From $1,300 Tiger Penis To $800K Snipers: The Complete Black Market Price Guide

Tyler Durden's picture

Late last year, we said that "hookers and blow" were set to lift Britain over France as the world’s fifth largest economy. 

And we weren’t joking. 

As The Telegraph noted when the figures were released, "the Centre for Economics and Business Research said Britain's acceleration was boosted by the inclusion of sex and drugs to UK growth."

France, on the other hand, has taken the moral high ground by "refus[ing] to comply with EU rules because it does not consider [drug use and prostitution] to be 'voluntary commercial activities'".

"Voluntary" or not, failing to include the illicit activities which drive the world’s shadow economies could lead to material miscalculations. And besides, even if one wants to argue that illegality is impossible to measure, surely making an honest attempt to come up with an accurate representation of economic output is preferable to the BEA's now standard practice of simply "adjusting" the real data in order to get a goalseeked outcome. As WSJ put it last June, "if drug sales aren't counted in a place where people spend half their income on drugs, one could conclude, wrongly, that the population saved half its money." The U.N. made a similar argument back in 2008 when it contended that "accounts as a whole are liable to be seriously distorted" if governments refuse to include all transactions. 

Fortunately for anyone looking to get a read on the going rate for the various goods and services which comprise the world’s black markets (and in some countries serve as a much needed boon for GDP), Havocscope has a price list for everything you’ve ever wanted to buy (and everything you wouldn’t touch even with Mario Draghi’s hands) from someone in a dark and smoky back alley. 

First, a bit on Havocscope’s methodology

Data listed within Havocscope’s website is collected from credible open-source documents such as newspapers, government reports and academic journals. The source for the figure is clearly listed on each data post. This allows users to see where the information has come from, judge the credibility of the source, and pursue further research if necessary.

That seems fair enough, and so, without further ado, we present current price lists for a veritable smorgasbord of illegal goods and services.

How much for private email server pics of Hillary and Huma scissoring?



Asking for a friend.

800k for a group of three snipers.   When they absolutely, positively have to been dead.

So one in the Daltek building, two on the grassy knoll, but how much for the patsy in the school book supository?

If I go out an hunt me up a pound of bear bile I can afford 5 classy hookers in Cannes.

.. and with my M82 with the Mk4, I could join the team and afford even more Cannes sweeties.

  • Afghanistan$1,500
  • Afghanistan-Kabul$1,500 for US issued Night Vision Googles
  • Australia$15,493 in Sydney
  • Average price of AK-47 worldwide$534

AK in Australia costs 30 times the world average???!!!  (Plus we're not allowed to have them).  Australians ripped off again.  Luckily I found this lovely how-to video:!
Now I just need a furnace and some metal-working talent.  Or maybe I'll just have to make-do with one of these:
But is would probably still cost me more than the world average price of a real one!

Too much personal risk. Bitcoin is not anonymous and neither are electronic communications.

An anonymous internet and currency would launch the world into a new era.

You're probably right - would be done by a professional instead of the office boy-toy down the hall .... the one who spends most of his time catching ....

$20,000 for a prostitue in Pennsylvania??? What the hell? Even @ $700/day is stupid.

I could go down to AJ Gators and score for a lot less than that.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Actually, I kind of liked that figure. I think I'll file it under " Maybe being a single guy would be a hell of a lot cheaper than married." Knowing his taste level and considering I give him my 6K/month salary,he may rethink that idea.

I can vouch for that - being single is a HELL of a lot cheaper ;)

What is the worst a $5 dollar hooker or a $500 dollar hooker.

Manthong's picture might make a bit of a difference if you were in Somalia.

CheapBastard's picture

It's $5 for the somalia hooking itslef, but $500 afterward to leave alive.

fedupwhiteguy's picture

In Re WW4F...

$700/day for a hooker in OC Cali is about average. Remember, they are stating per day. A young, beauty charges $200/hr. So...all she needs is to service 3-4 guys per day.

Wow.  I have never had a more difficult time distinguishing between trolling and legitimate progressive insanity until I read the comments on that site.

"Prostitute – Washington, DC$500 per day"

are they talking about the ones inside the capitol building, or outside?

Anyone working for IRS is just an enforcer for the Mob.

Taxation is the equivalent of protection money.

You have to sell your soul to work for .gov

These prices are high n USA "E" $20 a tab and coke $50 a gram or $120 a ball.

8 ball is still $120? Damn that shit must be cut so many times.

Hillary and Huma scissoring?

I cannot believe, for the life of me, that you actually had the gall to mention 'scissoring', albeit by 'the' Billy Bob's Mad Cow Disease, in an article with 'Tiger Penis', in the title.

But, that would explain why the Hills-Have-Eyes was seen in an off the path  Hamptons 'corner' store parking lot, troll-aping `round in raggedy ass Joan Crawford 'fuck me quick pumps' and a patched up 'leisure suit ,with, of course, reenforced, 'sown in' seams of a contrasting thread color, screeching like some 'nails scratching the chalkboard', off the meds' schitziod, "Eight Inches or Less".

You should be ashamed of yourself!.

Cocaine does not cost $300/gram in the US.  Way lower than that but definitely not $8 per gram low.  Not that I would know about such things from direct experience, it's just what people tell me.

A lot of these prices seem way off.

seek's picture

I noticed the same. Some of the stuff is trvial to look up -- escorts advertise, for example, and in DC it's more like $500 per hour, not day. Maybe an ugly streetwalker makes that.

Whoever put the list together missed some pretty obvious research sources.

TER has extensive reviews by country and city - a great Hobbyist resource.

All the hacking stuff seems in line with what I have seen. But if you go down that rabbit hole, you would just do it yourself for nearly free.

The best was someone showing how to manipulate the online casinos, so you always win. They were selling security but posted some of the how tos in a passworded site because he wasn't happy some sites didn't take him seriously.
