Prostitution politics in Russia

It’s hard to know what will appeal to me from night to night. Sometimes I feel like writing about local politics, and sometimes I see a relatively small item that sends me spinning off on a tangent. Tonight, it’s an article about a Russian woman named Ekaterina Gerasimova that has me clicking around the web. It seems as though she’s made a name for herself on Russian television by seducing and then fucking critics of the Kremlin in front of hidden cameras. Here, with more, is a clip from the Huffington Post:

s-ekaterina-gerasimova-large…According to reports, Ekaterina, or ‘Katya,’ as she is known, has seduced half a dozen prominent critics of the Russian government, inflicting huge damage to their reputations when she later releases video footage of their cocaine-fueled trysts.

Viktor Shenderovich, Katya’s latest victim, believes the girl is part of a Kremlin-led plot to discredit its enemies.

Shenderovich, a journalist and the script writer for a satirical Russian TV show, said, “This is not entertainment, the filming was done professionally, federal forces were involved in it. This is being done by the authorities for two purposes: to discredit and to blackmail.”

The married father admitted that the footage of him having intercourse with Katya was accurate…

I worry that it’s just a matter of time before American reality television, perhaps with the support of someone on the right, like Rupert Murdoch, delivers us at the same point… And, come to think of it, I hear that Ashley Dupré is looking for work.

    I wish someone would try to set me up like that. Maybe I’ll start an anti-Kremlin blog.

    I hate the fucking Kremlin.

    And I can be found drinking at the Tap Room on Wednesday nights.

    Agreeing with Newsy, I’d much prefer to be fucked than murdered.

    Good job, Kremlin.

    We should do this locally, on community access television. Maybe as a segment on Dreamland Tonight. God knows we’ve got the prostitutes and plenty of men that need to be taken down a peg or two.

    This stuff has been going on forever. The only thing new about it here is the scale, and the fact that the prostitute has become a celebrity. And, I think it speaks well of the Kremlin that they aren’t killing their foes. It seems they’re getting a little smarter.
