A statement from the Metropolitan police themselves :
In preparation for the Olympics the TPU [Trafficking and Prostitution Unit] has created a dedicated team funded by the Migration Impact Fund (Government Funding) to combat all areas of trafficking and prostitution on the five Olympic Boroughs. The team is comprised of SCD9 funded officers and three fully funded posts from the Migration Impact Fund. [The Met unit SCD9 human exploitation and organised crime command, created in April 2010, is responsible for investigating trafficking. In 2010 – 2011 the SCD9 budget is £7.3m] The funding for these three officer posts will cease in July 2012. This team works closely with TP BOCUS to tackle both on and off street prostitution and continues to advise in planning and delivering covert solutions to tackle the criminality. The intelligence currently held does not support any increase in prostitution in the Olympic Boroughs and actually shows a decrease in some locations. The TPU are continually monitoring this situation.
Meanwhile, the BBC reports on women who pay to have sex with male prostitutes in South Korea :
South Korea has seen a rise in the number of women seeking paid male company, with a boom in “host bars” over the last decade.
Women can wield a new kind of freedom, and economic power, in the all-night drinking rooms.
Seoul correspondent Lucy Williamson spoke to male host “James” about his work, and how some women may want more than just sex.
