Here’s an eyesore for all you working stiffs out there but according to one Lebanese businessman, Elie Nahas who saw his ass arrested for running a high end prostitution racket off the shores of Cannes, France in 2007, high end call girls can see themselves typically earning close to $40 000 a night during the Cannes Film Festival.

Of course when Elie Nahas says high end call girls he also includes in that bracket actresses, beauty queens and models who catch the eye of very wealthy men who like to partake in the good life and can be seen hobnobbing with the jet set on multi million dollar yachts that they own.

Explains The Hollywood Reporter:

Every year, women ranging from what the French call putes de luxes (high-priced call girls), who charge an average of $4,000 a night, to local streetwalkers, who normally get little more than $50 or $75 an hour turning tricks in nearby Nice, converge on Cannes for what one Parisian hooker calls “the biggest payday of the year.” The influx is hard not to notice. “Hookers stand out in Cannes. They’re the ones who are well-dressed and not smoking,” tweeted Roger Ebert in 2010.

In fact the article goes on to quote a local girl who tells that there is real money to be made and many of the local girls aren’t shy in getting their share of the cash to be made.

The local prostitutes, says Daisy, routinely drop cash off with concierges at the town’s top hotels. In return, if they are lucky, concierges sometimes steer clients their way. During the 10-day festival, an estimated 100 to 200 hookers stroll in and out of the big hotels every day, according to hotel sources.

But it’s the Arabs who Elie Nahas used to canvas and represent where the real money can be made:

Nahas says the money can be bigger than most people realize. The most beautiful call girls, he says, know to target the high-end hotels “where all the Arabs stay.”

“They can make up to $40,000 a night,” says Nahas. “Arabs are the most generous people in the world. If they like you, they will give you a lot of money. At Cannes, they carry money around in wads of 10,000 euros. To them, it’s just like paper. They don’t even like to count it. They’ll just hand it to the girls without thinking. I know the system.”

Yet unfortunately for Ellie Nahas (formerly the right-hand man for Moatessem Gaddafi, the playboy son of Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi), he doesn’t think his ass is going to be able to make it to Cannes this summer on account of the fact that a French judge slapped an 8 year prison sentence on him in absentia and he isn’t so convinced an appeal which is in the works is going to do much for getting him back into France.

And how does the bill swapping actually work?

Nahas says the money can be bigger than most people realize. The most beautiful call girls, he says, know to target the high-end hotels “where all the Arabs stay.”

“They can make up to $40,000 a night,” says Nahas. “Arabs are the most generous people in the world. If they like you, they will give you a lot of money. At Cannes, they carry money around in wads of 10,000 euros. To them, it’s just like paper. They don’t even like to count it. They’ll just hand it to the girls without thinking. I know the system.”

The serious action starts after 10 p.m., he says. Call girls sit in the lobby, and prospective clients check them out.

“It’s all done with hand signals,” he says. “The guys signal their room numbers with their hands and the girls follow them.”

From there Nahas goes on to explain the actual machinations at work , that some of the girls luxury prostitutes come courtesy of ‘organized rings’  where he’d then pick up at the airport before bringing them round to prospective clients. He also goes on to lament his ruined reputation and the travails of trying of having to sit out what is sure to be a money bonanza this upcoming September.

But then not everything is necessarily the picture of joy as the actual work itself isn’t always to every girl’s fancy:

“This woman didn’t even enjoy sex, she told me. But she didn’t mind it, either. She didn’t mind sleeping with men who were repulsive. She said it never lasted more than five minutes, so it wasn’t that bad.”

Then again in the end it may all come down to personal choice and what some of us are willing to tolerate in exchange for a piece of the pie that many girls end up using to ensure stability and security in an admittedly dicey world economy, not that the world is too dicey if you’re a beautiful woman who is willing to clench her teeth and give some of herself away for the right price that is.

Let the good times, booze, drugs, sunshine and the dizzy suntan lotion all take their toll…as all that magic make believe money swaps hands.
