedom, friends, way of life for a life I feel no comfortable in.

I know Soho and Chinatown very well. Yeah, I have heard of those cheap parlours. I didn't know girls working there were slaves in fact. Isn't British Police doing something about that? I knew a girl from Thailand and an Italian who used to work in this sort of place but they were free and did it willingly for the money. I know they made about a £1000 a day and it was 25-30 years ago and it was a lot of money. The Thai was in Knightsbridge though. At the time public telephone red boxes were plastered in cards with pictures of semi naked women and their phone numbers. I mean, You couldn't even see outside because the glass window was all in cards and posters. Are there still red phone boxes now everyone has a mobile phone? I didn't know Muslim boys went there but it is of course possible. Many British Black men have told me escorts did not want them or let them in or something like that. The Thai was telling me she never accepted Asians because she didn't want potential white clients to see them lol. She was my neighbour.

There was a place - Cleopatra. A nightclub with belly dancers. The owner was Cypriot and his wife was a Moroccan singer. An Iraqi female friend took me to Stringfellows. She was a regular. Pizza Pomodoro was full of Arabs but they were more upscale I think. I had many MENA girlfriends in London but they were secular and didn't care much about MENA men. Most actually avoided MENA and Pakistanis like they were plague. Yes, many MENA girls do escorting in London and Paris and marry Europeans but for obvious reasons avoid their fellow men, especially the low class trash like men. My friendship with MENA women is one of the reasons I didn't socialise much with MENA men. Not that I have regrets or am at a loss lol.

MENA and Muslim men in London are not as obnoxious as their parisian counterparts. I have been approached and disrespected a bit in London, but have lived nothing like the horrors I had to endure here. Here some stalk badly and nothing works. I once had to lead the a$*h*le to a Police station. And he said "Oh, OK I wait for You outside".

Many, many Maghrebian women have to endure mass rapes, face cutting for not wearing a hijab, insults and more. The secular usually escape to single life and stop mingling with their kind. Many succeed in life. Those who succeed are usually with non-Muslim non-MENA men like former Justice secretary Rachida Dati. I wish them well. Here the marriages between women of NA origin and French men have the lowest divorce rate.

Rats can see a live escort on TV only or in a magazine hahahaha. Escorts do not live in rat infested areas. They don't need to. Rats envy everybody. I don't agree they only begrudge escorts for the money they make. Rats lack sex and envy those who can get it easily, be it a man or a woman. They'd love to be able to afford those escorts once or twice a year before going back to their less glamorous covered, not made up wife if they can afford one or to their parent's council flat where they share a room with another 2-3 siblings of all ages.

I agree about feeling older with them. Also they sometimes sadly make You look older. I once met Israeli model Michael Lewis here in Marais. OMG, google him. I think he is gay sadly but worth the look. The man is so handsome, smart, polite and speaks perfect French and English. Many French men dress very well and invest a lot in appearence. MENA men look silly in their cheap, shiny polyester suits with the pointy mock leather shoes and the hair sprouting from the collar. If You like Italians, the South of France is full of them.

I must visit You in London while it's easier before You Brexit. Greetings from La Defense.
